With Market Execution, your order is matched within seconds and sent for execution via liquidity generated through FXCM Direct offering you price efficiency. There is no central exchange in the FXCM market, meaning liquidity is accumulated via major Tier 1 global banks and top liquidity providers. With Market Execution you can get the best available price currently on the market, what’s more there is an opportunity to open the order at a better price, this is known as positive slippage. Keep in mind, this could mean that your order is filled at a different price to the one originally shown.
"Gapping" refers to an occurrence whereby the market moves from one quoted price and that this second quote is significantly different to the first. Where such an event happens and where the second quote is through an order level (Stop Loss, Limit or New Order), when the first quote was not, this may trigger a Gapping event. There are a variety of reasons why this might happen. Some of the more usual, because the particular Underlying Market on which the order is placed has opened and started trading at a price significantly different from the previous session closing price; or during trading hours the Underlying Market may have become unusually volatile or illiquid for a period of time causing sudden dramatic price movements; or the Underlying Market may have gapped from one traded price to another, significantly different, traded price due to a piece of economic, political, environmental or corporate news. Moreover, we recommend clients limit their exposure when holding positions over the weekend or prior to market closing or during release of any political events and be aware that such gaps may occur.

FXCM reserves the right to discontinue an Islamic/SWAP-free account without warning. FXCM will invoke this right in case of suspicion of abuse, in which case ICM Capital may, at its sole discretion, decide to close all open positions in the account and deduct or add swaps for all transactions currently and/or previously made in the account and decline from accepting any further requests from the Client to be exempted from SWAP. All users of swap-free accounts shall agree with terms and conditions.
