Select your country in the first dropdown box. If your country is not eligible it will give you a message. If you aren't eligible to have a live account, then there is no point in entering the contest, cuz you can't win the prize, which is a live account. 😝 If no message comes up and all the dropdown boxes are still there, then you should be good.
Of course if there are exceptions to this the FXCM guys can correct me.

FxProdz posted: My question isn't about the contest but I want to know why FXCM doesn't accept electronic payments such as skrill, neteller etc..... FXCM is a great broker especially with the new tight spreads, so if you provide different deposit and withdrawal methods it'd be great :) Good luck for your company and good luck to all participants in this contest :)
FXCM is always looking for ways to ways to make the deposit and withdrawal process easier and faster for our clients worldwide. We have to balance this goal with our obligation to our clients and our regulators to make sure that the transfer methods we offer meet regulatory standards for financial security. We already support many electronic bank transfer methods including ACH, EFT, SEPA and BACS.
If you would like specific instructions on how best to transfer money to any from your country of residence, please send me a private message with the email address we have on file for your account, the amount of money you wish to transfer and your country or residence. Our Operations department will be able to advise you further.
Thanks for the info. I have a live FXCM UK account. Will all existing accounts automatically be transitioned to the new spread + commission costs? Do you know when it will happen?
FXCM's new pricing has already been rolled out to our clients living in the US, UK and Australia. The transition is being done region by region 1) to ensure we follow regulatory requirements for due notice to traders which vary by regulator and 2) to ensure an orderly transition within our own system so as not to negatively impact our traders.
You mentioned that your account is with FXCM UK, but if you live outside of the UK itself, then your account may still be on our old pricing. While I do not have information on transition dates for our clients in other countries at this time, you will receive email notification should a date be scheduled for you.
