Good foreign exchange training is essential for beginners. Despite the advertisements, you cannot expect to set out with no experience or training and start making money right away. If you have some knowledge of stock trading or other similar speculative markets you will have a much shorter learning curve but there are still a few things specific to currency trading that you will need to know.

However, do not lose heart. There are plenty of good forex trading training courses out there and with a little investigation you can find the right one for you. There are just a few things that you need to keep in mind when you are looking.

1. Cost

While a lot of foreign exchange training is available for free simply by reading websites or downloading free ebooks, you are not necessarily going to find the best trading information that way. Most traders do not give away their secrets for free.

So although you may be able to cover the basics from free information, you must expect to pay something if you want to learn from the pros. The cost then can range for a few dollars for an ebook describing a successful trading system, to thousands of dollars to sign up with a mentor for private coaching or attend a series of seminars.

All we will say here is that if you are a complete beginner, it could be a waste of money to pay for top level training even if it is good, because you are probably not ready for it. Cover the basics more cheaply first.

2. Type of forex tutorial

Many people start with books and ebooks. This can be a great way to educate yourself. There are some differences between the two that you should be aware of. Printed books tend to be more general and more informative about the background and history of currency trading, while ebooks are usually shorter and often cover one particular trading system. You need both background knowledge and a profitable if you are actually going to trade.

Of course, ebooks also have the advantage of being instantly downloadable. Sometimes they will come with a video forex tutorial which can be very valuable indeed. Instead of just reading about the author’s trading system you can actually watch as he implements it on his computer. You see exactly where to click and everything is much easier to follow. So if you are considering buying a forex ebook, check to see whether videos are included.

When you buy an ebook you will also usually have a method of getting support from the author or his team. This does not come with a printed book and it is essential if there is something that you do not understand. This can also, occasionally, lead on to a mentoring or other relationship that could be very valuable to you in the future.

So do not be surprised that ebooks are usually more expensive than printed books. They contain a lot of hidden value. What you need when you are starting out with foreign exchange training is a practical forex tutorial, and you are much more likely to get this from a forex ebook with videos than any printed book.
