The million dollar question in forex trading - How much should I start with in forex trading. Technically you can start with as little $5 USD. Yes you heard it right & no limit to upside. But with $5 USD do not expect some fireworks. There is no one straight answer to what's the ideal amount to invest in forex trading. It depends on quite a few factors which we will be getting into right away.

The first factor to consider is this, how much money are you willing to lose. if its $10, $1000 or more. Whatever that amount is is the amount you should consider investing. Second thing is understanding that the higher amount you have in your trading account, the lesser is the risk and there is higher possibility of making gradual returns on your account provided you trade sanely.

Let me explain to you how this works. Lets say you are aiming to make a $100 per week. Now if you invest just a $100, you are aiming to make 100% return per week which can end up in high risk trading.

But if you start with $1000 & aim to make $100 per week, that is still a much lower risk as now you are aiming to make just a 10% of the account. Thirdly, enough money on your account allows you to keep your trades running for longer in case you are on a wrong position, this way you can actually wait for the trades to come back into your favor. These are the important pointers to consider while thinking about how much to invest in trading.
Trading is a business, not a casino. As a trader, you are a businessman, not a gambler.

In my opinion, starting trading with only $10 USD is good for learning purpose. For good investment I recommend $500 to $1000.

The more you invest, the more you can develop your skills. Because it is never possible to survive in trading without developing skills. I think it is better to make a minimum deposit of 1000 USD.

As a beginner, you must not invest a big amount. You better start small so that you stay safe.

That entirely depends on your capital and how much you want to spend on trading.

For starting one should not invest a lot. Many people think if they had big capital they would make a lot of money. But the truth is if you do not have enough skills and experience, you will lose all the money. No matter how big or small capital you invest.

Always start with low capital. Try to focus on growing this capital into a big one.

Trading should be done with the amount of investment that can be used to maintain money management and risk management.

Always invest small amount unless you start making money on consistent basis. Once you are making regular profit, you can invest big money.

Good point. Beginner traders have less knowledge so trading with big investments is more likely to result in loss.

yeah good advice i feel $100 is good to start as you can use % growth and see how you are doing better as a new trader. but as stated if you are looking to make say $100 a week then you need 10X that. its better to start small lose small and learn first for sure

I agree with you. You can keep your trades running for a longer time if you invest a bigger amount. I know a beginner should not be investing much, but you can’t really do much with $5 in my opinion. So, save up for a while and then go for it.

Start with $0 . Use a demo first. By the time you get that to work you will understand forex and will know how much you want to deposit

In currency trading, with a small deposit you may begin trading. Leverage gives the trader the capability to exchange with little balance. Once you start to make regular profit, you can deposit big amount.

Thank you for sharing this information here. I have seen a lot of newbies struggling with the amount of capital required to start their forex journey, this will certainly help them.

If you are a complete beginner for forex, then go with very little investments like $10 to 30$ and also make sure to keep your leverage as low as possible like 1:10 or 1:20. Else if you know how trading works and want to make some good returns, you can start with investments like $100 dollars until you feel confident to invest more.

@williearnold With 10$ capital and 1:10 or 1:20 leverage trading is not possible. To open a .01 lot, it requires 1000$. So 10$ (capital×10(leverage)=100$. Initially a newbie can do trade with 100$+ investment to learn proper money and risk management.

Yes. You can go ahead with trading with small deposits, it will develop knowledge. And from that experience I will be able to trade with big investment.
