How to start forex trading with $100 and make money?


Well-known member
Great tips for sure! If a trader moves ahead step by step, there is nothing that can stop them from growing. The amount that you put at risk might have an impact on the profits that you will make, but the knowledge and experience you gain have a direct impact on how long you will be taking profits.

I would suggest the forex traders to be careful about the leverage provided to them. Using too much leverage for a $100 account is also risky. It will increase the amount of profit without any doubt but with reward always comes a risk. If you lose, the loss will also be big. If you can manage the risks while using leverage you may use it.


$100 is a decent amount for a beginner to start with forex trading, but he/she shouldn't have high expectations with those $100. Keep your focus on learning and practicing forex trading to gain enough confidence to risk larger capital in potential trades.

When you develop and implement a successful trading plan, your first $100 Forex investment can ultimately transform your life for the better.

However, it is crucial to stick to a plan and stay on track to success, whether you have $100 or $1,000,000 in your account. It is common to deal with emotional ups and downs when you gain and lose money. Don't be deterred from accepting losses as a part of life. Keep up-to-date on your trading strategy by calculating your margin value and analyzing your existing margin value. Be sure to check your equity to understand your current position and make trades accordingly. Smart investment, timing, and patience are the three most important qualities when it comes to Forex trading. The combination of these three qualities has the potential to take your account from $100 to $10,000 in the shortest period of time.

Quite a comprehensive guide to learn about forex trading. In addition to practising all this, it is important for all novices to practice trading using a demo account in order to gain experience and learn about the working of the market.

It's a smart move not to risk more than you can afford to lose. I also started with $10 and until now have traded with over $10000 in total. It's not what you are risking that matters, but how much profits you are making.

I won't say that you can make huge profits with $100. But it's surely a good amount to start with for beginners. You may not make any money but you will get to learn how exactly the live market works and what you should do in your next trades to minimise losses.

@jeanpatterson It’s motivating to see someone growing their account from $10. I have also started with $300 with fxview as I can’t afford more rn. Would love to hear how you made it happen.


This is a well written post. I would advise the beginners to start with a demo and give extra attention to risk management to ensure safe trading.


I think $100 is the ideal budget for a newbie. Even if they have thousands of dollars to spare, it is better to start with a small amount to minimise the risk while you learn. Once you get past the beginner phase in the forex market you can add funds to your account gradually as you start making profits consistently. It is advised to risk as minimum as possible throughout the learning process to stay on the safe side. This post will be a really good guide for beginners to start out in the forex market with confidence irrespective of their budget.

I agree with @Spartan
Starting forex trading with $100 seems like an ideal value for most beginners. Starting with a value too small like $10 will not give them a good profit, whereas starting with an amount as big as $500 will be too much to lose on a first trade.

For a beginner, $100 is a good amount to start with. I started with the exact same amount with turnkey forex. You can earn with $100, but don’t have high expectations because the rapid movements of the market can turn profits into losses if you are not being careful.

Trading with $100 and being consistent with the profits is a huge achievement for a trader. But the forex market isn’t so simple that it will let a trader who started with just $100 grow the money easily. Although it’s helpful to practice trading without risking a huge amount, in order to earn considerable profits you have to deposit more into your account.


What an informative post indeed! Before you begin trading, you must first read a lot of information regarding money management. I believe that $100 is a reasonable starting point, but it will be tough to grow your account from there because losses are unavoidable in the early stages. Remember that if you want to be successful, you shouldn’t go beyond risk appetite.


Forex trading is a risky business and there is no guarantee of success. Therefore, you should have a plan and a trading strategy. Be disciplined and patient.


$100 is a decent amount to start trading but I don’t think you should expect high. You should only trade small positions. The money is genuine, the market is real and so is the risk, therefore your trading should be real as well. Don’t take forex lightly and first practise in a demo account.
