Always invest small amount unless you start making money on consistent basis. Once you are making regular profit, you can invest big money.

As a beginner, you must not invest a big amount. You better start small so that you stay safe.

Good point. Beginner traders have less knowledge so trading with big investments is more likely to result in loss.

yeah good advice i feel $100 is good to start as you can use % growth and see how you are doing better as a new trader. but as stated if you are looking to make say $100 a week then you need 10X that. its better to start small lose small and learn first for sure

I agree with you. You can keep your trades running for a longer time if you invest a bigger amount. I know a beginner should not be investing much, but you can’t really do much with $5 in my opinion. So, save up for a while and then go for it.

Surely starting small is good for those who are still at the beginner level. It’s fine for familiarizing themselves with the concepts and terminology.

Agreed. better to start off with a small sum than regretting losing all the money in one go. As a beginner, one lacks knowledge and doesnt have much experience of how unpredictable fx markets can be. So its wise to not risk much.

Isn’t $100 too low to begin? I thought it was just for micro accounts or something.

Even if you go with a standard account, you can still manage to trade mini or micro lots. Going for a micro account with as low as $100 is okay too if a newbie just wants to practice. There is no such set limit with them and it totally depends on the trader. Like when I started trading, I went with 2 accounts - demo account for practicing strategies and micro account for practicing them in live conditions. This allowed me to focus on managing risk at a small scale without worrying so much about losing a high amount.
