I think I’m going to graduate Pipsology preschool tomorrow! Not sure if I’ll really use my spreadsheets longterm, but they’ve definitely helped with organizing and understanding the market times, currency pairs to start with, conceptualizing how pips/profits/margin are calculated and used. I’m planning to finish up content on margins tomorrow. I’m starting to feel like I’m walking into a cave realizing I need to be able to put down a relatively large chunk of money for a starting balance (but of course, demos before I even think about using real money) bahahah starting to finally see the yellow flashing lights!
I think of my learning as an investment into myself. Also moving back home has been a real motivator (still young adult but adult enough to need my own space). Speaking of–I stay focused by creating a private space that mimics what I’m used to doing ‘strenuous academic work’ in (coffee shop or bakery). Some jazz in the background to drown out noise or silence if I need to really think, turn my phone on DND, take cleaning/boredom/other necessary breaks (no point in reading if I’m not really paying attention).
Just keep a balance, stay realistic, give time for growth in learning.
I’m not trading yet, so I don’t really have much advice there…wishing you all success and motivation
