As per my previous post griping on the swaps, sure enough I have been dinged with swaps making my long entry that more of a pain. Forex brokers is good to learn and hone trading techniques, when you truly become a winning trader, a futures broker may have to be looked at. Get rid of the middle man! I will keep tossing money at my broker, even if I feel like my trades are being milked for mostly their gain. If you become successful trading through Forex brokers, you will be really success trading directly in the futures market. The great thing about Forex brokers, there is no shortage of them. Start out with a demo account, don't be pressured into real money deposits until you are satisfied the platform/service they provide is going to work for you. I won't comment on past and current forex brokers I have dealt with. Don't believe you need to deposit huge amounts, some have no minimums, others have a $200 USD starting balance.
