In my opinion, it is better to start with at least $1,000 as this will allow you to manage your risks more effectively and have enough headroom to trade. In general, the amount depends on your experience and willingness to take risks, as well as on what strategies you are guided by. And of course, it is important in this business to have a reliable and proven forex broker
. But, clearly, it is also important to have a sufficient capital buffer so that you can withstand losses, even if several trades close in a row with losses.
