The DailyFX Bootcamp is a monthly series of intensive, training sessions held at our offices in New York, Dallas and San Francisco. In these sessions, a team of DailyFX analysts and instructors teach the strategies that they use in their trading every day to a small group of special guests. The sessions are limited to 15 or fewer guests, so we can ensure each individual guest gains the most value possible from the sessions and has the opportunity to have all their questions answered. The sessions are lively and interactive, with active conversations about practical application.

We hope that you will join us for a session. To register, please email with your name, phone number, and the city and date you which to attend. Again, space is limited to 15 per location per month. The cost is $500 for the whole day (or trio of events in New York) and includes all materials. The full cost is waived for those that open or upgrade an FXCM account to a certain threshold. For more details you can call 1-888-503-6739 or email
