Depends on how much you want to invest. If you'd prefer to start small, you could open an account with a broker that only requires a $10 deposit or so and deposit more money later on or build on that. On the other hand, you could deposit hundreds or thousands if you're very confident. I think the most important rule is not to go into debt when it comes to depositing in your trading account, meaning that you shouldn't borrow money or take out a loan, and to only invest money that isn't designated for important things like groceries or bills. That will help you avoid going into debt from trading and if you do lose money you won't have to scramble to pay it back.
Oh, you can invest $100 or $1000 or $100000. Everything depends on your own finance, your knowledges, and your time. Yeah, time is really important. Because you need a lot of time for forex. you need to trade, constantly monitor the market and so on. So think about it.
I started with a small amount because I wasn’t 100% confident and didn’t want to lose a large amount of money if it turned out that I wasn’t good at it. Later on, I deposited a lot more once I saw good results.

thats the way to go for sure. Like you need to be comfortable with the amount you lose on each trade other wise you will intervene on a good trade or cut a trade going well because the amount is more than you expected
More capital the better for real returns especially when trying to make 1-3% gains a week. But understandably hard to get enough capital for most people. Bit of a catch 22, those with more capital will find it easier to make profit off of it.
I think better keep obey rules investing money in risky business, just spent money that affords to lose, if still beginner they can start small use the micro account, and intermediate trader they can using bigger capital using STP account, a different trader has the different level skill, so make sure when you already spent big money, get supported by your skill, so it not waste money, but if still often worse in trading work, don't spent to big money because riskier
