I realized I will just keep adding things here so that I don’t have to keep repeating them in my blog posts.
First get this through your thick skull
But before we start I’d like to say the following. Yes, I am trading a very small account and some may laugh. That’s OK. This is my journey and I believe that I need to follow my own path and aim for consistency before I risk too much. Why would I risk it, right?! At this point I am getting more lucky than actually being right. I understand this and I accept this. We have to be honest with ourselves and acknowledge when it’s an ability or just sheer luck. So many brag about their gains, but you never hear them on their losses. Not me. I strive to be good at this. I don’t gamble. I don’t believe in luck. I believe in my plan. And the only way to do this is to be honest. I have no benefit in lying to you because that means I’d be lying to myself. And that is what you will read here. So go on. Mock me. Or… read on and hopefully I contribute something to your journey in becoming a trader.
Being the student
Like you, probably, I am learning how to trade. I don’t claim to know anything. What I do claim is that I will be a successful trader. I am confident that I will be one because I am putting in the time and effort. If I can’t become one, it’s because the game is rigged and I was never able to be good at it anyway. And basically the bottomline is… It’s never my fault 🙂
BECAUSE THE GAME IS RIGGED!
Obviously, I don’t believe this.
This series of posts are my personal approaches to understand markets and trading and in the end my path to success. So if you can be honest about your situation as I can be about mine, we can do this together and get cracking. If ‘they’ can do it… We can.
After all, you can’t be a good trader if you are not completely and brutally honest with yourself.
This series is called ‘The Honest Secrets to Trading’. I call it this because Yes, it is a ‘clickbait’ thing. Partly. How else can I get your attention amid all these other guys. But I also call it this because I will show you in all honesty what my approach to learning this craft is. Because I am looking for these secrets as well. Just like you. I am putting in the time. Are you?
Last note. Generally, you will find a common theme through my articles and that is GOOGLE for yourself. Don’t know a term that I’m talking about? GOOGLE it. I’m not here to tell you all there is about trading. I am here to tell you how I learn and how you can start learning by yourself. I hope you can appreciate that.
Another last note (what?! sue me!!) I am not affiliated with anyone and have no benefit whatsoever with recommending websites, services or products. It’s not that I don’t want to, it’s just that… well.. they don’t care about me ’cause I’m small fish 🙁 boohoo! PLEASE CARE!
OK, got that out of my system 🙂
