I still can’t understand why retail traders are involved in Forex. It’s not their place and should not be in their interest. Forex is the foreign exchange of currencies, which is the business of big companies that shuffle around money. There is no technical structure in Forex and all movement in short term is random and long term is based on fundamentals. Why do retail traders keep thinking (day)trading forex can ever be profitable?
After calling out his friend for turning $10k into $36k in two weeks. I got a DM from this “professional”. Then I checked the mega thread and saw Forex is usually an MLM. I didn't say anything about anyone's mom.

Lost around 26k USD so far in forex. Is it not for me?
Hi guys, It is a sinking feeling to know that I have lost around 26k USD in forex till date. This is almost 12% of my current net worth so it is SIGNIFICANT. I understand most retail traders lose money in forex, so shall I pull out of it?
If Forex is not a sure thing, why are people still doing it?
Hi Guys So I am A newbie in this I’ve been learning for 2 months since the lock down started in my country (South Africa). Ive been enjoying it so far. I’ve been wanting to get into forex trading for a very long time but there’s a lot of things that have put me off it. I decided to bite the bullet since I’d be having all this time on my hands and decide to learn it. I have nothing to lose yet. But I see so many people hoping to gain some sort of life from forex trading cause it’s all they have left in a situation where their backs are up against the wall. They aren’t expecting to get rich from it but to just have a decent life from it (like I am) but I see sooo many comments of how difficult it is to even just make it a tad bit which worries me as well. I’ve seen people in it for so many years and they are still no where close to the consistency of where they’re hoping to be. My question is, why are you all still in it despite having been in it for so long not seeing the results you hoped for. What keeps bringing you back and trying again? I thankfully have a mentor who shares his signals with me but I know there will be a time where I’ll have to go at it alone... which worries me. I understand my psychology has to be run like a tight ship to be able to handle this industry but what is the healthiest amount realization do you have to hold on to. Because you can be all tight ship in your psychology but isn’t there also a thin line between confidence in your strategy and then being delusional?? I look forward to your response. Keep well and stay safe during these times.
What are the most unregulated forms of investing? I know forex is pretty unregulated, but does anything top forex? I don’t know much about options or futures, but I assume options are pretty regulated, am I wrong? I feel like futures would be pretty unregulated, but I’m honestly just guessing here

Forex is mentally getting the better of me. Do I quit?
Hello everyone. I apologize for barging into this one with an irrelevant topic. I hope someone can give this a read and an honest reply as I really don't have any clue to who I can talk about this. I'm a 23 y old who was fortunate to have a mother save up some cash over the past years to get me started once I finished university with a balance of 5000EUR. I worked for about a year, spend money, save money. At the end of the year, getting me around 12.000EUR. I got into forex after an advert that I read about a brokerage that has high swaps but freely helps you manage your account and helps you make trades. I put in 200EUR, and fairly quickly I started to see it grow by 10EUR per trade. The hype was on, and my broker suggested me to move to 1000. I listened and I dumped another 1000 on it (because I would receive an amazing 1000EUR credit on MT4) putting my balance at 2500 something. Now the trades were going up by 100 and I was on Cloud 9... Not so long after that, my broker came with an amazing Idea "THE RISK FREE TRADE DOCUMENT" I was very suspicious at first. But in the end I followed him because I didnt really have a reason not to so far. "Put in 3000 and withdraw within 2 weeks and we cover any losses". So I did it. I know have an account with 4500EUR of my money in. So far, every trade, that this man made on my account, turned positive. But for one main reason, he doesnt use stop loss. Fast forward to the end of the contract. I still have an open position. Its pretty bad, -8000EUR in BTC. But some excuse is made up and apparantly he made a mistake causing the contract to be invalid. So far my account is on +20000EUR so it would suck to lose it. Confident as he is that BTC will go back up we leave it sitting there. More trades go by, and slowly we start indeed recovering the -8000. Fastforward The attack on OIL reserves drives USOIL up immensly, my broker buys a big lot and in 1 trade we make 15.000EUR profit. Im shaking. Dont know what to do. I asked multiple times by now to withdraw some money to my bankaccount. But due to open trades (the -8000) the financial department refuses. Fastforward We open a trade on sell on NAS100. The trade goes into buy direction. 1K loss, 2K loss, 5k loss, 10K loss, 20K loss (as my account is still positive, he holds on to the point that it would be a shame to throw away all the money by closing the trade, which we worked for so hard, so we leave it open. ... 40.000 loss, and my account is officially in negative margin, big panic from my broker HE NEEDS MONEY, A NEW DEPOSIT, AT LEAST 5K AND I RECEIVE 10K CREDIT he says. Scared as I am, and still convinced that he really knows his trades I follow him. From my 12K initially in my bank, I have now 9000+ in two accounts, because that way ( he says) im always able to withdraw. ( the 10K credit has been provided do account 1 to keep it in positive margin) - Account 1: balance 40.000 credit: 20.000 open trades: -55.000 - Account 2: balance 5.000 - - Fastforward to last friday. Another trade goes south and to save everything he wanted to do exactly the same. Again I listened, as he told me I can "withdraw this whenever I want and need to pay bills this or next week" I cough up my last 3,500EUR I saved up extra until now. I have 900 left in my account on the bank. Its now monday, I need to pay bills this week, the trade position that went bad actually recovered and broke even with swap, and STILL he asked me to wait once more to withdraw the 3.500EUR until tomorrow morning. - Account 1: balance 40.000 credit: 29.000 open trades: -55.000 - Account 2: balance 8500 - - The last months were extatic, but especially very depressing the last weeks. Im starting to feel incredibly ashamed "did I fall for a sleek salesman?". "What will my girlfriend say about this?" "Can the situation still be saved?" "Can I actually withdraw from my second account?" "What if my account goes negative now?" Experts, should I just close each and every open trade, take the 5000EUR loss and recover the other 8000EUR? I really dont know if my mental can take these fake promises any longer, in the hope that it recovers. The thing that haunts me the most is explaining to my mrs. She knows about the initial 4.500. Not the other 8000. Thank you some much for your time.
