WELCOME TO FXCM APPS

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.

FXCM APPS OFFERS THREE TRADING STATION DESKTOP APP TYPES:

  • Automated Strategies – apps that automate all or part of a trading strategy. Browse Automated Strategies
  • Indicators – apps that compute market data, displaying the result as a line or graph on a chart. Moving averages and Bollinger bands are two popular examples. Browse Indicators
  • Add-Ons – apps that add additional functionality to a chart. For example, the DailyFX News add-on displays the past and upcoming news events right on the chart, while the Renko add-on changes the chart type to Renko. Browse Add-Ons
