DislikedI am currently using FXCM but I have a connectivity problem. They blame the ISP, the ISP blames them, usual stuff in the tech support world. I have been using the software for months so this sudden interruption is a mystery to me and am at a loss how to troubleshoot it any further. Since I am on a Micro account there is no phone support available so the email communication is slowwwww.
I like the platform just fine but there seems to be problems with its memory management on WinXP. I have to restart the platform 4-5 times a day or else it will...Ignored
DislikedI am having the same problem as of today, can't login to my account, up until now everyting had been working fine....Ignored
DislikedThey brought in a new version of software recently and maybe it has bugs. It already has a memory bug as far as I'm concerned. I really like the platform for trading, but I prefer MT4 for charting. I suggest you frequently restart the program, and even Windows too. I know older versions of Windows seemed to always have this "memory leak" that could be fixed by restarting. You could also try FXCM's Java version.Ignored
DislikedMemory issues seem to be OK now but let's see what happens when things get cooking in the NY session tomorrow morning.
Dislikednot sure where everyone is having issues with their platform. I run it on both an XP system and a Vista system. I run it starting Sunday night all the way until Friday without crashes or issues. on the xp system I run it alongside 3 metatrader instances along with other programs. On the vista it run alongside 2 other trading platforms. Never has crashed or even stalled.Ignored
DislikedI have no other problem with other programs and others on the FXCM forums have had similar problems with the platform. My problem is probably inadequate memory. I just need to spend a little money and get some more memory!Ignored
DislikedI am on a micro account and it runs 1.5 to 2 pips during those times, usually the lower end. A standard account is higher at about 2 pips spread, though I don't have that kind of account (it is just what their website says).Ignored
