Lucid Markets remains among the businesses in the “FXCM family”, despite the broker actively marketing Lucid and other non-core businesses for sale. In May this year, FXCM announced the sale of its stake in FastMatch to Euronext. FXCM Group has said that it will receive approximately $55.6 million for its interest in FastMatch, with a portion held in escrow and subject to certain future adjustments including a share of a $10 million earnout if certain performance targets of FastMatch are met.
The latest report from Lucid Markets shows that during 2016, it continued to provide liquidity to the Forex market but registered annual profit, excluding amortization, of $11.99 million, down 43% from $21.2 million in 2015. This reflects a 29% year-over-year drop in turnover to $26.3 million. This drop was blamed on decrease in currency volatility.
