Oanda ranks better in most key areas than FXCM apart from education (but FXCM's advantage is rather slight here). Oanda's proprietary trading platform, fairer fees, and top-notch research tools are very stong arguments in its favor.  

When it comes to account opening and product selection, the two brokers have the same quality of service.
