Online Forex Brokers - a Service All Novice Traders Should Use

By: Monica Hendrix

Most new forex traders want to know if they can be successful forex traders in real time trading so, they try a demo account and conclude that as they have made money they will win - nothing could be further from the truth.

Trading a demo account lacks the vital ingredient of the pressure you feel when trading real money. This is why all novice forex traders should try the new service outlined below which is provided by some online forex brokers.

Before we begin lets think about pressure and give you a scenario:

You can throw a ball into a basket in your garden easily when practicing in your garden - but try it in front of 100,000 people, you have to score to win and the pressure is on and it's not so easy!

While not a direct comparison, it shows you what influence pressure has and it's the same in forex trading, when only dummy money is on the line - its easy.

With real money on the line it becomes harder.

A demo account is useful only for learning the basics of executing your forex trading strategy, executing signals etc and knowing how the platform works and that's about it.

So how do you get the feeling of pressure, without taking a big risk?

The answer is - a protected forex account.

This is an account with limited risk and the salient points offered by forex brokers in relation to these accounts are outlined below:

-You trade small amount with fixed leverage

-You make as many trades as you like in a set period even if you are debit

At the end of a set period the following occurs:

-You take all the profits made

-The broker takes the losses

The set period is normally a few weeks and the advantages are:

You have limited risk on small amount of trial money and get a lot of practice, as you can trade even when you're in debit. A

You also have the motivation to make money, as you keep the profits and the risk is limited and capped.

These accounts offered by forex brokers, act as bridge between demo accounts and real time trading. They give you a feel for what its like to trade money, while at the same time offering a set risk.

Forex trading is probably 20% method and 80% mindset.

You need the right mindset to execute your forex trading system with discipline.

Most traders fail because they lack discipline as methods are easy to learn.

This new service from online forex brokers offers a taster of what it's like to be a trader and deal with pressure.

They're useful for all new currency traders. If you try it with an online forex broker, you will have an indication of whether you can enjoy long term currency trading success or not.
