Where did you read that Friedberg is a market maker?
All Friedberg Direct clients trade forex using FXCM’s No Dealing Desk (NDD) execution.
The purpose of our NDD model is to provide transparent and fair execution. Every trade is executed back to back with one of multiple liquidity providers that compete with each other to provide you with price quotes. The best bid and ask prices available to Friedberg Direct are streamed to your FXCM platform with a fixed pip markup added which acts as a commission. NDD execution offers the following benefits:
[li]No conflict of interest between broker and trader
[/li][li]No dealer intervention in trades
[/li][li]Liquidity providers do not see your stops, limits, and entry orders
[/li][li]Competition reduces the potential for market manipulation by price providers
