I see you used FXCM as a broker? are you still with them? I would like to use them too so i can stick to charting and trading all off of ninjatrader but I am nervous their collapse is around the corner since the swiss removed their currency ceiling.

Hi Zacgawn,

It's important to note that despite the events of January 15th, our capitalization remains at levels similar to before the SNB event and in excess of what is required by global regulators.

Furthermore, all of our regulated entities outside the US provide clients with segregated funds. Our UK-regulated entity through the FSCS even offers clients £50,000 per person in protection. Canada has similar insurance for retail traders of up to $1 million CAD.

For US traders, below are the latest capital figures for our US entity as compared to all other US-regulated forex brokers (RFEDs) as reported to the CFTC.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

We pride ourselves in continuing to provide our clients with the same level of service and support to which they are accustomed. Our customer equity grew by $68 million or 10% the last quarter. While $47 million of that increase was due to our acquisition of CitiFXPro, the remainder was organic. It's a strong vote of confidence that Citibank chose FXCM for its customers when they decided to exit the business in June.

I have not been able to log into my account as of yet. I spent more than 20 minutes in customer service, and when I finally got a representative and he then hungup on me. Then I waited another 20 minutes or so, and actually talked to one, and he said that they changed everybodies password, and the reason it was down was that too many people trying to log on. I hope my money is still there when I actually log on.

MyFXCM.com is running but due to high volume not everyone can access the site at the same time. If you have trouble loading the site now, please try again later to complete the reset of your password.

Similarly, our live customer support team is answering calls and live chats 24 hours a day as always, but you will experience longer wait times today due to high call volume from this incident.

Hi Jason,

I was able to log in. I had just made a deposit prior to maintenance.

The money is there and everything looks fine.

Thank you,

Hi all, just a heads up.. we're currently beta testing a new version of Trading Station Desktop and added stop limit orders along with some new market behavior indicators. We plan to roll out these updates to everyone on the platform within a few weeks, but if you want to test them now, you can download the latest version on our website. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments about the update.

If your Marketscope is shutting down ...


A week or so ago, my Marketscope window started shutting down intermittently - sometimes when I moved a stop, sometimes when I right-clicked to submit an order, etc.

I finally called Support and they were aware of an issue with an indicator named SHOWTIMETOEND, doing this. They're working on the issue but haven't resolved it yet. I added this indicator to one of the charts on my main 'scope about a week ago ...

So, if you're having issues and use this indicator, remove it from all charts in the Marketscope window and you should be good to go.

HTH
