This article is about exalted trading dreams, breaking on the rocks of the reality of working in financial markets and about the eternal question “how to make money on forex?”
Good day to all!
No need to be scared of the title of the article and annotations to it – it’s just to draw attention to the importance of this issue =) Let’s talk today about how MUCH one needs to be able to become a trader. And about what happens when the development of a trader is hasty and not comprehensive – with “falling over” in one direction (this, by the way, is about me).
Few people will probably like the article – the facts that I will set out will cause rejection, rejection, and even a desire to argue or convince myself that “everything cannot be like that,” but I just would like to ask you to read it to the end and calmly try to figure it out (you can even make tea/coffee for yourself), are there any inconsistencies? I do not set the goal of “overshadowing” the real state of things so that you are “ready for the worst.” All of the following is what happened to me, the thesis description of my path, as it is. Subsequently, communicating with other traders, I found out that everyone has a similar path – the same “stupid”, ridiculously crooked and inconsistent – so this article is just a description of what you should be prepared for if you want ”
And one more thing: the fact that the aforementioned will cause your rejection is a completely normal reaction. The purpose of the article is to simply take note of the information. At the right time, she will give you guidelines that will help you move forward.
It’s all very simple, to hell with learning
A characteristic feature of the “internal inconvenience” is that we can not do something calmly, thoughtfully and without rushing. If we stand on burning coals, we don’t think if there is a jug of water and an ointment for burns nearby – we want to ASAP to somewhere. That there was no pain.
A novice trader behaves in approximately the same way when he enters the market: he wants success, he NEEDS success and is uncomfortable without success. Because of this “internal inconvenience”, he needs this very success as quickly as possible, and therefore he will look for the shortest possible ways to achieve it because NO TIME to study the subject.

This is where everyone comes across. A man’s eternal inclination to hope for “maybe” is manifested: we read about trading, we see a lot of all sorts of nonsense, such as “money management”, “risk management”, “trading psychology”, and we think: “damn it, why? ” Why all this, if you can just buy it here, and then sell it over there. Why study something, if you just need to understand WHERE THE PRICE WILL GO. Etc. The brain was originally focused on how to “trick the system” =)
