How a company handles complaints is very important information for potential clients.

The FPA doesn't remove complaints.  The FPA is happy to post updates when a complaint is resolved.  We are glad you eventually got your withdrawal.

COnfirmation of order takes minutes (becuase they are manipulating)!

Looks very shady to me, I have been using the demo account, but when a firm is willing to add $1000 to your account for opening a live account with only $5000 in, and give you an ipad3, it smacks of F#%$ing SCAM with a Capital S! What do you think?

Guys, Believe me, their execution on high volatility instruments IS awful. Basically, you can never trade at all !!! It takes about 20 seconds for the order to materialize, and by that time, of course price had changed, so what happen? You have to remove the order. I agree that their demo version doesn't at all represent the real version in this sense. Trust me !

I am glad I read this. I almost opened up an account to trade gold and crude. I cannot believe that they are still in business.

Issue escalated to Traders Court RESOLVED FPA Scam Confirmation against GCITrading.com | RESOLVED
FPA Scam Investigations Committee Update 2013-01-24: GCI and this client have reached a mutually satisfactory agreement. The FPA considers this issue to be fully resolved.

I WAS AN IB for GCI for 5 years.....All of a sudden they cut me off without notice owing me 12, 000.......Totally unethical

Scam Investigations Committee Note: The FPA was trying to help Lynda negotiate with GCI Trading over this complaint. GCI stopped responding to her and refuses to answer questions from the FPA.

2007-06-30 4 Stars Been dealing with gci for 3 yrs......highly recommend for swingtrading...any disputes r settled in honorable and honest manner...Admin is very good...dealing desk is good....except during volatile mkts....which is the same with any other broker....I am satisfied.....

I've opened an account with GCI only to find out that the DEMO is identical to the LIVE account only in the "skin". The trading is WAY different from one another. While in the demo the execution of orders takes 1-3 secs, in the LIVE it takes 10-15 secs (FOREVER in a changing market as FOREX is). Very disappointed to find out this IMPRESSIVE slow order execution, costing me 360 bucks. My only order, followed by closing my account. Besides I have an issue with the closing of my only open position...I closed it at -6 and in my statement appears a -9. I've contacted the dealing desk just yesterday, so I hope to hear from them soon.
