NEW YORK, Feb. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC notifies investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against FXCM Inc. ("FXCM" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: FXCM) and certain of its officers, on behalf of a class who purchased FXCM securities between March 15, 2012 and February 6, 2017, inclusive (the "Class Period"). Such investors are encouraged to join this case by visiting the firm's site: www.bgandg.com/fxcm.
This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) between September 4, 2009 through at least 2014, FXCM's U.S. subsidiary were engaged in false and misleading solicitations of its retail foreign exchange customers by hiding its relationship with its most important market maker and by misrepresenting that its "No Dealing Desk" platform had no conflicts of interest with its customers; (2) FXCM's U.S. subsidiary made false statements to the National Futures Association about its relationship with the market maker; and (3) consequently, Defendants' statements regarding FXCM's business, operations and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
On February 6, 2017, the Commodities Futures Trading Commission ("CFTC") found that FXCM was engaged in false and misleading solicitations of its retail foreign exchange customers by hiding its relationship with FXCM's most important market maker and the fact that the Company's "No Dealing Desk" platform had conflicts of interest with FXCM's customers. Due to the above, CFTC barred FXCM from operating in the United States. Following this news, FXCM stock dropped $3.40 per share, or 50%, to close at $3.45 on February 7, 2017.
