  6. If you're wisely playing with Oanda demo, then XAG/USD (silver) and XAU/USD (gold) are an order of magnitude more volatile than any currency pair, while using up hardly any of your margin at entry, e.g., for the same % risk. (Between the two, silver being far more volatile than gold.) They are also capable of strong, lasting trends, as just about everyone knows by now.

    Among currencies, take a close look at GBP/JPY for a while. The benefit... once you do, you'll feel that, by comparison, GBP/USD moves in sloooow motion.

    You'll find many vols here.

    Stay with the most liquid currency pairs. Liquidity is a VERY important factor.

    Most Liquid in order of liquidity:


    All three of these give you plenty of trading opportunities.

    I trade using 30 min charts. My favorite times to trade are between 06:00 EST and 13:00EST.
