Want to share a simple method which may keep newbies in the game and earn swaps for them too. The method : Buy one lot of each major pair ie buy a pair of eurusd,usdjpy,gbpusd,usdchf. Let the trade run. It accrues 1.5 $ daily on mini lots. The max swing experienced in the last three months is 300 pips, so keep that margin and sleep comfortably. Being all majors and hedging each other, no nasty surprises may be encountered under normal market conditions- Best of luck.
