Any potential profits generated on a monthly basis in a Profit Sharing account can off-set this amount.
And even in the case, that you have a month with negative PnL, a Profit Sharing model works out cheaper when compared to a Classic account, since with a Classic account you pay a mark-up plus volume based fees.
Your trades execute with FXCM's competitive spreads and you pay a 25% of your profits to the Trader only if they have earned you a successful return on your investment.
No win, no performance fee type situation.
In contrast to a Classic Accounts where you must also pay a volume based fee even if you aren't profitable that month, the Profit Sharing performance fee is not payable if you don't have any returns on your investment. You only need to pay a monthly subscription fee.
