I agree 100%!
I have done a lot of reading, demo, live trading, crazy live profits (options) and even crazier live losses (2X my profits! ) ground it down to $7 and TDAmeritrade keeps the account open. That’s not enough for a brokers fee!
Sorry to ramble in your thread…
The thing I like about forex is that there is no expiration. Trading small lots .01 I can hold on to that forever (I know there is swap to consider etc…) but it doesn’t lose value as the days, weeks, months go buy.
I look back and all the advice and warnings that I had read about in books, forums and heard at lectures and meet-ups about new traders … that wasn’t going to happen to me… it all came true!
Now, for me, it’s steady as she goes, a day at a time and think before I trade.
