    Hello everyone, I'm new to forex, so my question is: is forex open on the weekends? It seems that when I log on to fxcm, the server isn't open.
  2. Yes it is, but the spreads are quite wide. Oanda is 10 pips on EUR/USD on the weekends.

    okay thanks, another question is which forex broker has the lowest spreads?
  4. Oanda and IB. Could be others, but those are the two I am familiar with.

    Any other questions? Keem em comming :)

    are there any books or websites to read with information to help a new forex trader learn about the market?

    Such as how to use technical anlysis and what values to input on the indicators?

    For example when I try to use MCAD, I get confused by what value to input into the box.

    okay, last question, do you think oanda is better than fxcm for forex?
  7. lol well of course :)

    In all honesty though, it really all depends on what you like. FXCM from what I understand is quite good, but I have never liked it for my own personal reasons.

    Both are great brokers, so just try out the demo and see what you like.

    thanks for the replies! :D
  9. Trade forex futures not spot, or at least educate yourself about it.
