Additional Info
FXCM provides alternatives to traders to suit their individual needs. This includes allowing traders to "scalp," or make quick trades for potentially very small profits. A number of brokers do not allow this, but FXCM does which means day traders can potentially capitalize on even small market movements. Trading during news events is also allowed, but this does not mean there will be liquidity at the price desired.

FXCM also has a resource center called DailyFX. Through DailyFX traders can access trade signals, forex news and professional analysis. Traders also have access to Live Events, including trading seminars and information sessions. Through DailyFX, traders can also join the forums to interact with analysts, staff and other traders.

FXCM is registered with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) as a Futures Commission Merchant (FCM) and as a Retail Foreign Exchange Dealer (RFED). The company is also a member of the National Futures Association, which means the firm must meet strict financial standards and provide financial transparency and protection to traders.
