I’m happy to be here. I have been learning about forex and occasionally demo trading for about 18 months now. So far not taken the plunge to live, for a few reasons, including not having a consistent enough strategy that backtests sufficiently profitably (there are just so many different ways to trade out there, and I am looking to simplify and have something I can consistently stick to). I also have some concerns about spreads / slippage / commissions eating up all my profits when moving to live…
I am hoping that in this community I’m finding some common sense and experience to help me cut through the confusion of making it all too complex, and get to a more simple but effective approach that I can use confidently to get started in live trading.
Really looking forward to hearing from any of you who have been in the same position and have managed to make the transition, any tips are very welcome!
