I have never invested in the forex market myself. It seems way to risky, too complex, and too many factors at play for me to invest anything. I usually recommend not investing in it yourself.

Are you using TD Ameritrade or some other online platform? Forex is intriguing. In general Forex trading seems highly speculative, but TD Ameritrade offers around $200,000 of play money to learn the rules and get your footing. I think I'll try this just for kicks.

I would advise thoroughly doing your research before you venture into forex trading. It is very complicated and competitive.
