...following weak results posted by rival Gain Capital (Forex.com).
A very dramatic day in the FX world continued late Wednesday, when FXCM pre-reported its Revenues for Q4 and full-year 2011. FXCM will report its complete 2011 results in about two weeks' time, on March 14. However, apparently prompted by Gain Capital's just-released weak Q4 results, FXCM seemingly deemed it necessary to reassure the markets that things were different (i.e. better) at FXCM, and that no big negative surprises were in store.
