Info says that this symbol is...
Hello, how many trades per week is not considered "Too frequent"? Does this impact on the rank of the signals? Is there a way to know what is the position in the rank for a signal provider? Thank you
Good day! It is possible that there is a similar topic but couldn't find it in a hurry. So my quiestion: at "trading signals", if the comment column shows "cancelled", does that affect the overall performance of the given signal? For example, if someone cancels his or her trade with -100 dollar...

Hey guys, I'm considering on adding the custom time zone app with FXCM - see link here: https://www.fxcmapps.com/apps/custom-time-zones/   This should make the time of each candlesticks reflect your actual time zone.
