August 30, 2019 | AtoZ Markets - Effex Capital which is the unit involved in FXCM’s exit from the US retail Forex market got an extra time to decide on how to proceed further with a lawsuit against the National Futures Association (NFA).
As per the previous report, Effex Capital lost its appeal in the lawsuit with the Seventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals issuing Final Judgment upholding the District Court’s ruling in the case. According to the firm, NFA had mentioned it in the documents related to a settlement between the NFA and FXCM.
Moreover, before taking NFA to the court, the Court of Appeals sided with the District Court in that Effex Capital has not exhausted all administrative remedies available.

However, it is also true that Effex Capital does not want to give up and requested an extension of time to decide for further actions. The firm said that the extra time was only necessary to allow the plaintiffs-appellants an opportunity to determine whether they will file a petition for rehearing en banc in this matter.
