So can I use my OANDA acc. for TOS . and if so, which contracts?
Yes, you can use your Oanda account to drive your Trades-Own-Strategy certification. We support most over the counter forex pairs.
I also have a FXCM acc ( Uk)
which I actually prefer to oanda. I see on one of the faqs or somewhere that I could use that too, but somewhere else saying FXCM has now been discontinued.
What is the current situation on using fxcm for TOS?
We support FXCM for non-USA people. (USA people are not allowed to use it because it withdrew its registration in the US.)
If you are not a US person, you can use FCXM to drive Trades-Own-Strategy Certification for your strategy.
You will need to specify to Oanda that you want to use Oanda Trader (CQG) to place orders manually to C2. They lock the platform in read-only mode by default.
