I'm into forex trading since this year and i have to warn you about stocks and forex trading being a very risky biz for beginners. As a trader with
no experience, you could easily loose your 1500 $ within a very short time.
1500 $ is a good amount to start trading forex. However, before you start to invest your real money, educate yourself and do enough of practice
trading with fake money. All online forex brokers offer demo accounts on which you can train yourself with fake money (but real chart data).
My recommendation for a broker is Oanda
If you are a programmer, I recommend you to check out MQL4 and MQL5 programming languages for development of automated trading systems, so called
"expert advisors" (short: "EA") and helpful scripts for the trading platform
