I'd recommend a brick and mortar casino. You get food, drinks, nice ladies etc and lose your money on average all the same

Seriously, forex trading is a very competitive and crowded space. If you don't have technical capability and expertise to process petabytes of data, you might as well play a roulette instead

Currency & Share Trading Platforms

Dear Ef'ers,

For a while now I have been dabbling in currency trading between my UK, CH & AU accounts but now I want to increase the frequency to weekly or daily trades in the attempt to make a little side money.

Can you kindly share your experiences of best in class online trading platforms?
I am first interested in currency + and second, in stocks & share platforms for a couple of initial buys and market observation.

A while back I read that there was a new trading platform released in Switzerland which was promoted as a positive industry hijack, but I'll be darned if I can find it again.

Any feedback is greatly appreciated and I thank you in advance
Signed, the finance green horn

OP, did you forget that you started a EF thread few weeks back with the same question?

Perhaps, respond on that thread rather than starting a new one.

Technically you are correct. They were set up in Geneva by Andrei Duka (Russian) and survived the early years of the FX Wild West when forex was globally not a regulated business.


And so from my list, Saxo, who has offices in Zürich and Geneva, are technically Danish.

Sounds like a online gaming platform. But seriously the best way to double your money is to fold it in two and put it in your pocket.

Training is very important in any business venture because, to a large extent, it determines whether the business will experience success or failure. When talking about training, it is also vital that we know who can give training or be in the best position to provide the necessary tools and the training we need per each occasion. The best way to choose who to train with; is to access and evaluate the results of the training institution or trader trainer. Foreign exchange training helps traders to assess when to open a position on a given currency pair based on the direction it is heading and also be able to adequately forecast its direction for the near future. Experience and training are key factors to achieve success in foreign exchange trading. Continuous learning enables traders to stay updated and be profitable in the business, you can use beginners guide to trading.

In reference brokers, just check and consider its regulation and you can use to ECN broker
How the hell does FX trading or any OTC trading equate to a serious business venture?? It's glorified gambling, and like with gambling, the house always wins!
