A little while ago I decided that I would try investing on the Forex.  I had a little money that I had received from an inheritance, so I put that money to work on the markets.  Being new to currency trading, I decided to do a little research about investing on the Forex markets.

There was a bit of a learning curve.

But I worked away at figuring it out, and with time, I finally made my first trade.  It was a bit of a rollercoaster, but once I calmed down a bit and reminded myself that trading was all about numbers and that emotions didn’t belong in any investment decision.

I made money on that first investment.

Since that time, I have been reviewing my portfolio twice per week to see how it is doing.  I know that some of you out there will think that I am not checking regularly enough, but with my busy lifestyle, I just don’t have time to commit to more than that.  Thankfully I am checking it regularly enough that I am still making money, and since it is doing better than my mutual fund portfolio, I am happy.

But there is always room to learn more.

So, I take some time each week to learn a bit more about Forex investing, and I hope by years end I am a lot more knowledgeable and experienced than I am now.  Once I am confident in my investing skills, I am planning to put more of my retirement portfolio into the currency markets – I’d like to retire before I am forty.
