i totallt agree with what your saying for sure. one thing i have learned over the years is less is more.
- A broker is not that important. 90% of them are fine so use whatever one you are comfortable with. I use REMOVED as I use Bitcoin to deposit and withdraw and it is very quick, also the tree planting is good. It all helps. FPA FORUMS TEAM NOTE: General Forex Talk is a non-commercial folder. DO NOT make broker recommendations in non-commercial folders unless you want to meet Spam Cat.
- Social media “gurus” often don’t actually trade themselves and make their money conning the vast majority of people coming into trading looking for quick cash – don’t get caught out!
- Nobody can give you a ready-made strategy and then send you off to start making money, A strategy is something personal to you in terms of time, risk tolerance, psychology, speed of the market etc. Take bits from different sources and then take the time to formulate and test your own strategy that fits your own parameters. There is no “one-size fits all” in trading.
- Trading of any type is NOT A GET RICH QUICK SCHEME! It takes time for the above reasons to first learn the basics and then formulate a strategy, test it thoroughly and implement it.
- Set achievable goals – when you first start break even at the end of the month might be a great target for you and that is fine. Not losing long term is priority number one to protect your capital. Don’t compare your 1000hrs of practice to another person’s 10,000hrs. Be better than you were 6 months ago and focus on that.
What else have you all learned in your time trading?
