    FXCM Extends Forex Market Trading Hours Starting Friday December 9th

    In response to popular demand, FXCM has decided to extend our forex market hours. In the past FXCM has opened between 5PM and 5:15PM ET on Sundays, and has closed at 4PM ET on Fridays. Starting 9 December, FXCM will close at approximately 5PM ET on Fridays, giving you more opportunities to place trades and/or manage your risk. Please note that spreads may be wider between 4PM ET and 5PM ET because there are fewer liquidity providers offering prices during that time.

    If you're using the Trading Station Mobile platform on your iPhone, Blackberry, Android, or Windows Mobile device, make sure you have the most recent version. An update went through a few weeks ago adding candlestick charts, additional timeframes, and indicators.

    FXCM Holiday Hours

    A special reminder that FXCM will have special holiday hours this weekend and next for both trading and customer support. Here's a list of the holiday hours (all times are Eastern New York time; +5 for GMT):


    I will be away from the forums through January 3rd so this will likely be my last post until then. If you need immediate assistance, please do not hesitate to contact FXCM customer support by phone, chat, or email, and I will reply to any unanswered questions once I get back. Thanks to everyone for visiting the thread in 2011, and I look forward to being back in 2012.

    Happy Holidays!

    Jason

    Default FXCM App Store

    Hi everyone,

    A few weeks ago, I mentioned the FXCM App Store was coming soon. Well it is finally here!

    The app store launched this week, and it is starting out with around 40 apps for MT4 including scripts, EA’s, and stand-alone apps. This is just the beginning, and we plan to release more apps in the coming months for MT4, Trading Station, and possibly other platforms.

    Below are 3 apps you can test for free, and there are more on the website. If you have suggestions for additional apps, please do let me know, and I will ask the programming services team if they can be added to the website.


    DailyFX PLUS Trading Signals—Breakout2 (Expert Advisor)

    Those of you that use DailyFX PLUS will likely have heard of Breakout2. You can now automate the strategy to run on MT4 rather than having to visit the website to check for updates and then manually place trades on your platform.

    Breakout 2 is one of the six strategies in the “classic” DailyFX signals. It’s designed to perform best in market conditions where price is likely to move through an identified support or resistance level. When this happens, trading volume and price volatility often increase. Breakout2 attempts to capitalize on these increases by recommending to buy or sell in the direction of the breakout. We will likely release more of the DailyFX PLUS strategies for MT4 automation, so stay tuned.

    Click here to download Breakout 2 for the FXCM MetaTrader 4 platform



    Trend Identifier (Indicator)

    This indicator is pretty self-explanatory, and it incorporates the Aroon indicator for trend identification. The indicator displays two lines: “Aroon up,” which measures the strength of the uptrend, and “Aroon down,” which measures the strength of the downtrend. Both lines fluctuate between values of zero and 100, with values near zero representing a weak trend and values near 100 representing a strong trend.



    Click here to download Trend Identifier for FXCM MT4



    Quick Buy (Script)

    This app lets you open trades on MT4 in one click similar to how one-click trading works on the Trading Station desktop platform. You can even pre-set your stop-loss and take-profit levels.

    Click here to download Quick Buy for FXCM MT4



    All of these apps can be used on FXCM’s MetaTrader 4 platform, so if you’re using our MT4, enjoy! If not, you can register for an FXCM MT4 demo. And again, let me know, if you have suggestions for new EA’s, scripts, etc. Stay tuned for an app that will let you automatically share your trades with your friends on facebook and twitter.

    Default Attention MT4 demo users

    Hi everyone,

    Those of you who have an MT4 demo with FXCM will be getting an email about this, but I wanted to give everyone on the forum a heads up.

    Due to a server upgrade this weekend, all current MT4 demos on the FXCM MT4 platform will expire this coming Sunday, April 15th. Past trading history of those demos will not be saved. Please take appropriate measures to save any necessary data. You can create a new demo after April 15th.

    Why is this necessary? FXCM recently rebuilt the backend of our MT4 platform from the ground up. Now our No Dealing Desk forex execution is seamlessly integrated and auto syncs have been eliminated. We have also integrated functionality for MT4 accounts to work with the MT4 mobile and Trading Station mobile platforms. In order or put through the ability for demos to login to Trading Station and the mobile apps, the old demos have to go unfortunately.

    I know that this is an inconvenience for everyone using a current MT4 demo with us, but I hope you will like all the new changes that will come with the new demos.

    Jason
