FXCM Apps is a new online marketplace where FXCM accountholders can download special “apps” that customize their trading experience. There are apps for news traders, trend traders, and range traders; apps that add new trading features; and apps that just make trading better.
Anyone can browse the store but the apps only operate in an FXCM account, including 30-day demo accounts available at FXCM websites.
Apps fall into three broad categories: MetaTrader 4 apps, Trading Station Desktop apps, and standalone apps.
Trading Station Desktop is our favorite platform. It has features for serious technical traders and it provides excellent control over the trading experience.
The MetaTrader 4 platform (“MT4” for short) is popular globally and many forex traders use it. It has automatic trading features and advanced charting functionality that contributes to this.
This category of apps encompasses those that do not require a trading platform to operate; they run independently. An FXCM account is still required for apps in this category to operate.
