Completely up to you based on two things-one how much you can afford to lose and two your risk appetite starting off. You need to be able to sit comfortably in drawdown without getting nervous or closing your position early

There is no limit to how much you can trade with other than your broker’s requirements. But yes, you must always start small when you are going live. You can choose an amount that you find suitable for trading as per the risk you wish to take.

You must always invest what you are comfortable risking because there is no limit to how much it should be. If your broker allows, you can trade with as low as $5 because the beginning of your trading career would be full of mistakes and losses that you must take lessons from.

Initially it's good to invest low amount. How much is the low amount varies person to person. To some 100 may be little amount but for some 500 seems low.

Forex market is risky but if I want to survive in this situation I have to work with good investment. If the trader does not maintain risk, it will not be possible to survive in trading.

In short what you can afford to lose but with that comes the stipulation that the amount you can afford to lose allows you to trade with proper risk management with the smallest lot size you can use (so 0.01 on standard accounts). If you are not able to do this then keep your powder dry and stay on demo until you can.

If you can't spot the liquidity then you are the liquidity.

I believe that you need to start with minimal amounts. As for me, this option will be the most correct.

Invest is built on experience. If I am a professional trader, my investment will be one way and if I am a beginner trader, my investment will be another.
