Forex is not a scam. But you will find people here who are doing their best to scam greedy people. I said greedy people bcoz they believe their unrealistic profit promising. Everyone specially newbies should know that there is no short cut in trading.
If anyone think forex is a scam, then the person knows nothing.Trading made me who I'm today, if you can trade very well, you get a lot of firm demanding for your services, you get paid well, depending the kind of deal you signed with your firm, you could be allowed to copy your trades to outside clients.
Only experience or scam in this are brokers, fake brokers, sadly I have experience this with 3 different clients, just imagine trading for a client and making much profits over the months and broker starts making excuses when you client put for withdrawal.
Just make sure you know how to trade or you employ their service of proffesional, all you need to worry about is choosing the right broker, because that is where the real scam is.
