Most people start doing it as just a hobby, but later on get hooked on it because it becomes a lucrative income. I’m telling you, there are people who could actually get rich doing it. The amount of money that the market makes in a day goes up to a whopping $22.4 billion and trading in FOREX goes up to $5 trillion daily.

Some would say that it would take for one to be a psychic though because this involves predicting the money flow. But for those who have been doing this for quite a while, it actually doesn’t take some paranormal skills to make a lot of money from it. All you need to do is be keen. It is actually less risky because you don’t have to even invest a lot of your money in here and you can get good results.

First, you must have a reliable and trustworthy online FOREX broker. The downside of doing this is probably being scammed. But that is unlikely to happen if you research well about the agency and making sure that they are legit.

You also need to open up an online Forex Brokerage Account to get this thing started. You can either have a personal one or an account that allows someone to have access to it to manage it for you. If you’re a first timer, it is okay to entrust it to someone who is a savant in this field. But again, make sure that you completely trust that person because he or she will be pretty much handling your money.

Fill out everything that the online account that is requiring you to fill out and keep an eye on the charges, specifically the money transfer from your bank account to your brokerage. Once you finished that, you can then activate your account. If you have a broker do it for you, he or she will then send you an email of a link for the activation.

After that, congratulations! You can now officially trade online! Before you start trading, I would like you to know that you MUST have at least some basic knowledge in market analysis.
