ECN Broker

An ECN broker is a forex broker that is able to provide their clients with direct market access using the electronic communications networks (ECNs) to other market participants. The role of the broker here is just to match trades between the various market participants. Spreads provided by an ECN broker are tighter and because of this they normally charge a fixed commission for every trade.
