Hi Becky, and welcome to the forum.
There are huge numbers of US forex-traders (including some here, though I'm not one of them): some of the big US forex brokerages have tens of thousands of accounts, and hundreds of millions being traded.
That's something, in my opinion, which is best avoided at least until you're very sure that you can be steadily and consistently profitable from manual trading, and have a sure-fire edge over the market - otherwise it becomes a huge distraction from paths to profitability, and typically the reason for people not ever developing steadily and consistently profitable trading.
Just my perspective, having seen that fate befall so many people in forums and elsewhere, over the years.
(Actually, probably not "just my perspective" at all: I would think it's the perspective of at least 99% of people who are actually making a living through forex trading. :33: )
