FXCM Live Trading

Hi guys,

I wanted to test out an algorithm using the "demo" model of the FXCM live trading. I registered an account with them, however when I try to log in via Quantconnect it asks for an account ID and a username. I only have an account ID (I think, which is a letter followed by a sequence of numbers).

Does anyone have an idea what the username is? I've tried putting in my email.

Many thanks,
Phil

Hey Phil! For live accounts the account id and user id are the same; for demo accounts you can find your account id in the trading station application. It should be in the summary tab.

If its a letter-numbers combo thats a demo account and you'll need to go into the trading station to get the account id.

I was able to find my FXCM Demo account id by signing in to the "Trading Station Web" on fxcm.com and looking for a tab named "Account" on the upper right hand side of the page.  There was an "Account" column on this tab where my account id was listed.
