You do not have to throw all your cash in, come out empty handed and run out for more cash to throw in all in the name getting comfortable. You have to invest bit by bit. As much as you are willing to lose. At this point, the aim is not to make money but to learn to do things right by the forex market. (Do not get me wrong, the aim is always to make money)
