Ok thank you.

I did not realize you guys had FX thru FXCM. I called them yesterday to find more. They called me this morning. I told them I use Ninja and they did not tell me anything special like you are.

I huge part of the reason I am with IB is because of their acct security with 2 step authentication. FXCM does not have this and I assume you guys don't as well since you use them. Correct?

Not sure why that would be the case? See here - NinjaTrader - FXCM


I fill it odd that more brokers don't have more secure technology like two step authentication, but just a simple password like a free email account might have.

Where a lot of money is on deposit (>$100k) I think it makes sense to secure it well. Big part of the reason I like IB, they get that.


It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.
