No matter what market you decide to choose (Forex, Stocks, or any other), the first thing you need to do before you start trading is to register in the Members Area and open a trading account.
Below are the instructions on how to proceed, as well as our recommendations to help you decide on the basic parameters of your first trading account.
Deposit/withdrawal of funds
Access to transaction history
Learning new instruments
The key tool of any trader is a trading terminal. Before opening your first trading account, choose the platform you’re going to conquer financial markets with.
The most popular trading platform
Updated and improved version of MT4
Terminal from RoboMarkets
After deciding on the platform, you need to choose an account type.
The best option for gaining trading experience is to trade on a demo account. This will help you learn the basic instruments and terminal, and test trading strategies without the risk of loosing any funds because all trading operations are performed with virtual funds. When trading through the MT4 and MT5 platforms, you have the option to choose from Demo ECN or Demo Pro. Another option for beginners is a real ProCent account. Accounts of this type can be opened in the MT4 and MT5 platforms.
Demo ECN is used for testing trading strategies by experienced traders.
Demo Pro is a special version intended for traders with experience less than
ProCent offers the opportunity to embark on real trading without investing much money. To start trading, you are required to make the minimum deposit of 100 USD. The monetary unit of Cent accounts is a cent (0.01 USD). It allows traders to perform trading operations with small amounts of money.
It is better to start your journey through financial markets with one of the most popular global currencies. After gaining trading experience, you can choose the currency base account of your preference.
The American Dollar is the most wide-spread and popular base currency for trading accounts. Most educational courses and tutorials are intended for the USD-based trading accounts.
Having an account in EUR is very convenient for European Union residents. You can always deposit funds and withdraw them without any additional conversions. However, this currency is less common than the USD.
The leverage allows you to trade with borrowed funds. The leverage value reflects the ratio between your own money and borrowed funds. For example, the leverage value 1:5 increases the capital available for investing by 5 times.
When operating on Demo accounts, you can choose the leverage value up to 1:30 and assess all opportunities offered by borrowed funds. As for real accounts, it is not recommended for beginners to use a leverage value higher than 1:10.
So, this means that you’ve decided on the proper parameters of your first trading account and are now ready to open it by completing all the fields on the registration form.
All you have to do now is download the terminal you chose before, and you are ready to explore trading on financial markets!
