Gainesville Forex Traders Meetup

This is a meetup group for people interested in doing online currency trading, aka foreign exchange, aka FOREX!

All levels welcome. Just bring your laptop and start learning, practice trading, or for-real trading, but DON’T LOSE ALL YOUR MONEY! And if you can do that successfully, then share your knowledge with the rest of us…

There are a number of websites out there that one can use, but the ones I like are Oanda.com for trading (including practice trading) and BabyPips.com for education. (You’ll learn what pips are if you don’t already know.) I also recommend becoming familiar with government regulatory agencies and their websites that relate to forex trading and protection for little joe’s like us.

Check out the website at http://www.meetup.com/Gainesville-Forex-Traders-Meetup/. Please contact Marney with any questions: Marney.schulz@ufl.edu. See you soon at a Gainesville Forex Traders Meetup.
