  2. Should be the Dumb and Dumber contest.
  3. So you're signed up?

    Seriously though. It's not the broker's fault everyone is losing money in this market. It's the morons behind the screen without an edge.

    Get real guys. Now i've said my peace. Flame away.

    I have no problem with FXCM. They've given me EVERY check i've requested and within the next 2-3 business days for most. 10x better than I can say for Scottrade back when I traded with them.
  4. Jason,

    How are those contingent OCO orders coming along for US-based customers?

    Or is FXCM still flipping the US a giant bird?


  5. Jason?


    Are you out there, Jason?

    Hi ddaytrader,

    The last time we spoke there was talk of it being included in the update for October. I'll check on the status of contingent OCO orders and get an answer for you. I'll reply on Tuesday at the latest.

  7. You'll have to be patient, linking orders on a trading platform is very complicated....
  8. LOL!

    This is such a step backward I'm waiting to get the email that says FXCM will no longer accept electronic orders and all orders must be phoned in for desk quotes and fills.

    dont know how this 10 weeks contest will turn out, but by going over the trading record of those went through FXCM's monthly contest, a lot of those guys dont even know how to trade, just bet a 500 bucks in it and woho~, he got the jackpot and 3000% return in a month. King of dumber hill.

    Some traders in those monthly contest do know how to trade tho, but they dont register insane percentage return as those gamblers do.

    Hi ddaytrader,

    Contingent OCO orders will not be in the release in October. It is still a planned release for the platform, but not in the next update.

    As I've done with all of our previous communications, I'll let you know the information we have availabe. I'm hesistant to give a month at all since the release is always subject to change.
