Forex market is so complicated above all when you are a beginner , and there is lots of chances to take wrong decision even when choosing a broker . so the importance of a fx mentor is more. but dont fall a scam , good luck
It is definitely hard for the beginner as they have nothing to back them up aside the financial that they are putting into trading. While I agree with you about mentor, I think it is bit hard to find one now these days these people could pretend to be a good mentor. What could be useful is to read the market‘s movement and trying it out in demo and see what can happen. You could always start with real account with maybe $100 deposit and then try your best to make profit from there. Call quit only if you cannot handle losing and bad emotions.
It is difficult to find a broker, but honestly, a more important feature is just making sure that you are doing well yourself with trading. In the end, these things tend to work themselves out. It's always best to take baby steps to begin trading than to go in head first, kind of as feelsofine alluded to. Just start small or do play money, see what you can make it of, build up from there. Rome wasn't built in a day as they say.
Pick a highly regulated brokerage with a strong guarantee of asset protections.
Start on demo and stay there until you can make a reasonable profit level for a minimum of 3 to 6 months in a row.
Then move up to a micro or cent account. There is a strong psychological impact for most people when it comes to moving to a live account from demo.
Only invest money you don't care about losing and will have NO IMPACT on your life when the account is blown.
Focus on RISK MANAGEMENT as the #1 priority.
If it looks too good to be true, it's probably a scam! Let the buyer beware.
