A golden mistake

There are lots of sites out there like http://Alvexo.com that help you get started with online currency trading in just a few clicks. They have tons of charts and even training materials so you can learn a bit more about the technical aspect of trading. I remember reading a lot about it, and starting a demo account to practice. While my predictions were generally pretty accurate over the long term, weathering the short term market swings was not my forte. [Read more...]
