    I have lost so much money in my first years in forex that I would never think about doing it instead of normal job for living.
    You can make money but you need regular income from elsewhere. Forex is good for fun.

    I would hands down take Forex before a 9-5 job working for somebody you don't care about. Work on yourself, not for somebody else.

    I know some professional traders who's developing their forex business just fine, and some of them even quit their job. What's not to like to grow your own business? You can arrange your schedule the way you want, and as long as their is internert , you can do your business worldwide.
     
  7. \I like the theory of forex trading for a living

    That`s good but there will be a lot of hard work, sweat and money till (or if) you achieve it.

    Stress levels certainly go up when you do it for a living

    I enjoy both, but am lucky to work my regular job part time and like what i do, but when my bank is large enough, my intention is to trade full time.

    Usually forex is more attractive than normal job. It gives you freedom and it CAN be much more profitable than normal day jobs. But Forex can degrade your social relations. You can stay inside house and spend your time by the computer or be outside in an office or a shop and talk to real people and do business with them. It’s the matter of preferences.

  14. There is only Forex, Forex is life... The day i finally quit my job was the best feeling, had worked on two years working full time and self employed trading. The jump was freeing and now mainly invest in rental property and Forex. :)
