Hi. A very humble Newbie here!

Hi! Newbie here.

My name is Ilelaboye Oyebanke and I am from and reside in Nigeria, Africa.

I am a recent graduate from the university thanks but No thanks to the Corona virus and my country’s policies and present state for delaying and disrupting my plans and all. I am a Nutritionist by training and I am currently undergoing what we call the National Youth Service Corp in my country for a duration of 1year. Although, stipends are paid, it’s not enough and I have no current side job so it does not hurt any one to make a honest income from the side yeah?

My ultimate goal is to be learn and relearn about force trading and along the line, become financially wise and stable. I just started to live without the support of The Parents all my life and adulting is not treating me so well.

I have friends, colleagues and acquaintances who have indulged in Forex trade and are doing well but because any thing that deals with money and business all looks like foreign languages to me when I start looking at the numbers and graphs and plots.

So I plan to be patient with myself and learn this trade to the best of my abilities. Moreover, I think Forex is more stable and more discipline and moral inclined that the cryptocurrencies; I stand to be corrected. I am big on morals and principals but this bills have to be paid.

Thank you and I hope I do not regret joining this great platform.

Welcome. Just understand you WILL lose money on some trades as does every trader on the planet - even friends, colleagues, and acquaintances. Which means you have to protect your account all the time, by low risk trades and emotional control over money management.

Best of luck.
