Thanks for this detail post about taking Forex as a business. It needs time. A trader needs to be very consistent for at least a year before taking such decision. Meanwhile, it is recommended that he maintains a part time job. Once he finds himself confident and enough money in his bank from Forex trading, he then might take a decision.

I've considered this but there's so much that goes into it. It just seems very difficult and I'm not sure if I'll ever get there. I may focus on another business venture instead.

I think running a forex business is very different from other businesses. You need to have good forex knowledge to make sure you are properly catering to the needs of your clients.
You are right. In fact, running a trading brokerage is very different from trading.

What would make a good trader think they would automatically be good at a totally different job? And if the trader were really really good at trading, why would they even want to do a different job?
