I’m going to, once again, take a controversial stance. I learnt how to trade without a mentor to guide me, however, I truly believe that a mentor would have shaved off at least half the time from when I started on this journey to when I became a consistently profitable trader.
Trading is like any other trade or vocation. If you can apprentice under the guidance of a master craftsman then the odds are in your favor of achieving mastery over that trade. Can you learn a trade on your own? Of course you can and many do but you will take much longer to reach the desired level of competence. You either pay with your time or with your money. Choice is yours. I don’t know why there is such a strong resistance on BP to working with a mentor.
The problem you face is that finding the right mentor is very difficult. And, even if you manage to find one there is no guarantee that you will turn out to be a profitable trader. My feeling is that most profitable traders will likely not engage in mentoring someone they don’t know because it represents a huge commitment in time, effort and responsibility. If you personally know a profitable FX trader then you might ask him or her if they will agree to mentor you.
My suggestion to you, if you don’t personally know a profitable trader to approach, would be to learn price action analysis because no matter what other analysis method that appeals to you, you can always use price action in conjunction with another method to improve your trading. Learn to read the market using naked charts. A methodology that is closely aligned with price action is supply demand analysis. Check out YouTube videos on supply demand. Start with that once you’ve gone through the BP school and opened up a demo account.
Above all else you will need a strong desire to succeed. Without that you will likely give up like many have before you. I wish you well on your journey.
