Hello! I’m new to this site (and forex in general) and only in 4th grade here at the babypips school (THANKS so much for the existance of this site, BTW!).
I bought & read the “Complete Idiots” book about forex, which was written by the founder of GFT. Basicly what I learned from this book is that I need to learn WAY more than what’s in it! It was a good introduction, tho.
Yesterday I signed up for a demo account with GFT. This morning I got a phone call from them and had to explain over and over that NO, I do not want to open a funded account at this time- just the demo! No matter how many times and ways I said it, the guy kept saying that I should go ahead and open an account (not actually using it until I’m ready) so I can recieve training from him. This went on for nearly 10 minutes!
I don’t know a lot about forex yet, but I DO know that I should try several platforms/demo accounts before I decide where to put my real money. Am I going to get this sales pitch every time I open a demo account with someone?
Any suggestions for which company’s platforms/demos I should try? I’m in the US, and I’m thinking it would be safer to stick with US-based companies…
Thanks in advance for any advice!
Oh, and I STILL haven’t received a password for the demo account, even though the guy confirmed my email address on the phone. That alone makes me leery about how they treat their customers…
