Hello dear,
Every trader wants to make money from forex trading. But some can do this and some are losing their money in forex trading. So, in my opinion, every new trader, first needs to know What is forex trading and how does its works, and need to know what is forex brokers. So here you will get some knowledge about forex trading and brokers.

What is a Forex trading and How does it work?
Foreign exchange market, Forex or FX is a global decentralized or over-the-counter market for the trading of currencies. This market determines foreign exchange rates for every currency. It includes all aspects of buying, selling, and exchanging currencies at current or determined prices. In terms of trading volume, it is by far the largest market in the world. The main participants in this market are the larger international banks. Financial centers around the world function as anchors of trading between a wide range of multiple types of buyers and sellers around the clock, with the exception of weekends. The foreign exchange market works through financial institutions and operates on several levels. Behind the scenes, banks turn to a smaller number of financial firms known as dealers, who are involved in large quantities of foreign exchange trading. Most foreign exchange dealers are banks, so this behind-the-scenes market is sometimes called the interbank market. Trades between foreign exchange dealers can be very large, involving hundreds of millions of dollars. Trading from 22:00 GMT on Sunday (Sydney) until 22:00 GMT Friday (New York).
According to the Bank for International Settlements, the preliminary global results from the 2019 Triennial Central Bank Survey of Foreign Exchange and OTC Derivatives Markets Activity show that trading in foreign exchange markets averaged $6.6 trillion per day in April 2019. This is up from $5.1 trillion in April 2016. Measured by value, foreign exchange swaps were traded more than any other instrument in April 2019, at $3.2 trillion per day, followed by spot trading at $2 trillion.

There are 3 types of forex brokers:
ECN Broker
MM broker
STP broker
ECN means Electronic Communications Network (it is a network) Within this network the broker collects the prices of several liquidity providers such as banks, or financial institutions and always selects the best prices to offer them to its customers. Broker ECN offers real market conditions offering its customers the possibility of operating under the same conditions as banks and other large companies. Spread are lower offering Market Makers or STP brokers. There are no conflicts of interest with its customers. Transactions in ECN are performed as instant execution, that is, without any delay.
Market Maker are the brokers that create their own markets and conditions, which means that prices do not enter directly from banks etc. Virtually every 1 of 3 brokers is Market Maker. They offer spreads a little higher than ECN or STP.
STP is by Straight Trough Processing. They work more or less like ECN, sending all transactions directly to the market. STP brokers always increase the spreads offered by liquidity providers and this is their benefit. There are no conflicts of interest with its customers. STP brokers offer to carry out transactions as Instant execution, without any delay. Operations always go to the foreign exchange market, liquidity providers, banks or financial institutions.
