FAQs

How does FOREX.com make money?

Our main source of revenue comes from the market spread. In effect, you pay a little more for the buy price, and receive a little less for the sell price. For example, if EUR/USD is trading in the market at 1.2164, our 1-point spread means it would have a buy price of 1.21645 and a sell price of 1.21635.
