VPS Risk Disclosure: VPS services are provided by third parties. These third parties are not owned, controlled or operated by FXCM. As such, FXCM does not make any warranties regarding the services provided by the third parties. Clients are not required to sign up with the third parties FXCM offers discounts for. Instead clients are encouraged to find a VPS provider that best meets their needs. Additionally, there are significant risks and limitations involved with using VPS services.

MT4 Order Sizes: FXCM MetaTrader 4 allows for order sizes up to 50 million per trade. Traders have the ability to trade incremental sizes (multiple orders of 50 million for the same pair).

The MT4 platform does not allow FXCM to include commissions in pre-trade margin calculations on client's pending orders. This means that if you place a trade with a small amount of available usable margin under the MT4 account, there is a risk that the execution of the orders could trigger immediate margin call right after the execution as the commission charges can result in insufficient margin to maintain your open positions. You should therefore ensure that you have reserved sufficient buffer usable margin before opening new trades.

MT4 FXCM Independency: FXCM South Africa (PTY) LTD ("FXCM ZA") is an independent legal entity and is not affiliated with MetaQuotes Software Corp. ("MT4"). MT4 is not owned, controlled, or operated by FXCM ZA. Therefore, FXCM ZA does not make any warranties regarding any MT4 product or service and has not reviewed or verified any performance results that may be presented and/or described on this website in relation to MT4.

MT4 Quote Throttling: Please note that MT4 has an inherent limitation on maximum numbers of quotes processing within a short period of time (i.e. per second). The potential exists for variations in pricing displayed between servers. These differences do not have an impact on prices available for execution but can impact the prices used to trigger resting orders. During volatile market situation, there is a risk of potential latency of price quotes which may result in delays in order execution.
