I just wanted to write this to hopefully inspire some people to try their hands at Forex. There were a few posts that encouraged me to stay on track. I've read many posts that overwhelmingly emphasize the risk. I believe if you've traded stocks and/or options for awhile, you're aware of risk and leverage. I also believe you're aware that there's nothing easy about making money consistently. I've read many threads that evolved into flame wars because the original poster was deemed too enthusiastic about the opportunities of FX. However, the forex market inherently provides greater chances of profitability using a sound strategy and discipline. Math is a science that no one can deny. If you use a firm that allows you to buy/sell in 1 unit increments, you can watch your profits increase exponentially. I've invested/traded stocks for a little over a decade. In terms of profit, predictability, and analysis (whether TA or FA), there is no comparison. A goal of 10% (or any percent) compounded each month is actually more feasible in FX than the stock market. Do the math: 10% compounded for 6 months is a great annual return. Good luck to everyone.
