    Hey

    I know this isn't a forex or trading forum but was curious how many of you do trade for living or making some serious cash

    I will not go back to forex even if Warren Buffett decides to teach me how to invest in forex.

    How much did you make? $1000 perday and above?

    Curious about forex though. I even got few forex books, and DVD, that I bought.

    But still dint touch forex till now. Due too paranoid, I see and heard more people lost money with it than earning money.

    I see...

    90% loss money
    9% make decent cash "just for living"
    1% make some serious cash with it



    So I better just stick with I.M

    I made some bucks in forex in 2014 but it required hell amount of research!
    Also; it's very risky!
    Not going to go on that road again!

    I'd imagine the numbers are pretty much the same for I.M.

    Not getting involved in something because it has a high risk of failure is ridiculous.

    well I did lose a lot because I traded on my own without getting into it for real because I was skeptical about it would be so easy to make so much money but thank god I've been blessed with my mentor and I'm not anywhere near the big numbers but I make a living off it for now not a luxury life yet but still trading and improving daily. The best week I've had so far is 9700$ and I'm from Denmark so that's like a doctors monthly salary so I'm satisfied. It's true that 90% fails but I'm gonna be the 1% I'm in love with forex and hopefully I'll be living off it.

    I couldn't agree more it's a risk but in the end it will be worth it if you really want it. I was in the 90% now I'm in the 9% hopefully one day I'll be the 1%

    Another one here. I've traded successfully but only on $1k accts since 2007. Wrote a couple of eBooks on topic (mentioned elsewhere).

    It's just like IM in that you have to pay dues, learn the curve, and keep adapting til you "get it". It's more challenging to make consistent money what with humans' natural greedy/fearful tendencies and what not but once you "get it", sky's the limit.

    And like davoodik above me said (still don't know how to tag members in a post), if you can find a legit mentor who trades successfully (get undeniable proof somehow of their claims) and is willing to teach, it makes ALL the difference in the world.

    exactly like it's not that easy as people think it can take years to master the market, price action and analyzes. You've been in for a while so you might know him oceannsky on Instagram. Could you maybe send me a few links to your ebooks. Would love to learn about other traders, their strategies, stories etc

    The weeks I make more than 5000$ is thanks to my mentor he gives me signals when to trade and which pairs to buy and sell etc while I'm practicing my technical analyze skills. I've made about 2000-3500 on my own which is okay for me as well.
