Who will be Chosen the Best Micro Broker of 2012?

News of forex broker rating. Every beginning trader that decides to become a professional, having completed forex training, faces a dilemma – which Forex broker to choose in order to open his first real trading account.

How to identify the best micro broker worldwide, which provides support in Russian, possesses starting deposit ranging from 1 to 20, maximum to 50 US dollars, has no experience of requotes, slipping, fraud, and deceit?

Why should real trading at forex market start with micro accounts?

In his interview to the “Market Leader” Canadian financial expert of Masterforex-V Academy Evgeny Olkhovski explained why beginners at Forex market should start real trading with micro accounts. His arguments are the following:
1. Opening a big real account in a broker company or DC is not only unwise, but even dangerous: mere people’s psychology or lack of experience often play dirty tricks. And forex market remembers every mistake. It was Aleksandr Elder who paid attention to the point that trader’s psychological problems (fear and passion) are one of the first and foremost reasons of loss at forex market;

2. At present over 20 forex brokers provide traders-beginners with a unique service of micro real trading accounts from 1 US dollar. The best forex training project in Europe, Masterforex-V Academy, highly recommends starting real trade at forex market with these accounts. When your trading system is working and brings profit, you earn money and gradually proceed to micro accounts (0.1 lot when 1 point equals to 1 US dollar) and then to standard forex with 1 trading lot (1 point equals to 10 US dollars)
Such sum is optimistic, as it relieves psychological pressure and fear to lose a large sum of money. As a result, you will have no worries and master your trading system. What is more, not many traders-beginners can afford a large deposit at the start;

3. How to choose the best out of 20 micro forex brokers who provide support in Russian? This is the hardest to answer. You can rely on the opinion of your acquaintances or feedbacks in blogs or social networks (over one half of them are, at least, not objective, at most – “designed”), various ratings, etc.

How to objectively choose the best micro forex broker?

In order to choose the best micro broker with Russian support, Masterforex-V Academy has started an open poll for forex traders:
what do points at the left mean? At the very beginning all nominated brokers are placed according to the number of their points in the general forex broker rating at Masterforex-V Academy: upper positions are assigned to those, whose spread is the smallest, receives least complaints from forex traders, has serious stock exchange licenses, work experience at the market, international awards, etc. (the total of about 20 objective and criteria that served as a basis for assigning these points);
how soon will the best micro forex broker of 2012 be singled out? On the basis of traders voting. Your vote “for” automatically adds point, and vote “against” takes off 1 point. Every attendant of forex forum (registration takes 1-2 minutes) can give one vote “for” and one vote “against”.

■ points in the first column show the reliability of micro forex broker according to 20 major criteria;
■ votes “against” give a serious signal for a forex broker about the reasons for discontent of its clients – forex traders;
■ votes “for” will show micro brokers, about who most traders have positive impression.

As a result, there will be formed a deep and objective complex assessment of over 20 forex brokers, who forex traders find convenient or inconvenient to work with.

What is the sequence of DCs at the beginning of choosing the best micro broker of 2012?

It is clearly observed, continues the financial expert, that at the beginning the brokers nominated for the best micro broker of 2012 that have highest points in the general rating (Nord FX, BMFN, FreshForex, Grand Capital, Alpari, RoboForex, and Forex4you) have advantage over their rivals.

However, the final position of every micro broker will be defined by the independent vote of traders at the web-site of the Academy. Any trader can assign his vote for or against any micro broker. Every vote “for” will add points to an applicant, and every vote “against” will correspondingly lower them.

As for the question about whose chances of winning are higher, the expert said that the management of the Academy may have its own opinion, which may be different from the one of most traders. Therefore, in order to avoid any influence on the results of the vote, the Academy abstains from giving its opinion and encourages every trader to take part in choosing The Best Micro Broker of 2012. Every vote counts.

Greece: A burden to the eurozone? Pros and cons


A few months ago any talk about the possibility of Greece's withdrawal from the eurozone was a taboo. Only independent experts and analysts could discuss it. But everything has changed. More and more opposing politicians and common people want Greece out of the eurozone.
For example, Christian Linder, general secretary of Free Democratic Party of Germany, promises to live Angela Merkel’ c coalition if she keeps backing Greece, allowing it to stay in the eurozone at the expense of German taxpayers. While Austria’s government supports Greece, according to Krone, 93% of the Austrians want Greece to leave the currency union.
2 years after the creation of the eurozone Greece fulfilled all the requirements of the Maastricht treaty and in 2001 entered the eurozone. 10 years later it may well become the first rogue member of the eurozone. If Greece is ultimately expelled from the eurozone, it will face a disaster. A return back to the Drachma will automatically double Greece’s public debt and will make the country go bankrupt.
Are there any benefits for the eurozone itself to expel one of its members? What should investors get ready for?
