How to use a Forex account

Today, opening a Forex account is almost as easy as opening a bank account. First, of course, you need to find a Forex broker (list above). All Forex retail trading goes through and is managed by a broker. Some may be specialist Forex brokers, or they may be the same brokerage firm you use for stock market investing and trading.

You will need to complete a short questionnaire about your financial knowledge and trading intentions. You will also need to provide an ID and the minimum deposit required by your Forex account institution. That’s all. Now you are free to trade.

By the way, many forex brokers will take your credit or debit card instead of cash. So you really don’t need to deposit any money at all – not that this is a good idea. If you don’t have the cash now, how will you pay for losses later? Credit card debt carries a high interest rate.

Typical requirements to get started

The first thing you do is set up an account with a Forex broker. To set up your account, you will need to provide a lot of personal information, including the following:

  •     Name
  •     Address
  •     Email
  •     Phone number
  •     Currency type of the account
  •     A password for your trading account
  •     Date of birth
  •     Country of citizenship
  •     National insurance number or tax ID
  •     Employment status

You will also need to answer some financial questions, such as

  •     Annual income
  •     Net worth
  •     Trading experience
  •     Trading goals

Security and verification

You may wonder why forex brokers want to know all this information. The simple answer is to abide by the law. Forex has been something of a wild west industry since its introduction to retail some time ago. As a result, regulations have been put in place to provide account holders with some protection from various types of harm.

It is unlikely that you will find a broker willing to open your trading account without having to answer these questions. If you happen to find one that does not ask many questions, you should be suspicious. If you ever feel suspicious of a particular broker, you can look them up through various regulatory registers to find out their status.

What to look for in a forex account:

Open a Forex account only with a regulated provider. The verification for this is quite simple. A regulated broker must state the licence on the website. 90% of brokers also advertise that they are regulated, as it exudes respectability. Popular regulations and locations for Forex brokers are FCA (UK), CySEC (Cyprus), BaFin (Germany) or ASIC (Australia). Forex brokers without regulation are not trustworthy from my experience. Protect yourself from fraud!


How secure is the Forex account? – Regulated brokers must manage client funds in segregated bank accounts. This is considered very safe. In addition, the provider is not allowed to speculate or hedge with client funds. Many Forex accounts also offer additional protection features such as 2-factor authentication or SMS code verification.


Are there hidden fees with the Forex account? – Check the fee structure of the Forex account. Some providers charge hidden fees. All providers on this website do not charge account maintenance fees and account opening is free.

Trading fees should also be low. In my comparison you will find the cheapest providers.

Trading platform

What forex trading platform is offered and what features do they offer? – Fortunately, nowadays most Forex trading platforms are sophisticated and have enough tools in their portfolio. In my opinion, the most suitable one for Forex trading is Metatrader. You can to check it. This software is available for every device, supports automated trading, social trading, indicators and many chart functions.

Shri Manik Prabhu Maharaj

Shri Sadguru Manik Prabhu Maharaj was a great saint and yogi who walked the earth in the early nineteenth century to restore love and humanity lurking in the doldrums and to liberate religion from the confines of narrow dogmatism. Regarded as an incarnation of Bhagwan Shri Dattatreya, Shri Prabhu was a philosopher par excellence and a great thinker who lived and breathed his philosophy of SAKALAMATA SIDDHANT – the gospel of love, humanity, and oneness that firmly rests on the Upanishadic principles of
‘ekam sadvipra bahudha vadanti‘, while teaching it to others. A poet-saint that he was, his innumerable compositions in Marathi, Hindi, Urdu, Kannada, and Sanskrit, which, apart from being literary masterpieces in themselves, are divine hymns that proclaim the essential oneness of the ultimate reality, not to mention their inherent musical brilliance. Shri Prabhu attained Sanjivani Maha-Samadhi at Maniknagar in the year 1865. The institution founded by Shri Prabhu in the year 1845 for the propagation of his teachings is today known as Shri Manik Prabhu Samsthan and is among the important spiritual organisations of the country. The Samsthan is presently headed by His Holiness Shri Dnyanraj Manik Prabhu Maharaj, the present Peethadhipati in the illustrious Guru-Parampara.
