Good evening to anyone. Another newbie here going through Babypips, Lehman pdf, and several books recommended in the FAQ of the Forex Reddit. I am particularly happy about entering this amazing world, as i have always been very interested in both finance and economics. I would like to know if you would recommend any particular broker for a demo account/ for beginners? I would like to start "playing" a little bit with everything I have theoretically learned in the last weeks. Hope to keep you seeing all here. Luck and money to all!
Risk:Reward strategies: A follow up question/ Looking for opinions on this idea
This is a follow up post from my last one yesterday here : https://www.reddit.com/Forex/comments/i4veq6/best_riskreward_ratios_for_trend_trading_exit/ I was talking about what everyone's best/ optimal R:R exit strategies are and how/why people use them. After looking at the posts and ideas that a few people shared I had an idea, and I thought I'd share the idea to see if it's one worth considering seriously. going 1:1 has less DD (on my own strategy backtest) than going 2:1 (makes sense). If I start an account with a prop fund and they have a DD limit (10%), would it be best to start trading using 1:1 to grow the account slowly with less risk of breaking the rules, and then go 2:1 when there is more capital that can be afforded to be lost (so the eventual win streak can come along and I can make more of that % gain baby) Does this idea sound rational or stupid? Forex Reddit do your magic and castrate me or praise me for the idea cos I wanna know what you think.
I've been using the Forex demo account to try and understand how to trade. I've been practicing in the demo account for 2 weeks with a strategy I now understand is called 'scalp trading' and got lucky with 2K in a 48 hour span which as I've seen while watching the Forex reddit forum, is still pretty low for most users. Without disclosing strategies that you would use, where would be a good example to break into the market? I've started to find where trend lines are after watching a couple people watch trends tracing back from 1 month, down to the 1 hour mark and then they trade long from there. I don't expect there to be a ton of activity with a brand new account but the adrenaline rush of trading and coming out even 10 cents ahead is amazing. The other thing I've been working to try and understand is reading a candlestick chart to see where I can pick up on a break to start a trade. Getting burned a couple times today hasn't made me want to quit, just learn what I did wrong so I can improve!
All right, I've read multiple guides/sites/forum posts on this topic, and I'm still flummoxed. So I ask you, Forex reddit: How do you read the ATR indicator? For example: I'm looking at a pair with an ATR(20) of 1.2889. I want to use the ATR*1.5 method to set my stop loss. Of those five digits, which do I actually multiply to get the SL? The answer seems simple enough for pairs with an ATR of something like 0.0045; that's just 45 pips. But I'm lost when it comes to values bigger than that, because I can't imagine a trade with a SL of, say, 4333 pips (to use my ATR(20) example), especially if I'm scaling out and intend to enter three positions. I realize this is the most absolute of absolute rookie questions, but in all my months of doing this I've never been able to figure it out. I appreciate your help!

Reddit as we know is hugely popular and forex isn't exactly a niche area... Look at how crazy active things like crypto are, weedstocks, wallstreetbets etc. When I first typed in "forex reddit" and found this sub reddit I was expecting at least 100k subscribers and everyone posting their trade ideas, setups and general market talk but this doesn't really happen here, any ideas why not? There's another place I found called forex factory which is an old school forum and it's pretty active in selective areas like trade discussion but the forum looks horrible. I wonder why /forex is so quite 🙁

Hello guys, please spare me 5 mins to read my post. Just a newbie needing advice. Sorry if i took up your time. So basically i started trading Forex since April 2017. Where im from, its a very mundane country. Everyone focuses on their office 9-5 job and go back home for dinner and sleep, therefore only (im guessing) 5% of the population here does Forex. Those who 'teach' Forex charge ludicrous price (4-5k USD) which i dont have the privilege of paying. When i first started, all i can learn was TA, since it isnt as broad as FA, and i've been doing well, every month's been profitable since April relying solely on TA. When i first started, i wasn't in it for the money. The thought of predicting how a market will move based on fundamentals interests me, i want to learn how to be able to do FA, such as understanding how bonds work in Forex, predicting Monetary Policies/NFP and all that just by reading and analyzing Fundamentals. It isn't more of a 'i want to do FA just for the $' but more of a ' i'm really interested and i want to learn how it works'. But the thing is, Fundamentals cover such a BROAD area and i'm really lost as to where i should start learning and how i can continue. I go through Forex Reddit everyday before going to bed, hoping to connect the dots on a few posts (like how bonds affect Forex markets, how people are able to predict the outcome of a news etc, safe havens and all) but all i end up is being jealous and amazed at how people can analyse Fundamentals till that extent, i really want to do that too. With that being said, can anyone point me in the right direction/provide learning materials of where i should start learning Fundamentals, i'm really stuck because Fundamentals in itself is so broad and i don't know where to start. Thanks for taking the time to read through my post.
