I suggest you can find reliable broker from FPA forums, there are many honest traders provide their review and feedback about broker experience, ps. never try to find best one, just suitable is enough.

As someone just striking out on this wonderful venture, you probably wouldn't go wrong with Interactive Brokers. The rates may not be the best, but they have a good track record as far as being on the up-and-up. Not many worries there. All brokerages make their money pretty much the same way.

 

If you've already decided on a trading platform, you would need to find a broker that supports it. Other than that compare commissions, ask about margin requirements, and even though it's like pulling teeth sometimes, get a list of other fees and charges.

 

As a matter of due diligence, you can check the FCM website to find past rulings for or against a firm, which will also provide details on the nature of the filing, and fines levied. None of that will make much sense to you, but if you see a lot of activity in that regard you may want to look elsewhere. No need to pay much attention to "failure to supervise" as they all get hit with that from time to time... then again, unless it's a lot. Even after you have selected a broker, it's just good business to check the website occasionally just to keep yourself current.

 

Edit: I meant to say "NFA" website not "FCM"

I recommend hotforex, I have traded with it for more than one year, withdrawal, spread and system are all well for me. You can check FPA, it's a very good place to share ideas.

i do not trust to FPA they have bad reputation

 

they do not have bad reputation, except for instaforex i guess, many brokers dont like FPA due to the truth being revealed there. forexpeace army helped lots of traders, and exposed lots of bad brokers like 5starforex and capitalone and the issues with ironfx etc. the best place to actually know a broker is forex peace army. i have not seen any other site that can be actually better than them .

You have to always be careful.

 

Forex Peace Army does check ip addresses to catch companies who post about themselves...

 

 

remember one angry clients does not necessarily mean a company is a fraud...it could be something valid

 

but if you find thousands of clients who haven't gotten their money back, you know you have an issue -- like with iron fx.

      Hello everyone!
      I am an advanced trader, with many years of experience (about 15 years - 10 living exclusively from this)
      I am going to give you some tips that you must know:
      There are going to be many people who tell you that trade is easy, that with only crossiing a line  with another one you will win a lot of money.... and that´s not true.  No, Sir, reality is far away from that. Many people who start arrive here with the hope that someone "gives them" a free method, they watch youtube videos thinking that this will give them the "strategy" and in a few days they realize that it does not work for them - they lose money - and then They go looking for a new one ... and so on. YES, IT´S TRUE YOU EARN IN TRADING, A LOT. BUT THINK: for a few to win (10% + any BROKER) many others must lose (90% people). YOU MUST HAVE A MONEY MANAGMENT FORMULA ( you can email me) People study so many years to live on this, not because they are dumb, but to know what they do, when, and have absolute effectiveness. It´s very easy to get lost here: do not disperse, jumping from one to another strategy WILL NEVER give you money, it will only waste your time and make you nervous when trading. PEOPLE WHO CHANGE THEIR METHOD CONSTANTLY : LOOOOSE ALWAYS.   If you have the knowledge to develop it, take your time and do it.  Always try it first on DEMO for at least 2 weeks! If not: search to buy a solid strategy (no you tube videos pleassse ! Avoid losing money! ) This is like any business, it requires some capital to start (capital = money in the broker + solid made /purchased strategy) If you are lost: I RECOMMEND YOU NOT TO WASTE TIME IN YOUTUBE, JOIN PEOPLE WHO HAVE EXPERIENCE AND IF YOU ARE GOING TO BUY A METHOD ... PLEASE !!!! DO NOT BUY 10 BAD AND CHEAP METHODS, SAVE MONEY AND BUY ONLY 1 BUT EXCLUSIVE AND MUST ALLWAYS HAVE SUPPORT !!!!!  Do not buy Signals! They never keep up with constant profits! One week will win and the next will lose. Nothing that does not depend absolutely on you will give you the money you are looking for. And if you do not have a strategy (made or purchased) do not even try PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE: DO NOT USE REAL MONEY! AT LEAST 2 WEEK DEMO FREE HELP HERE!!!!!  IF YOU FOLLOW MY ADVICE YOU WILL BE PART OF THAT 10% WINNER, email me.
      Have a nice trading day

    • Date : 20th February 2020. Yen tumble continues - 20th FebruaryThe Yen has continued to tumble, and is showing a near 2% decline against the Dollar from yesterday’s opening levels.USDJPY printed a 10-month high at 112.10, just 28 pips away from its 10-month high, and EURJPY posted a 2-week high, at 121.00.There have been reports over the last day of major fund managers cutting yen longs, including against short regional Asian currency hedge positions, though most Asian currencies came under fairly heavy pressure today amid concerns about the coronavirus outbreak spreading regionally at an increased rate. There has also been talk of Japanese funds buying US Treasuries. While China reported a large drop in new coronavirus cases, just as the PBoC delivered an expected rate cut, South Korea and Japan reported increases in new cases.This news led to a mixed performance among Asian equity markets, with China outperforming while other benchmark indices sputtered. Trying to call the point of peak contagion, and thereby the peak of economic disruption, is tough, though the consensus seems to be that it will happen in March or April, aided by the arrival of warmer weather in the northern hemisphere (although scientists aren’t exactly sure if warm weather will have the same quelling effect as it does on flu and cold viruses).Japan’s Q4 GDP data, released on Monday, disappointed, showing a 1.6% q/q contraction versus the median forecast for -0.9%. Q3 data were also revised down, and the figures came amid expectations for a dismal current quarter performance given the impact of measures to contain the virus outbreak.There is a risk that USDJPY might sharply reverse gains should risk appetite in global markets deteriorate and sustain. Intraday meanwhile, momentum indicators continue their positive configuration, suggesting that despite the fact that the asset reached overbought territory there is still room to the upside. Stochastics slopes into overbought area and MACD extends above signal line suggesting strengthening of positive bias, whilst ATR posted a 16 pips move. Some correction could be seen ahead of US session, with immediate Support at 112.00 and 111.58 (yesterday’s peak), however the overall outlook remains positive. Resistance sits at 2019 peak , i.e. 112.38 and at 112.66 (R2 of the day).Always trade with strict risk management.
