Welcome to My Forex Trading Journey. Trading was always one of those professions I knew little about but fantasized often. I pictured being Jordan Belfort for a day, having the world at my fingertips. However, the reality is that trading is one of the most difficult professions in the world to master. This was something I would learn the hard way, just as every successful trader before me has and every trader after me will.
My Forex Trading Journey: Understanding Foreign Exchange
It was during my time in college, studying International Business when I stumbled upon the world of foreign currency speculation (trading). I was assigned a 20-page independent study on the change in the value of the Euro versus the US dollar over the last 20 years. While researching and writing this paper, I came to discover the multi-trillion-dollar industry of foreign currencies. Speculation was one of the major factors that affected the valuation of the two currencies- something I found intriguing and was a big discovery in My Forex Trading Journey.
My Forex Trading Journey: Research Phase
After this discovery, I dove head-first into the world of forex trading and never looked back. It started with every book possible, every YouTube page I could find, and every free website or article out there. That then evolved into me searching for and investing in courses and mentor programs. A majority of these were crap and a waste of money- though some I learned lessons I can’t put a value on. I demo traded, blew live accounts, and lost money hand-over-fist for the first couple of years. Never in my life had I been more frustrated- I had never fully applied myself to anything before and failed this miserably.
Rock-bottom was hit multiple times it felt like, but I never gave up, this was all a part of My Forex Trading Journey. Although I wanted to quit time and time again, I never did. Every time I fell, I got right back up- with a lesson learned. It wasn’t until I turned to professional traders for guidance that I really changed and began to see consistent results. I began training with Maverick Trading as a Forex Prop Trader and learned things I never knew existed. I was pushed and tested more than ever before in my life. But after a grueling year of training, I was able to trade Professionally as a Prop Trader. I then went on to trade for multiple different trading firms before I landed where I am today- as an account manager in the Forex Trading division of an investment company.
My persistence and dedication to the craft are what led me to my ultimate success as a trader. Having said that, my biggest advice to all struggling traders out there who read this article is this: do not EVER give up. I know it will be tough. You will test and challenge yourself more than you ever thought possible; you’ll scream, throw things and even rip out your hair at times. But I promise you, if you don’t give up and you continue to improve and learn, you will change your life forever.
