6. From your experience, what advice would you give a person who wants to enter the forex world?
My advice to the beginning trader entering the Forex world is as follows:
• Learn the market and understand what you’re getting into.
• Research and find the broker that suits your needs and wants. Look for a good offering but more importantly customer service, don’t go for the low rates offer without being certain they have a good customer service department. From my extensive experience in the Forex world your key to success will be your client-broker relationship. I can honestly say that at XForex they put an emphasis on servicing clients, which is so important.
