I've read that with a Forex account you're dealing with a lot of leverage and that you can be liable for losses beyond the money that you have in the account. I remember someone saying though, with some Forex companies you'd just lose what's in your account, nothing beyond that. I've just opened an account with FXCM for a few thousand dollars to experiment with some risky trading methods. Does anyone know if FXCM would hold me liable for losses beyond what's in my account? I don't mind if I lost everything in the account but I wouldn't want to be liable for more than that.
