  53. 53. Trading foreign exchange on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors.. Before deciding to trade foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with foreign exchange trading, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts. Traders should confirm entries before making a decision to enter the market.  We recommend that traders should always be very selective with entries while using tight stops.  encourages traders to become more selective with entries to learn how to increase the profit gain per lot and decrease the size of protection in order to protect the margin accounts.<br />
