Very well written.Yes, anyone from any walk of life can trade in Fx, that's one of the few things that sets FX apart from all other fields. And yes, making money by trading is not as easy as some of the sales page hype would have you believe - you have to really work at it.
So, if put in some grunt work, you should be able to trade successfully.
Yes, I know what you mean. Social trading has been on the rise. I think it is not worth all the hype and if traders do not wish to trade themselves they should go with PAMM accounts. On the other hand I guess social trading is well received by newbies as they can follow their favorite trader and put it on cruise control. Takes the fun out of if for seasoned traders, but I understand the benefits of it.Thanks mate, glad you appreciate it and yes, wish the newbies would spend some time doing the work. And yakking about fx and newbies, just started thinking if the copy trading phenomenon seems to be spreading since more and more brokerages have started to offer similar apps..
