Give it five in my opinion. Three ain’t long enough to ensure that encounter one of those black swan events. Only once you’ve encountered one of those and are still standing thereafter can you say that what you are doing is consistent and can weather any storm. Ask me how I know!!! LOL!!! But hey: obviously just my personal opinion.
But I will tell you something that occurred to me just yesterday and reminded me of just how messed up my life was some years ago because of this business. I just yesterday happened across a thread that somebody had posted some years ago where they made a sort of short documentary about their friend who is APPARENTLY a successful multi millionaire FOREX trader. No reason to question what I saw. But man: that’s not a life and that in spite of APPARENTLY being able to make loads of money and buy fancy houses and cars and whatever else. The dude cannot even go to the shops in peace without worrying that he’s going to miss a trade and has to rush back to his home office. Or go to bed with his iPad etc. to check news or for signals. You get the picture. Again: ask me how I know. There are a few years of my life that are just a blur for such reasons. Missed out on a lot of life I can tell you. And I didn’t even come out at the end of it with money. Dunno. I suppose if you need that kind of pressure and excitement well then you’re good to go I suppose. But be careful: success in this business may come at a price that you may not be aware of. Until you are and must pay the piper.
