just a quick Hi from Down Under. I was introduced to Forex Trading about 4 years ago but was running a business at the time. So I had no time. I now have plenty of time to be trading around and during my job and it would be an absolute dream to trade full time one day. I was spending a lot of my time as a semi professional poker player however our government has recently banned online poker. So i need another way to make money and use my free time wisely. Being a successful poker player has enable me to understand some of the fundamentals of trading quicker. For example, trading psychology and poker psychology are very similar in the fact that you must be able to make decisions based on logic and not emotion. Similar to that, losing streaks are all part of trading and playing poker. It all comes down to mathematics and probability.
While I am introducing myself, I am also looking for a "study" partner or someone who I can share my trades with to learn off one another. I have completed 2 courses on the basics of trading with some level of strategy although am still a losing trader. One thing I have noticed is that I am constantly losing my bigger trades but am quite consistently picking off 15-20+ pip trades. Obviously something to work on. I do ask that if you are interested in a study partner, that you are trading real money accounts and speak fluent English. Please note that I have absolutely nothing against those who don't speak it fluently, I myself have at times struggled communicating and I feel that this topic is something that can get quite confusing very quickly if there is a communication barrier.
Would also like to add that if there are any successful traders out there willing to mentor me, obviously I'd be happy to strike a conversation with you but I cant really offer anything in return.
Look forward to hearing from you all.
