Changes to FXCM CFD data

As many of our users already know, FXCM CFD data will be available only to FXCM account holders. We are getting lots of questions about the upcoming transition and we want to clarify that the situation is due to a request by FXCM. TradingView can’t affect the situation.  

It’s important to understand that we do not force anyone to create or use an FXCM account – we simply found a way for you to keep access to FXCM CFD data if you really need it. You’ll need either a demo or live account on FXCM, and the verification on TradingView takes only a couple of clicks. Creating a demo account on FXCM also takes a couple of minutes and doesn’t put any obligations on you.

At the same time we want to highlight that each FXCM CFD symbol has an alternative, including official symbols from CME, BME, ASX, NYMEX, etc. We will also offer refund options for unused periods going forward to users for whom this is a serious disruption.

Our chart and widget users can switch to alternative symbols:
