I have been playing around in the fantasy forex trading market using several "platforms". Although im not paying for them as they are trials usually offered for one month they are quite interesting. I have used several platforms, in their trials they work with real figures i.e actual market rates but you play with fake money so it a learning experience, initially i did'nt know the ropes and I was just testing it so I lost a whole lot of money - well nothing to worry about as it was just fake money, then I started reading up on the subject and in fact learned some tips and triks, i subscribed to newsletters and tip sheets they were a lot of help and i finally started making some money - again nothing to be too happy about as it was fake money. I'm thinking of opening a real account with $ 500 or something. I like dealbook by GFT (global forex trading) so i think i'll open an account with them. What I'm not sure about is when i go to pakistan will the software work there on the slow internet speeds as its real time updated every 2 secs. If its not fast enough you can loose a whole lot of money in the forex market. Any one in pakistan doing live forex trading let me know how it worls there.
