I do know someone who's like a hedge fund manager and can trade with an assured 85% gain, with contracts and so on. He's been trading since 16. I've been in a forex trading company last year and unluckily, I left because that company and my mentors were highly ineffective and I was scared to get a lot of clients and lose all their money. But right now, I just opened an account with FXCM since it was one of the brokers my friend recommended me. But I plan on investing on my friend's hedge fund by January, so I will let you know. FYI, as he told me, if I'll invest 100K, it can grow up to 500K or more within a year depending on market volatility, particularly gold and crude oil. As traders, we all know that gradual move between conservative and aggressive trading anyway. Happy trading!
