Correcting Years of Wasted Potential

First, this site is absolutely incredible. I’ve been dabbling in trading for about 10 years and found I would get frustrated and give up for long periods of time. What I’ve discovered is that the person who was my mentor did teach me a few things, but in going through the Forex School I learned the knowledge he bestowed only took me up to Elementary School, and I’m talking like 4th grade!

I should have known better, given that he eventually went to Federal Prison for running a Ponsi Scheme and bilking people out of millions.

I am here because I know I can do this. I eat, sleep, and breathe a desire to succeed and trading Forex has always felt like the method by which I can have the financial security I’ve always wanted. I’ve been blown away at the depth of information your site contains and that you are willingly sharing that knowledge with us. I wish my experience early on had included mentors like you guys. THANK YOU SO MUCH! (And I’m not prone to using caps in my communications, so take those caps as a really big deal).

I’m still learning, running a demo account, and trying to manage my time effectively so I can build a good daily practice. I’m very excited to have found this site. I know that I have a lot of learning and growing to be a successful trader. I’m up for the challenge for sure.
