Episode 1: Introducing The Forex Femme Fatale

DailyForex.com Team

I come from a long line of gamblers; twice a week bingo, Friday night poker games, Saturday afternoon visits to the race track; atForex Femme Fatale - The Forex Newbie work there were office pools for the Super Bowl, the World Series, the World Cup, this playoff, that subway series – there was always something to bet on. When casinos started enticing adventurers with free bus rides and all you can eat buffets, you can bet I cracked open my piggy back and took a chance. Yes, I had the gambling gene. And even though I lost far more than I ever won, I enjoyed the noise, the sounds, the smell, the camaraderie, the commiseration and the excitement. If I won, it was just icing on the cake.

But as I grew older, I started to consider those forms of "?entertainment" as "?below" me. After all, I'm an intelligent person. I've got a degree in finance (with honors!). For many years, I'd worked in international banking organizations and well respected financial firms on Wall Street. I read the business section of the newspaper – heck, I could write the business section of the newspaper. The question is can I put my vast knowledge to work for me, for the greater good (i.e. my pitiable bank account)?

I think I can. But I've got a problem. I'm frugal. Okay, okay, in truth – I'm cheap. I hate spending/losing/wasting money without getting something in return for it. So when I was given the chance to write about my experiences as a newbie Forex trader, with my amazingly wonderful sponsor offering to front me, I jumped at the chance. You bet I did.

So off to Forex fantasy land I went. And I survived. I am living proof that you can come out again, whole, on the other side – oh, maybe not so much richer as wiser – but that's another story. And here it begins"¦

I got myself registered with a Forex broker; one that was well-known, had a good reputation, with an award winning platform (that really appealed to me – honors and awards?! It must be good!).

I look forward to sharing my experiences with you over the next few weeks. The profits, the losses, the emotions, and everything in between!
