Wow! what is (not) going on with this thread??? Lots of answers and hardly any likes at all! Wake up you all, if you read this forum then you obviously like Forex - so speak up and tell us all why!!!
Although this thread seems a bit lifeless, Forex itself is far from passive. It is perhaps one of the most contrarian, emotive and lively activities you could ever get involved in - apart from maybe mountaineering or potholing. For example: Forex can be both:
Fulfilling and yet Frustrating
Opportunistic and yet Obsessive
Rewarding and yet Ruination
Enthralling and yet Endangering
Xstatic and yet Xasperating
So what else is pulling you to forex, apart from the already amply mentioned promise of freedom and riches (which, it seems, for most people remain, unfortunately, on the other side of the rainbow)?
