Forex Brokers Guide

Forex Brokers for your trading location

One of the first things you will want to do is get a trading platform up and running so you can observe the markets and get accustomed to using the platforms. Here at Traders4Traders we use MetaTrader MT4 as our preferred platform. This is the most common trading platform and is used by millions of traders worldwide.

You should choose a broker that services your location on the globe.

*You should note we do not take a commission from any brokers. This is very common throughout the educational industry. We have decided to pass this offering from the broker onto you our clients that will come in the form of discounts and even paying for your monthly Traders4Traders fees. This is currently under negotiation.
