How do I Spread Bet with FXCM?
Spread Betting at FXCM is done in standardised bet sizes called lots. A lot is the smallest available bet size that you can place on your account. With FXCM the default forex lot is 1,000 units of currency, meaning the smallest bet you can place is 1,000 units. You can place larger bets, but the bet size must be in increments of 1,000.
FXCM offers Spread Bet practice accounts on both the Trading Station and MetaTrader 4 platforms:
