How to start Trading

Whether a currency is increasing or declining in value, there is always a way for you to make money in Forex!

Entering the Market

The first step for becoming an FX trader is to open an account with a forex Broker. Brokers in these markets usually give the investors the opportunity to test their trading system and trading facilities through opening a demo account on their trading platform and start practicing buying and selling currencies.

The most important aspect of FX trading is to understand the FX platforms, as they are the direct connection to the financial and forex markets. They are the software you use to place your orders, watch the market prices and also place transactions.

As a trader, you would be sitting at the computer screen, looking for signals and interpreting whether to buy or sell. The main concept is to buy a product hoping to sell it on a higher price or vice versa, so that the difference is your profits, i.e. you need to buy low and sell high.

Benefits of Forex Trading with Switch TradingFX

  • tick Leverage

    Leverage is a key feature of Forex trading and means you only need to put up a small initial deposit, or margin, to enter a trade. Margined trading can be a more efficient use of your capital because you only have to provide a percentage of the overall value of your position while maintaining full exposure to the market. This effectively means that you increase your profit potential if the market moves in your favor, and your loss potential if the market moves against you.

  • tick 24-hour market

    Forex is an over-the-counter (OTC) market, which means trades don't take place through a centralized exchange, like shares or indices for example. Forex trading takes place across the globe, around the clock, from Sunday night through to Friday night. This means that, unlike any other financial market, investors can almost always respond to currency fluctuations caused by economic, political, and social events as they occur, without having to wait for markets to open.
