Forex Designations

Forex Dealer Members

These individuals literally make the Forex market. Without them there would be no trading opportunity for the retail investor. They extend the credit, handle clearing, back officer operations, and provide an orderly market for investors.

A Forex dealer combines the roles of a market maker and specialist in the equity market. The primary role of the market maker is to provide liquidity through tradeable prices to the market. The specialist's role is to intervene in the market when temporary price disparity occurs. Forex market makers provide liquidity and maintain an orderly market. When a retail trader sees a quote on his or her screen, it is coming directly from the Forex dealer member, and that person functions as the counterparty.
