A little over a year ago Morgan Business Trial Group has announced that it filed a class action suit against FXDD. In basis of the complaint is the allegedly aggressive and misleading marketing by FXDD as well as that it is in fact a market maker which goes after its clients and doesn’t STP all orders as it claims. The Plaintiff Hugo Cruz has allegedly lost almost $300,000 due to these practices.
Two months later Morgan withdrew and refiled the suit saying that: “It’s just a procedural step in amending our Complaint. We anticipate fleshing out more allegations.”
Now all this comes to an end as the New York court dismissed the suit with prejudice.

Green, FXDD Managing Director and Chief Compliance Officer. “Given the tumultuous economy and its impact on the investment community, it is understandable that some traders may be frustrated with the markets. However, FXDD is not to blame.”
