Over the last few months, I decided to embark on forex trading and learn all I can about the forex market. It took me sleepless nights from blowing my accounts to making a few profits and finally blowing the entire account.
Forex trading is indeed not a venture for the weak. Forex, also called foreign exchange, is a global, decentralized market for trading currencies, commodities, and indices.
If you want to invest in forex, you need to put the work first by acquiring the relevant knowledge and skills, practice, and be a person who is not afraid of risk.
Nevertheless, let me share with you a few reasons why I decided to embark on learning forex trading.
1. Small Start-up Capital
Forex trading does not require a huge investment. With a small amount of $5, you can start trading depending on your broker. You just have to go slow and grow the forex account. The rest will be history. There are several examples of people who started with $100 and grew it to 7 figures.
You have to be consistent, smart, and patient to do so.
2. Time Flexibility
Unlike the 5-9 hours of a job, forex trading offers convenience in terms of time flexibility. The forex market is open 24/7 as it involves global currency exchange. It operates 24 hours a day as currencies of different countries from around the world flood the market. You can decide to enter or exit a trade whenever you want. Therefore, you can start trading whenever you have time.
Forex is one of the few businesses that allow you to trade anytime.
3. High Profitability
One of the best things about the forex business is that it has the potential to make you a millionaire overnight if you trade wisely. However, the profitability rate is only high if you win most of your trades. Most people who started forex trading as a part-time business ended up quitting their jobs to focus on forex trading because they have earned good profits than they expected. The key to earning more profits is to invest more.
The higher your investment, the more profits you are likely to earn. However, you need to learn forex and make smart decisions in order to win trades successfully.
4. Anyone Can Start Trading Regardless Of Their Experience And Knowledge
Forex trading is open to anyone regardless of his or her experience and knowledge. However, due to its risky nature, I highly recommend that you acquire the proper knowledge first before venturing into the forex market.
As a beginner, you can start with a couple of dollars of investment and then gradually grow as you gain experience over time.
Forex has endless opportunities to grow. You do not need a training course or special skills or experience to get started. All you need is consistency and the ability to learn and grow.
At the time of writing this article, I have learned all about forex trading and am on my journey to becoming a consistently profitable trader. The journey continues.
