If you are a new one in this kind of business, please, do not start trading on the FOREX market. It is considered to be the most profitable market being the most risky one. This is the reason why the non-experienced one start to trade there and lose all the money. The margin is bigger, the volatility - higher. At the same time, the predictability is on the relatively low level as it is quite difficult to conduct a market flow forecast.
The stocks and raw materials market is one of the best options to start trading on the Stock Exchange as it presupposes stable margins and market's predictability. It is quite easy to trace the price flow with the help of the breaking news (fundamental analysis) and graphs (technical analysis).
