Dan Perry, managing director at FXCM Australia says:

"FXCM opened its Australia office in early 2009 to act as headquarters for the company's expansion into the South Pacific region. As it has expanded its local reach and global footprint into the Pacific, the company has hired staff locally to provide clients with quick deposit, withdrawal and support services.

FXCM Australia Ltd. currently provides a full package of currency trading products, services and education, and is pleased to include CFDs. Everything we do at FXCM is driven by client demand. Our clients have long asked to apply the no re-quote business logic we adopted for our award-winning forex service to the index, oil and metals CFD marketplace."
