I agree, just like any business, without knowledge if one initiates it, it is nothing but doom. Proper knowledge and a fair bit of experience is a must for profitable trading. I started out with Fxview after completing my trading course and attending numerous seminars and webinars of the same. But it was only after a year or so I started making real money. Discipline and patience are also very important in trading. One should not try and speed up the process by playing big numbers. I started trading more than 5k in one trade only after I started profiting on a consistent basis. Operating 2 accounts now, Oanda besides Fxview and happy with the direction my trades are taking.
