I have this experienced forex trader whom I am taking his course and he says that you should not put more than $2000 in your forex account -- because forex is still unregulated. With $2000 you can control two lots -100 to 1 leverage = $200,000. He says with two lots you can make 5 to ten pips a day on average for most days excepts weekends. $50 to $100 per day on a $2000 account seems unrealistic to me. Any opinions from expereinced forex traders appreciated.
