I have $2000 that I can risk losing.

I'd like to get started with Forex Trading.

Is there some place where I can open an account, get free API access, and write basic programs to play with the data? [I'd prefer a Java interface as I'd like to use Clojure.]

They have a Java API, they have a paper trading account once you funded your account. But I guess this question will not make it too long on this forum as this forum is more quant focused. I recommend you go to www.elitetrader.com and ask such questions there.
