Should try some trading accounts and decide which like best. I advise you to try two or three brokers to see what the platform that suits you. You should choose a broker by the platform and the software, as opposed to choosing a broker and accept the software they give you. Feeling comfortable with the software is very important to be able to concentrate 100% on purchases and sales.
Once you know what your preferred platform open a real money account. Think of the margin you want (50: 1, 100: 1, 200: 1, 400: 1) I would not recommend a top margin 100: 1. With a margin of 100: 1 you can move around € 10,000 with only € 100. Higher margins give the advantage to negotiate more with less capital investment, but they are a recipe for disaster for inexperienced brokers because it can lose all the money on some bad trades. The most important thing in forex trading is risk management, see this article for more information.
Decide which couples in which it will concentrate to make money. Some of the most popular and most liquid pairs are the EUR / USD, GBP / USD (the cable), EUR / JPY, USD / CHF.
Be aware of the risk and prepare for losses when opening a forex account. Making money is not easy and in the beginning will make bad trades and losing money. The best traders also lose money but gain more than they lose. How to face the risk and losses is what decides whether you will make money or not. Having the right mindset to the challenges and the bad times is what differentiates the winners from the losers. This tip applies to all businesses and ways to make money.
The first step you should take before you start trading with forex is to find a reliable forex broker. Unlike the stock exchanges, not all forex brokers are regulated. It is very important to open a forex account with a forex broker or a bank that is registered as a regulated member of the country in which is (preferably in Europe or the United States). As there is no central market there is a global organization regulatory agency to monitor market activity of foreign exchange. Thus the setting is left to each country.
