Learning Forex needs determination for a better understanding. Read about Forex before you enter a trade. Open a demo account with a reputable Forex Broker where you can gain experience of trading just like in the live account using virtual money only. Once you have perfect your trading style and have discipline in trading, you can now go in the real market where you can apply all the things you've learned in the demo account.

in fact this site (ForexAbode) also has some great learning material on technical, fundamental and psychological sections. I am not sure why they are not promoting it as I found it better than many other resources.

Forex trading can be done by opening a trading account with any of the Forex brokers. Many big companies like Geojit etc are offering this facility.
You are looking to transfer money to a foreign bank. This depends on the bank with which you have opened the account. Wired transfer facility can be used to do this. You can specify the account to which you want to transfer the amount. Bank will charge a nominal amount to transfer your amount. :oops:

If you are just starting out on your forex journey I would suggest you read "The Complete Turtle Trader" by Michael Covel. The introductory slideshows on Slideshare are also a great resource. Once you have the basic understanding you can learn strategies at sites such as such Everestforex (great site, very friendly, gives you $100 real money to start with). And of course stay up to date at!

When it comes to Forex trading, there are two markets that you can trade money in: major and minor markets. Major markets are the major countries’ currencies, and include currencies such as US Dollars and Euros. Minor markets can be distinguished as second world countries’ currencies, and include currencies such as the Korean Won and New Taiwan Dollar. :oops: :roll:

Being a newbie, your first approach should be to watch and judge the forex market and learn from other forex marketer doing business here. This will save you from the real traders aggressively participating in the market, but always make sure that you are well efficient in the usage of such systems.

I'm sorry but i think i must repeat my other post:

I think to start you should make several steps:
- Learn forex basics (what is spread, leverage, swap, etc)
- Try terminal (better to start with MT4), try it on demo
- Try to develop your own trading strategy, and use it on demo.
- After you will see first systematic profits, look for reliable broker (look rankings, for example
- Start your live trading (
- Don't forget continue to learn theory, improve your strategy, try to cope with EA (bot,robot) for example on MQL
- Practice and increase your profits (don't forget to diarize your trading)
