It's unfortunate that their maximum trade leverage is dropping to 50:1 very soon.
email from ATC Brokers:
On August 30th, 2010 the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) announced the issuance of final rules regarding the regulation of off-exchange retail foreign exchange (Forex) transactions and intermediaries. The rules go into effect on October 18, 2010 and implement provisions of both the CFTC Reauthorization Act of 2008 (Farm Bill) and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (Dodd-Frank Act).
Due to this ruling by CFTC, US clients who currently have a trading account with FXCM UK division will be transferred to FXCM US division. The trading leverage will be set to 50:1, however, all other aspects of trading will maintain the same structure.
