Over time they'd see how their trading improves.Building a strong foundation as a Forex trader is the key to long-term success. After all, you have to learn how to crawl before you can walk. This is an important section to understand Forex basics because I find that many retail traders forget that we are but a flea on an elephant’s behind when it comes to the scale of the Forex market. The big boys we’re about to discuss are the real “market movers” when it comes to the Forex market.
