I just started trading live and I have such similar questions. As of now I’m confused about whether it is important to trade with a domestic broker or offshore regulated brokers are good too? Any suggestion will do.

Trade with the broker who is registered/regulated under your jurisdiction. For example if you reside in UK, trade with a broker who is registered/regulated with FCA.

Thats how i choose a broker. It gives better security to your account.

The more your practice, the more you learn.

@Eric Make a list of brokers you want to trade with and compare their spreads. Whatever suits you, go with it. Simple as that.

I tried doing that but couldn’t figure it out like that. I think working on demos is a better way. There is no possibility of losing and the worst case scenario is blowing up an account which I think is a part of the learning process. I have little experience with trading but I keep trying so...

I agree that demo trading is a good way of testing your skills without having to worry about blowing your account. You can apply different strategies on your demo account and find out whether they are worth applying on your live account or not.

I am not much sure about demo trading because it fills you with confidence and when you go live, nothing seems to be working. For me, demo trading is nothing more than wasting time.

Well, that is everyone’s personal choice to demo trade or not. If you ask me, none of my trades are complete without demo trading. Whenever I learn a new strategy, I apply it on my demo accounts with fxview and ic markets and if it works there, I go live. It doesn’t only give me confidence but also lets me know what changes I must make in my trades to make them work for me.

Garry, I agree that you won’t lose anything when you demo trade. But if a strategy works well on your demo account and fails when you go live?

It is meant to happen because of the unpredictable nature of the market. That’s why it is said that there are no guarantees in the forex market and you have to be prepared for anything and everything.

See when you go live the factors change considerably because the emotions for trading change. When you are doing live trade then obviously the risk for the loss increases. It is very important to know the emotional side of yourself because it will affect the real world trades. The broker fees and all is meant after this process.

The markets can churn the real traders out if they do not get on the track. If the strategy which they are using is not working then definitely we should change the strategy. Brokerage is only one part of the trade.

Flexibility is the key to winning because if we are flexible enough we can earn a lot of good money. I was scalping because the markets were not that good. So there are many brokers in the market but for me the most suitable broker is Fxview due to low spreads. When the markets were moving again I came to position trading through IB because of its good analytical tools. So you cannot always trust one strategy. The brokers charge their fees because they provide us services.

I in fact prefer brokers regulated by multiple financial authorities.
