FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between a demo and live trading account?

The primary difference is that here is no capital at risk when trading in a demo account. An Internationalt Trading School demo account features real-time quotes and charts, along with all the basic trading tools and much of the information you'll have access to as an International Trading School customer, including single and contingent order types, a real-time newsfeed, up to the minute market commentary, daily and weekly research, and more. Results achieved on the demo account are hypothetical and no representation is made that any account will or is likely to achieve actual profits or losses similar to those achieved in the demo account. Conditions in the demo account cannot always reasonably reflect all of the market conditions that may affect pricing and execution in a live trading environment.

When you open a live, funded account, you'll have broader access to exclusive content generated daily by our senior traders and research team, as well as access to advanced charting packages provided by International Trading School with Forex.com and third party providers.

Can I work as a trader even if i don't have any prior knowledge or experience in the field?

As with any other work, to be successful you have to grasp the theory and the practice. With trading, the practice is by far more important, because you cannot learn trading from books. It is important to understand that you can't become a trader overnight, rather you have expect to invest at the least three to twelve months in your education. For those people who don't consider knowledge and hard work as a pre-requirement for the commencement of this profession, trading can become the fastest road to a total loss of investments as well as self-confidence However, if you become persistent in this field of work, trading can become one of the most wonderful things that can happen in your life and can enable you to make even your biggest financial goals come true. One example is Mr Soros who has earned the most of his wealth through FOREX trading.


Can this be my additional job?

Yes, absolutely. Engaging in trading from time to time for a few hours each day is also possible and can be very profitable. To become a successful „part time“ trader you have to engage in at least three to four hours each day. It is very important to understand that the approach to this job is in no way less serious if you work for less than the specified time each day, it is only catered to the strategies and time in which you work.


How much money do I need to get started in this field?

For someone to start working in this business he/she should plan to have enough money to cover their schooling and life expenses for four months. If a person starts off with a prejudice that they will overnight begin to make a profit and that all they need is a few weeks to be a successful trader, they are wrong. When a trader is under pressure he is stressed, nervous and impatient and rarely makes the correct decisions, which usually means a lot of problems. Another thing which must be taken into consideration for those people who are starting to trade with their own money is that they should trade the amount of money they can handle losing – and that it won't represent a very serious problem in their lives. That is the only way to be competitive with successful traders who enter each trade without fear, precisely due to the fact because they have pre-planned, regardless of whether he is successful or not.


How old do I have to be to be able to work in this field?

There is a great misconception regarding the age which someone can engage in trading in the stock exchange. Most people think that people who are in this business are those between the ages of 20 and 30. It is important that you understand that every person between the ages of 18 to 70 and even older can engage in this business, everyone who is able to adequately answer the demands as set by their strategy of trading. In the stock exchange there are strategies which demand everyday attention and those for which only a few hours weekly or monthly are needed. In any case it is important for you to understand that success in trading doesn't equate to your age, rather the synchronization of your strategy with your abilities, wishes and possibilities. 

What are the risks in this business?

The risks in this business are precisely that that you may not be strong enough to persist and change your self-destructive tendencies and adopt those which make you successful. With that comes everything else you run the risk of, including time and money which you can lose during the process. The risks in this business are determined by your strategy of trading and if you don't want to expose yourselves to huge risks you won't have them.


Is this a stressful job and will it affect my family life?

Every job in where you are "navigating blind" and without a business plan presents extreme stress. That is the characteristic of gambling and everyone who in this way engages in trading exposes themselves to losing his/her money and family. A characteristic of every successful trader is that he is always aware of the risk and potential loss of his position and that is the only thing which he can and must plan and control. An analogy is that it's like your monthly expense for your insurance policy. If you plan to have a loss which is within your budget, then there is no stress, only the execution of your business plan. It is up to you to become a good trader and recognize in your business plan situations in which you need to invest your money and those when you need to hold back, because a potential profit cannot justify a potential loss. As you know, without risk there is no profit, and it is up to you to manage these things according to your liking.
In any case, trading can be a pleasant job if you make your trading business plan while you are cool-headed and before you start to trade, so that trading is simply an execution of your business plan where there are no big surprises or stress.

Forex trading can involve the risk of loss beyond your initial deposit. It is not suitable for all investors and you should make sure you understand the risks involved, seeking independent advice if necessary.
