How To Identify The Right Forex Broker

Currencies / Forex Trading Feb 01, 2018 - 10:40 AM GMT

By: Kavinesh_A

Currencies Those who have been into forex market would certainly understand that your success or failure in the trading market would depend to a large extent on the kind of broker you choose.  In a real life situation, you will be giving all your trading capital the forex dealer. You will trust him fully and expect that he will trade well with it and give you some handsome profits at the end of the day. You could be an expert in forex with the best of experience and strategies. However, if you have a dubious forex dealer, you could end up losing your hard earned money and you could be in dire straits. Hence you must be careful when it comes to choosing the right forex dealer. This is not an easy task given the fact that there are dozens of forex dealers. We give below the list of a few tips to be kept in mind when it comes to choosing the right broker.




Identify The Reason For Which You Are Hiring Them

The first and foremost task is to identify the main reasons as to why you need the services of a forex broker. You must decide as to the quantum of trading you would like to do. If you wish to trade quite a bit and capture small moves then you could consider hiring the services of an ECN broker. You will be required to pay commission on the trades but you can certainly the spreads will be very tight. On the other hand if you are looking for big moves then it would be better to hire a regular forex broker who has the wherewithal and experience to handle it.

Decide On The Capital Which You Like To Invest

The amount of capital which you decide to invest is another important attribute to consider when you are on the lookout for the right Forex broker Slovenia professional. If you are able to set apart $5,000 you will be allowed to trade in mini lots. You should not open a standard account unless you have at least $50,000 available with you. You also must set the minimum capital requirements as far as daily trading is concerned.

Choose The Right Account Type And Broker

Once the above things have been decided and set in place, you should start looking at the job of identifying a good account type and broker. You should also try and find out ways and means by which you will be depositing the money and withdrawing it from your forex account. You must be aware that different brokers offer different methods. You must do some research and choose the right brokers who are in line with your specific needs and requirements. This is not an easy job as a beginner and you must spend some time on the internet and gather as much information as possible and only then get into the actual job of depositing money or even opening an account.

What To Expect From A Broker

There are a few things which you must expect from a good forex broker. First and foremost you must try and stay away from those who refer themselves as dealing desk. If you are into day trading and interact directly with the market, sending it to the trading desk takes time and you could always end up in a situation where you may have to re-quote. This could make the actual difference between profit and loss and therefore it is an important point which you must always keep in mind.

Be Sure That You Are With A Regulated Broker

Each country has its own rules and regulations as far as forex trading is concerned. Hence, as a trader you must be sure that you are dealing with brokers who are approved by the regulatory authorities of the country to deal in certain currencies. For example there are a few countries like Cyprus where there is not much of a regulation. You should always look for brokers from countries like USA, UK, India, Japan, Canada and other such reputed countries where the financial and commercial system is well regulated.

Try And Practice Before Getting In

The next important task is to try and practice the actual trading in forex currencies and understand the various terms and phrases that are used. You could look for forex broker sites which offer such practice-environments where you are allowed to practice with virtual money.  You will not run the risk of losing money but at the same time you will be able to learn the finer elements of forex trading. They provide software solutions in an online environment where you will be able to handle everything from buying, selling, quoting, requoting and so on. However, since you will be able to work in a practice environment you will never lose money. Once you learn it well only then would it be advisable to get into a real life environment.

Be Sure Of Losses

In the initial stages in spite of best theoretical knowledge, it is quite possible that you will lose a few bucks. You should be able to take these losses in your stride because it will help you to further learn the practical elements of such trading. This certainly will stand you in good stead when it comes to actual live environment. Therefore being patient and persevering is the name of the game and it will not be long before you are able to make big money from the forex markets. You will move amongst the 5% who actually see money in forex trading. You must be aware that 95% of forex traders do not make big money and the mistake lies in their knowledge and information rather than the forex market itself.

Conclusion

At the end of the day, being successful as a forex trader is all about identifying the right forex broker. Additionally, you must look for knowledge and information from as many sources as possible and only then take the plunge in the right sense of the term.
