Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

-- Big Mike

We are about to release beta. FXCM is just completing some compliance items and we are about to finish an informational page on our website. We are almost there.

Wasting Money

Futures Edge on FIO
Why would you trade an uncentralised market, where you are exposed to dishonest practices without protection. Trading is difficult emough through a centralised exchange like the cme. You would have more luck putting your hand down a toliet and pulling out a gold watch then you would with making money, trading through scam market makers like fxcm and forex at large.

Hi Andreas,

We can't comment on any on-going discussions with our regulators that haven't been publicly announced yet, but the extent of available information is located in our 10Q: FXCM - Investor Relations - SEC Filings

Over the years, the regulatory environment has improved in the forex market, and we have been advocates for greater transparency. That is why FXCM is publicly traded (NYSE:FXCM) and aside from being regulated in the UK, is also regulated in the US, Hong Kong and Australia. We have always addressed any of our regulators concerns and are proud to be providing trading services to over 200,000 live accounts with over $1 billion in client equity.

Jason

@Jason Rogers

Hi Jason,

Do you know if it is possible to use Ninjatrader as platform if we are a resident of Canada. I could not find the information on your site. Thanks.

Hi Trendisyourfriend,

Yes, you can open a NinjaTrader account. Since, you live in Canada, it would be through Friedberg Direct: www.fxcm.ca

Aside from the Friedberg application, you'd also need to complete a Letter of Direction form for NinjaTrader. It's a PDF file. I can send it to you, if you email me at jrogers@fxcm.com

Letter of Direction form for NinjaTrader.

@Jason Rogers, what is this form? And can you attach it here?

Is this needed because of Canada, or because of NinjaTrader?

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

The letter of direction form is needed for all NinjaTrader accounts even with FXCM US and FXCM UK.

Thanks for suggesting that I attach the PDF file here. Hadn't thought of that.

I've attached it here.
