Default How much money for trading

How much money would you like to have in your Forex trading account to quite your job and be a full time job trader.I think if you are newbie then first time you need to learn about forex .because its not time to deposit huge invest.and after that when you feel you can trade and understand market then you can invest.

I think that quite from our main job is not good idea. forex is very risky.
All of my friend that trade in liteforex, roboforex,insta, etc do not encourage to quite from their job.

It is depend on which account you will opened in a broker.
If you open real account you must open about $1000. If you open micro account, you can deposit just $1..
Let's open in NDD account in liteforex, you will get the best account there.

I think Forex knowledge is much important than money. Because if a traders have huge trading knowledge with small capital. Then he can make money by his small capital with small capital. But without knowledge a big capital is valueless.

I seem money is less important then Forex knowledge. So which traders have good trading knowledge they can earn from their small capital. But a trader do not enough knowledge then big capital it is enough for him to earn money.

I think the $ 100 is enough to open a live trading account. using leberage lot 0.01 and 1: 500 helps us to trade with the correct ratio with no trading over lot

Yes, I also using leverage 1:500 in my broker.with speed of execution and low spreads are needed by traders to do scalping to achieve maximum profit. this is usually the main thing when traders decide to choose the right broker for scalping. based on my experience, Armada Markets gives traders especially for scalpers with very good platforms.

Just use huge leverage in forex trading. 1:500 or 1:1000 is really good for newbie and will make your account far away from MC..

I think all Forex traders can earn money by their trading knowledge. Therefore, the expert Forex traders can earn huge money by trading. On the other hand, the poor skilled Forex traders are loser. Learning is the best way to earn money.

I started with 3 K$ on Hotforex Micro.. At starts I lost 1700$ trading with unreasonable high lot size, then switched to more careful and discretionary appoach and recovered for 4 month. Year or more I trade only in profit with them - 700-1500$ monthly...

Forex knowledge is much important than trading capital. Without proper knowledge high trading capital is valueless. I see maximum new Forex depend on their trading capital while experts are always depend on their knowledge.

There are many type of accounts offered by different brokers. I think $100 is good for new trader who deposit first time. I use the classic account in Armada Markets by using deposit $ 100

It depends on how much risk you want to take in the market. Also you are just investing or need to make monthly money for your expenses does matters in it. If you have good amount then you can start with low risky pairs.

You should learn a lot on how to trade Forex. Get enough of knowledge and practice, start earning consistently and only after that is it possible to think about quitting you job.

a 1:1000 leverage might be good for micro accounts and traders that know what they are doing, but its kinda risky, im good with a 1:500 and taking it slow with micro lots with hotforex

It depends on the budget you have for trading. There is no particular amount you can take and jump into the market. You have to make perfect strategy and then decide that how much investment you want to do in trading.

My broker requires only $50 to start trading. But I think you should have at least $300 and trade stable pairs to avoid margin call.

The Investment is Minimal:
To get involved in currency trading, you do not need to invest a lot of cash upfront. Many trading options are available for a small investment, some as low as a few hundred dollars. This allows new traders in particular to get involved, learn the process, and risk very little. To trade in the forex market, you need to determine your risk limit, and not invest above that amount

You can start trading with minimal amount but if you can invest a good sum then you can manage your trade better but its not necessary.

It is very much important to gather most accurate basic knowledge for opening a live account in a proper way. In my trading life, I have done Forex Beginners course and beginners video for acquiring exact fundamental knowledge from GCI . By means of this knowledge, I have opened my live trading properly. So, my trading life is very comfort and security.

I don't really think I would ever quit my job to become a full time trader since for me Forex is just a hobby, an investment to get an extra income.

For money, more much of your money, your bullet to shoot the market will more much and your margin will stay safely. I suggest to use your 2% from your balance. its safe for your live in forex trade. I always adopt this way while trade in roboforex, liteforex, and mayzus broker.

I guess the topic says how much money is need?! jeezz.

different brokers offer different minimum deposits, as much as 5-50 dollars with hotforex i think oanda offers as low as 1 buck and so on, but for starters a traders should always start with a small amount for testing, check out the platform the execution, and other aspects of the broker like withdrawal and the fees that comes with it. before he may proceed with a bigger amount. i started with about 150 bucks 3 years ago yeah i blew it but it was not too ainful.

I wont forus on doubling my money in one month, 500 is a good number to start with but its safer to take it easy and not rush things!! usually people would say just risk 2% per trade, thats 10 dollars but people would go over that and try making a better profit as long as its contained!

using 2% of balance for each trade is really safer sir. You can also use 5% from your balance, it's common used by trader. But, for me, sometimes when the market is on great moment, i always use 20% from my balance in Classic account of Liteforex broker, so i can get much profit with.
