I've read some information in Babypips for months, and also some trading instruction/guide in some brokers' website.
I just don't know when to start? How do I know I am ready?

In forex trading, learning continues for ever for lifetime as the market evolves and so there is no 100% guarantee that you are ready to start trading at any specific point in time.

If you have a basic understanding about MT4 usage and forex market and already have a working and proven trading strategy. Then, start trading in a demo account and if you consistently make profit for 6 months, then there are some chances that you are somewhat ready, but it is not a guarantee that you will make profit in real account.

But without demo performance, if you moving to live account, then there is a 99% chance that you will overall loose money over time in forex trading.

But if you don't have a strategy, then try to study support and resistance or trend lines etc to develop your own strategy and then, start trading in demo account.

Just start with a demo account to play around and get the basics!

if you think you are ready to start trading then, i advice you to start demo trading and don't stick to for a long time, just learn the basics and move on to a micro account. minimum deposit is mostly $5 with most brokers and chose someone who offers negative balance protection, so you don't lose more than you deposited. this way you will get experience on the live market without having to lose more than $5 or so.

Thanks for everyone's advice, quite practical 😱
I'll start with a demo account, and change to real one if I think I can handle it.

Trade on demo until you consistently make an acceptable profit level for 3 to 6 months in a row.

Don't try and get rich fast.

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

don't stay on demo for too long, theres no ral learning in that in my opinion, because no emotions are involved, but get tour feet wet with a demo account and move to a real account. shoot if you can skip demo all together and start off with a $20 real account i promise you'll learn a lot quicker that way.

This is a tricky question because there are so many different types of traders. Technical traders can learn technical aspects very quickly which is why it appeals to many traders but is also a path to be sold by snake oil salesmen.

Fundamental analysis helps to tell you the REASON why the market is moving in a particular direction. However, this craft is also tricky because it takes a lot of reading and learning but in the end you will be better off knowing both fundamentals and technical.

Then the question becomes: What times do you have to trade ? Are you going to work and trying to trade part time ? Are you a day trader ? This makes the question about when to start trading even harder to figure out for many traders.

The main thing is to have a clear and strong conviction for each trade. Don't guess or take trades that do not make sense. You'll want to get in the game and trade, but it's a risk.

Treat it as if every single trade was the only trade you can make and pretend that each trade is your entire lot. This way you will build a physiology that you can't make a mistake or take trades that are too risky or not a high probability / conviction for the trade.

Higher win rate will increase your success so make each trade count is important depending on how your planning to trade.

This is a simple question - trade demo until you have been consistently profitable on demo for 3 consecutive months.

Start trading on demo account. That’s on you how much you want to take. Learn the basics and keep on learning, one can never stop learning as the forex market is dynamic.
