    Hello ToxicTradings, and thank you for your post! On behalf of myself and everyone here at FXCM, welcome to the forum community!

    What is the minimum age requirement to set up an FXCM Micro account?

    The minimum age requirement to open any FXCM account is 18 years old. If you meet the minimum age requirement, how much were you looking to start with? I ask because standard accounts also have the functionality of trading micro lots (increments of 1K) available and offer many advantages over micro accounts.

    What advantages do standard accounts have over micro accounts?

    Some of the advantages to holding a standard account include but are not limited to:

    • Different account denominations.

    • Different account types and platforms.

    • Plus much more!

    Please click here for more information on the advantages of having a standard account.

    The minimum starting balance for a standard account is $2000. Please let me know if a standard account would be something of interest to you, and I will be more than happy to put you in touch with a specialist that can go over all your options. If you are looking to open a micro account, you can open one by clicking on the link below:

    Please let me know when you have submitted your application and I would be more than happy to help you with the depositing process. Thank you in advance for your time ToxicTradings, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
