I started trading with HYCM with the educational program. Then I moved to a demo account and only after that I started trading with a real ECN account. It was a very positive experience which helped me to understand that trading is a serious business and I have to be ready to invest my money and time. Of course, such long-term investments are only possible with a reliable broker. HYCM is exactly that. This may sound too positive, but I like the fact that the Tier-1 broker accepts deposits starting from $100. Other top-league brokers accept deposits starting from $5,000-$10,000, but this broker is unique in this regard.
