FXCM went down today, sometime in the morning hours. (CST) Their "status" page, www.fxstatus.com is hit or miss, probably to the number of people trying to get information. I've only been trading a live account with them since December. I got them on the phone and they said this "never happens" as far as it going down and staying down so long. What I want to know is, is that true? For you that have traded on FXCM for a more substantial amount of time, have you ever been locked out for so long of a time? I will add, that the Customer Service representative did say they would honor all trades that should have gone through but didn't. i.e. stop loss, target limit, etc. That's great but if this is a common occurrence, I'll be looking for a new broker.
