In my first two months of trading, I lost around 70% of my investment. I really struggled to make any sort of profit, or to do anything besides lose money. It seemed the more time I spent trading, the more money I lost.
The truth is, I didn’t know who to talk to, or what I needed to learn. I was so confused – how did every successful trader make things look so easy? There must have been some simple connection I was missing.
After a while of not getting results, I decided to change my approach: I was going to educate myself to trade like a pro. I started researching Forex trading on the internet, poring for hours over blogs and forums, but most of what I came across was useless. I bought book after book about Forex trading, scouring them for any secret techniques I could use.
But the end result? Hours of wasted time and effort, and an even emptier investment account.
It was time to get serious.
The problem is, I could accumulate as much knowledge as I wanted, nothing changed in my bottom line. I was still consistently losing money.
In the beginning, I had absolutely no strategy. I heard from everyone online that having a strategy was essential. And even when I decided to write down my strategy, I kept losing money.
It seemed I was clearly missing something...
A few months later, I started meeting up with other traders. I talked about my struggles, and they gave me advice to help me improve.
For the very first time, I learned that following indicators wasn't the most critical part of trading. Instead, I was much better simplifying things.
What came out of me meeting up with traders, and even hiring a personal trading coach, was a process I could follow to place the odds on my side.
Dont forget! There's no way you can win at all times in trading, but my trades finally started coming together. I started to win and got my first 3 consecutive winning months EVER!
And today, I'm trading Forex while travelling around the world!
