How do I deposit funds?
Please log in to MYFXCM with your live account username and password, then click "Deposit Funds". (For clients who have filled out the online application but have not received an account username, please deposit funds here. A username will be provided after the initial deposit is processed.)
The available funding options and deposit time frames are:
Credit or Debit Card:
Approximately one business day, often less to process into your trading account.
Bank Wires (SWIFT, CHAPS, BACS, SEPA):
Approximately one to two business days (domestic) and three to five business days (international), often less, to arrive and process into your trading account. For our bank wire details, click here.
Approximately one to five business days to clear and process into your trading account.
Approximately five to ten business days after receipt to clear and process into your trading account.
Please note the time frames above are approximate. While not common, in some cases, delays in processing may occur in some instances as FXCM does not exhibit control over the entire funding process. All GBP cheques must be drawn on a GBP denominated UK bank account, and USD cheques must be drawn on a USD denominated bank US bank account. Cheques drawn in a currency other than GBP or USD will be returned to the remitter. Please note that FXCM is not responsible for any lost cheques.
Credit or debit card can be the fastest and easiest method to deposit funds online. If your deposit exceeds $10,000 or equivalent, the fastest and easiest method to deposit funds is by bank wire.
The minimum deposit for use of our online credit card or debit card system is $50. The minimum deposit for use of our ACH deposit system is $100. The maximum credit or debit card deposit is $10,000 or the equivalent per calendar month and the maximum ACH deposit is $50,000 per calendar month.
There are no administrative fees from FXCM to deposit funds. We recommend you contact your bank regarding any fees they or their associated intermediary banks may charge.
You can check the status of your deposit online by running an “Account Report” on MYFXCM. Once the deposit has been processed, the “Account Activity” section will show the deposit into your account.
Also, once a deposit has been credited to your account, an email confirmation will be sent to the email address on file.
