    I believe that every newbie should try his theoretical knowledge in practice before getting his first real money account. I learn about the stock market from articles and blogs, from books written by successful traders. I actually read a lot about the stock market before trying to trade real stocks. I didn't fund my account with real money until I made 10 successful sales on my demo account.

    Forex trading is nothing quite depending on the appreciation or depreciation of a given currency. In other words, FX traders profit by correctly predicting the direction of a currency against another. Let me explain this. for instance you would like to shop for US Dollars because you think that the USD will rise (appreciate); during this case, you do not just buy US Dollars, you purchase US Dollars against another currency. this is often called the rate of exchange .

    Before going any longer you would like to know this. When placing a trade the FX markets instrument you employ may be a currency pair. during a currency pair there are 2 currencies; the bottom currency and therefore the quote currency.

    A base currency is that the first currency listed during a Forex pair, while the second currency is named the quote currency. Let's take the GBP/USD as an example and let ́s say it ́s trading at 1.2985; this suggests that 1 GBP equals 1.2985 USD.

    Let's return to the instance where you wanted to shop for US Dollars because your analysis indicated that the US Dollar was getting to rise. Since the USD is that the quote currency during this currency pair you'd need to SELL the GBP/USD so as to shop for US Dollars. differently to form your bullish back the USD would be to shop for USD/JPY.

    If you sell GBP/USD and therefore the price of this currency pair goes right down to 1.2895 you'll make money (obviously), but more importantly you'll make money on your bullish back the US Dollar because now the GBP is cheaper against the USD which suggests that the USD appreciated against the GBP.

    This is what FX trading is all about, analyzing markets (currencies), choosing the proper instrument (currency pair) to trade your idea and take advantage of the moves.

    The foreign exchange (also known as FX or forex) market is a global marketplace for exchanging national currencies against one another. Because of the worldwide reach of trade, commerce, and finance, forex markets tend to be the largest and most liquid asset markets in the world.

    Forex trading is the means through which one currency is changed into another. When trading forex, you are always trading a currency pair – selling one currency while simultaneously buying another.
