Over the past few decades, Forex trading has grown to be one of the most common online businesses. It is very rare these days to scroll through Google pages, Instagram, and Facebook without meeting the term ‘Forex Trading’. The business itself looks profitable, but it’s a space you’d like to conduct adequate background research. In this article, I am going to give you a step-by-step guide on how to open a real forex account with Deriv. I intend to also give you an insight on how to fund and withdraw funds from your Deriv wallet.
If you are aspiring to enter into the Forex business, a quick piece of advice to you would be, never put in more money than you are willing to lose. It’s okay to take risk but your risks should be worthwhile. Social media ads only paint Forex trading to be a very lucrative business while hiding the fact that people also lose in Forex trading. However, the secret is to start with a demo account while picking up the skills to trade bigger.

Forex trading is profitable, but your profitability will depends on your skills set and how you are able to utilize this skills in real market environment. I have friends who struggle in the market for over 2 years before they were able to develop skills that help them to recover back all they lose in the market.
