My trading career started with trading stocks.

My favourite internet forum also had a section on Forex trading. For a long time, I did not pay any attention to it because learning about stock trading was already enough work.

After some time, when my mid/long-term stock trading strategy was written down and worked, I started reading the articles there, just out of curiosity. And somehow, all of it sounded very interesting …

Ah, and I discovered Babypips because somebody posted a link to it with the comment: ‘Read this urgently. A brilliant site about Forex trading’

Thanks for the wonderful comment grxlwpf!

I found about the Forex through Dr. Pipslow. He taught me not to be over confident and not to be greedy. I wanted too much bling and he helped control my urges to overtrads haha. Thanks to him I am now one smooth trading cat :slight_smile:

something strange , i found forex from an autosurf site. and i know babypips from a forex chat channel.

i used to use autosurfs to try to make money from google adsense, but they caught on lol.

good posts guys.:slight_smile:

yeah great thread bro;)

Checking the exchange rates for vacation and seeing an FXCM ad - start of a fun and time-consuming journey!

Then I found a free demo and doubled my money.

I thought “this is too good to be true”. So, I searched the web for knowledge. I’ve been learning what I did right and what else to do. Apparrently, trading GBP/USD during a 15 year high is the right thing to do.

Now to do it again with real money…

I wanted to open a restuarant but didn’t have enough capital so I was looking for ways to invest money; either in investment instruments or in smaller businesses to generate more income.

I live in Japan and exchange companies are popular. I thought, “Maybe I could open an exhange business.” But I have no idea how they manage their money since they offer rates above the bank but below FOREX. I was google-ing the topic when I found an Ad for FXCM and I started researching it. A couple months later I opened a live account.

It’s a blast!

I first heard about Forex on one of those scam Infomercials. I actually showed up to the seminar that was near the airport, but had to leave half way so I wouldn’t disrupt everyone by laughing so hard. I couldn’t believe the claims that were being made. It’s too bad that there is so much corruption with this incredible market with endless possibilities.

I kept hearing about it for many months, but I was really unsure about all of it. Mainly because after looking at what I know now to be a candle stick chart, I was confused and had no idea what I was looking at…at first I thought it would be like trying to learn a new language or something.

So I was skeptical. There was intimadation.

Meanwhile, Internet Marketing endeavors was moving as slow as molasses…

Talked to my dad, he mentioned Forex, my eyes widened…and I asked him to elaborate more…

And Now I’ve been reading, studying, and demoing the past few weeks now…

And loving it’
