FXCM has released a stellar set of results for 2008, further underlining how profitable FX can be. The company says it revenue rose 78% to $313.6 million from $175.8 million in 2007, and that ebitda came in at $132 million. Around $6.8 trillion was traded in 2008 on the company’s various platforms.

The company says that it expects further growth in 2009, driven by an increase in market share and greater interest in FX from the retail sector.
