Lucid Markets Trading Limited was established in 2009 and is registered in England & Wales. The company operates as a non-bank electronic market making and investment company in the institutional foreign exchange market section. Lucid Markets was incorporated by FXCM Inc. in 2011 and is currently based in the United Kingdom and operates as a subsidiary of FXCM Inc. which is a leading provider of online currency trading and related services on global financial markets worldwide. The acquisition of Lucid Markets was intended to bolster FXCM’s institutional business. By the way, Lucid Markets cannot not be a liquidity provider to FXCM’s retail agency FX offering. This acquisition was fulfilled as a part of the process of transforming FXCM’s institutional foreign exchange business in order to migrate customers to the company’s own in-house institutional platform which would make the company competitive in the institutional space and result in quite significant increases in the company’s institutional volume of activities. The acquisition of Lucid Markets which is leading market maker is a natural extension of the evolution of FXCM’s institutional business. This acquisition also improves the expertise and talents of one of the best investment companies in the FX world.
