Story's money challenge: $1000 lost or profit gained?

For the past four weeks, Story has been running a 'get rich quick' scheme to see if regular people can make money off trading or if you need to be an expert.

The aim was to turn $1000 into as much cold hard cash by entering the world of high-risk trading, which is more risky than regular trading but can be much more rewarding.

But financial experts do not recommend this method for regular people.

Trading platforms found online can range from free to very expensive and you can trade on the foreign exchange market.

So have we found a new career? Or will Julian Lee be keeping his day-job?

Watch the video for the full Story report.
