- I started out trading equities in 1998, was making a killing during the dot.com boom, and like many out there, lost it all when it all turned to shit in 2000.
I took a break from trading, but was introduced to Forex in Decemeber 2004 and I've been trading FX since. I'm still learning after all these years, and I still want to be a full time trader one day!
Dont go thinking that spending $5K on a FX course is going to make you into a super trader, nor a $99.00 EA from the internet.
I've spent many thousands on FX courses from so called guru's and most of it is rubbish. Some of the books out there I would prefer to use as fire kindling!
If you're new to trading, Van K. Tharp is a great place to start; read all his books they are my personal favorite. Its where my perception of the market place changed for me.
And forget that your going to make a million dollars in your first 6 months of trading, like any profession or craft, it takes years of hard work to get there. The money will come, just take your time and treat this as a serious business, cause the big boys out there love taking your money!
Feel free to ask me any questions, happy to help anybody from this fantastic resource.
Cheers and all the best with your trading.
