Hello, my name is Rodrigo and I made the decision to learn the world of forex.
I am quite curious why the person who introduced me to this world sent me directly to this page since I do not understand how I can open a demo or real account to start trading.
Sorry if I sound ignorant in those aspects but I have no experience in this type of platform.
metaquotes is the developer of both Metatrader 4 and 5, no need to find a reliable or unreliable broker to open a demo, just download the trading software from them and it will walk you through the process of opening a demo while it installs.
From there you on your own on figuring out how to open a trade, its not hard, go long or short and see what happens, exit the trade if it seems to be a loser and hold on if it is wining, play around, try stops and take profit functions and dont worry about loosing, its just a demo, you should be able to figure out the basic trading functions in a few hours.
After a day or 2 if you think this is your thing you might want to read up on risk ratios, some basic patterns as channels, 123 etc, nothing fancy at first, if you still interested there are sites that teach you more.
Honestly speaking, I have never found at any guys who takes forex as a simply hobby and also profitable from here. Because if anyone takes this market place as a part of hobbies , he or she will not be gainer . because men are not willing to grant more hardworking and dedication in their hobbies which is more appropriate to get maximal result in Fx.
The OP did not ask about this but still. This is a great hobby, I dont understand when someone says you cant be good at this if you take it as a hobby, i sail for a hobby, race sailboats and do great in ranking, if I did not know how to sail even after years of practice should I join a professional team, no. If I liked sailing but newer got good enough to race and be in the top should i stop sailing as a hobby, no of course not, if i continuously broke my boat, crashed it into the piers or rocks, should i stop sailing, probably.
