You will find a ton of mixed reviews for FXCM and many others on the Forex Peace Army site.

I use fxcm for quite a while now. Spread is variable but pretty low. Service is good. One of my pending orders didnt kick in last week because of a technical problem. But it would have been profitable so i sent them an email. They answered the same day and i got the profit credited to my account!

can anyone tell me why there is so much negativity written about FXCM and why regardless of this, they seem to ignore the problems whilst they continue to eat up any small stray brokers laying around in their attempt at world domination. What I mean is this, if you have the capital to try and take over the world (the Lex Luthor of FX) should you not 1st try and fix the so called technical (none MT4) problems? No?

Most broker reviews on 'credible' forex sites are biased. They are written either by brokers themselves or their competitors and you can't really tell who's writing the real non-biased opinion and who's getting paid to post fake reviews.

Best thing for you is to ask people you know and trust.

FXCM was a positive experience for me so far.

Default I like FXCM

I like the FXCM Mirco Trading Station II beacause:

It is easy to use.

You can see all the account at a glance.

Placing orders is simple.

I moved my account to the UK so I could hedge and have one cancels the other orders, OCO.

The spread low, on average 4.7 on G/J, the majors under 2.

You have to be OK without phone service when you have a micro account. I done OK with a few little problems that have come up using their web page and email.

I'm a real trader, telling the truth.

I've been using FXCM Australia's MT4 and find their response terrible when the orders are going to dealers - I have sat there for 10 seconds or more before hitting cancel.

How is their newsfeed? Is it still Thomson/IFR? Is it available with the MT4 platform?

I agree with you
I would say the best advice is to judge by yourself and get a demo account get familiar with the platform and the service, Don t invest b4!

Hi Jon,

The MT4 platform is setup with market execution so all orders will be filled as at best market orders. Because of this you shouldn't be seeing a message with the ability to cancel an order. And the MT4 accounts are also using No Dealing Desk execution so trades are sent directly to the banks for execution.

If you would like me to help investigate this, please feel free to contact me at jrogers@fxcm.com and I will help.

Hi ajt1970,

The IFR news feed is no longer provided by FXCM. Instead we have created a news feed called the ForexStream which you can find on DailyFX http://forexstream.dailyfx.com/ . We also re-launched the DailyFX website on Monday if you haven't visited in a while.

There's been an important update to the FXCM Trading Station II. Here's what is new:


1. Net Stops/Limits added to the summary window. This is only for FXCM US accounts:



2. Close All and Close All for Symbol added to summary window. This is only for FXCM US accounts:



3. Lastly, the Marketscope chart will display an arrow indicating where you opened the trade:

All live MT4 accounts with FXCM now have access to free VPS hosting. You can request a VPS login by submitting your account details on the FXCM UK site http://www.fxcm.co.uk/metatrader.jsp . Click on the button in the middle of the page that says "Free MT4 VPS"

If you're not familiar with VPS...

VPS lets you run MT4 on a remote server rather than running the platform on your own computer. This means if your computer crashes or you lose internet connection, your MT4 platform is still running. This is very important for traders using Expert Advisors ensuring your trading strategy is running 24 hours a day.
