If you are just starting out in FX trading, I am sure you have many questions.  While you may appreciate the excellent analysis found here at DailyFX, you can also find information on the basic knowledge needed to start trading.  That is why we called this section The Basics.  There you can find answers to the most basic questions about trading that all who place a trade should know.  How you identify a trend or where to place stop orders are just two of the many subjects found at this page.  You can find The Basics by first clicking on the DailyFX for Beginners tab at the top of the DailyFX page.
