I posted this on the r/Forex subreddit and wanted to post it here:
I think there needs to be more documentation, if there is any, on success stories in Forex. I’ve been looking for the last day or so and can’t find any from a retail traders perspective. Like with CIS and BNF in the stock market. I just watched videos on George Soros and Stanley Druckenmiller who made $1 billion dollars from I believe buying the marc and shorting the pound.
But I have had a very difficult time finding examples of retail traders who are successful. Theres people on youtube who claim they are, but theres suspicion that they are just scammers who make money selling courses.
Please share yours if you have one or point to another if you know of one. Im trying to see if trying to trade in the forex market is even worth my time. I’m trying to make thousands a week not 100s. And I want to see if its possible to make millions from this.
Edit: It’d be preferable if people could provide proof and/or point to specific examples rather than just saying they heard of somebody’s success. I read a bit about the Inner Circle Trader and on their site it said his net worth is estimated to be 25 million; a highly successful multi million dollar trader. Idk if its true but I want to find stories like this and proof of them.
