Make sure that you are successful with your demo trading for a long period of time until you are certain that your system works and you will be able to be profitable.

Forex stands for foreign exchange market and Forex is the market that you go to when you would like to exchange and buy and sell currencies. Forex is the largest financial market in the world with almost 2 trillion dollars in trades each day.
