"We are pleased to announce this transaction with FXCM, as it will allow us to focus our resources to expand our core international business," said Joseph Botkier, CEO of FXDD. "We are confident that FXCM will provide the same level of excellent service and trading environment that our account holders have experienced at FXDD."
