One of the finest and biggest with this Broker

One of the finest and biggest brokers before CFH crush, but now very poor service, big slippages and a lot of other tricks in their pockets. My friend also had an a/c with them and told me about their freezing games with his platform. Now I’m trading with true ECN broker and happy with that. Add me in skype - vovkfx, I will help you to choose the best broker for you.

The broker is big and solid, I had no issue with them for more than 4 years. the platform is fine but the service is not the best.

I traded with FXCM in the past 2 years.
Spread is higher than forex.com which is a minus (EUR/ USD for example: FXCM +3 and forex.com +1.8)
Plus side: customer service is a bit more responsive (at least here); TS2 platform runs a bit more stable than MT4 platform but slippage happens.

Very happy with these guys. They have copped some bad press for a case against them re slippage, however I was repaid [a small amount] and in my view this experience for them will keep them honest as the regulators are watching. Spreads are now close to the industry's best and any dealings with them are very professional and efficient.

2 of my small trades were not closed at limit although price past my limit. I tried to adjust my limit and stop loss on the chart but no change would happen. Fxcm was controlling the positions and not letting me do any changes to the trades. Then later, the price moved against me and hit the stop loss and closed my positions a bit past my stop loss( lost even more than the stop loss price. Their response was that there was not enough liquidity to close them at limit( profit), although Each position was 20000(.2 of one standard lot). Also the excuse was that limit is guaranteed price but not execution while stop loss is guaranteed execution but not price. But they haven't answered me why I couldn't change the limit and stop loss and my trades. I try to find 100 excuses before condemning, but I know Fxcm intentionally did not let the positions executed, limit and stop loss get adjusted and closed at past the stop losses. They haven't replied me why I could not change the positions' limit and stop the way they ignored twice my request for a permission form to use trade interceptor app because it is so advanced while Fxcm app is too behind. I hope other traders let me know if that happened to them too.

one of the best. I trade what I want, when I want, risk is my own. the best educational resources I could find is at DailyFX which belongs to FXCM. client support - excellent. advice : if you like to risk your money during huge events - that`s your own risk, do not blame anyone for your mistake if you lose it. if you are right at wrong time -> than you are wrong. remember that trading forex is risky .

I do recommend FXCM.

Spreads & executions are the worst! I don't even know why I keep $50 with this broker. US Based Brokers are the Worst in the Forex Industry. What's the point of being heavily regulated if the client gets screwed all the time with every trade. FRANK-DODD ACT SUCKS!

Definitely major slippage and the spreads are high. Constantly try to make a trade and will get off quotes or invalid price especially when spreads drop low. They very rarely allow you to get the low spread. Tired of their crap looking for a more reputable reliable broker.

I just complaint FXCM of heavily Slippage when the news upcoming ,and often can't login with andriod phone at the evening , .here is My order 51311048, it is about 2012-10-5 USA payrolls news announcement that time. I buy an ounce of gold, stop-loss set at 1787 prices, stop-loss is triggered on the world standard time on October 5 12:30:00, but perform at the price of 1,779.89, a $ 7.11 slippage.but the FXCM's response that Slippage due to appear after the announcement of the payrolls data, the selling price of the gold from 1790.14 instant gapped down to a price of 1778.19. The stop trigger execute your stop price is better than gapped after price upward after the price. Such as the direction of your orders to sell, and now I want to be adjust my loss of $7.11. the above pattern display the near 12 gap second between 20:29:59 to 20:30:11, so that is a reason I doubt the FXCM intentionally to do it . I think this platform will be good for the long-term trend investment.

I would put highly recommended if during news they do NOT have a huge slippage.
For instance I executed my 2 outstanding orders few minutes before news . One is buy 20 pips up to market price another sell 20 pips bellow market price.
and corresponding S/L for each order. Usually slippage is more than 20 pips for order price and to make it worse they do not maintain s/l i.e close me with a large slippage too.
I have been told that is a normal with all brokers . Is it true. Otherwise they (FXCM people) were nice and any other question answered properly and execute orders too.
