Forex Trading, One can simply define forex as foreign exchange in a decentralizable global market where all the world’s currencies trade. Statistics have it that the Foreign Exchange Market also known as Forex market is the largest market in the world with an average daily trading volume exceeding $5 trillion.

Primarily, Before Forex trading was exclusively for banks where the banks make a huge amount of dollars by just exchanging the currencies of different countries. Thanks to the internet, we have seen spike in search of forex trading knowledge no doubt 21st Century has evolved so well that you can trade Forex at the comfort of your room and you can start trading with as little as  $100 startup.

What are the risks involved in Forex trading? Is Forex trading still profitable for Average individual? How much money can you earn trading Forex on part-time or as full-time FOREX trader? Is it possible for a middle-class person to start Forex trading business with little knowledge about the money market and financial management?


QUICK FACT  Forex trading involves the disparities in foreign exchange rates, as the economic state of different countries usually determines profit or loss in Forex trading at a time.

Considering the fact that the economy of different countries differs and is not stable compared to one another at any point in time, the Forex market is never fixed or stagnant at any point in time. It is constantly changing and not fixed so its never accurately predicted. This is where the profit or loss comes to play. So if the currency rises in your favor, you make profits, and if it goes down against you, your loss.

5G or 4G Fast Internet Connection to Trade Forex

If really you want to succeed with Forex Trading, the strength of your internet connection matters, so I recommend trading Forex in a 4G network available area, even if you are trading with 3G network, just make sure its fast.  Please its not advisable to trade Forex in a Rural area where network connectivity is poor unless you want to risk losing your profits. Your internet connection should be reliable especially if you are trading from Tier 3 Countries. Without a reliable internet connection, it will be difficult for you to make profits because your internet has to be fast and reliable to enable you to take actions quickly.

High Processing and Bug-Free Laptop

Note that you can trade Forex with just any device but for constant profit sake, don’t trade with low-end device, so we are highlighting the key factors for a long term successful trades in the Foreign Market, If you are serious and determined in making good profits from trading forex, you should get a high performing and reliable laptop to enable you perform well in the Foreign market. Don’t be deceived by anyone telling you how you can make good profit with low-end device or laptop because most of the time,  the losses people make is as a result of unreliable trading devices.

People make a good amount of profit from Forex trading even from Tier 3 countries and you too can do the same, but trading Forex with little funds is not a good idea.
