Wanted to give my opinion on this thread as I read it fully. My problem with all these kind of threads is that we hear mostly about the succes stories. Some will point out they lost at some point, but mostly it is bragging how well they are doing and thatyou are stupid or at the least unedjucated if you do not also take the risk.
My problem with that is that the less disposible income you have, the more you have to gain by entering in such a venture. BUT the more you also have to lose !!! If you have enough money to not have to worry about losing 100000 then you will not get into problems but I have seen more than one guy getting caught up in the hype and lose too much, one almost went mental and another is not with us anymore because of the loss he took.
Everybody can warn a thousand times to be sensible about this and not use money you cannot afford to lose, but it does not work like that. It is just as dangerous as a gambling addiction. Once you won, you want to keep on winning at all cost. If you are succeptible to getting addicted quickly, threads like these could be litterally lethal. I am lucky to not want to gamble ever (went to Vegas three times now, gambled 1 dollar every time ) but the prospect of easy money is can be VERY attractive, mostly for the people that cannot afford to lose.
Just my two cents.
