FXClub.com Tip: Trading in any market is inherently risky, and as the Forex market is primarily speculative - there is always risk of losing money.
As in any trading, never invest money that you can't afford to lose! The high degree of volatility in the foreign exchange market means that you run the risk of losing your entire investment. This is why it is an excellent idea to set up a practice account or demo account, and read about the markets thoroughly before investing real currency. Companies like FXClub make for easy forex because they let you practice before delving into the real market.
There is also the risk associated with trading on an online platform -- it is wise to make sure that the platform you choose is very secure.
Last but not least, there is the risk of falling into a Forex scam. Be sure to check out your broker completely before signing up, or sending out any deposits.
