Card payments that are not accepted
If your card transaction was declined, the transaction should be lifted from your account normally within a few business days.
Deposits received from an account in a different name and/or held by someone other than the trading account holder constitutes a third party deposit.
This also applies to corporate funds received for an individual account and similar scenarios.
Third Party deposits violate FXCM’s Anti-Money Laundering policies and as such FXCM cannot accept any payments via a third party.
Should third party funds be received, FXCM may ask for supporting documentation such as a Wire Confirmation and/or Bank statement in order to prove ownership.
FXCM can neither guarantee the receipt nor the return of such payments.
How to withdraw funds from FXCM with Credit or Debit Cards
To withdraw funds from your FXCM’s trading account, please send a request from the client portal.
Accounts funded via debit or credit card may be subjected to receiving withdrawals via the same debit or credit card.
Please note that the card used for funding will typically be the same card used to return fund to when a withdrawal is requested.
Please contact FXCM immediately if the card used to fund is closed or if a different card number is re-issued.
When requesting a withdrawal to a card, please consider if that card is closed or has been re-issued, if so, please choose an alternative method of withdrawal.
Returning funds to closed account can cause a significant delay in receiving funds, and FXCM cannot guarantee a time frame in which funds will be received if the refund is initiated to a closed account.

In case, the fund you send and the base currency of your account are different, the bank will automatically convert the deposit to the denomination of the account funds are sent to at an exchange rate specified by them, which will not necessarily be favorable.
