As we know Forex Capital Markets represents Broker FXCM, which is recognised as the largest Forex Dealer Member. The forex dealer members are commonly described as financial services that specialises in forex retail. In other words, forex dealer members provide online trading services for the speculators of retail by providing its so-called speculative skills in what is known as the forex market.
On the whole, the actual company has over seventy eight thousand clients and also four hundred institutional customers that are located in more than eighty countries. FXCM averages around five hundred employees spread all over developed as well as fast-developing countries of world.
A forex scam is nothing but a confidence game played in the context of the foreign exchange market against fairly unsophisticated "retail speculators." The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) which leniently regulates the foreign exchange market in the United States, is noticing increase in the number of these scams recently. It is proved beyond doubt that FXCM has moved away from customer service and their motto remains SCAM business.
FXCM have secured license in successfully fighting CFTC complaints by arguing that the CFTC has no jurisdiction over the FX SPOT market. Owing to this liberty, they have been empowered to snatch money of the innocent people as they know 95 out of 100 accounts will be gone in 3 months.
Before indulging in forex market, one must understand tricks employed by FXCM. Broker is being considered as an agent who assists the investor for better returns on his investment. But, unfortunately, a broker is here for making money for himself, not yours.
FXCM have managed to cheat people for no fear of infringement. When someone starts earning profits at his own, FXCM tends to change his/her account without any intimation. In turn, when they are being requested for changing back the account, their replies comes in negative. Everything is wrong with them slippage, freezing, time wasting when you call the helpdesk and every other manipulative method to run you down.
When dealing with scammers, retail speculators suffer from at least 5 additional disadvantages:
They have no competitive prices to trade against, i.e. they must accept their broker\'s price or not trade.
The broker may show them actual prices from the forex market, but only with several minutes delay. Thus the broker has better information to trade on.
They are sometimes encouraged to over-leverage their trades, thus almost insuring that they will "receive a margin call" allowing the broker to close any open trade immediately, at the broker\'s price.
The brokers work as a team of several people as the forex market trades 24 hours a day. An individual trader will not be able to monitor his trades (and his broker\'s actions) for 24 hours a day. In some cases, the brokers may be aided by computer programs, which have near-instant reaction times and never make mistakes or take breaks.
They look to the brokers for training in the foreign exchange market and may actually buy their trading advice.
Have been using this brokerage for about a month now, very friendly staff. Haven\'t encountered any problems yet, great for scalping.
