What about Demo Trading?
Many forex trading sites offer demo trading to get you started.
There is nothing wrong with this. The intention is to give you a chance to get to know how the site works. Every trading site has some symbols and indicators that are special to the site itself, and each site has a few idiosyncrasies, so working on the demo site for a bit helps you to get the basics down.
You should, however, be careful to not assume that trading on the demo site is in any way practice for trading with your own money. Why not? It is simply too easy to make dangerous decisions with symbolic money on a demo site that you would not (or, at least, should not) dare to make when trading with your own funds.
On a demo site, you just let a trade hang in there until it goes bad. You wouldn’t take such a risk if you knew it might cost you a great deal of cash.
Doing symbolic trading induces bad habits, and takes the emotional edge off trading. Don’t make the mistake of using it instead of the real thing. Real forex trading is very tough, and it’s just not the same when there is no risk.
