ECN platforms are gaining traction. Cyprus based broker FXPro is launching an ECN platform named xTrader. Among the features are a No-Dealing Desk function (NDD), guaranteed execution and no re-quotes, interbank pricing and more.
I believe that having an ECN option is an advantage for every forex broker out there. Apart from providing more options to the clients, this model is more fair to them.
