Step One

Welcome To Step One, Getting Your Broker Sorted.

Now, I have done extensive research on Forex broker's so you don't have too.
The broker I use and recommend for you to use is one I have used everyday for the past 5 years.
In this time I have never had any issues, instant deposit and fast withdrawal's.

Firstly, It is important that you have a regulated broker so you know your money is safe.
Secondly, it is important to have (STP) - Straight Through Processing and an (ECN) - Electronic Communications Network broker so that you know your broker is not ripping you off on your trades like most market-maker broker's.
Also, you can rest assured your money is safe. 

Next, you need the (MT4) - Meta Trader 4 platform.
You can download MT4 here - Meta Trader 4 Download Page, 
or you can download direct from your brokers website.

Click Here To Join My Broker "ValuTrades" Open an MT4 - ECN is standard.

For USA clients, Click Here To Join "FX Choice" Open an MT4 - Classic account.

You will need 2 types of ID to open a LIVE account but, you can open a DEMO account to practice without any Identification. All you need is your name and email address.

 Both live and demo accounts are free but,
you MUST get verified before you can start trading on a live account with real money.

Once you have been verified for a live account or if you choose a demo account you will be given login details, you must save these details somewhere safe. You can then use them to login to the MT4 Platform.

I recommend using a computer, Desktop or Laptop as it's easier to navigate and you can see the charts much clearer.
If you don't have a computer you can download and use the MT4 App on your Smart Phone or Tablet.

Then just enter your login details from your broker into your MT4 platform, that's it!

Once verified you can deposit real money into your live account or
if it's a demo account you will be given a specified balance to trade with.
All this can be seen and done by logging into your ValuTrades Or
FX Choice back office on their websites.
Your funds will be added automatically to the trading account you select.

There is a NO minimum deposit, which is great if you have a low income.
If you start with a hundred dollars - I recommend you can start trading with 0.01 lot. 0.01 lot = 10 cent per pip.
Don't worry this will all be explained in Step 2.

Now you have your MT4 platform set up you can move on to step 2.
