Soros lost 800M$ two times within 6 months afterward.
Lost 800M$ twice? trading what? I have not heard of that, can you please give me a link to read that story? Look, even if that was true, He and Stanley Druckenmiller are great traders, and I think their money speaks for itself.
That was quite a long time ago
So in your point of view, the past success does not mean anything? I don't agree with you, Jesse Livermore was one of the greatest traders of all times, making and LOSING millions (in today's money that would be BILLIONS) and all that trading his own money. And Livermore is just an example, there are tons of traders from the 'old times' who were really succesfull, I don't see the point in making an statement like 'That was quite a long time ago', well, yes, it was long time ago, does that mean that doesn't count? hmm..
But going even deeper in the subject, forget about Soros and all the great traders, can you please tell me, WHY do you feel the fx market is harder? Also, what do you trade? and what is your style? I'd like to know more in deep about your thoughts.
