As far as picking a broker, just note and I find it funny that no one has mentioned the following... The broker takes more risk than the client because they offer the leverage. In the case of which a broker goes under, you can kiss you money good bye. Ask the people who lost money even though they werent in CHF pairs when the black swan account happened. No one has shown proof of getting their funds back and FXCM is a REGISTERED COMPANY IN THE US STOCK EXCHANGE NASDAQ. All in all, one needs to find a fool proof system before they even deposit in forex because if you dont, then you will be like tgor and with blown accounts by the dozen. Time will pass and you will have spent so much time and money only to get nothing out of it.
Interesting that you would consider tgor a bad trader with 'blown accounts by the dozen', Especially since tgor is a WELL ESTABLISHED member of the community.
You blew your own acount with a 99.9% DD.

If it looks too good to be true, it's probably a scam! Let the buyer beware.
