It's a big world

Hi people,
I guess I'm mostly human. I've enjoyed reading much of of what you guys are kindly putting out there.
I'm very new to Forex trading, in fact I'm very respectful and wary of it.
At the mo I trade with my bank I get a sort of ok deal but of course the trading window is banking hours consequently I'm not able to do many and the margins need to be pretty big.

What frieks me with all these slick on line brokers is they never actually seem to relate to any finacial instiution, dbfx possibly? I just can't get my head round having my money somewhere behind the laundry on the first floor infront of the post office, Mombai. Am I crazy? Well do any of you seasoned campaigners know of a middle way?I'm not big time just looking to dabble.
