Wow, this is interesting. 2 major forex brokers reported that 70 percent of all accounts lost money each of the last 4 quarters, according to the following LA Times article. Are you kidding???

I've got some of my own stories of experiences in the futures and forex markets that a few people thinking about getting into the game might like to read but that's another day.
Anyway here's the link to the article.
