FXCM Inc. (NYSE: FXCM) today announced certain key operating metrics for December 2012 for its retail and institutional foreign exchange business.

December 2012 Retail Trading Metrics

December 2012 Institutional Trading Metrics

“We are pleased with how we have weathered muted foreign exchange markets in 2012 with our overall retail volumes decreasing only 5% to $3.6 trillion despite a 23% decline in average daily volatility to multi-year lows, as measured by the CVIX(3),” said Drew Niv, President and Chief Executive Officer. “In particular, in 2012 we were very successful in attracting larger customer accounts and while its positive effect on our trading volumes was offset by the unfavorable market environment, it positions us well for the future.” “While still early, 2013 has started strong and we look forward to our growth initiatives gaining traction this year, even if market conditions do not improve” he continued.

More information, including historical results for each of the above metrics, can be found on the investor relations page of the Company's corporate web site, www.fxcm.com.
