You have to be very careful about the broker you choose for forex trading. I have worked with many but they will cheat by trading against me and so on. I like Interactive Brokers as they are the most honest. Also, you can start with not much money. I started doing this but I missed out on the big moves as weaker currencies go up as the US dollar goes up. It is an easy way to invest with little stress compared to day trading.
I am looking at doing a forex trading workshop to show I am doing my trading with it. Let me know if you would be interested.
