absolute minimum


Felix i have a quick question i been watching your videos for a while now and i have saved some money to join your service , and i will practice on a demo account for 3 months b4 going into my real account which only has $23 in it hehe (i never traded any of felix signals with that account it was all my fault) , once i accomplish that i want to add some money to my account but you recommend to start a regular account with $10,000 which i dont have , so in your opinion and only your opinion for me to make a profit of $500 a month ($299 for you and $201 for me ) what do you think is the absolute minimum.

thank you for your help


Hi Rayray,

I see that your post has been unanswered for a few days so although I'm not Felix maybe I can help you.

$10k should be the minimum however at least $1000 and only trade 1:1 leverage until you are consistently making pips.

My guess is you lost your first account due to too high leverage being applied.

I'm sure if Felix were here he would agree :)

Hope this helps - Happy Trading! :)
