How much is actually costs we should spend in order to trade? Well, it does … most of my friend traders assume that trading costs are zero. If there is a charge, it could be categorized as “entertainment expenses”. For traders who consider forex trading as a hobby, that may be incurred for to trade tend to be ignored.
But, if you’re serious about making or at least consider forex trading as a business, it helps you to know the costs of what we have to “spend” for this trading activity. Costs associated with the broker. The first group of costs that we must bear the costs associated with the broker, such as commissions (if the broker through which we enact the commission system), spread, slippage and cost burden trading platform (if any). Most brokers do not charge a fee for the trading platform and also does not impose a commission system. At most, we bear the cost of the spread, because the broker is taking advantage of this spread, the difference between bid and offer prices. While the slippage could be categorized as a “cost” if the price at the time we entered the market is moving so fast that when we do order price is different from the time of order execution.
Costs associated with infrastructure. Another cost is the cost we should spend for trading facilities such as a PC or other gadgets as well as internet connection. Well, for most traders, the cost is considered to not exist, or can also say the cost of the entertainment was. The reason, if not to trade, yet we still need a PC and internet connection suggestions for other things. Yes it’s known in today, most people do not get away from gadgets and the internet. So if not for the trade, they still need this facility to life with “normal”.
