You can invest any amount of money. But if you are a beginner then invest the least amount of money. And once you get a fair amount of knowledge, then you can increase your account.
Beginners can make a profit but their knowledge is limited. That is why their investment really needs to be kept low. And of course greed needs to be controlled.

Unless you have a

1.Winning strategy / edge ( % win in the long run in your favour)
2.Money management in place (under your strategy)
3.Pair or pairs you trade constantly, and you watch and know how those pairs charts are painted on your chosen time frame ( under your strategy)
4.Trading hours to suit the pairs you trade ( under your strategy)
5.You NO exactly what news is coming out, and at what time that will affect your trade (obviously under your strategy)
Then the amount of Margin/capital/cash a beginner puts up is irrelevant.

Unless he has 1-5 under his belt ,well his

In fact, these issues are very important in trading. And you have to make such investment so that risk management can be done.

When you're starting out no more than you can afford to lose, so I would say $100. Once you have been trading a while, slowly start adding to it each paycheck.

Build your account up to at least $500-1,000 before adding too much.

Keep in mind, as a goal, once your account is over $5k the profits really increase.

It’s what you can afford to put at risk more than what you want to, because the market doesn’t work on your ideologies. You have to understand its ideology to make big deals.

There is no particular sum of money which you have to invest in trading, The more money you have in order to invest it in to trading, the more money you will earn or lose. Everything here depends on your personal skills, knowledge and experience. If you're a new trader, then I guess you shouldn't invest lots of money. You can just deposit a small amount of money and try to trade on this sum. No doub,ts that you will face more losses, rather than wins, nevertheless it's an inevitable part of trading activity. Novices always think that trading is all about eays money, however it's not like tht at all, and there are no activities which will generate huge sums on short times.

There is no particular amount you should invest. I started off with thousand bucks trading into fxview, it is just a matter of having the right mindset and strategy to make a good earn.

One should invest according to risk tolerance and capital. I would recommend starting with a small amount of money which you are willing to risk.

There is no upper limit on investment and you can invest as much as you want, but you need to consider the risk and quantity and invest in a reasonable period of time.

A very common query and confusion among novices, trading can be started with an amount as little as $100. Another benefit of forex trading is that you don’t need a fixed capital to trade. So, rather than worrying about capital, you spend time honing skills that will help you multiply your investment.

It depends strictly on your personal needs and wishes. What do you want to get from trading or investing? Answer this question and then you will have an answer how much money you require in order to start trading. I believe nowadays there is nothing difficult to start investing, because brokers allow people to start trading or investing just with 10-100$. This sum is considered to be the most acceptable for them. I hope all people have extra 100$ which they can invest in some stocks or forex trading, which will generate extra income.

Forex trading can be highly profitable but it is also very risky. If you like to participate in the Forex market you need to invest money, but only a limited amount, the amount that you can afford to lose. So the first step of the trading process is to create a financial plan and calculate your allowable risk and then invest the amount that you decided upon.

Deciding the right amount of capital investment can often be confusing for novices. However, you can always start small and add on to your capital eventually. Personally, I started with a basic investment of $200 and added more soon after I became confident about my skills and knowledge.

I think it's great to have the option to start as low as $5, even though that isn't going to do much for you. Some may be anxious to deposit at all, so it's a good way to ease into the markets. It's always better to deposit more, but some may need to work their way up to it. I personally started with around $100, but turned around and made a larger deposit shortly after.

Most people start with a demo/practice/paper trading account. But you need to get started to be used to trading real money. Open a micro account and trade like $100 for $1 trades.

Plan out your trades on the fake account first, then after at least 15 minutes to an hour of watching it develop, open the same trade on the real account.
Protect against loses and the profits take care of themselves.

Another option is to have a stash that is set aside for trading but invest say 20% of it or something like that. If you then blow that then at least you have support funds to go and try again. Better to test with a smaller amount and add to it when you have evidence that it is a wise decision than go all in and blow the lot.
If you can't spot the liquidity then you are the liquidity.

I believe it depends on person to person, there is no specific amount as such with which one needs to trade. You can start with any amount as long as you are comfortable with that.

It all depends on your risk tolerance and goals. But if you're just getting started in forex, it's not worth risking a lot of money.
