The Forex market is in itself not that risky. The way you invest is what makes it risky. Movement in currency is usually not volatile and dramatic. A country’s currency does not often suddenly drop 5% overnight as stocks can. There are usually warning signals and economic news, as well as other economic factors. If you go to a bank and buy a EUR 1,000 and leave it your drawer, its value will not change much overnight it certainly won’t vanish. A 1% move in the currency against you means you will lose EUR 10.
Forex becomes risky when using excessive leverage. If you open up a forex account and buy the same EUR 1,000 using leverage, you can now buy 1:100 meaning EUR 100,000, then a 1 % move against you will wipe you out your deposit.
1:100 leverage you lose EUR 1,000 – your whole deposit
1:50 leverage you lose EUR 500- half of your deposit
1:25 leverage you lose /EUR 250 – a quarter of your deposit
Sure, the reverse is also true; you could make that amount. The thing is most people get greedy and use too much leverage to have a few bad trades and then start losing everything.
