I admit i know jack squat about forex trading, nothing, nada, zilch, so please i dont need comments saying get out while you can or train for a year before you do any trading etc etc. I am here asking for help for the very basics My first and formost question is if I buy something how long can I hold that position? For example if I buy a share of Wal-mart I can hold onto it forever. But if I buy an option or commodity, eventually it has a time line. Does forex have a time line?? Now I just started with a 50000 dollar fake account with FXCM and within 24 hours i made 700 dollars profit. My equity never hit below 48000, so am I assuming I never used more than 2000 buying power? Again I apologize but I am eager to learn and will learn and plan on trading in the very near future once I learn more. Lastly if there is no time line (I already know what people are going to say, but I have done it in the stock market with great results, I just want to speed things up and since over 3 trillion dollars a day is traded in this market it seems prime for me to try it) I like to average down, cont. to buy if it drops and get my average price down until I can make a small profit and then sell. I have been 100 percent successful in the stock market so far, but again it is extremly slow and I wonder has anyone else done this with success or lost their ass to this system. Thanks in advance Note"up 800 dollars now lol"
