DislikedA high school drop out cannot ever be in a postion like this, if he's lucky he could maybe clean the offices after market hours......now there's an idea...Ignored
First of all, it looks like you're boosting fundamental analysis at the expense of technical analysis. To each his own, but I trade from the charts in conjunction with real-time price action. I do just fine - and am far too consistent to be called "just lucky." Although I will take all of the luck I can get.
Assuming that a particular high school drop out had any capacity to learn, I could teach them to be a proficient (profitable) trader in anywhere from six to twelve months - and probably far less time if they were really into it.
So if you're a drop-out from high school, college or any other walk of life - don't get too down on yourself. The universe of Forex is infinite - but you only need to master a tiny slice of it to make money - much more money than the vast majority of college graduates.
