I downloaded a brochure in PDF format from FSCS (http://www.fscs.org.uk/), and noted that it says: Regulated investments covered include: stocks and shares; unit trusts; futures and options; personal pension plans and long-term policies such as endowments. Forex trading is not mentioned therein. Is forex trading covered by FSCS? I have an account with Oanda Europe, and Oanda said in an email: Your deposits are held in segregated accounts under trust status, and are protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme up to Â¡Ãª50,000 per account. Worried about the recent case of MF Global, I'd like to get some specific information about whether or not forex is under the protection of FSCS. Anyone is familiar with FSCS?
