We are pleased to announce the opening of FXCM EU Limited ("FXCM EU")

FXCM EU is our newest FXCM Group entity based in Cyprus,
authorized and regulated by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange
Commissions ("CySEC") under license number 392/20.

FXCM EU will begin accepting new customers soon!

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.

Why open with FXCM EU?

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.

Can I stay with FXCM LTD?

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.

If I move my account to FXCM EU, what will change?

  • What protections will I have under FXCM EU?
    FXCM EU is regulated by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commissions ("CySEC"). The Investor Compensation Fund (ICF) covers up to 20,000 EUR in case of insolvency of FXCM.
  • Will my open positions or pending orders be impacted?
    Your open positions will be closed at the original open rate of the position and a new identical position will be opened in your FXCM EU account. All your pending orders will be moved over seamlessly conserving all your stops and limits. The total ending balance that FXCM LTD holds for you will also be transferred to FXCM EU.
  • Will my login details change?
    All Trading Station (TS) account holders will keep their existing login details.
    Metatrader 4 (MT4) account holders will receive new login details. You will receive a welcome email with your login details once your account is created.
