Before you start trading, you should know:

John Paulson is not just any financial trader - he is the head of Paulson & Co, a New York hedge fund. His $49 billion income in 2010 set a new hedge fund record. You should not expect to beat John Paulson's record or earn anywhere near $4.9 billion. Unfortunately, this means forex trading won't lead to the above collateral benefits for you.

So, all jokes aside:

Forex trading is inherently risky, and the risks include losing money as well as making money.
