  1. " FXCM will lower margin requirements on Sunday June 6, 2004 at the open of trading. As a result of this change:

    Margin will be the same for all currency pairs. Margin will no longer be based on notional value, but on a fixed dollar amount per lot.

    The new (default) margin requirement for Mini Accounts will be as low as $50 per lot for clients with an account balance under $50,000.

    The new (default) margin requirement for 100K Accounts may be as low as $1000 per lot.

    Depending on your account balance, you may be able to set your margin requirement as low as $50 per lot for FXCM Mini Accounts and $500 per lot for FXCM 100K Accounts. "
