How risky is forex trading?

Although forex trading is risky, it does not mean you can profit from it. Every business has its own risks. What matters is how you manage or avoid the risks. This means forex trading risks can be managed and controlled. Once you learn to manage your risks you will be able to increase more odds/chances to your side and surely profit from it.

Forex Trading is risky for reasons being;
It is all about speculation/ prediction. You are not guaranteed of success. The chances of winning and losing the amount risked are 50:50.
Secondly, you have no control over the market behaviour. Here i mean, you cannot tell the market what to do.The market is always right.
It is highly volatile. Any mistake, your account is likely to suffer.
Last but not least, Forex trading highly induce the psychological emotions since you have to trade your own money. Practically, you are quick to attach emotions such as greed, fear,disappointments, regrets which is so frustrating and may lead to poor health in case you lose large sums of money.
However, you should know there isn’t any business which has no risks involved at all. The moment you decide to invest your money into any business, you have already take a risk and it doesn’t stop at that. You have to always expect risks to happen as long as the business exist. Risks cannot to be avoided but can be controlled or minimised.
So what do you do?
You have to come up with a risk management strategy/plan, so that you know what to do in case things don’t go as expected.
The same to Forex trading, with risk management, you will be able to minimise risks of losses and profit from trading. Train and Practice Risk Management Techniques and trade as you have Planned.
