Trading Station Desktop Update

Jason Rogers started this thread Hi Everyone,

An update to Trading Station Desktop was released last weekend adding some very useful functions that we hope will improve your trading experience. Here’s a highlight of a few of the new features:

New Contingent Orders

A Contingent order is an order that contains two (or more) entry orders linked together by a certain condition of their execution. Previously, we only had OCO orders available in Trading Station Desktop. The recent update makes available the following additional contingent orders:

- OTO (One-Triggers-the-Other)
- OTOCO (One-Triggers-One-Cancels-the-Other)
- If-Then
- If-Then OCO

You can create contingent orders by right clicking on a symbol and selecting “Create Contingent Order” from the menu. You can also press Alt+E on your keyboard. The online user guide has more information on how each order type works.


Improved Reports

A new Statement Summary Report is now available. This new report is designed to give you a summary of all products traded over a specified period along with volume, gross P/L, commission, rollover, net P/L, and open/close date.

The previous Combined Account Statement Report is still available which will give details on every trade for the specified period of time.

You will also notice when selecting the report type you also have the option for ‘Account Analytics’. This option will take you to the Trading Analytics app where you can run detailed analysis of your trading history such as profitability by symbol, profitability by time of day, average gain per trade, average loss per trade, and much more.


Marketscope Price Panels

The Bid/Ask price panel is now available directly on the chart for trading. Previously, you could trade from the chart by clicking on the price on the right hand axis. The price panel now gives you an additional method to place trades, plus a drop down menu for you to select the amount to trade if you have the platform set to one-click trading as I have done in the screenshot.

Let me know if you have any questions, and as always we appreciate any feedback you have about the update.

The story with FXCM is that Global Brokerage Inc (NASDAQ:GLBR), formerly known as FXCM Inc, will be filing for “Chapter 11” protection under the United States Bankruptcy Code, as part of a planned reorganization of the company. The filing I believe is prompted by an expected de-listing which would trigger an event default of its existing loans. The restructuring will involve exchanging its existing convertible notes to five-year non-convertible notes, carrying a higher rate of interest - 7% instead of 2.25%.

It should be noted that Global Brokerage’s main asset is its 50.1% holding in FXCM Group LLC, which operates the FXCM Retail FX brand. In other words, the "news" is about the restructuring plans of a major shareholder of the FXCM retail brand.

Hello NVP,

FXCM releases our monthly volume numbers, and our latest release for the month of October shows our clients transacted $192 billion in trading volume. And we had over 121,000 active accounts during the month of October. FXCM Group’s financial information for the third quarter was also released recently which you can find here.

Brumby,

Although Global Brokerage holds a 50% voting interest in FXCM Group and a minority economic interest, Global Brokerage is not the same thing as FXCM. To the contrary, FXCM management and its Board of Directors have engaged in efforts to insulate FXCM from Global Brokerage’s issues. FXCM’s other shareholder is Leucadia National Corporation, with a 50% voting interest and the majority economic interest, is a NYSE-listed holding company with a $9 billion market cap.

Hello Michel,

We don’t offer deposit bonuses, and I would be cautious about any broker offering a deposit bonus. Often times they will require insanely high minimum trading volume requirements in order to withdraw the bonus, sometimes in a short period of time, and that’s if they even allow the withdrawal of the bonus

Jason Rogers started this thread FXCM Launches REST API and Python Wrapper

Our new REST API was launched today and is now available to connect to FXCM's trading server. The REST API lets you integrate with our trading system using popular programming languages such as Python and JavaScript, and you can use it to retrieve historical chart data and place trades, along with real-time market data and position update information via WebSocket. The REST API also uses OAuth 2.0 specification via token for a more secure integration.

A Python Wrapper was also released. Easily integrated with Jupyter Notebook, fxcmpy is a Python package that exposes all capabilities of the REST API via different Python classes. The classes allow for a convenient, Pythonic way of interacting with FXCM’s REST API on a high level without needing to take care of the lower-level technical aspects.

Documentation including sample code and real case studies can be found on our Github page. Let me know if you have any questions.
