Yes, you can make money trading forex, and its if you are a beginner trader and you get into forex trading and start making money right away, you should be very careful to let ego overcome you. You can make a fortune trading currencies in the short term but soon this will lead to a bad psychology and trading discipline problems and you will end up blowing up your forex trading account.
Do not dive in to make money at the starting point. If you are a new trader, you should take time to understand each and every step of forex trading by experiencing those your own. This is how I learn trading when I start my trading with ECNCAPITAL.COM.
