Trading has many underlying risks

What you see on the online resources and websites are not true at all. They only advertise what is good and most of the time skip the reality. It is in their nature because they know people will not invest if they became aware of these risks. The best choice is to advertise by hiding these underlying risks.

When brokers advertise in their page, they highlight the benefit of using the leverage that will allow you to big place trades. Little they will focus what impacts it is going to have on your account when you lost your trades.

Do not expect you will start making money as soon as you deposit your first amount. It takes months to understand the basic concepts and you learn through losing money.
