    I have traded stocks for a few years.
    I am considering trading forex through IB, never traded it before, will paper trade for a bit.

    I would be grateful for any advice and/or experiences trading forex through IB.

    What might be the advantages / disadvantages such as margin ( it is 40:1 by the looks of it), working hours, anything else.

    For instance I can see that as I write this and watch EUR.USD the last price is marked as the closing price C1.41.
    But I thought that forex is open 24/7, so what is with the closing price?

    I can see that IDEALPRO is the exchange used.

    Thanks in advance.

And they have become the best money making tool. Therefore, one who is a forex trader should go through websites : so that he/she can know the tricks for this from this site.
  3. I dare to say don’t trade paper, go on line because it is the best way you can do it, you have instant execution a back office support too. Maybe you can take a look at my broker Tradeview and if you have doubts you can ask them.
