Existing Forex Capital Markets Limited ("FXCM LTD") clients residing in the European Economic Area ("EEA") have an exclusive opportunity to request an account(s) with FXCM EU which is the best way to experience as little disruption to your trading in the months ahead.
FXCM EU clients benefit from a range of protections including complaint management, compensation systems, and client money protection. ESMA protections including negative balance protection, margin close out, leverage limits on opening positions and marketing restrictions will continue to apply.
Clients who reside in the European Economic Area will not be able to continue trading with FXCM LTD past the weekend of the 27th/28th of February. Clients who have already opted-in to FXCM EU and have submitted all the necessary documents will be transferred to FXCM EU that same weekend, and will continue to trade normally as soon as market opens.
Any clients who have not opted in to transfer to FXCM EU and have not provided all the necessary documents by February 26th at 1pm GMT will have their accounts locked from trading (and if their account is based on MT4, all their open positions will be liquidated at market).
In order to avoid any disruptions to your account, please contact our Support staff via Chat Offline or phone who will be able to clarify the current status of your account.
