I am just learning about the forex markets. And I was wondering if anyone here trades those markets? I was hoping to find someone who trades sucessfully and get real life tips and tricks. I have gotten a couple books and have done a ton of research on the net. Some of it seems to work, some of it doesn't. I am also looking for sites on the web that have, I guess you'd call them, financial calandars. Places that list dates and times that important financial news will be released. I was doing fairly well with my demo account until that last couple of days. My demo is just about to expire so I was going for broke and try to make it big. And it didn't work. I placed trades that were really risky that I would have never done with my own money. But it was fun to see how much risk there actually could be in 'worse comes to worst' situation.
