If it is a simple YES or NO answer, that you looking for, I suggest to set up a poll for this, easier to just vote ;)

in one word to answer: YES.
but i am afraid this matter is much more complicated, and it is all depend on individual's needs, and equity.

the first question one should ask is how much commitment one is willing to put in.
the effect is the reward to earn the money.
overtime you will see the reward.
never put the reward first then work into it.
you will find that you are chasing the reward.
take a small step first.

Can you earn a living from Forex ALONE?

My answer would be no. Forex should however be a part of an investment portfolio in the high risk section. If you want to be financially independent, trade Forex sure, but also diversify into things like real estate and other less profitable but more secure investments as a backup.

Well, I personally think we can make living from it but the only thing is that one need to have very sound knowledge regarding it. A person with good amount of experience, sound knoeldge and sharp vision/brain can do wonders with forex.

You can get Funds managers but risk are a part of trading. So losses can alway occur.
