How much will I earn if I start trading on Forex with minimum deposit?

What do support and resistance levels mean?

Support level is a level lower than the current rate, where the upward turn is possible from.

Resistance level is a level above the current rate, which the downward turn is possible from.

What is trailing stop?

When you set a trailing stop order (at X pips), the platform does nothing until your trade brings profit in amount of X pips (rate of your trailing stop). Then the platform sets stop loss order X pips far from the current price (in our case it is the break-even point). If the market price goes up, the stop loss level also moves up proportionally. If the market price goes down, the stop loss level remains. This means that the trailing stop loss follows the current price at a distance of X pips. In this way, a trader limits the possible loss but does not limit the profit profit. Therefore, a trailing stop is a stop loss control algorithm: "it follows the price to profit". Attention! Trailing stop works only when your trading platform is connected to the server through the Internet.

What does profit figure or price movement figure mean?

Profit figure is 100 pips profit. Price movement figure is 100 pips movement. Round numbers are referred to figures as well. For example: "EURUSD passes over the seventeenth figure" means that the rate exceeded the 1.1700 level.
