The internet is bombarded with so many advertisements that promise you, you can achieve great wealth in a very short time and with almost no effort of your side. Well, I find it very hard to believe. A few times I even checked out some of those and not surprisingly, found out it turned out to be just a waste of my time. I’m quit sure you have seen at least a couple of those advertisements.
Many of those advertisements are forex (or forex trading) related and try to tell you about huge gains are waiting for you, YOU JUST HAVE TO START TRADING and money will pour your way. They make it seem as if it’s easy like growing dollars in a planter.
Well, real life as I know it doesn’t work that way. There’s no money lying around and waiting for you (or for me) to pick it off the floor. If there was some magic formula for instant wealth with no hassle, why all the lists of the richest people always contain people that worked hard for a very long time (the wealth is sometimes accumulated thru whole generations)? That said, you can try and use the forex market to MAKE SOME CASH. But it probably won’t be easy, at least at first. In addition it will probably take some time to learn and it could cost you money if you lose some trades.
The way to make money by trading forex (or any other financial market for that matter) starts with learning and practicing. In time you could acquire the necessary skills and tools to be a successful trader. Today it’s more accessible via the World Wide Web, so you can easily participate.
Some traders I talked to say that it could take month (maybe even more) until you start making some real money. As I wrote above you should start by learning. You can read book, read online and take courses and so forth. After you do that (or even while you learn) you can start paper trading (doing as if you are really trading but without real orders. just write on paper what you would have done for real if you were trading with real money.) or trading with a demo account, the later is probably more convenient and you can find on the Internet forex brokers that will allow you to open a demo account.
