    I have never invested and want to learn. I never invested in stocks or mutual funds.

    I'm a recent college grad (2005) with a major in Poli Sci and minor in Economics (I prefer Macro to Micro-economics). Real Estate, the stock market---just about everything is going to crash soon. Meanwhile, Forex and Commodities seems to be the way to go.

    How do I get started learning? This is all totally new to me.

    Are there any books I should read or is there any course I should take? I just sat through a presentation from Market Traders and they want $5995 for their course. I've been there and done that with Real Estate (Foreclosures) etc. and these courses unfortunately have proven to be a waste of money.

    They lure you into paying for one class---then tell you that you really need more but it's going to cost you so much more...

    Hi,

    From one newbie to another, have a look at a few forex broker sites, and pick a few to try out demo accounts. Most do demo accounts that cost you nothing, so you can try out their software and forex trading in general.

    I started with forexclub's expressFX for it's simplicity, but then found that I needed something more to get a feel for trends and how to analyze the market.

    Good luck!
