Question The Forex Thread

Who here trades currencies on the forex? I am looking to diversify my portfolio, which is made up of common stock, my company's discounted stock, and index funds. I want to venture out into precious metals, and foreign currencies, but don't really know where to get started with the latter.

I have been doing research on and off about it, but I always value the opinions of the esteemed members of the Boxing Scene Lounge Society.


Anyone have any advice / experience / thoughts on forex trading and investing?

Put your money into a finance company's construction fund. Or if you have any connections to real estate developers get in on a syndicated mortgage with their other investors. This will pay even better than a construction fund. Up here guys are getting between 9-18 percent returns. The housing market up here is insane and very stable. There is little risk. The market in San Fran is crazy as well although I don't know much about new construction there.

I used to **** around with forex but you really have to be on top of things to make good money. There is a ton of money in it but you really need to be well researched to make it work. It's very tempting because you don't even need a lot of start-up capital for it. Make sure you research the broker you choose to use and ask if they have a simulated account available. You'll be able to try it out without using any real money. This will allow you to see if what you're trying can actually be successful. Forex trading is extremely time consuming. Unless you're a day trader I wouldn't bother with it. I wouldn't suggest forex for long term investing, it's okay, but the real money in it is in the short term transactions. If you're not willing to do that I'd suggest putting your money into something like what I suggested above.

yea, I am not into simulated accounts too much, it is a valuable tool but I consider even simulated losses real losses.

You make a great point about real estate, however if I get into real estate it would probably be in high growth areas of texas and Colorado or other states, not California.

I might also get into REIT's.

Where is "up here"? Canada?

The construction fund angle sounds interesting.
