What is Forex?


Hello, and Welcome to the Wonderful and Immensely Profitable world of Online Forex Trading. You might have heard someone introduce themselves with the Prestigious title of ‘I am a Forex Trader’, or you might have seen one of your friends rake in tonnes of cash over a short period of time after starting to ‘Trade Forex Online’. “How can I Trade Forex, too?” You must have asked. Don’t worry, I will show you how 🙂

Before I do, however, I need to define what exactly is ‘Forex Trading’.

To Trade Forex Online, you will be buying currencies and selling them back at a profit when the price rises or falls. In Forex, you make money both ways. Forex is just short for FOReign EXchange.

Basically, in a more stepwise explanation, you will;
1. Click HERE to Open a FREE Brokers account. You need a Brokers account to be able to trade forex and it is just a click away and it is FREE!!
2. In your Brokers account you will open a DEMO account and Download the FREE software known as MT4. You are using a DEMO account because you should practice first before you risk REAL money in a REAL account.
3. Using the Free Software called MT4, you will identify currencies whose prices are either going up or down and either BUY or SELL to turn a profit at the end of the trade duration.

How successful you end up becoming as a forex trader will depend on a couple of things. First of all you will need an EXCELLENT trading strategy. You cannot just blindly plunge into the Market and expect to make money. Please click HERE to check out the Profitable Trading Strategy that I personally use to trade.

You might also need a few classes before you are comfortable enough to open a REAL account and do REAL trading.

  1. Long ago, it was as much as 1000USD. Today, you can open an Online Forex Brokers account with as little as $25. I, however, recommend that you not trade with anything less than $100 for you to turn a profit. Thank you. theforexguyKE

  2. I see you’ve stated that as low as $6 you start trading online. Now if you stake that low amount how much would you expect get in return sir?

    • I wouldn’t recommend trading with $6, but assuming you do, the best you can do is open a cents account and shoot for about 10pips a day. You will roughly be making 10US cents per trade. Not worth your time if you ask me 🙁
