FXCM Markets may approve or reject my Request in its sole and absolute discretion.

  8. I understand that changing any of my account(s) to a Standard Account may carry with it inherent conflicts of interest and may result in changes to how my trades are handled. I fully understand how orders are executed and have thoroughly reviewed FXCM's dealing desk execution risks.
  9. I understand that if my FXCM UK account was introduced by a Referring Agent, my new FXCM Markets account will be setup with the same Referring Agent.
  10. If my existing FXCM UK trading account is denominated in a different currency other than the currency I selected above, my existing funds will be converted at a conversion rate with the addition of a markup.
