2 reviews on FXCM

  1. One of the finest and biggest brokers before CFH crush, but now very poor service, big slippages and a lot of other tricks in their pockets. My friend also had an a/c with them and told me about their freezing games with his platform. Now I’m trading with true ECN broker and happy with that. If you had such problems, I can help you.

  2. FXCM is a really good broker. They work almost twenty years and if they are still on the market, they are surely not scam. Personally I’ve been trading with them for three years and for the time being I’m completely satisfied with their products, services, trading conditions, commissions etc.
