The complicated portion of it is learning to understand the economic reports and compare them to other countries.
While Forex trading can feel complicated, it's something that anyone with patience and the ability to learn from their mistakes can gain some skill at over time. It takes some persistence. The system is designed in a way that frustrates most people. You need to step back, keep an eye on the big picture, and trade small, at least in the beginning.

Please keep in mind that different brokers give different quotes at a specific point of time. The difference is usually about 5 pips and perhaps more.
