If you, like me, are new to Forex trading, chances are that you were drawn in by some of the aggressive Forex marketing schemes used by Forex brokers and service providers on the Web. These brokers spends millions of Dollars trying to create the illusion that Forex trading is a quick road to riches, and that if you trade with their brokerage, you will make millions in no time.
This is of course, not the case, but it can be. As you probably know, if you have any life experience at all, nothing in life is free. The same is true for Forex. There is money to be made, but it won’t come unless you spend the time and effort learning how to master the Forex market.
There are of course many ways to do this (did you really think it would be easy?). You can spend months and months reading online and offline articles, you can and should learn all you can from the experts out there, but there is now a new resource available to you that was not in existence just one year ago.
It is no secret that the new trends on the Web are all about social media, community, and communication. Well, that trend is making its way to Forex as well. While the various social networks have not yet taken off in the Forex world and the average Twitter user for example, still associates Forex with spam, Forex community sites are now popping up all over the Web.
Why are these sites important? Well, while all the above methods are effective when learning Forex, nothing beats learning from other people’s mistakes or smart decisions. The ability to communicate in real time with other traders, see what they are doing, what currencies they are buying, and if they are succeeding is a crucial and highly effective resource for the new and experienced trader.
I have been checking out Currensee for a few weeks now, and let me tell you, I am impressed. This is just one example of course, but I think, based on the number of traders they claim to have, it is the leading Forex “social” platform/network on the Web today.
Whether you use Currensee or a different site, the important thing is the principle. You are not alone and there is no reason you should not take full advantage of that fact and benefit from your surroundings.
