Success Story of a Part Time Forex Trader

You have too know when to wait and when to cut. Its a very difficult market but I get the feeling Im getting it down. Hope I can keep it up when its for real. Be watching for my name in the news. We shall see Muhahahaha. September 25th, at 1: Tech…you say trading with no stops?? Protect your account at all costs! There is no fun in not being able to visit the toilet, the kitchen or just enjoy life as a result of HAVING to watch your charts?

Been watching my stops. I have started putting them in around 50 pips stop loss from my current position. The bigger thing is I will not be able to fund a 50k account. Im going to use the practice for a few months first. And the margin is what gets you on smaller accounts.

My first account actualy bombed because I put a autmatic buy in the wrong place and was sleeping when it bought. I didnt understand the software well enough and it was a complete accident.

Pratice make almost perfect I say. Just that one mistake killed me. Im definitly not throwing money away I can loose ethier though. August 6th, at 4: Mr Gullible eventually kicked off his trading career by attempting to trade news releases on the economic calendar.

WOW Mr gullible said to everyone in the chat room. So Mr Gullible purchased the Trading Robot and integrated it into his trading platform. Remember Mr Gullible in this story is actually representing a small group of traders, 3 to be precise. All 3 traders pooled their life savings together and gave the Forex trading robot full control of their hard earned money.

In about 3 days most of their pooled life savings were destroyed, the robot had made extremely bad trading decisions and actually never once turned a profit. Only one of the Mr Gullibles was able to walk away with some of his capital, but it was church change compared to what he initially invested. There are so many Forex scams out there, for every 9 Forex scams or crappy products; you will probably find 1 good trading system. This kind of saturation makes it hard to find a good Forex Trading Course to get you set on the right direction with your trading.

Usually they are designed around the current market conditions. It would be hidden away in a safe while the creator reaps the rewards. Mr Lazy was a fellow trader that we met in the public trading community. Mr Lazy was looking for some guidance as he was overwhelmed with the amount of Forex information and strategies available.

We took Mr Lazy under our wing as he was interested in learning how to become a good price action trader. Well we regretted that decision quickly, we expected Mr Lazy to play the role of a keen student but instead he turned out to be an annoying parasite.

My Lazy had no intention of learning price action trading for himself, he just wanted to bludge off our experience and be a fly on the wall when we were talking about what trades we were planning to take. We soon caught on to what was happening when we noticed Mr Lazy was not receptive to the knowledge we were providing him and tried to gently cut him loose. The unfortunate thing for us is he had our private email and Skype details.

Every couple of hours Mr Lazy was hounding us for trading signals, even at the most inappropriate times. The Greek elections were broadcasted in Greek. Scotch is from Canada and had to be quick on the Google translator to try keep up with what was going on in the live election feed.

During the entire process Mr Lazy was bombarding Scotch with messages every 5 minutes asking him if he should go short yet. Out of frustration we eventually gave him the cold shoulder until he got the message. Firstly these traders could be the worst traders in the world and you are blindly following them, holding their hands as they walk you right off the cliff.

Forex trading is a personal journey that you should take as an individual. If you are looking for a simple but powerful price action trading course, then you stop by our Price Action Protocol page for more information. Mr Rush was another keen aspiring Price Action trader, unlike Mr Lazy, Mr Rush was hungry for knowledge and was taking in all the advice we gave him.

Mr Rush wanted to take all the right steps to become a professional trader, but he wanted to have completed those steps yesterday. Mr Rush was trying to run before he even knew how to walk. Mr Rush started taking every single pin bar formation on the 1 hour chart, across a variety of markets.

At times Mr Rush would had about five intra day trades open while continuing to look for more potential trades to open. He even started off by making a trading blog where he would record the steps of his trading journey, from a nobody into a millionaire. His over trading and lack of experience washed him out of the markets, his blog went dead and we never seen him again. Understand it, master it, test your skills on demo and keep your cool.

Mr Messy was an interesting trader that had a very strong social presence in an old IRC Forex chat room. We used to mainly hang out in there with the intention of observing the chat room activity for a laugh, because it was mostly nonsense that was thrown around.

We have Mr Messy to thank for most of our laughs. Mr Messy would often post up his opinions, trades and charts regularly. Here is another typical chart from Mr Messy. Mr Messy was one of those traders who combined about 50 different trading strategies into one chart and tried to execute them all at the same time.

Not only that, but he tried to factor in market sentiment and economic news releases into the mix as well. Mr Messy would deploy all sorts of exotic Forex indicators that he found from all the dark corners of the internet, he left no stone unturned.
