How FXDD works
FXDD deals as principal acting as the counterparty to most of its clients’ trades, which places a huge trust on the Firm to offer the best execution to its clients. FXDD executes clients’ orders at the best price offered by our credited Liquidity Providers. The system is set to automatically select the best available price and show it to the clients on our online platforms. FXDD considers ‘price’, ‘cost’ and ‘speed’ as highly important execution factors, and other execution factors such as size and likelihood of execution having relatively lower importance.
FXDD provides two types of execution venues. Primarily, FXDD operates as a principle which means that the Company is the counterparty of client transactions.
In rare circumstances, the Company also operates as an agent whereby client transactions are received and transmitted to other reputable liquidity providers.
FXDD receives raw price data for all trading instruments from its Liquidity Providers (“LPs”) and Data Providers such as regulated markets, multilateral trading facilities (MTFs), executing brokers, etc.
Execution venue for Forex standard accounts - FXDD MALTA Ltd (91%), Pro accounts - FXDD MALTA Ltd (70%). The rest - LPs.
Investor Compensation Scheme
The Investor Compensation Scheme administered by the Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA), the Maltese regulator, provides limited protection for certain classes of investors. FXDD Malta Ltd.

FXDD Malta’s customers will be eligible for compensation of 90% of their investment up to a maximum limit of €20,000. Professional Clients or Eligible counter parties are not eligible for compensation as they fall out of the scope of the Investor Compensation Scheme which was set up as a protection for retail customers. Negative Balance Protection
FXDD Malta Ltd, provides clients with the benefit of Negative Balance Protection at its own cost which means that any client trading losses cannot exceed the available funds in the client accounts and client account balances will never become negative.
