Governed by price and time for that is the essence of life, Eagle Global Markets is a gateway that provides a platform whereby investors can have access to the global markets and also take advantage of price movement that exists in global markets. If you are new to the world of investing and would feel more secure being provided with a little support, it is salient to learn about the people and institutions that would help you get started.

You may be accustomed to the term broker, perhaps associating it with a stockbroker. When it comes to investing, a broker acts as an intermediary, facilitating trades between buyers and sellers of securities. In exchange for meshing these transactions, a broker charges a commission. Institutions or firms that assume this role are generally referred to as brokerage firms.

Choosing which broker to use is what is most terrifying for a brand new investor. There are three questions you need to ask yourself before choosing a broker. But before diving into these questions, the first thing you need to look out for is whether or not the brokerage firm is an online retail broker.

The first question you need to ask yourself is what you want to get involved with. Are you looking to trade equities, indices, commodities, or currency pairs? Because that is going to determine what sought of broker you should be looking at. Some brokers are better than others, some brokers only do certain things. Many times, a forex broker is only going to allow you trade currencies. It is not going to allow you trade commodities, equities or any other financial instruments.

If you have no idea of what you want to get involved with, then you are not ready for a broker yet. The second question you need to ask yourself is how active you are going to be. Are you going to be trading let say once a day, three times a week, two times in a month, and so on? All these go a long way in determining what type of broker you should be looking for.

The third question you need to ask yourself is how much money. Some brokers require a minimum trading deposit, some don’t. Once you can answer the three questions above, then you would be able to resolve the basic issues of what to trade? How to trade? And, how to make a profit?

Choosing the wrong broker would only make you broke. The second thing you need to look out for is whether or not the brokerage firm treats educating their clientele as an utmost priority. A brokerage firm that offers basic introductory, intermediate and advanced classes for free is very hard to come by.

Trading global markets is a dream come true for many traders around the world. The reason is not far-fetched, as it allows you to make money on your schedule, you don’t have to depend on others for success, and you finally get to create the life you want. There are endless opportunities accrued from trading global financial instruments, as it is a market that cuts across the world, but first, you need a Broker account.

While businesses of all shapes and sizes can benefit from a smart social presence, the importance of social media for financial brokerage really can’t be overstated. A social media profile can introduce you to new clients, remind existing customers about your value and be a means of sharing and boosting your content online.

The impact of social media in various walks of life is a well-known fact, and the busy and lucrative global markets trading is not immune to the charm exuded by social media. The social media can also be considered to be proof of existence, i.e. the company is not a scam.

A firm’s social media footprint can say a lot about how a brand is perceived by clients and the public at large. What is even more exciting is that very few brokers are effectively deploying a social media strategy.
