FOREX = Foreign Currency Exchange. If I wanted to be a financial adviser - I would have taken the course, and gotten the piece of paper. But instead, I am a computer programmer, and a part-time retail foreign currency exchange trader. So my trading performance is not to be taken as a look into the future, it is historical and your results will differ. In other words - there is no connection to future performance based on past performance. I think you get the idea... The law says that I cannot make any income claims, nor can I give you financial advice. So, I am NOT giving advice. I am allowed to voice my personal opinions, as they apply to me. So please seek professional financial advice about any money decisions that you make for yourself. I am not a financial advisor nor planner.
My returns are mostly between 20% to 80% per year. Most retail Forex traders struggle to make a profit at all. I am no exception. 60% returns per year, are considered excellent. I strive for 5% a month. Sometimes it's +30%, sometimes it's -30%. It's a real roller coaster ride. That's why it's not for everyone. Low risk, and consistency is what determines a real trader, not massive returns with massive risk, which is most of what you see advertised on Forex sites.
> Here < is an example of too much risk, it's one of the Robots that I have been working on with the creator. It has massive returns, and massive risk. Huge returns almost always has huge risks. As you can see, it takes big risks, and has big returns. And it can also have huge losses. It's not for everyone, and I do not suggest it for beginners. The "trick" is to take money out, before it loses big. There are many other robots, but that's one of the riskiest ones I have seen that does make money....albeit for a short time.
Amazingly, Crypto Currencies have provided amazing, and excellent returns in 2017. Not so much in 2018. Cryptos are even more risky than Forex, in my opinion. I have many thoughts on them, so please ask me. Sorry, I can't predict the future, so please don't ask me what I think will happen in the future. Generally - there are huge risks with cryptos, and nothing is certain at all in this new asset class. The exchanges are dodgy, the sales pitches from ICO's are sound, but eventually are more dodgy. It's a real Wild West right now with Cryptos.
