icmarkets forex tutorial in English Sri Lanka by Prathilaba

How to trade forex in ICMarkets and make a  full time or par-time earn money online opportunity !

You can trade forex with ICmarkets.com . It is an Australia based regulated and licensed ECN broker providing trading services since 2007. The spreads are low and they offer one of the easiest to use trading platforms called ctrader ( you will love it as almost all calculations are done automatically in ctrader ). You get a free demo account and very useful trading tutorials too. Once you are successful in demo account, you can start live trading with a minimum deposit of $200.

You can make this a lucrative earn money online full time or part-time method but you should understand that trading carries very high risk too. So read the whole article first, practice and then you can consider trading online. If you come across anything that is not clear, you  can comment on the site or send an email ( but you can find all the necessary information within website ).

What is forex and how to make money online with Forex Trading ?

It is the world's biggest currency trading market but individual traders like us can trade only via a broker that will link us to the main market.  So basically what we will have to do is choose a currency pair ( eg Eur/USD ) then decide if the price goes up or down. Time is not a fix thing here like in Options. You can close the trade at anytime as long as you have funds to cover the trade. If your assumption is correct, you will get profits. If your assumption is wrong, it will result in a loss but you can minimize the loss by using Stop Loss values when placing trades and having enough capital in the account to accommodate the heavy fluctuation in the market.
