I have just started to become interested in Forex trading due to the 24 hour a day trading. I am reading everything I can and all that good stuff but I have some questions I think could be answered here on ET. My first question is weather or not mini forex trading (like that offered at FXCM) would be a good way to go. With a 1000 dollar deposit it seems like it would be a good way to learn and not have to burn through too much cash. Is this the really the case? Second, I really want to trade forex due to the 24 hour a day trading but I was wondering if there are better times then others to trade forex throughout the day? For example, is the market better to trade during US market hours or can the market really be traded profitably through the day? Just looking for some input from more experienced forex traders, thanks.
