Anyone Trade the Quote Lag at FXCM?

    Watched their quotes today - very slow.

    A good support/resistence trader could make a nice buck gaming the delay...
  2. Compared to what, another platform/chart, and can you get filled at those quotes?

    Yep. Compared to another broker. MB for instance.

    Dont know much about FXCM execution. At points, price can lag over 3 seconds.
  4. You'll never be filled though. You'll get a "price has moved" message.
  5. It sounds more like price manipulation or latency than a platform arb opportunity, it might help with holding a trade for a bit longer if their price is lagging though, depending on the trade of course. :)

    FXCM aren't renowned for giving money away!
