What is the fastest way to open a live account?
The fastest way to open an account is by applying online. If you successfully open and fund your account online, you may begin trading within one to two business days.
Opening an account is a simple, three-step process.
- Complete your application online in minutes. Once an application is received and processed, an account number will be sent by email within one to two business days. If you are issued a temporary ID, once the application is complete and funds are processed, a permanent account number will be sent.
- Submit the required documents. Typically, FXCM requires 2 documents: a Government Issued Identification and a Proof of Residence. You will be contacted if additional documents are needed. You may upload your documents to www.MyFXCM.com. Login using the username and password emailed to you upon completion of the application. If you are unable to login to www.MyFXCM.com, you may also submit your documents as scanned images (JPG, GIF, BMP, DOC, PDF-no password protection please) to our new accounts department at firstname.lastname@example.org, or via fax to 0800 014 8154 (UK residents) or +1 212 897 7669 (international).
- Fund your account. Most clients find a debit card, credit card, or bank wire to be the fastest and easiest funding methods. Visit www.MyFXCM.com to submit your deposit. Once the application is complete and funds are processed, you can begin trading right away!
