First of all you will need a Forex trading broker who has good credentials. You can begin by looking for brokers that come highly recommended by reading review sites. Reviews of various brokers should focus on what kind of actual performance they can show in Forex trading, how good their customer service, and how convenient trading with them is.
The broker should also be a member of professional organizations such as the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), the National Futures Association (NFA), and who is registered as a Futures Commission Merchant (FCM). The latter is a professional title that helps to insure that a broker has the necessary education to do Forex trading.

Fill out a Bank Application

The next step is to apply for an account at the bank, financial company, or online of offline brokerage at which the broker works. These applications can often be filled out online. If someone does not have internet access they can be faxed or even mailed in. The application will ask for various forms of basic information and is not difficult to complete. You are encouraged to submit it online if possible because this will be the quickest and most convenient way.

Provide Identification

You will most probably be required to send at least two forms of identification in with your application. One form of identification will need to be a picture ID. This might be a driver’s license, non driver ID, passport, or other similar form of photo identification. The other form of ID will need to have your address on it for address verification purposes. This can be a bank statement or bill of some kind on which is printed your mailing address. Copies of these forms of ID will need to be mailed in to the broker.

Deposit Money on you Forex Trading Account

After your application is processed, which should take about three to five days, your account should be ready to go. You will receive a login ID for accessing the account online once your application is accepted. Once you log into your account, you will find several options for depositing money. Different brokers will have different minimum deposit requirements. You may be able to deposit as little as 25 dollars or be required to deposit substantially more.

Begin Trading Currency

Once you have you opened the account you can begin making trades. As noted above, this is a skill you will need to have at least some familiarity with and in fact should not leave all your trading decisions up to the broker. The more understanding and experience you have with the Forex market the better your chances of making successful trades. But finding a good broker and setting up a convenient and easy to use account is the first step.
