Share:





Glancy
Prongay & Murray LLP
("GPM") reminds investors of the April
10, 2017
 deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in the class
action filed on behalf of investors who purchased FXCM, Inc. ("FXCM" or
the "Company") (NASDAQ: FXCM)
securities between March 15, 2012 and February 6, 2017, inclusive
(the "Class Period"). FXCM investors have until April 10, 2017 to
file a lead plaintiff motion.

On February 6, 2017, the Commodities Futures Trading Commission ("CFTC")
found that FXCM was engaged in false and misleading solicitations of its
retail foreign exchange customers. According to the CFTC, FXCM covered
up both its relationship with the Company's most crucial market maker,
and that the fact that the Company's "No Dealing Desk" platform had
conflicts of interest with FXCM's customers.

The complaint filed in this lawsuit alleges that FXCM made materially
false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1)
between September 4, 2009 through at least 2014, FXCM's U.S. subsidiary
engaged in false and misleading solicitations of its retail 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; (2) FXCM's
U.S. subsidiary made false statements to the National Futures
Association about its relationship with the market maker; and (3) as a
result, Defendants' statements about FXCM's business, operations and
prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a
reasonable basis at all relevant times.

If you purchased or otherwise acquired FXCM shares during the Class
Period you may move the Court no later than April 10, 2017 to
request appointment as lead plaintiff. To be a member of the class you
need not take any action at this time; you may retain counsel of your
choice or take no action and remain an absent member of the Class. If
you wish to learn more about this action, or if you have any questions
