How to Start

It is easy to start Forex trading; the complication appears when you want to trade with a profit. A lot of people mistakenly consider Forex to be a kind of gambling, where everything depends on the luck. But this is not true. Forex is a currency market which is working on the laws of supply and demand. Understanding of these laws, learning the key vocabulary and the trading process is minimum required to do Forex trading.


Ready – learning of the theoretical basis

Even if you hated your school, you would have to get some theoretical knowledge in Forex trading. Blind execution of deals is the worst possible solution you can make.

Many of them are disclosed in more details in the Forex articles section. If you have some specific questions, you can always contact our support team via live chat or email

Trading on FOREX is like playing sports. Constant training is required.

Steady – trading on a demo account

To get experience in trading and not to take risks using your funds, you have a chance to open a practice account. Demo and real accounts have the same trading terms and quotations flow. The difference between practice accounts and live trading accounts is in the fact that while working on a practice account you trade virtual money. Respectively, there is no risk of losing money due to the unfavourable market movement. To learn more about how to use and how to open this type of account, please visit the page.

Trading on FOREX is like playing sports. Constant training is required in order not to get out of shape and be able to continue at the same rate. You are better to trade every day, analyse news, which can influence the market's movements, develop your own strategies, improve the ones that you already have. It's vital not to stand in the same place and just wait for a trend, but to analyse and study all the opportunities and situations.

To make money with Forex, you should combine knowledge, practical skills of trading and analysis and full emotional control.

Go – moving to a real trading account

Only when you feel that you have trained enough – you are using a trading platform automatically, trading with profit and familiar to the market situation – switch to a live trading account.

Be ready that losses are possible as well as a profit. Profitable trading on the practice account does not guarantee success on the real one. It caused by the fact that trading with own money differs significantly from "playing" on virtual funds. The psychological aspect is different.

Usually, you decide by yourself how much money do you need to start Forex trading. We advise beginning with a small deposit at the very beginning to cope with your emotions. Nobody can execute solely profitable trades. Learn to take losses calmly and analyse mistakes.

To make money on Forex, you should combine knowledge, practical skills of trading and analysis, and full emotional control.

Therefore, not stay on the demo account for too long, move to the next stage of trading and earning on the Forex market.
