Hello Everyone

Trading forex can't be more affordable or easier in today's world, anyone can do it. You do not need to be a financial expert, or watch CNBC/Blomberg TV every morning, noon or night, or even buy/read the financial times every day to see how the market is going. With the introduction of forex trading over the internet recently, everyone from housewife's to professional traders mingle together in the forex business.

Forex brokers like FXOpen even provide you with the technical analyses to better your skills, but not only that, FXOpen is one among a few brokers that provide a forum like this, not only for support but also to help "newbies" learn the technical side of the business to better yourself.

From a few affordable $'s to millions, everyone can join in and start trading from the legal minimum age limit to the old grandmother like myself, no real knowledge is needed if you're willing to invest within your means and learn as you go along.

I'm a housewife aged between 50 -75 who discovered this forum/forex by accident while browsing the internet to find something to do to past the day in, after a serious car accident left my near house bound, and I've never looked back since.

How did you discover forex ?

What age group do you belong in ?
18 - 25
26 - 50
51 - 75
76 over

Good luck

Guys ,anybody can trade forex provided you have the intention and interest of forex. All that is needed is to know how the forex market operates including the various technical analysis indicators available, the various trading strategies and risk management tools available for trading. Their is no restriction as to who can trade forex except for the fact that you need to be 18 years and above to open a trading account.

Nowadays you can trade in different ways- you can trade against many traders in the world in a trading game e.g in a tournament or 1on1 games. This games is really amazing, fun and profitable too.
