To be a professional trader, you need to live on trading.
Assuming someone a good trader, you must have sufficient amount of capital, personal money, or money from investors.
I see many people here, which are intended to call 'investment', a 'bet' with 1000 dollars or even less than that.
It is impossible, for an investment of this capital, a profit that justifies the long hours of dedication, that trading needs.
For this reason, they invented the business followed and followers. so that someone with very little capital can have significant gains.
That would be fine if the trader was really good, and the follower has more or less the same capital, but unfortunately, anyone can invest $ 1000 in 10 different accounts with $ 100 each, and sell that is winning and attractive.
Trading is not so simple, takes risks, the investor wants to win, the trader wants to win, and you have to carefully balance the interests of all participants.
In this forum, I do not think you have investors here, here only have dreamers who want, feel that they are traders.
They are the same kind of people who will see Formula 1, just to see who destroys the car, not to see who wins the race ...
And a serious investor, he just wants the best driver.
I repeat, if you have 5k, buy a TV, do not try to invest.
Risk comes from not knowing what you're doing.
