FXCM Metatrader is a joke. Off quotes- old ticks- Unhonored TakeProfits and Stoploss. Servers failed
FXCM UK MICRO 2009 - Server issues a few times, but their spreads and platform were far better than most brokers. However, all good things have to come to an end. They changed their Raw ECN data feed in the beginning of 2010 to STD account Spreads. which are 2.4 pips on EURUSD. I stopped using their proprietary trading platform after the spread increase and tried out their MetaTrader version and I was honestly shocked at all the issues that I had. I wouldn't even give them 1 star out of 10.
And after hearing about the Active trader Price delay/slippage, and how FXCM responded to the ordeal put a sour taste in my mouth. Also Currensee.com started to promote FXCM all over their website, and now FXCM offers a referral system.. haha.. truly going down in the history books as a big rip off artist.
