Get Paid to Develop FXCM Apps

FXCM, the major US Forex broker, has just launched a very helpful and lucrative program for developers who wish to profit from their trading applications. The broker now offers all those who want to promote and sell their software creations to do so via its marketplace known as FXCM Apps. When we said that the program was lucrative we were not kidding, as it enables programmers to stick to what they are best at: building pieces of software, while the team of FXCM Apps will take care of all the rest, including the hosting, marketing, promotion, and even the final compiling of the app. 
 
But you must already be curious about the nature of apps you can develop so that they can reach the app store. The FXCM guys explain that an app may be a standalone program, which means that it is not targeted at a particular platform, while you can also engage in developing apps for Metatrader 4, Trading Station and NinjaTrader. An app can be a Forex robot, indicator, an add-on, etc. You can see the rough classification of apps in the photo below.

A great advantage of FXCM's program should have become apparent at this point: the broker is enabling you to build and market apps for a variety of trading environments. The company is not restricting your skills and ambitions to a particular platform. 
 
In case you're interested, you should simply sign up at this designated page. It is up to you to build the software but the broker is not leaving you alone in the process – you may always consult a raft of coding guides. 
Once your app is checked and approved – the process takes several business days, you'll see it up for sale on FXCM Apps. This means that any of the broker's 185,000 clients (at least that's the number at the end of August 2013) may get access to your app. 
 
Now comes the best part: each month you get paid 80% the proceeds of sales – a rather lump share. Have in mind that the broker will not charge you for marketing and hosting. It will even pay any transaction fees when it pays you your monthly share of revenues.
 
OK, one final accord cannot be skipped because many of you must worry about the legal part of the sale and promotion. In the end of the day, we are not all experts in corporate law and we don't know how to write license agreements for those who buy the apps. Well, FXCM offers a solution for this problem too with your apps to get End User License Agreements, without you having to get that Harvard Law degree. 
 
With this offer FXCM smiles to developers, reiterating its status as a leading retail Forex broker.
