FXCM Markets will only conduct business with a client for whom it considers such business to be appropriate and in assessing appropriateness, will rely on the information provided by the client in his/her/their application form. For this reason, it is essential that you immediately advise us in writing if there is subsequently an adverse change in the information you have provided.
^The execution type of Standard Account is defaulted to Dealing Desk execution while the execution type of Premium Account is defaulted to No Dealing Desk execution. For more information, please view Execution Risks. For Standard Account, some trading styles—scalping, news trading, EAs, and API trading — may be restricted as outlined in FXCM’s Business Terms
#Equity is your account balance plus the floating profit/loss of your open positions. The maximum account equity of a Standard Account is capped at $10,000. If a Standard Account client, at any time, holds more than $10,000 account equity in his/her account, FXCM may, in its sole discretion, transfer his/her execution type to No Dealing Desk forex execution and change the account leverage. The client may request FXCM to change his/her trading account to Dealing Desk account by submitting a Standard Account Transfer Form. Please contact FXCM staff for details.
¹Leverage: Leverage is a double-edged sword and can dramatically amplify your profits. It can also just as dramatically amplify your losses. Trading foreign exchange with any level of leverage may not be suitable for all investors. Leverage Tiers: Standard Accounts default to dealing desk execution on 400:1 leverage. Premium accounts default to No Dealing Desk execution on 100:1 leverage. Accounts with equity that surpasses 10,000 may be switched to 200:1 leverage. Accounts with equity that surpasses 20,000 may be switched to 100:1 leverage. FXCM may take steps to mitigate its risk arising from market making more effectively by, at our sole discretion and at any time and without previous consent, transferring your underlying account to our NDD execution offering.
†Order Limits: Standard Account allows for order sizes up to 2 million per trade while Premium Account allows for order sizes up to 50 million per trade. Traders have the ability to trade incremental sizes (multiple orders of maximum order size for the same pair).
