NEW YORK, March 30, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Global Brokerage, Inc., formerly known as FXCM Inc., ("FXCM" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:FXCM) of the April 10, 2017 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain officers.

The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all those who purchased FXCM securities between March 15, 2012 and February 6, 2017 (the "Class Period").  The case, Khoury v. FXCM Inc., et al., No. 1:17-cv-00916 was filed on February 7, 2017, and has been assigned to Judge Ronnie Abrams.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making materially false and/or misleading statements regarding the Company's business, operations and prospects.  The lawsuit alleges that, among other things, FXCM misled investors that its "No Dealing Desk" platform had no conflicts of interest with its customers.

Specifically, on February 6, 2017, the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission ("CFTC") announced that it banned the Company from operating in the U.S. and ordered that it pay a $7 million fine for taking positions opposite its customers.  The CFTC revealed that "between September 4, 2009 and through at least 2014, FXCM engaged in false and misleading solicitations of FXCM's foreign exchange customers by concealing its relationship with its most important market maker and by misrepresenting that its ‘No Dealing Desk' platform had no conflicts of interest with its customers."

On this news, FXCM's share price fell $3.40, or 49.64%, from its closing price of $6.85 on February 6, 2017, to close at $3.45 on February 7, 2017.
