Opened an account with FXCM to learn forex trading. So far, very strange platform on MT4, and customer support is very questionable. They will answer the phone, but not know how to do much. I ask questions, they do not know answers. I chat with tech support, they say something can't be done, meanwhile I located on their site how to do it. Promised a response back, then nothing. Even posted here in two threads, have not been answered in either yet.

Many concerns with them already, two days in.

Hi Gary,

I'm sorry that you haven't yet received responses to the tech questions you posed to our customer support team. My colleague Suhail and I responded today to the two questions you posted about FXCM in other threads on this forum. As I mentioned in my other post to you, if you can send me an email at jrogers@fxcm.com attaching the correspondence you've had with Sierra Charts and our tech support team, I will follow up with my colleagues on this to work on a solution for you.

Jason

Thanks Jason, yes I just read Suhail's response. Great.

There are literally probably 20 emails. Today I got a little further, spoke with "L Irvine" (I did not write it down but sent emails) He was a lot more helpful than anyone else so far, and we have a plan that we will follow up with on Monday. if that falls apart I'll let you know.

I did finally get live on MT4, just would really prefer to keep Sierra Chart. I am on platform number 4, and am still madly in love with SC. I selected FXCM out of available options for Sierra Chart. Made my decision after reading their Help section about it.

I split my initial $400.00 in half, $200 per account, using MT4 and SC in a competition of sorts.

This week I will trade currencies in two $200 accounts, one using MT4, and the other using Sierra Chart. MT4 has a head start and is ahead by around $13.00, so the pressure is on for SC.
