I am a forex trader. My forex experience started 6 years ago when I invested my 500 dollars in the forex market. After losing all of the initial sum I reconsidered my trading and developed a succesful trend trading system. That's when I became profitable. I came back to forex market with a friend of my investing his 4000 dollars. We tripled that amount in a matter of one year trading swings and trends. After that I started trading on my own and developed two more strategies: range trading strategy and news trading strategy. Those enabled me to have profit on a daily basis. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2ZbENbz6Qs

It is very hard or impossible to time the broad market consistently — there are no famous investors that got rich by consistently knowing what the broad market would do next. This only makes sense, as there are just too many variables in the broad market. But there are many famous investors who got rich analyzing individual securities, and this is where you should put your focus. You can get an edge in individual securities.
