    The Royal wedding is a hot topic, but you don’t have to be from a particular family or be in a certain country to be a king. FXCM Inc. (NYSE: FXCM) crowns a new king every month. King of the Micro is a forex trading contest for all FXCM Micro clients with a minimum of $500 in their account at the beginning of each month. To remain eligible, traders must execute a minimum of ten trades during the month. FXCM Inc. awards cash prizes every month to three Micro clients with the highest returns on their trades.

    We interviewed the top three participants from the March contest to determine what set the "King of the Micro" apart from the second and third place winners. The three winners also shared their respective experience level, their preferred trading pairs, average trade holds, and the amount they invest in trading on a daily basis. Please join us in congratulating them.

Before deciding to trade foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite.
