How to choose a Forex broker - 5 things above all

What's most important when deciding between Broker #1 and Broker #2?
Leverage? Spreads? Trading platforms or ability to use automated systems? No.
There are more important factors which decide if your trading experience is going to be successful at all:

1. Withdrawals, withdrawals, withdrawals!
Nothing is more important than flawless withdrawals.
If a broker doesn't offer speedy honest withdrawals - there is nothing to talk about. Anything you deposit with a broker is at risk of never being returned again.

2. Recognition of your earned profits
It's important that your profits are recognized & payed out to you.
If a broker doesn't recognize your profits, and instead, on the first withdrawal request sends you a letter explaining "why your profits are not valid" - that's totally wrong & often suggests that a broker isn't going to pay you anything at all, you've wasted your time trading there.

3. Honoring your trades
It's important that your trades are being honored.
If your trades entirely disappear from the history book, are being cancelled or in any other way edited without your participation - your brokers is carrying out a dishonest business. This broker won't let you profit in the long run.

4. Respecting your trading style
It's important that a broker respects your trading style: be it scalping, grid trading, hedging, using EAs, trading news, long term trading etc. You should always try to receive a clear answer/confirmation from the broker that your trading style is fully accepted and allowed.

5. Transparency of broker's trading policy
There is nothing simpler than following a clear trading policy. Unfortunately, not all brokers explain trading rules in a transparent and user-friendly way.
If you can't find all necessary information in the trading agreement & can't get a clear answer from the broker of your choice, think twice about doing business with this company; you're risking to encounter problems listed in P. 1-4 above.

Forex Social Trading | Forex Social Networks

Forex social trading networks - what are they?

The general purpose of a Forex Social Trading Network is to gather collective wisdom about Forex trading; and in order to do that, Social Trading allows each member to post his/her trading activity on the network (such as Buy/Sell/Stop/Exit orders etc.). Thus each member can become a signal provider, while other members can "follow" him/her just like in Twitter, but with an extra feature - the ability to copy everything that the signal provider does on your own account - immediately and automatically. Besides Forex Social Trading networks offer some other useful information to traders, such as: pip counters, calculators, chart analysis tools, and even own trading platforms.

The idea of Forex Social Networks initially was to help out beginner traders and those who haven't yet developed good trading skills, also to aid investors who don't know/want to learn how to trade at all, or have no time to analyze the market; while on the contrary, it's also useful for experienced traders who want to monitor the market sentiment and utilize the knowledge for own more complex strategies. Overall, Social Trading could be useful for everyone in one or another way.
