Forex trading has entered the home and lives of many people,
both men and women , from many walks of life. And this is a
relatively new phenomenon. It was only about 10 years ago that
Forex moved into our homes. And this was made possible only
thanks to the invention and rapid spreading of the internet.
Before the internet era, forex trading was an activity reserved
only to the big players, banks, brokerage firms, in short; only
wealthy people. But the arrival of the internet and the trading
platforms available for downloading to the computers of regular
citizens have come to transform the face of forex in a few years.
This easy access to the forex markets and the ever increasing
number of new forex traders has motivated the brokerage firms to
improve their services and the accessibility of their platforms.
Not only with better and more efficient software but also with
new financial products as the Mini-account that allows people to
trade with a minimum margin of only $100 or even less.
Once you download and install the trading platform from your
chosen broker, you will notice the many features available to
the trader. These trading platforms will show you the current
prices of the most important currency pairs, also included with
the platform will be charting software that will let you
the technical analysis needed in order to find good trades. The
charting tools coming in every software included with the
trading platform are really handy, they usually have all the
important indicators, RSI, Bollinger Bands, Fibonacci levels,
etc. and they are just one click away from you to use. And of
course, you can even draw on the chart. The software also
includes applications for the entering and exiting of trades
(stop, limit, etc), and all is managed in real time through your
internet connection. Here I should mention that the higher speed
the better. You don't want to lose information in the middle of
a tight trade.
So, you can trade forex at home mainly thanks to the internet
which allows you to have a real time, direct connection to the
markets. This allows you to track the prices and its behavior in
real time, and with all the tools available in your trading
platform you should feel really lucky of living in the internet
era, where almost everything is just a click away.
