Every trader has a story of how he/she became interested in forex. What’s yours?
My father was/is a stock trader so always had an interest in the financial markets and charting.
When someone mentioned Forex to me in my early 20’s as an alternative market to shares I had never heard of it, started googling then got sucked into the massive world that is currency trading.
In Australia the stock market opens from 10am-5pm so I initially fell in love with the fact that I could trade any time of the day! Ironically I now only trade in a small time window anyway but you learn these things !
No story, just one word: Money
I think the word interested is wrong, you find FX and then the challenges begin, you start trying to find out how this dark art really works.
In trading you can get a lot of knowledge plus money.
Learning something new attracts me and when it comes with earning money, who will not get into Forex trading?
I always loved to learn something new and back then, forex trading was one of the interesting topic to learn and I got heavily invested into that and been trading ever since then
