    I myself know some risks, but I would like every personal opinion, then I will analyze in my house if we agree. Your opinion is important. Thank you.

    To say that the FOREX market is risky would be quite an understatement! According to some studies, over 95% of all currency traders actually end up loosing money over time. Remember, it's not how many trades you win or loose, it's how much you win in each trade. So if you win an average of 9 out of 10 trades, but you win $1 per winning trade, and lose $10 per bad trade, you will still come out negative even with a 90% win rate. Another thing to keep in mind is that a lot of traders assume they have unlimited money when they set up their quantitative models. There are only so many loses in a row your account can handle even if your win rate is 900 out of every 1000 trades. Of course, a 90% win rate is ridiciously fantastic and highly unlikely too.

    Forex investments are EXTREMELY risky, I seriously wouldn't recommend it unless you really know what you're doing. You might, and probably will, end up losing a lot of your hard earned money.

    Yup, I agree with bulding: it's too risky business.
    I would recommend it if you are into the game for several years and know the secret behind it ;) . Don't invest more than you're willing to lose.

    Agreed.

    For me, it's always been about ending up with a big pile of money when it's time to retire - preferably while still fairly young. I don't care how I do it, just that I do it.

    For me it's NOT about taking inordinate risks just to impress myself or others then losing my $ at some point along the way.

    You must cross your fingers and if you're lucky then you will be smiling all the way to the bank. If you happen to lose you should not blame anyone for it. Just wait for another chance and maybe luck will be on your side.

    A risk management system is very easy to use especially if you use a ready made platform. By entering a few variables such as the current prices of currencies you can manage your own trading risk.

    Forex market is a risky market. Risk is everywhere in this market. If you want to invest in forex you need to have the habit of taking risk. The more you take risk the more you can get the chance to make profit. A good broker like TP Global FX can help you to take the decision about trading. They can help you to make strategy to minimize the loss as much as possible.
