Yes there are many consistent traders, I say trader not winner, cause a winner is a gambler in my opinion.
Yes, there are several rich forex traders.
I would say 2-3 years of trading to become consistent.
I started, same as probably everyone else, the lure of quick easy money, I think it was an infommercial on late night TV that had some automated trading system where I could be a millionare overnight or some such nonsense like that… ( No i didnt buy it, lol, but came very close)
So I decided to find out about FX and that was about 3 year ago and the journey is still going… and once your hooked into FX, your hooked…
Funny enough I just started investing in stocks and saw an ad by FXCM emailed to me advertising free $25 account. So I thought what the hell I’ll try it, I lost it but was hooked, I’m not consitent, I’ve only been trading for half a year, I’d say right now I’m breaking even if not making a little bit a money but I trade super small amounts slowly working my account up. I risk something like .1% of my account per trade unless I’m very confident of trade. Oh and I’m 22 btw, full time college student
