Spreads and Commission rates can make or break a day trader Even if a trader is able to beat the market and capture a profit, to be successful, the profit must exceed the cost of commissions. And for a high-volume trader, commissions can easily run into hundreds or thousands of dollars a day. You can check with the brokerage firm what their commission rates are by contacting them or they may publish the rates on their website. Often, firms will reward traders who are highly active with progressively lower commission rates.
Books are useless! I only ever read one book, “To Kill A Mockingbird,” and it gave me absolutely no insight on how to kill mockingbirds! Sure it taught me not to judge a man by the color of his skin…but what good does *that* do me?

Logically speaking, it would be good to trade with brokers that are ‘on your side’ isn’t it? They want you to win and will support you in any way to win. Because when you win, they win too. This means they don’t play tricks on you, such as slippages, requotes, or delay your trade execution times.
MetaTrader 5 (MT5) – Like MT4, the MT5 platform sets the industry standard for a Forex Trading platform. It has the same functionality of MT4, but the difference in MT5 is that the tech savvy trader can benefit hugely here. MT5 includes the MT5 Strategy Tester which uses the MQL5 language to allow for enhanced EA optimization. This tool cuts the time it takes to test an EA by hours in some cases and by days in others. This is made possible through the use of the MQL5 Cloud Network, which allows you to trade an EA across thousands of computers. This service tends to be charged for, but it is a critical element for tech savvy traders. Don’t forget, Alpari doesn’t require you to choose either MT4 or MT5, you are allowed to have accounts on both platforms. One final feature is that MT5 is also available on both IOS and Android mobile devices.
