Journey of a Retail Forex trader
The Life and times of a Professional Fulltime Forex Trader…
For the past 2-1/2 years I have been studying Forex Trading. I’ve been fortunate enough to have found a great mentor who has been successfully trading for 14 years and worth modelling after.
I fell in love with Forex a long long time ago but only recently dedicated the required time and effort to gain proficiency. Best thing I ever did!
I am what you would call a “Day Trader” Most of my trades I take are between 30 minutes and 7-8 hours. Rarely do I take a trade and let it sit overnight.
My targets are simple… 20 -30 pips per day and Im finished. I use a trading strategy that has a very high win rate so its really just a matter of sticking to the rules, not operating out of fear or greed and closing the charts once i hit my target.
I find working the forex market to be the ultimate lifestyle freedom income producer.. the down fall is it can be a lonely journey. It doesn’t directly impact other people except those that are close to me.
All in all it has been the most difficult and the most rewarding endeavour I have ever embarked on and I feel blessed to have found a mentor worth learning from and to keep me away from the sharks.
Success in Forex is like success in anything else, it takes perseverance, dedication, a no matter what mindset, solid mentorship, an inner circle, and taking consistent action over an extended period of time. You cannot succeed from the sidelines, you Cannot succeed overnight… you’ve got to get in the game ☺
I am going to continually document my Forex Trading journey. I have ambitious goals… so lets see where it takes me.. I appreciate you for reading and I hope I can share with you value, guidance and maybe even Hope.
