If you where giving the opportunity to trade in Forex, will you trade or you use the money for other things? For example, you don’t know anything about Forex, you don’t understand how it move. In addition, a friend of your came and give you 3000$ to trader in Forex. Since you don’t understand how the market move, will you trade in Forex or use the money to do other things, like buying your needs.
For me as I know that I don’t have knowledge and experience about the market, I will look for where to learn Forex and after learning, I will trading in Forex, In addition, use the money to invest so that I will be making profit from the money. Because, if I just use them to buy things for myself there will be no gain at the end.
