Forex is one of the most dynamic and exciting markets out there as it involves people buying and selling currencies from around the world. Since the rates of exchange of currencies are constantly changing, forex traders try to take advantage of this to accumulate profit through investment in different currencies.

Youngest Forex Traders

Forex market is widely regarded as one of the most volatile and rapid markets out there which provides the opportunity to make profits in a relatively short time.

However, making profits in forex requires adequate research and understanding of certain intricacies as well as determination to succeed. There are several traders who got into forex trading at a young age and have been successful. Here are some of them:


Dan Legg

This is a 21-year old successful forex trader that hails from Somerset in the United Kingdom. After suffering a setback in his life at the age of 17 due to failing his A-level exams, his interest in forex was piqued and he started watching YouTube videos on forex trading. He came from an ordinary background as he grew up in a rural area, but that did not deter him. He made his first investment in forex from the money he saved working at a restaurant.

While he experienced losses initially, he persevered and things started to get better as he began to accrue substantial profits from his trades until he became a millionaire. Dan now teaches courses in forex trading and manages to own multiple houses as well as helping his family's finances so that his parents do not have to work anymore.


Luke Blackburn

Luke is also from the United Kingdom hailing from Yorkshire. He is from a humble background and on top of that, he struggled academically which made his professors at college write him off as a failure.

He eventually dropped out of school and started working at an IT company as an apprentice. It was during this apprenticeship that he started trading forex. While his goal was just to make enough money to sustain himself without having to bother with work, he ended up being a millionaire at the young age of 23.


Percy Smith

This young man is widely regarded as the youngest self-made millionaire in the world. Born in Guyana, which is a very small country in South America, he moved to the United States at the relatively young age of 12. By 13, he had made thousands of dollars from trading in Bitcoin.

However, forex trading soon caught his attention and by the time he was 15, he was already a successful forex trader to the point he started investing in movies.


Nelisiwe Masango

This young lady grew up in a small town near Johannesburg in South Africa and had a childhood dream of being a neurosurgeon. She started working towards it at a young age and was exceptional in her studies, but she couldn't pursue her dream due to lack of financial support and so she put in for a different course of study in college.

However, she dropped out after the first year and it was then that forex trading interested her. She then began to research information about the forex market and acquire the necessary knowledge which enabled her to start investing in the forex market.

Within two years, she had become so successful that she started her own business. Since then, she has founded two other businesses that are doing well and is a millionaire in her 20s.


Joshua Stewart

This young man was a student of engineering at Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia. He was in his junior year when he first learned about forex trading. He was excited about the prospect of making money online despite the common knowledge that forex trading can be quite complicated and risky. As such, he began to carry out research and learn about the forex market so that he can take well-calculated risks.

Eventually, Stewart ended up quitting college and becoming a millionaire at the age of 23. He currently serves as a mentor to people who are interested in forex trading to coach them in the right direction so that they can also be successful.


Samuel Leach

He is quite prominent in the world of forex trading since he began as a working-class youth who got his first job at a private bank by writing a 50-page application as to why he should be hired. It was from this job that he learned about forex trading and then made his first investment. Not long after, he started his own company, Samuel & Co. Trading and later became one of the youngest millionaires in the UK.

These are just some of the young successful forex traders; a lot more of them can be found out there and we could probably end up with a whole book just writing about them and their inspiring stories.

Although this article only covers a small portion of them, the idea is to show that everyone can be successful in forex trading irrespective of how young they are. And yes, the forex market carries a lot of risks, but then again, that is what makes it exciting as the chance of making profits is higher and the risks can be managed anyway.

You just need to equip yourself with the right knowledge and mindset so that you can make the right decisions in such a way that you will be able to bounce back from losses. You can also be a millionaire but it cannot happen overnight as drive, patience, and consistency are needed.

This will allow you to calculate risks, take chances at the right time, and make smart investments with your money. Do not let the fear of losing money stop you from trading in forex because wherever there is the potential for risks, there is also the potential of greater reward. It's just a matter of how well you manage the risk and capitalize on the opportunity.
