Have been trading with FXCM for several months by now. All in all I'm quite satisfied. I don't get huge profits so far, but I'm still learning the industry.
The FXCM demo account is one of the best things about this broker. I've had lots of fun using it. I didn't make any money of course but it's been a blast.
It's well known company and has a huge amount of credibility. Don't read this bullshit about frauds and money withdrawal delays. Never ever within my experience I had problems with delays, off quotes or transferring money to my paypal or bank account. Just think how many people complain on bad service but lost money only because of their greed and fear? Broker works perfectly, trading platform is one of the best you can find among others and it is regulated
FXCM has good trading conditions and always was a reliable broker. But now their reputation is more and more crushing down. A lot of problems with a platform and SL hunting made me change this broker to another one. Fortunately, I found really good ECN broker and now my trading are on the next level. If you are looking for a broker that you can trust with your money, I am ready to help.
Very disappointed of FXCM after regulators revealed some sort of scam with liquidity providers made by broker. You can find information on internet about this fraud. Mostly all liquidity providers had no access to interbank liquidity. Thus, fxcm has provided fake information. FXCM had a share and mutual interest using such a bad practice. No Tier-1 liquidity providers were found at all. Since that, all US customers were transferred to forex.com. I don't know if there is some way to work with new company... However, fxcm is not that good firm as it was for so many years. This is fact!
