A few questions before we get started...

Is Forex profitable?

Forex trading can be very lucrative, if you know what you are doing. Most lose money though as they don't take the time to educate themselves and learn from someone that is profitable. Too many people trade Forex by 'jumping in the deep end', which may work in some areas of life but not in Forex trading.

Is it possible to become an independent Forex trader?

Most traders work for some sort of financial institution, such as a bank, some sort of hedge fund or are independent (retail trader). It is definitely possible to become a full-time retail trader, but for most people, trading can become a money making hobby - the step from giving-up the day job to full-time trading is usually too big for most people.
