How much money to start stock trading

How to trade money - I haven't been trading forex – or anything else, for that matter – for a long time, but i did buy a 0,000 house to rent out, using – effectively – some leverage from the bank (i got a home equity loan of 0,000 and put in the rest, 0,000, from my own pocket; i only pay the interest on the loan, about ,000 a month or ,000 a year), and have been comfortable doing that for the last three and a half years. In forex i would simply let my money compound until it reaches an amount which would allow me to take out some of it every year to get extra money to do the things i'd like to do in my last few years on earth (hopefully i have another 30-odd years, but more realistically only 20-odd years), and also leave something for my heirs. Myself have about ,000 to invest in forex (not that i have it all in forex right now: i only have ,040 in forex right now, and aim to put in more and more money as time goes on and i get better and better at it) – but then, if what you say is correct, i could be making ,250 a day on the average! And just 2 such winning trades per day – which presumably means i would have to set a total of 3 or 4 trades a day – would give me an income of over ,100 a day on an average, or (given that there are 250+ trading days in a year) an annual income of 5,000+, would it not?
