Forex Trading Mini Account

Each day, an average of just over $5 trillion (NZD) is exchanged amongst all the world’s currencies in the foreign exchange currency market (Forex).

To attempt to gain some perspective on this staggering figure, consider this: If you were fortunate enough to have retained all 5 trillion of your dollar banknotes since they were demonetized and were to lay them end to end, they would stretch the entire 390,000 km to the moon and back 9000 times.

Fortunately, anyone desirous of participating in the world’s most liquid trading forum can do so for $1000 by establishing a Forex trading Mini account.

There are several benefits to exploring the Forex market via a Mini account.

Chief of these is that starting at this level provides the opportunity to delve into Forex trading at a low risk level. A Mini account holder gains access to the same currency markets that governments, international banks and multinational corporations use to convert currencies from those they hold to those they require.

This represents a vast contrast to more traditional investment arenas, where personal relationships, insider information and deals conducted at the country club mean that some investors receive an edge and preferential treatment over the average investor.

Another advantage of Forex Mini account offers is that start-up expenses are very minimal and well within the reach of just about anyone.

In addition to the $1000 margin deposit required to establish a Forex Mini account, there are only five other elements involved. Most people already have some of these and the others can be obtained free of charge.

The first two, a computer or device for connecting, and a high-speed connection to the Internet, are commonplace items.

Any relatively recent desk or laptop PC will be satisfactory. Many Forex brokers also offer mobile trading applications for smartphones, thus eliminating the computer as an absolute necessity.

The Internet connection does need to be high-speed. Anything less than 1 MB per second will permit a lag in the time and price between when a trader submits an order and the order is actually filled, known as slippage, that is seldom advantageous. The Internet connection also needs to be reliable and not subject to frequent, unpredictable outages.

Software, usually referred to as a Trading platform, is necessary to access price data and execute orders. Most Forex brokers will make one or more freely available to clients as an incentive to open and fund an account. Most trading platforms are easy to navigate and intuitive in nature. Some are web based and others can be downloaded and stored locally on a computer hard drive.

Finding the next element, a Forex broker, requires the most time, patience and diligence.

Competition amongst brokers for clients is fierce. Brokers go all out in their marketing efforts, so sifting through various claims, offers and benefits to find the best match will require thorough research.

Finally, traders will need a trading strategy.

A word of caution is in order here. There is no shortage of charlatans and pretenders, who for a fee will provide you with an infallible trading strategy. Always remember, if it sounds too good to be true…

A Forex Mini account supplies the perfect opportunity to develop a personal strategy that best suits and individual’s lifestyle, risk tolerance and goals. There are many free strategies that can be tested and customized without squandering perfectly good money that can best be devoted to funding the trading account.
