    The whole idea of foreign exchange trading is based on the constant fluctuations in currency, testing different systems and money management strategies. However, making wise business decision will help you to invest rightly and profitably. So, for the beginners need to understand those different systems and strategies. Then they have to choose the right broker what is match with their mentality and trading style. I am with ECNCAPITAL because I found it is right broker for me.

    I made $4000 on my demo account in two days. I felt amazing especially since i went in without knowing what a pip is……just took a shot in the dark ahaha. I also made $9000 on a stock market practice app in overnight without knowing what i was doing too. too bad it was all just fake practice trades and not real ones

    i love ctrader. There is only 1 thing id like to see. opening new chart is such a drag. id like just to drag and drop the pair on to already open chart winodw. i understand ctrader was made to resemble mt4. Thats one option on mt4 that i cant let go.

    I am completely new to this and was wondering how you know when the currency will rise. Is this from market observation or is it by analysing its past value? or both?

    *Who could have imagined 10 years back that there would be a app that’ll be doing all the trading for you and will be doing it better than you could ever do but today (**https://plus.google.com/107219347246250089542/posts/Sn2tjG2fPAa** ) is making sure that you don’t have to spend a lot of time on trading and at the same time you are getting good amount of money out of it.*

    Please stop saying that if you’re right you will "win money". Makes it sound like you are gambling or playing a game or something which trading is not. A better and more correct thing to say is you wil "make money" like from a job or something – trading should be looked at as something serious like a job – not gambling. You sound like you have been in the markets for a long time and have some sort of managerial position so please correct your terminology and set a better example for everyone. Thanks.
