Will be interesting to see what, if any impact this will have on volumes and liquidity in the listed currency futures. I'd guess at least a portion of the retail FX flows will migrate over

For anyone trading FX at Interactive Brokers through NinjaTrader that will consider trading at FXCM, you need to open an account through NinjaTrader directly.

I would say little. Retail trading is a very small percentage of total volume.

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.

To use NinjaTrader at FXCM the account must be registered to NinjaTrader Brokerage. If you open an account directly at FXCM and wish to use NinjaTrader, there are some hoops to jump through to have the account configured. It will be more efficient by opening the account directly at NinjaTrader Brokerage.

If you have additional questions, you will need to speak with a registered broker of NinjaTrader Brokerage.

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?

I had an account on FXCM and was using MarketScope. When I requested that I be able to use NinjaTrader, they actually closed out my old account and created a new account that works with NinjaTrader. But now, I can use both NinjaTrader and Marketscope and trade with both connected at the same time.
