To earn on Forex, you need to track the market 24 hours a day, without wasting time on food and sleep?
No one is following the market all the time. Each trader chooses his own hours of work convenient for him and trades when he sees an opportunity for this. Of course, at a time when a trader is resting or busy with another business, he misses a lot of profitable trades. But you can not earn all the money, but nobody sets such goals. In addition, all people are different: some spend on trade 2 hours a day, while others spend at the monitor every free minute. It is important to understand that even an experienced specialist can not at any time accurately predict where the price will go. The task of a skilled and successful trader is to choose for trades only those moments when the movement of the currency is predictably good.
Is it true that the real success in Forex is a kind of closed book that no one saw, and if you saw and read, it will not show?

However, as you know, money likes silence, and therefore not every trader will tell the first one about his successes. Someone is afraid of "jinxing", causing jealousy, and the other does not want to spray their strength on unnecessary chatter. As for the results of trading on specific accounts, then, of course, this information is confidential.
Who is the author of textbooks and other books on Forex - non-practicing theorists and analysts?

If someone offers their trading tips on Forex for money, is he just a theoretical analyst without practical experience?
People who offer their services privately can be guided by different motives. Among them there are both professionals with a good reputation, as well as pure theorists who do not have practical experience, and even simple adventurers.

Anyone can trade on Forex, because you can start trading by having a relatively small amount of money.
Nevertheless, in order to understand the logic of currency movements on Forex and find patterns, it is necessary to study the mechanisms for making daily trading decisions in the largest financial organizations of the world. After all, they sell and buy the largest lots of currency, which means that their decisions are driving the market.
Is it true that the lower the spread, the more favorable the terms of trade?
No. Spread - not the most important thing in terms of trade. Why?
First, the company's announcement of very low or almost zero spreads is usually the usual marketing ploy to attract customers. At the same time, in the conditions of trade, imperceptible reservations are always made about the possibility of widening the spread with faster price movements. In practice, this means that a low spread is provided in individual real transactions, but for the most part this spread is retained only in indicative quotes available for general review and on demo accounts. In many cases, at the conclusion of a specific transaction, a client may be offered a much higher spread. Or the quotation is elementary shifted to the disadvantageous for the client side, especially when the transaction is closed. This is understandable, because spreads are the main source of income for a dealing company,
Second, populist statements about practically zero spreads, as well as other unrealistic conditions for the market, are often resorted to by newly formed companies that are only looking for their niche in financial services. If the company really starts to fulfill its promises, in any case it is a short-sighted policy. And it necessarily involves high risks for such a company and for its customers, and therefore is incompatible with long-term financial stability, stable revenues of the company itself, and therefore with reliable bank guarantees for the safety of your deposits and your profits.
And the last thing: very often for the conclusion of the most profitable transaction it is much more important to have a timely and accurate service, which allows you to promptly receive a quote that suits the customer when the price changes quickly. And if in the conditions of trade there is a very low spread, then it is impossible for the company to quickly make a deal on the market at this price.
