Before you become a trader or try to become a trader, keep your learning aspects open. You would need a deep research and basic training to understand the basics of trading.

Hi everyone,

I am new with all the trading, trying to be a part time trader and make a few 2 digits bucks a day and hopefully can became a full trader someday.
I've been demo account since Nov 2020 by using official MT4 demo account mostly trading XAU/USD. I think I should use the broker demo so I can see how everything really works and get use to it.

I'm looking for a broker that will accept US clients and I read online from stockbrokers.com and some other website IG,Etoro and Forex.com is the top and Forex is the only one that have MT4 planform so I opened 1 demo account with Forex.com like 2 weeks ago and Ive been testing it, so far its alright but didnt like how the leverage is 1:50 and for trading metal leverage is 1:1 but read in the US 1:50 is max I just have to get used to it and forget about trading Mental since its 1:1 and just focus on Forex market instead.

I read lots of reviews and scams that you could deposit but good luck with withdraw money, so I think I should stick with a well known company in the US cuz there is no point even I make 100K profit and cant withdraw. I think I will stick with Forex.com even tho I think its ok. I came here read some reviews see do I have other options and found out that Forex.com wasnt that great.
I start reading on the reviews looking for the highly good one but sadly they dont accept US clients like IC markets.com

So my question is here for the US trader what broker do you use? I prefer using MT4 and be able to trade metal but if I have to start using a new planform and no metal I will learn to get used to it.

Thanks and happy trading everyone!
FXCM, Hotforex, Oanda are great choices. However spend enough time to learn the types of accounts they offer and which one fits best your trading demands.

Hi Tyler, Welcome to the forum. Unfortunately I cannot be of help with regards to the brokers available in the US. Hopefully someone will come through for you with some options. I would like to put it out there that I don't think you always need to be with a regulated broker. I have used an unregulated broker for the last 12 months and haven't had any issues. It's all about researching those reviews.

Become trader as a dream to become rich from forex industry, but this profession is no easy task, making profit consistent through forex is like as resolved a puzzle, sometimes you get it easy and sometimes so hard, but if you have good skill, it will get more easiness than difficulties

I use mt4 too I think that’s one of the best trading platforms available, as for a broker just go with what appeals to you the most just make sure they are reliable.

Agreed, practice and experience are two things that constitutes trading knowledge and skill. Mistakes that you made in trade is the knowledge that you can't find in books. One should give it his 100% as far as hard work and practice are concerned, take this field seriously and not just a hobby, only then consistent returns can be expected.
