I am 18 years old and I am considering trading currencies as a home based business. I’ve had practice with ordinary spot forex and find it okay.

    Use currency options as a hedge for your spot trades. Don’t use it for pure speculation. Understand more about options before you try.

    It really depends if you are dealing with long term or short term trades. IF your dealing with the 10min charts or 1 hour charts there is no point in buying forex options. If you want to learn more about options I would go to . It helped a lot.

    Options are good for hedging and for longer term.

    Currencies tend to trend long term and be volatile in the short term.

    Have a look at this chart from finviz & see if you agree.

    I only trade currencies using long term call options. Why?

    1. I have a known level of exposure (I can’t loose any more than I put in)

    2. I feel its lower risk, as I am trend trading – trends can also revert.

    3. It is definitely lower risk than spot trading, as I am not trading on margin – I can still loose everything though.

    4. I’ve had a few friends take up currency trading (spot), do quite well for a bit then have a bad run, only one out of 6 is still in the game.

    5. It suits my personality. If you can handle the swings, spot trading might be the thing for you.

    Open up a demo account and see how you go.

    Give your self time to learn before putting your own money down – once its gone, its gone.
