Hello,
I believe tips will not help you, if you are looking from where to start with FX trading.
There are really many, many free courses and education for creating the base. Here are one (there are also many commercials, but it is not bad to understand beginning and some helpful advices related with few set-ups.

Baldo is right take the time to learn the basics first. Too many people jump into trading because of the lure of fast riches and never take the time to learn the basics. There is an overabundance of material on the internet and in stores that can teach you the basics.
If I can ever help to you please let me know.

Better to lose less then to make more

yes, establish your foundation of knowledge first, don't focus on tips too much.. you can deal with it later on, in the mean time, you can soak yourself in reading or watching VODs that could increase your basic learning in fx trading

I'm new here too, the first post of many I hope. I'm brand new to trading myself and I can give you a few tips that I've very quickly learned:

- Go to udemy and sign up for as many free forex courses as you can.
- Make sure you know the basics before you ever start a real account.
- Learn the important indicators: Candles, Moving Averages, MACD, RSI, PSAR, Bollinger Bands, Fibonacci, Risk.
- Never trade a live account before you fully understand the above, and have proven in a demo account you can turn over at least 80% profit
- Never place a trade at 10 PM after any amount of alcohol consumption (trust me I lost 2 K finding this out).
- Avoid all kind of emotions and keep your ego well away.
- Make a daily plan for each pair you follow. I follow 6 pairs and write a plan for each.
- Part of writing the plan is to study the fundamentals, so read the news regarding the pair/s you follow.
- Don't ever listen to scammers. You can spot these easy because they prefer to teach Forex, because they may know enough about Forex, but never been able to make a living from it.
- From beginning to end trading forex is about the trend, if you can find 1 trend a day that gets you 20/30/40 pips, then you'll never need another job. I left a 100 K job to travel last year, and when I came back Feb 2017 I wanted to travel more. So for me trading Forex is the key to working on the go (travel). And I'm already making close to what I earned in my old job.

Study hard and you'll be rewarded. I can't speak for signals or auto trading, but do lots of manual trading first and understand fundamentals and technicals.

The best tip for your beginning – start learning forex by yourself and dedicate a big part of your free time to this. You can also check - https://www.babypips.com/ Very useful website!!! After that, form a strategy that fits your needs for trading, then search for a broker (but be very careful !!! always choose broker who is regulated and with good reputation). If you want to become a trader – don’t waste any more time 😄 Good luck!

Accept the loss as experience

As a new trader, all you are looking to do is learn to trade profitably and the bigger prize will follow.
.Newbie traders should learn the basics on demo first. As a new trader, all you are looking to do is learn to trade profitably and the bigger prize will follow. After getting familiar with the forex market start with a small account and work on your emotions. Tip is to risk only a smaller portion which you can afford to lose.

Also it is a good idea for a trader to test new stategies on demo account.
