Forex Trading for Beginners

Forex is:

  • Simple - You don't need a financial background or any sort of special training to begin trading Forex. You can get started with just a couple of dollars.
  • Convenient - The Forex market is open 24 hours a day, 5 days a week, and accessible from your computer or mobile device. This means you can make trades whenever and wherever you want.
  • Lucrative - More than 4 trillion dollars are traded on the Forex market daily. Even a little can go a long way. Forex trading is, however, accompanied by significant risk.
  • Stable - In Forex, you are essentially trading one currency against another. Even when the price of one currency in a pair is falling, the other will be rising, meaning you have the chance to earn a profit in any market.

We've discovered Forex. You can too!

How does it work?

Demo Accounts for Beginners

With a demo trading account, you can give Forex a try without putting any of your money at risk.

Trading virtual money on one of our demo accounts can help you get a feel for the market and find your personal trading style. We offer several types of demo accounts so you can choose the one that's right for you.

Then you should try our Nano Account, which is denominated in cents, making the margin requirements 100 times lower than our normal accounts. This allows you to get used to live trading and work out your strategies in a real trading environment with minimal risk.
