As expected OptionXpress has registered as an RFED with the CFTC and will soon become open for retail forex business. XPRESSTRADE, LLC (www.xtfx.com) is capitalized at $22,841,980 and already has $17,720 in retail forex customers obligations. OptionsXpress is the second ‘traditional’ broker to start offering retail foreign exchange after TradeStation.
For now there’s no real forex offering on OptionXpress’s website but this should change soon as its RFED status has been approved.
