Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC (“KSF”) and Former Attorney General of Louisiana, Charles C. Foti, Jr. announce the commencement of an investigation into FXCM, Inc. (“FXCM” or the “Company”) (NYSE: FXCM) to determine whether it has violated federal securities laws by issuing false and misleading statements to its shareholders.

Only 3 months removed from the Company’s IPO, shares of FXCM closed down 13% today - to a low of $12.05 on heavy volume - following the release of results from last month that were “substantially” below expectations according to one analyst. William Katz at Citi wrote in a note that “the data calls into question our 2011-12 … growth assumptions and begin to suggest greater maturity in the business than previously contemplated.” Moreover, today’s decline comes on the heels of a lawsuit filed by an FXCM customer last week alleging fraud and racketeering, claiming that the Company has bilked thousands of customers out of hundreds of millions of dollars using deceptive and unfair trade practices.
