I have noticed, lots of fx traders popping up
I have also noticed, FX broker ads on yahoo finance and on many mainstream websites.
The bandwagon to be on! who's on it hahaha
I don't know if these people are just sheep but, there is very little edge in FX trading. PEople who trade it profitably either have been sludging it out for 2+ years or are good for the commish to their brokers.
Forex at 100:1 or even 200:1 leverage isn't any riskier than buying options (calls and puts).
