      You canalbalized your own self and post. :lmao2: You got laughs and likes for the "newbie" and "Forex" in same sentence and wanted more for the jeans sketch. Nothing more funny than "newbie" and "Forex" in same sentence.

        Actually, I am letting the machine handle the bulk as it is doing exceptionally well. I am thinking of just using 5-10K to dabble a bit and see where is goes. I am doing some training to get a feel and I am liking it thus far. I can use a demo account once trained and see if it is something that I can do or not. I was more curious if anyone here has tried it.

          We know, we are just having fun with you. I would never tell anyone what to do or not do. Just like I would never have some automated thing do anything for me or use a fund, if that works for others then great. All we are saying is that FOREX is filled with the pros and big boys and as former commodity futures/stock trader, I know first hand that you can lose a shytton of money is less than 2 seconds. The demos and simulators are great, but I will just say the heart beats a bit faster when it is real and bullets are coming from all angles. Good luck.

            Good God, I have been on this site for 3 years. (as Ox has just pointed out and that I don't post enough) I know I am pretty much going to hear Sh*t on just about anything that I post. :)

            Depending on how training goes (still have a ton of information to pour through) and then the demo account. If I think I can handle the bullets, I will give it a try. And I need my heart to beat a bit faster....my Dr. said so!

              Your “training” will likely be a couple of “signals” telling you when to get in, and when to get out. Ask yourself why someone would provide you with valuable signals for a relatively small fee when they could easily use the “signals” themselves and make a fortune, as FOREX markets are very scalable.

              the answer? They wouldn’t. Your a minnow in a sea of sharks with multi-billion dollars backing them up.

              And as a newbie, if you’re foolish enough to trade on margin, you can quickly find your self on the hook for a whole lot more than the $10k you thought you were risking.

              I traded Forex for a short time, and got away with minor losses. I already had a good understanding of technical trading, reading charts, and recognizing formations. My neighbor traded Forex, relying on trading software that produced alerts. He knew very little about investing, and nothing about anything besides buying stocks and funds. He lost almost everything he owned.

                Ox says I have to post 10X this month. So, here is number 8.

                I hear what you are saying. Once I find something that peaks my interest, I am usually stuck on it till I get bored or something else takes precedent. (yes, maybe just a tad ADD)

                You are going to jump on me even more, I am not paying for my training. I am doing a FREE education on Forex Trading. Hate to spend any money on training when I can just lose it in one trade!

                    FVKKING awesome. Love it when someone knows Tom Vu. The info-mercial inventor as far as I am concerned. Anytime I see or hear that name, which is rare, makes me LOL. The king of the 3 am info-mercial.

                    Seeing that clown on those boats with all those girls listening to him scream: "I Tom Vu I come Vietnam no nothing now have all this You too can have this, I'm Tom Vu" :lmao2:

                      Even In Living Color and SNL did parodies.. I remember seeing the actual commercials on TV when we were at UF.

                      Oh, and like classic music, I saw to it that Tommy Vu mockery was passed on another generation... Son #2 and I make Tommy Vu jokes all the time. :lol:

                        As funny as he was on those Info's, gotta hand it to him. Tom Vu was something of an innovator. Made me laugh then and makes me laugh now. Tom Vu is still around playing poker often in Vegas. They showed him one day on TV in the World Series of Poker and Norman Chad was like you and I in describing Tom Vu.

                        Without Tom Vu there is no Billy Mays or Sham-WOW guy!

                        But back to the thread topic. Taking the Tom Vu seminar or rolling the dice in Forex, the ending is probably going to be the same!

                          Not sure why you are laughing at my mentor Tommy, he showed me how to make money with his program. And, he also taught me poker. He is my Forex trainer!

                          Just got a contact on my house in FL. I will have even more money to throw away in the Forex arena! :)
