Portfolio Margin for More Trading Leverage TD Ameritrade

Thoughts on FairForex Broker

Hey guys/gals. I’ve kinda got two questions in here, the main one is about FairForex though. Anybody have any experience dealing with them? I know they’re offshore/unregulated and that can be sketchy/has potential to be fucked. But the group I’m with all use them and have good things to say. 1:400 leverage, only a minimum of $100, and decent spreads. Not heard too many gripes about customer service or fucky withdrawal methods. I’m only looking to start with about 200 bucks on my live account (doing DEMO right now). I’ve got a TD Ameritrade account and would like to use them but I can’t get approved for margins with that little initial capital.
And for part two
So I’m about two months in to this forex game. I was brought in by two of my buddies from HS and they got me signed up with their team on IML Academy ( I know I know). I’ve found that they’re 46 video academy has been just OK. Honestly I find that these “gurus” or leaders are pretty awful at actually teaching and explaining things, though it has done a good job of pointing me in the right direction in being able to research further about certain topics. The team I’m on seems to be very supportive, they don’t push me to do recruiting or anything. Zoom chats at least every day, though 3/4 are about the “winning mentality” with the other 1 being about trading. But even when I tap in for that one those guys are honestly terrible teachers, pretty bad at explaining thought processes and reasoning behind taking certain trades. They’ve got me in two signal chats that usually put up at least 400-1000 pips a week depending on if they’re just doing pairs or if they throw some Indices in there too.
Should I stick around and use the signal chat to at leastbreak even while I learn my way, or just cut my losses and figure all this shit out and be my own self made man? Anyone been in my shoes before, shitty pyramid scheme but has a good team?
Also anyone have thoughts on the harmonic scanner? That’s the tool they have us laying for
TL;DR Anyone have thoughts on FairForex as a broker? Also I’m in IML Academy, find that the videos are pretty bogus but my team is good. Should I stick around?

What type of commodities do you guys trade? Do you focus on Forex with algo trading, Options?

So like the title suggest I was wondering what types of trades or trading do you focus on? I am super into options but want to get into algo trading to become a better technical trader. If you focus on forex what platforms do you use to trade on. I know with TD ameritrade I think the report they have is 30-40% of traders who trade forex lose money and TD leverages against you? Any help would be awesome!!!

Edit:
You guys are amazing honestly! Thank you so much for the help you've guys (and gals) given me a lot to think about!

TD Ameritrade/Thinkorswim - anyone use them for forex trading? Spread question

Just started demo trading on Thinkorswim/TD Ameritrade. Was looking at the GBP/JPY spread last night - it’s like... 15-20 pips.
Guessing people do not trade forex on TD Ameritrade because of the spread...? Leverage? Am I figuring the pip spread out incorrectly? Seemed a lot higher than EUUSD which is maybe 5-6 pips. Also know most people use specific forex brokerages and I’m curious if pip spread is the reason.
Bonus question - if a trade starts going the opposite way, I’ll reverse the trade sometimes. When I do that, where is the sale price, and at what price do I enter a sell/short position at?
Thanks

Do you know how much leverage TD Ameritrade offers for forex? (in an account of $2000)

How do I get started?

I'm interested in trading Forex, I was wondering how I even begin doing this.
Right now I have TD Ameritrade, and the option to purchase EUUSD on ToS, unsure if it is leveraged.
I've been following the market for a while and I find the volatility to be captivating. Coming from trading equities and options, is it absurd of me to expect to make money by passively trading currency with limit buys and limit sells?

Some questions from someone new to Forex

Hi. So, I've traded leveraged assets before... namely options. Recently, I discovered forex, and I realized certain immediate advantages:
All of that being said, I am extremely uneasy about certain aspects of forex, and maybe some of you can help me out.
My biggest concern is margin. As I said before, I traded options, which are leveraged derivatives. However, the leverage built into options contracts is not the same thing as margin leverage. With options, I could still only lose my own money. Personally, in my entire time trading, I've had very few problems with my orders, but I was always trading in cash accounts, so I never much cared if there were minor hiccups. My worries are:
Forgive me if these are noob margin questions, but I haven't really read any personal stories of people actually losing a bunch of margin on a leveraged position. I've heard of forex brokers filing for bankruptcy, but not individual traders over a forex trade... does this happen? And if so, how often, and what do you guys do to deal with the extraordinary leverage in the forex world?

Some perspective on trading software glitches/failures.

NYSEFailure AlgorithmFailure BloombergFailure DeutschebankFailure TDAmeritradeFailure ETradeFailure
Unfortunately, it happens. I have executed thousands of free trades with Robinhood (iOS and Android) over the past 8 months, and have had zero problems until the last couple weeks. I have been day-trading leveraged ETF's on RH Instant for the past month and I did get stuck in a trade with the first glitch about ten days ago. The amount of money I lost before I could close my position was about what it would cost me to make a dozen trades on another brokerage platform. I'm not here to blindly defend RH and I fully expect them to get their act together to protect their customers. For right now, why would I switch to a pay-per-trade brokerage when the possibility for downtime and software failures is also a historical possibility?
The amount I've saved in brokerage and trade fees is enormous by comparison, but I'm hoping that stability and web/desktop trading will help establish RH as a long-term solution for day-trading. Maybe even linking with eSignal? That would be nice.
TLDR; Expensive trading platforms fail/glitch too. Big time.
