The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Mark Wilkes, Head of Risk Trading at Purple Group.

Wilkes discussed the following five reasons to be cautious of forex trading:

  • Inherent volatility.

  • There are always two currencies involved – complex relativity.

  • Susceptible to news headlines and fast reaction.

  • There is no such thing as a successful algorithmic program.

  • I don’t trade in currencies, I trade in everything.
