LONDON and SYDNEY, Australia and JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, April 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FXCM Group, LLC (“FXCM Group’ or ‘FXCM’), a leading international provider of online foreign exchange trading, CFD trading, cryptocurrencies and related services, has launched commission-free single-stock CFD trading (share CFDs), enabling retail clients to trade CFDs on individual company shares like Tesla, Apple, Facebook, and others.  FXCM will be gradually rolling out the new single stock CFDs to its entire client base over the coming weeks.
