, USA.

This people are first class scammer, they increase their spread any kind of way. Please put them out of business

, Nigeria.

You were Broker that caught my attention and all this while I have been praticing with your Demo account. But I was disappointed to discover that you don't accept e-currency and also the mininum account size is beyond me for now and moreover you don't even have mini account for small traders. Thanks

, Nigeria.

I think the major prolem customers experience with FXCM is that of transferring money into trading a/c. I had to move to a new meta trader operating broker majorly because of flexibility in mode of payment and withdrawal. Now I can make deposit into my account and even withdraw fund the same day.

Their response to enquiry is ok by me.

As per SLIPPAGES in whatever form, or throwing of SPIKES, I advise traders to master the concepts behind THE ELLIOT WAVE THEORY inside out and be able to apply it to their trade entry and exit. They must also endeavour to trade in the general market direction especially when scalping. This will surely protect them from losing much money if they are trading wrongly.

Best regards.

hello, please can anyone tell me the limitation for metatrader 4 acounts as stated above? i need to know because i need an acount with fxcm

, texas.

omg... i just can not find the right broker everywhere some body have to say something bad about some broker.. any help plz..

, n/a.

I have been practice/demo trading with FXCM Trading platform daily for a period of 5-6months

I honestly don't understand all the complaints that people are making.... I really don't perhaps once I open a live account with them I find out the reason, I hope not.

I believe, that no broker is perfect they have all got faults and of course they are there to benefit themselves, why else would they do it? would you open a business and try to help people rather than yourself? that wouldn't be a smart idea... you'd prob go bankrupt from handing out free cash to your employee's everyday and telling them dn't worry I know your sick and have been all year and yes I know you are crap at your job but hey heres a bonus! Right....

If your good at trading and your good at your job, then you should be reaping what you sow if you suck and get stopped out each time your obviously going against the trend... your analysis is all wrong, I do understand that at times I have noticed with some stop losses it seems to jump there for no reason and stop you out and then continue back up almost straight away... I compared to other brokers and noticed that FXCM platform most certainly something odd going on, but you also have to realize that you can't always put a 30 pip loss or limit because at times you have to know that its not going to work.

Its easy to judge and to blame someone else because no one really wants to admit its their fault do they now.... If you can't admit your own mistakes your just going to go from broker to broker thinking they are all scammers!

Better educate yourself slap yourself across the face wake up realize its a greedy world. No one is going to help you make money no one.

Comes down to capital too. If your only starting with 2,000 well good luck to you! I know I couldn't do that its like any business the more capital you have the more likely you will stay in business and not head down hill... if you got 2 grand wowee best be 100% all the time cause not going to take much of a lose to end up out of the game and on the side line balling your eyes out.

, Malaysia..

I have been trading with FXCM for quite some time now. And any problems that happened to any of these traders here never occur to me except for my own connection problem. The problem might came from you traders and blaming the broker for not making a profit is not going to change anything. The only complain to FXCM is the time they transfer our withdrawal, it took about a week for the money to be deposited into my bank account. Other than that, its a wonderful experience. And great trading platform. Thumbs up!

, essex uk.

i have used FXCM for some time and they are helpfull with the best trading platform.

Mmaking money is our job, helping is theirs..

, south africa.

i used them a wile ago and had bad slippages lost so much money that i stop trading dont find there help dest a problem but wont go back to them

, Malaysia.

Fxcm is really good!!!...i can get hundreds pips every day!!!

, Malaysia.

This FXCM is no good and selfish. The never talk abour how to withdraw invester profit or deposit. This is the MOST, MOST important thing for a trader. They talk only about depositing. FXCM useless

, TN, USA.

Nasty customer service reps, had a micro account and there were so many technical issues with the server. Lost so many trades gone against me because the site would go down when I would try to close. It was down so much of the time. It's down right now (9:00 am est 12/20) as a matter of fact that's why I'm surfing to find a dependable broker. To call in the problem and get a nasty rep on the phone or the chat or get an auto reply for emails. Just not reliable. There's potential there with a zippy trading platform, but there's an attitude problem for sure. Deposits were a problem too. Never knew when it would credit to the account anywhere from 2 hours to days and days for debit card. Am looking for a different broker. maybe forex.com, capital gains or gft. am checking them out as thoroughly as possible...

, Nigeria.

i sincerely desire to open an account with your institution

, Missouri.

I agree with Lawrence from Australia, it always seems to work in their favor and they aren't liable for anything. I've had my connection disrupted after trying to put in orders i have never had any disruptions in my connection till having fxcm trading platform installed. Please stay away from this one.

, Australia.

stay well away, total scam, I cannot recall how many times I've been scammed by this company now, I've got screen shots and charts and feeds from various brokers to prove, they will stop you out although the price next reached it, their software will freeze up all too often, at times when it's going against your position the software will freeze up not allowing you to close your positions, orders will be filled at huge slips although the price wasn't volatile, and at volatile times it will take out your orders with huge slips, and take out your limit and create an instant losing trade, ie. if you had a order to take profit at 30 pips, it will fill your order with a 40 pips slippage and create a 10 pip lost instantly! Do not risk your money with this broker, stay well away!

I'm looking for a new broker now, hope this website would help!
