Agreed. I really can't imagine why would anyone not experienced enoung to trade with his own money decides to risk with someone else's. Seems really backwards.

Trading IS gambling -- don't fool yourself, or let anybody tell you differently.
But...it's Gambling with Much better odds, if you know what you're doing.

I am treat forex only as part time business only, so I am not too much relying from forex profit becuse yes in my experience making profit still can't stable, but if hear certain trader already can making good profit monthly, it's sign if forex opened for everyone but not everyone suitable with forex, this not gambling which only reyling with luck but need skill
