Most forex brokers offer a wide range of leverage options, but you should avoid brokers with higher leverage than 300:1. Also pay close attention to spreads of forex brokers.

The spreads are calculated in pips and they allow brokers to earn money. You should choose forex brokers with lower spreads as it will save you money.

Thread carefully in forex market and always invest only what you can afford to lose. Also avoid using high leverage, especially in the beginning. Small leverage (up to 10:1) won’t bring you much profit, but it will also prevent you from losing much money. When you become better in trading you can trade with higher leverage, but even then, you should never go beyond 100:1. Greed is one of the main downfalls in forex trading. Better slow profit than a quick loss.
