Beginner's Guide To FXCM: Advanced Features And Resources

Trading Station by FXCM offers many advanced features that traders can learn and attempt to make use of. Most of these features revolve around the charting platform and the ability to create custom indicators and automated trading strategies. Most of the advanced features are accessible through the Alerts and Trading Automation menu in Marketscope.
