How much money should you have in your FOREX acount in order to earn an income?

Question by ej105: How much money should you have in your FOREX acount in order to earn an income?
I am planning to add funds to my online FOREX account and I am wondering what would be the appropriate amount of money to start off with in the account to where I can generate enough revenue to earn an income off my profits. I know you need at least $ 1000 just to play in the market but that amount is not enough to make money on. What would I need to have in my account to where I can start compounding the little profits that I make here and there?

You should have at least $ 100,000.00 in it.

That way you don’t have the extreme risk of using their 50 or 100 to one margin where you lose your entire investment if a currency drops only 1 or 2%.

FOREX Margin, just say NO!
