An ECN (Electronic Communications Network) type broker gives its clients direct access to other Network participants and consolidates price quotations to match bid/ask orders thereby offering clients the best price available. This is in contrast to a Market Maker type model where the broker trades against its clients and the clients’ losses is a profit to the broker. The ECN broker makes profits based on commission, thereby avoiding any conflict of interest with its clients.
