In a bid to encourage greater transparency within the retail FX industry FxPro is pleased to announce its latest slippage statistics for the month of February:
This is an important statistic for retail clients as it shows what proportion of trades were executed either in their favour or against them. The recent increase in volatility has made slippage all the more important so the greater transparency in respect to these statistics, the better informed a client can be about how fairly they are being treated by their broker. Spot FX is an OTC (Over the Counter) product as opposed to being traded on exchange, therefore clients can experience trades being executed at a different price to the one displayed at the time, which is referred to as slippage.
“At FxPro we understand the importance of putting the customer first, which is why we want to be at the forefront of promoting fairness and transparency. Through our automated No Dealing Desk trading environment, backed by a Negative Balance Protection policy, we are proud to be a trusted broker for many clients globally. We encourage all of our peers to do the same.” Psimolophitis, FxPro CEO.
