I don't see the "Invalid Argument error here, but you should be using  
parse() instead of read(), if the content comes from a String:

#!/usr/bin/env ruby -wKU

require "rubygems"
require "faster_csv"

csv = <<END_CSV
"ClientAccountID 
","CurrencyPrimary 
","AssetClass 
","Symbol","OptionFutureCode","Quantity","MarkPrice","CostBasisPrice"
"6814789","USD","STK","CSUN","","125","11.9800","12.1750"
"6814789","USD","STK","SIMO","","150","20.0500","19.186667"
END_CSV

p FCSV.parse(csv, :col_sep => ",", :headers => true)

__END__

Hope that helps.
