ODL is a part of FXCM and offers spread betting with forex, oil, gold and stock market indices.
Established in the UK in 1994, as Options Direct Limited
ODL Securities is a leading, independent FOREX, derivatives, equity and commodity trading house.
Originally founded in 1994 as an Options House with just 28 staff, ODL Securities Limited received a capital injection from new shareholders in 2004 and a new senior management team was appointed. Since then, a wide range of enhancements have been implemented across all areas of the business, and new products introduced.
In 2010 ODL Group Limited (“ODL”) was acquired by U.S.-based FXCM Holdings LLC (“FXCM”)*. This combination creates a global forex and CFD-trading powerhouse. ODL’s strong UK and European operations provide an excellent compliment to FXCM’s sizable operations in both the United States and Asia.
Founded in 1999, FXCM is one of the largest forex brokers, regulated by several financial regulators including the Financial Services Authority in the UK and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission in the U.S. FXCM is one of very few forex and CFD brokers to regularly publish its balance sheet.
The combined companies have over $425 million in customer funds trading on platforms offered by FXCM, over 165,000 tradable accounts, and over 700 employees worldwide to support you and your clients.
