traders participate in the forex market with forex brokers. There are
mainly two types of forex brokers: market makers and electronic
communications networks (ECNs). In this article we want to introduce the
latter type of brokers, the ecn forex broker.What is an ECN forex broker?ECN forex broker is a financial expert that provides the clients with direct access to other forex participants in the currency market
by using electronic communications networks (ECNs). Unlike market
makers, which always trade against their clients to make profit, an ECN
forex broker only creates opportunities of trading between forex
traders.How does an ECN forex broker work?The ECN
forex brokers provide a medium by passing on the prices for different
market participants such as banks, market makers and other traders in
the market. Then the best bid/ask quotes will be displayed on the
trading platforms based on these prices. ECN forex brokers also serve as
counterparties to forex transactions, but it is a settlement that they
operate on instead of pricing basis. While fixed spreads are offered by
some market makers, spreads of currency pairs can be very different,
determined by the trading activities of the currency pair. In active
trading periods, sometimes you cannot get ECN spread at all, especially
in those very liquid currency pairs such as the majors (EUR/USD,
GBP/USD, USD/JPY, USD/CHF) and some currency crosses.Pros and cons of the ECN forex brokerThe ECN forex broker has both advantages and disadvantages.
