Good point Tyrone.
That is a solid truth, in fact most loose money as most traders are part of hedge funds that have a small target and mainly operate in the stock markets, it is far easier than FX and there salary is set and they get bonused on the funds performance, they get a management fee and all sorts these are hefty enough to cover bonuses.
The interbank liquidity pool is full of rotten individuals who have successfully connived with Central banks as well as Governments to rip you off. Since trading in the Currency market is mainly done by the liquidity providers like Barclay Cap, etc who know exactly where the market is going and surely they will never loose.
The other breed of trader from proprietary desks will always favour commodity trading precisely because they can actually profit as this is a pure market and only has one manipulator, the large operators who can only do this a couple of times before they themselves get crushed. These can claim a profit.
In my opinion anyone looking to trade less than 100k in the liquidity pool must really understand the intention of the market makers and central banks not forgetting brokers. You can potentially make large gains on a daily basis compounded to the 100% mark year on year, several retail traders net $2000 a week and more from 50k balances and always diversifying into other instruments but these tend to know more than just Moving averages and Fibonacci or a couple of economic releases.
Not impossible but requires intense study of the inner circle but since most are intent on trading as a hobby and just analyzing Moving averages, etc well they all fair game.
In truth we are the oil for the pistons. My advice put the hours into reading about the market and trade your own cash. At least you get to decide how it gets taken.
