See, e.g., Foreign currency trading is an easy way to lose money - Los Angeles Times
Yes you are right most of the individual lost their money in forex trading. I started forex trading 4 years ago. I was losing too. But I didn't gave up. I worked on my trading skill, trading strategy and risk management. Finally I am able to make consistent profit. Not only that but to make forex trading my source of income I trade for some of my clients. I started doing that from last 2 months. I don't have big clients but clients who invested around $2500.
So I think if I keep trading in forex may be I will have enough asset before I retire at the age of 40.
