Learn how to trade Forex

Free "RoboForex analytics center" for all clients. Read more...

Forex market in itself is the same as any other: commodity market, stock market, or the one that is near your house. All of them have similar features; the difference is only in the goods offered and the methods of making a deal.

Since Forex is a currency market, it’s obvious that the product it offers is foreign exchange currency. Your job as a trader is to buy currency at a cheaper rate and sell it at the more expensive. The difference is your profit. You can also do it in reverse. Knowing that the price for the currency will go down, you sell it at the expensive rate and buy it back later at a cheaper price. The difference in price makes your forex profit.


How to start trading on the Forex market?

To start trading on the currency market, you need to register on RoboForex website, open a trading account, and download to your computer and install the application, which provides you an opportunity to trade – a trading terminal. We’ve created a wide range of Forex accounts, which meet the demand of any trader regardless their trading experience or preferences. You may trade on both a demo account in order to train and test your skills, and a real account to earn real money. For beginners, it would be better to open an account of Demo Fix type or a real Fix-Cent account.


How do traders earn money on the Forex market?

For example, you opened a trading account with 100 USD. Using the indicators available in the terminal, you set the upside and downside borders on the EURUSD chart and make a decision whether to buy or sell. Assume that on October 3 you predict that the quotes will rise, and thus you buy 7,500 EUR at the price of 1.318, making a deal of 7,500 * 1.318 = 9,885 USD. This is possible due to the level that allows you to make transactions worth 100 times more than you have at your account. On October 27 the rate rises up to 1.42. You decide to sell 7,500 EUR, making a deal worth of 7,500 * 1.42 = 10,650 USD. Your earnings amounted to 10,650 - 9,885 = 765 USD.
