    Hi Kolyo,

    Thanks for a fast responce.
    My queastion for now is(and i'm afraid it won't be my last if you don't mind );
    I've downloaded MT4, and then you have to look for a broker. After reading i decided to go for OANDA (i think this is a good one) but what is better; the highest ms or lowest ms? (btw what does ms stand for?)
    Thanks a lot for now and for the future

    Hi Stan, welcome aboard! Where in the Netherlands are you from? Although I really only Amsterdam(: great place, nice country, lovely people. Good having you around.

    regarding your question- oanda is a forex broker. I wonder.. How did you come to a conclusion you should look for this broker? Maybe something is not explained well on school and I would like to fix that impression..

    Hi Stan and welcome.
    Just like Martin said; you don't need a forex broker or any broker at all
    to install MT4 and watch the charts. Just sign up after installation and
    the charts you see are all real time charts. No need to sign up with any broker!
    If you want to trade binary options you need to choose a binary options broker!

    I'm from Maastricht, is the south of the Netherlands, close to the Belgium border. Nice town, beautiful sights, on off the oldest in the Netherlands, luckely not as busy then in Amsterdam :P.
    The reason to choose this broker, but really i haven't yet but that was my question (now i'm with FinFX or FXPROMAX, maybe better?) the reason was just because that's what i saw on a chart in a strategy. The one i have i read in a forum here.
    Because if you instal MT4 and you finish al the steps, then MT4 asks to open an account for a broker for live feeds (the standard was AlpariUK, but for some reason i could not open an account if i select it). I've tried to enter one of the recommended broker's, but i can't get a hit, so i was forced to look for something else.
    Maybe i made a mistake or overlooked something, so if anyone can help with that i'm greatfull.

    That's strange, I didn't have to open a live account with a broker
    to get feeds. Just register a "demo" with MT4. Did you download MT4
    from their original official website?

    Well, I'm sorry but that is not in English so I don't know what it says.
    But the first option where it says "Demo" can't you just choose that and proceed with the installation?
