However, existing Forex Capital Markets Limited ("FXCM LTD") clients residing in the European Economic Area ("EEA") have an exclusive opportunity to request an account(s) now to better prepare for the possible withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union on December 31, 2020. We believe that an account with FXCM EU 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.
European Non-UK residents may remain with FXCM LTD for a limited period of time. However, your client service will change as FXCM LTD representatives will no longer be able to introduce new products and features to you, such as: new instruments, trading tools, and platform upgrades. The lack of information could potentially put your trading strategies at a disadvantage compared to other market participants and could increase your risk exposure.
