I recently read an ebook by someone who started with $1000 and turned it into $522,200 in 8 days and 154 trades trading the Thai Baht against the dollar. He also turned $50,000 into $1,138,358.59 in 3 consecutive hours trading the Swedish Kroner against the dollar. This was all using virtual money but this seems very incredible and unbelievable to me. Does anyone know if this is really possible? I am skeptical by nature so I still don't really believe it can be done. Maybe I'm wrong. I don't really know anything at all about how the Kroner and Baht are traded profitably. I saw on one site the spread for the Kroner was 100 pips so it must not be a very liquid currency.
