I was captivated by your avatar pic. Hopefully it is really you.
This game is real. Understand that your broker(s) are out to get your money. It is battle no matter what resources they give you to show you they care. The industry knows that this isn’t investing per se like the equity mkts.
Most here will tell you the norm: demo, read etc.
There’s a huge portion that isn’t discussed because it isn’t widely known. Understand what drives the markets - I don’t mean the obvious “fundamentals” bs - use them, but see beyond. Fx Brokers don’t make money off just the spread, if you believe that they do then I feel sorry for the likes of you. Some of the smart asses may think it’s tin foil hat material, it’s not. They want you to lose and continue to transfer in new money.
Aside from all the newbie stuff like, read up on things like market making, order flow and price action. It doesn’t have to be confined to Fx only, even equity related material will start you thinking differently. Try to get your mind out of the “retail trader with big dreams” box and into what goes on behind the curtain.
Start off as big as possible even for a greenie and keep your leverage at 50:1 or lower. In the beginning it will keep you out of trouble somewhat and later If you’re good you won’t need anymore with the right amount of risk capital. As you get better you should also be working in bigger positions to recoup what you lost. If you fail to see the rationale then quit now. In the end you’re your own man.
Look at this place, it is chocked full of free money for the brokers. It’s an endless supply of funds that they siphon, it’ll never stop. If and when you ever do get traction, start doing your own thing. Spend less time in places like this and start concentrating on you.
Master one club, not the entire set. That means one pair - yes I said it. One that is less volatile. If you can’t do this then quit.
Make your mistakes and lose money. Progress, make less mistakes and more money.
Stay away from shady brokers. Use a CFTC regulated broker in the US.
