Even if you are a newbie you can say what you think helped you initially. Mine are not in any particular but here they are.
- Take it seriously.
Like someone said…if you go to the gym once per week and spend half hour each time you shouldnt expect the same results as the person who shows up six days per week and does two hour stints. I try to do something forex related daily, even if it is to re-watch a youtube video on someone’s strategy on the weekend when I cant trade.
- Dont limit your learning to one or even two sources.
Forty different people or sites could each give you one bit of information each which you can use to create your own successful strategy. No one person has all the answers so soak up information like a sponge.
- Demo trade for at least a month before going live.
Even if it just to get used to the various platforms it is important to know the basics such as how to place a trade, stop losses, trailing stops etc.
