New to the forum, decided I wanted to educate myself further on Forex / spreadbetting after my account blown when the coronavirus struck (Never thought it/governments would pause the economy the way it has). My own fault for not having a S/L, sometimes its the same newb mistakes over and over again.
I am from/living in the UK, have been dabbling pretty unsuccessfully in spreadbetting and some share buying over the last 10/11 years. Never been overly serious with my trading due to being a full time employee with too much excess cash but I have now left my job and would like to invest some time becoming “Free” if possible. Unfortunately with forex there is a lot of Gucci pictures and whatsapp groups which I find means its very difficult to know who to believe.
I am a web developer/programmer by trade and now work for myself.
I mostly look at the daily graphs and then down to hourly to see whats going on and try to have a SL/TP and move to zero as soon as possible. I think there is massive opportunity given the current climate but unfortunately I don’t have the risk appetite to just purchase bluechip stocks to sit and wait on given I am self employed.
Looking forward to learning and hearing everyones opinions and experiences.
