Forex trading – accounts
Forex trading nowadays is a home business opportunity. Anyone with an internet connection can make money online trading the forex market. Well, that’s not entirely true. You need an internet connection, a few bucks (a few hundred to start) and some marketer skills.
So, if you don’t want to learn the basics of the forex market and how to manage risks, you shouldn’t even consider trading currencies yourself. Of course you can practice. Almost all Forex brokers online will allow you to open a demo or practice account. You’ll get something like $10,000 or more and see how you do.
Demo accounts is the first account you should register if you are new to forex trading. It’s risk free. You trade currency in real time, but the money is not real. You might practice for three or six months, maybe a year, before trading a “live” account. Of course, you can buy a book to teach you some techniques. You should also look for online forex tutorials. You will find some really good information, just use Google.
If you have enough money, you can also open forex managed account. This type of account is managed by a professional trader. Many brokers already offer this feature. You don’t need any special skills as you are not trading alone. The broker will take a percentage of your net profit. I have personally noted that 20% is usually taken by the broker.
You may think that this rate is high, but you are not taking any risk. You don’t spend hours in front of the charts waiting for the biggest opportunity of the day.
Automated forex trading accounts. At one point I became interested. I have never tried this type of account. In fact, this option can be offered in two ways. You download software that analyzes the market, then trades when it finds good opportunities. Again, there’s nothing to do except set it up with your own parameters. If you decide to try this, set up the software to trade with your practice account first.
The second way with automated forex trading accounts does not involve downloading any software. All you have to do is transfer your funds to the broker. The broker then uses proprietary auto-trading software. We can assume that their software will trade using trading signals, signals sent by other software…
Forex signals are very valuable. If you decide to trade forex, signals can really help you. A trading signal subscription can be anywhere from $100 to $600 depending on the length of the subscription and the broker or signal provider. Signals tell you the exact entry and exit points. You know which pair to trade, when to trade and the expected profit.
Signals are a great resource for any trader. Maybe you can see if you are earning well from them.
Forex trading is a real money making opportunity. But this is not a game. Risk management and emotional control are the core skills of a trader. If you decide to try forex trading, you should read and practice a lot. Don’t invest what you can’t afford to lose. If you or your family need money, don’t risk it.
