Forex trading is one of the more popular things among people who want to make big money in a year or two. And because you've been changing money and focusing on news and speculation, you may spend a lot of time getting people started using software that helps people trade Forex.
There are many online software trading platforms that can match different people, one for experts and the other for beginners. Before entering the foreign exchange market, the important thing or at least one very good thing is to be familiar with the platform [software] you will use. Since you are not allowed to make mistakes and cause damage, you should first try the demo version of the platform [if available] or see the full system your friends are using. From the experience of people who know the best platform, it is Meta Trader4. The reason people like it is because it uses a simple and usable demo platform version. Others starting with a platform called VT Trader said that it took a lot of time to complete all the options, but once they found everything, they had no problems and preferred it more than Meta Trader 4.
After all, all the platforms or software you use are not as important as the currency that can be exchanged for currency. Find the right platform for you and good luck.
