In this crazy economy, people are looking everywhere to make some extra money from home. There is internet marketing, affiliate marketing, eBay, surveys, etc. Now I am not saying these are bad ways to make money. Obviously, I use internet marketing to supplement my trading income as well. I just want you to know that there are other options out there – and one of them is the forex.
Many people think that the foreign exchange is just too complication. After all, the name itself is kind of intimidating. But trading the forex is not much different from trading stocks. And how many people do you know that are in the stock market in some fashion? Almost everyone.
So before you completely by-pass the forex as a potential money-maker, let’s look at some advantages the forex has over other money-making ideas.
1. The forex is open 24 hours a day
The only time the forex closes is during the weekend. This means that no matter where you are located, you can trade the currency markets any time you want to.
When I first started trading, I had a full-time job and could not keep up with the markets during regular business hours. This really made trading stocks difficult.
And that is why I started trading the foreign exchange. I could work my normal job, and then come home and make some pretty good money at night or during the early morning.
2. The forex has unbelievable earning potential
If you have tried internet marketing, affiliate marketing, or SEO marketing, you know how frustrating it can be to depend on someone else to do something before you make money.
The forex relies on no one but you!
You don’t have to build a list, create backlinks, or write articles:) All you have do to is make money.
And you don’t have to wait for weeks to get your check. As soon as you close a winning trade, the money is in your account and waiting for you to take it out.
Oh, and people have actually doubled their forex trading accounts in a few weeks. This isn’t common or the norm, but it has happened. That, my friend, is amazing earning potential!
