There are special organizations that brokers who provide them the opportunity to take part in the stock exchange. It provides you with a trading terminal program to work on the stock exchange, keeps the accounts, and reduces income tax. You pay the broker a Commission, a small share of turnover.

As the Commission is taken from your turnover, its size will affect the price of the transaction. A smaller Board allows you to play short trades, thus providing more opportunities to increase profits.

But for a beginner this is the preferred tactic. When trading you should consider that price no one really knows for sure, unless of course, you are the Minister of Finance. Therefore it is necessary to proceed from the current situation, it is advisable not to trade against the market, i.e. if the securities fall, they should not "pick up" until they fall to the "bottom".
Follow the loss. Since you are just starting Forex trading, it is particularly important that you still will be difficult psychologically to realize losses. Buying stocks, are you waiting for profits, and if the trend moved in your direction, can hard not to close an unprofitable position, thus stupidly to observe increasing losses that destroy your account. In order to avoid such a scenario, one should consider the price level where the position has to be closed in the case when the price against you. Use stop loss (loss limitation) in the terminal. The position in this case will be closed automatically when the price reaches the level specified in the application. Losses should be cut ruthlessly.
