Big US Dollar moves against the Euro and other currencies have made forex trading more popular than ever, but the influx of new traders has been matched by an outflow of existing traders.
Why do major currency moves bring increased trader losses? To find out, the DailyFX research team has looked through amalgamated trading data on thousands of FXCM live accounts. In this article, we look at the biggest mistake that forex traders make, and a way to trade appropriately.
What is the Margin?
The margin can vary greatly depending on the Forex broker you choose. You will need to find out what the margin requirements are and whether these requirements are the same for each currency pair or each pair has its own set requirements.
