How much money do I need to start trading Forex? Can I start with $2,500?

A: You certainly can start trading forex with that much. In fact, you could go way lower. Many forex brokers these days have accounts open to small traders. There’s at least one broker who has no minimum account size. When picking a broker, though, make sure that the trade size minimums (so called lots) are reasonable for your account size, otherwise you will be in a position of have to trade too large for your capitalization.
