I recently set up a Mini Demo Account with 4X Made Easy. To put it mildly, I’m completely fascinated (obsessed may be a better word). The platform is called FX Trading Station and was extremely easy to learn to use. The ability to open an account with as little as $300 seems compelling, however, I have some reservations about this company.
I also took a look at the Visual Trading Platform demo from CMS. It is much more complicated and frankly, a bit over my head at this point.
A search of the web left me overwhelmed with information and services from the companies themselves, yet I was able to find little info from independent sources.
Can any of you point me to FREE resources that could help a clueless newbie like myself to learn more about the market and available trading platforms? I would also like anecdotal information about experiences any of you may have had with various trading platforms.
There must be a site out there somewhere with reliable user reviews and recommendations (sort of like a CNET for traders) which could help me to choose a platform etc. to try for real.
Any info you could share would be most helpful.
