Every so many years, the Forex markets get rocked by an event that tests the liquidity of less financially stable brokers. The most recent episode was the Swiss shock that happened when they threw out their currency cap.
Alpari and Excel Markets were a couple of the casualties in this incident. But even though FXCM suffered losses (like most brokers) they have always managed to weather the storms.
That is why they are one of the brokers that we work with.
In this article, we will show you how to sign up for a FXCM UK demo account and why you would want to. It is actually very easy to sign up.
Before you read any further, please keep in mind that we only deal with clients outside the United States. This is because the regulatory requirements that are associated with working with US citizens are prohibitively expensive and would not allow us to offer such low monthly fees. But the firms that we work with are highly regulated in their home countries and your money always stays in your own account.
How to Sign Up For a FXCM UK Demo Account
Above is a screenshot of the the signup form for a demo account. As you can see, it is extremely simple and you can get started right away.
Remember that these demo accounts do expire after 30 days. However, you can still continue to test out our trading signals after 30 days. Simply sign up for a new demo account and continue your evaluation.
This is kind of a hassle, but most Forex brokers do this. It is something that you would have to do at almost any other broker.
The Benefits of Using FXCM
In addition to being able to weather financial downturns, FXCM UK is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the UK. This will give you confidence that a government agency is watching your broker to be sure that they are doing the right thing.
Of course, there are no absolute guarantee that any business will be around forever. But this does give you an added level of safety.
As we mentioned in the introduction, in order to get our signals in a live account (if you choose to do so), you open an account in your own name and the money always remains in your possession. You are free to add or withdraw money from your account at any time.
We never take possession of your money, it is always at FXCM.
By using a demo account with our Forex signals, you can give them a try and find out if they are for you or not. We want to be sure that you are comfortable with what you are getting into and this provides you a way to not risk any money.
