US Forex Broker FXCM launches an application store for forex traders. The idea is that traders can customize their trading experience through various applications related to indicators, charts, social sharing and more.

In addition, FXCM calls software developers to join its community and suggest their applications to the store.

FXCM recently launched  Android and iPhone apps  and this seems like another effort to expand in the technological field – a way that brokers are now trying to distinguish themselves.
