FOREX trading in Sri Lanka – how to start trading and free FOREX info

As I have mentioned countless times in this blog FOREX trading is a great way to earn a decent income online. When it comes to FOREX trading in Sri Lanka one of the biggest obstacles faced by people is the trust factor. They struggle to get proper advice on how to start FOREX trading and because of all the fraudulent activities that happened in the recent past ( The Sakvithi scam , Ceylinco depositors scam ) people are just reluctant to invest there money on anything. I get numerous mails asking me about how to withdraw money and how much people can earn through trading but most of these people haven’t bothered about going through the training material or the FOREX resources I have linked to. Most of these people are get rich quick types who are looking to make some easy money on the internet but the truth is there is no such thing as easy money. FOREX trading is like any other trade or business, you have spend some time learning the ropes before you can actually start making profit from it.

    I’ve never tried Forex trading but I’ll be the first to admit I never know what a quality Forex article is or what a spam one is. The only reason I know this article is quality is because it’s on your blog.

    I’ve never done futures,currency or any other form. I don’t plan on it either I’m to afraid to lose my money haha!

      @Ravi, I guess you are saying this because you invested money in FOREX and lost. FOREX does involve risks but it can never be compared to a casino where everything is based on luck. If you study the trends and take time to learn about trading you can succeed with FOREX. Make use of mechanisms like stop loss margins and make good decisions without getting too greedy, then you will succeed.

    how is the legal assurance and guarantee for our invested money to this legal in sri lanka? and does it taxable?

    • says

      @Kumudu, What do you mean by guarantee ? If you invest some money in it then you can always get them anytime you want. Whether your amount increases or decreases depends on how you trade.

      • kumudu says


        as you say , what is the assurance for our money can i know detail about that?

      • says

        @kumudu, it depends on your broker , read the reviews and check if they have a history of not paying on time etc. Usually all top brokers allow you the ability to withdraw money at any time and they pay on time.

    • says

      @Ravi, True, only about 10% of FOREX dealers actually make profit, its up to you to get into that 10%, learn about trading and apply the techniques and then you will be in that 10% :-) , however that doesn’t make it a scam ;)

      @Udayanga, Depending on your broker there are plenty of payment options other than PayPal. You can use credit card, direct money transfer, AlertPay, debit cards etc as well.
