It's a great business model, constant income ,keep churning clients when it goes flop ,courses are in big demand no downside as most are education only not investment advice, lots of ex city boys who made it big in the boom in a one way market ,now they can't trade to make 10% a year lol.

Forex can make you rich easier than a lot of things... but you need at least something like 10.000 hours of study and practice to master something.

I am a doctor. My Medicine graduation had 6 years, studying at least 50 hours per week. (6 x 50 x 50 = 15.000 hours). After that, I spent 3 years to become a Surgeon (3 x 80 x 50 = 12.000 hours) and another 2 years to become an ICU doctor (8.000 hours). After 40.000 hours studying and working , I became an expert. My wage? 240.000 USD/year.

You will not master Forex trading without effort... I am studying technical analysis for near 4 years, 4 hours a day... (4 x 50 x 4 = 800 h). After 800h I can make easily 3-5% monthly, with low DD. Over 150.000 USD? 90.000 USD/year

After that, I wonder why I spent so much energy in Medicine...

Only 800 hours of trading in 4 years, trading 4 hours per day? Hmm, maybe you mean 4 hours per week? Otherwise I would be wondering how can you do medicine job AND 4 hours of trading day every day... ;)

You are correct! Studying 4 hours a week, not a day.
Trade safely... Remember, a high Drawdown means a high risk!

Go to www.udemy.com and type Forex. There is a guy called Kirill Eremenko that sold 533.000 courses at least 10 USD each. Yes, Forex made this guy rich (533.000 × 10 = 5.330.000 USD).

Yes. Forex can make a lot of people rich!

Your free publicity here has just helped make him a little bit richer. 😁

The discerning factor is: how long did it take him to reach this level? 4 years 2 months to make $5.3 million? (https://www.linkedin.com/in/keremenko/)

Trading could compound returns much higher, sooner.

This thread asks if TRADING can make you rich: selling products, education and subscriptions is related but NOT trading. 😐

Can forex sales make you rich?
Most definitely. Little downside risk (eg. the odd refund).

Can forex trading make you rich?
The jury is still out... 😁 (for every profitable trader, there are at least nine unprofitable traders).

I agree with you!
100% of newbies think they will be the next Soros. After 1 month, 40% gave up, after 1 year, 80% are out. Only 7% stay trading for more than 5 years. And just 1% are able to profit in a regular basis.

What that means? Resilience and work are the key for everything. Learning is an exponential curve! In Louvre Museum, I learned that any sculpture was done in 5-10 years of work, for someone that studied the same time to do them...
I spent near 40.000 hours of my life to be an expert in Medicine. I needed ten years to apply for a black belt in Judo.... nothing comes easy!

True, nothing comes easy - except if you discover an automated system that always works.
It took me ten years to find, but had I discovered it in the beginning I would be miles ahead today.

Trading is not as hard as the so-called 'experts' would have you believe. 😉

Can forex make you rich? I emphatically tell you YES! 😎

Surgery is not so difficult as surgeons make you believe...
The same for forex trading...
The hard thing is study, learn and practice... for surgery, for forex, for everything in life...
Even a robot, to find or create one useful, you must study, learn and test...

Yes it sure can, a strategy that works, does not and won't be 100% success rate and proper risk management. Of course always pay the trader with each trade, so that means take partials and move stop loss.

I see Forex as a 'Math'. If you apply the formulas correctly & combine it with risk management = you will solve the task properly. If you solve the task properly = it will generate excellent results :)

FIND the right (simple) system, and you can be rich WITHOUT:

- studying / learning anything;
- working at 1x 2x 3x JOBs - Just Over Broke;
- searching / working on a super-dooper unique EA;
- having 0 social life;
- losing friends and family;
- becoming a recluse;
- suffering mental, emotional, physical, financial stress;
- losing $500,000++ on bad investments
- losing sleep;
- losing health;
- losing confidence, interest, motivation in life;
- losing ten years of life.

Thanks. 'Broke the rock'? Broke the bank? Squeezed so hard I finally got blood from a rock? Sorry I don't understand you.

While I am glad you made the breakout and be successful I see the account started last month.
Such fresh systems often stop working after 3-6 months [own experience]

Really Forex is too much tough for the traders who are in particularly newbie. So, obviously a new trader should work hard to achieve the market easily. they should make a best strategy for themselves . they should spend most of their time in analyzing Forex market because it will increase their knowledge of analysis. They also should practice much on demo account to make their trading easy. Then they should choose a right and reputed broker for them .
