How to start trading forex online
The fx or currency trading market is the largest financial market in the world with an estimated $4 trillion traded daily, dwarfing the daily volume of any global stock market. In the past, forex markets were available only to large corporations, governments, central banks and hedge funds but the spread of the internet in the mid 1990s made it possible to trade currencies electronically, anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day, with no physical exchange needed. The easily accessible internet spawned the birth of online trading which now offers even the smallest trader access to the financial market place.
The first step in trading forex is to learn as much as you can and familiarise yourself with basic trading concepts. This is easy because there is a wealth of free information about the forex market on the internet that can be accessed with a simple web search. An easier and more convenient way to learn about the forex market is to go to the website of a reputable forex broker. Many well-regarded brokers like easy-forex provide an array of free online trading tools. easy-forex offers educational videos, as well as one-on-one training sessions, webinars and seminars and an eBook guide to trading. Tools to help you trade can be found on the www.easy-forex.com website – including technical analysis, market commentary, a financial calendar, Reuters news and more.
The next step is to choose a professional broker and an easy-to-use trading platform. The easy-forex web trading platform allows you to trade from anywhere in the world with just a click of the mouse. This is a major benefit because the fx market trades 24 hours a day; from 7am Monday Sydney time until 5pm Friday New York time. The easy-forex trading platforms are highly regarded and you can choose to trade online via our web platform, download our desktop platform, TradeDesk™, onto your computer or access the platforms on your smartphone or tablet. You also get support from an account service manager via phone, email and Live Chat, who can inform you about the markets.
Once you’ve chosen a forex broker, the next step is to start the registration process, which at easy-forex is simple. Just register online for our trading platform and complete the process by depositing your first funds into your personal trading account. You can make a deposit with your credit card, or via a bank transfer or e-wallet. For the true beginner, easy-forex offers a free demo account which requires no deposit of funds.
