I always advice new traders to start off from the determination why do they need trading. If they can answer this question without any illusions, like making millions, then they should start learning trading activity. Try to learn as much information as you can and try to do it chaotically. Of course, you have to determine which trading style is the most preferable to you. For example, if we speak about technical analysis and short-term trading, then try to learn everything about it. When you will gain some information, you have to find a proper broker and open a demo account. There you can start practicing and gaining experience. After you see the results of your practicing, try to trade small amounts of money on a real account and analyze your steps.
1. Know the significance of educating yourself regarding the Forex market. 2. Understand your limits and risk taking power. 3. Understand where to stop during the trade. 4. Control your emotions. 5. Maintain a slow and steady pace.
