If you actuall intend to make forex you source of income, start with a good capital. My first fund although not funded by me but client was 150k for a sharing profits, then after a year he introduced me to firm that hired me, that was over 20 years ago. Just a good capital and you are good with good returns. I have a lot of people apart from me who forex is now source of income. I really don't see my self doing any other thing apart from trading now, I have a lot of responsibilities to keep my clients happy each month, in return they keep me happy by paying me after withdrawal.So been in it for the past 20 years that I don't see any other thing to do. If you can be making continuous profits in forex, you actually see its fun to do and repeat all over again. That is my joy in this, I intended playing football back then, but I get more than what i need in trading and I lost interest in playing football. It's all about the Benjamins, if i could get it trading, why bother myself again?
