No. FXDD will not charge commissions on trades made by self-directed clients on either the FXDD trader or MetaTrader platforms. FXDD is a commission free broker and earns its income from the spread.

Yes. The function of a “dealing desk” is the subject of much speculation in the Forex business these days. Some firms promote the fact of “no dealing desk.” In all cases of retail trading, the pricing the customer sees is the pricing the customer receives.
Dealers, such as FXDD, receive institutional level liquidity [pricing] from their global banks and then, with the spread widened, stream them out to their customers. Does this mean that customers are guaranteed no slippage on all orders? No. In times of extreme volatility, clients will not always get the price they clicked on. The market is a dynamic event and prices change quickly and latency may affect pricing. The critical factors here are the volatility of the market and the latency of the connection. The role of FXDD’s dealing desk is to manage the liquidity streams between them and their market makers and to ensure that the customers always enjoy competitive pricing and spreads.
No. Currently, US law does not permit forex funds to be held in segregated accounts regardless of where the funds are held.
