VPS Free Hosting: Maintain a balance of 5,000 base currency (or 500k JPY, and 40k HKD) on your MT4 account, and the VPS is yours at no cost. (For example, if your account denomination is Australian Dollars (AUD), that is an account balance of 5,000 AUD). If you do not meet this requirement at the end of the month, a fee of 30 base currency (or 3k JPY, and 240 HKD) may be debited from any of your FXCM account(s) to cover the VPS cost.
