It doesn’t really matter if you are employed, retired, a business

owner, my advice is the same for all of you-your first goal as a trader

should be to become a ”part time” trader and student. Don’t be

naive and quit your job, replace your income with trading and think

you can become a full time trader from the start. Trading is not a

”get rich quickly” way, in fact, nothing in life is that easy. Sure you

can make alot of money trading, but to get there you need to invest

alot of time and effort. My reputation is build on honesty and

integrity, and all of my insights and truths about trwding. If you are a

novice or strugling trader, or maybe you are just looking for advice,

and you want to become a pro trader eventually, than just keep on



Most people start with Forex trading because they are unhappy

with their job or the amount of money they make, sometimes even

both. They think they can just switch and make Forex trading their

primal income, and that way of thinking leads a person to losing

money and make the patk to success that more complicated and

difficult. If you have an overwhelming desire to become a full-time

trader, you will start to feel like you need to trade or you won’t be

happy. You need to convince yourself that you don’t need to trade

and when you achieve that kind of mindset your trading will

improve and it will get easier to profit repeatedly on the market.

When you put your mind under pressure that you need to make

money in order to pay the bills, you are leading yourself towards

failure. That’s one of the reasons why you should keep your trading

a part time thing in the beginning.

• Part-time trading

You need to understand that it’s important not to put all your

time and energy into trading at the beginning. No matter the

situation with your current job,, you need to keep it and trade in

your free time as an addition. If you quit your job or lose it you

won’t stand a chance to become a full-time trader.

Becoming a full-time trader is not something you can rush. First

you need to learn the ropes, master the art and skill of

successfully reading a price chart.

Keeping your job and maintaining a sure source of income is

crucial to keep the proper trading mindset, otherwise you will

be stuck at a point where your trading must workbout, and you

don’t want that. Trading part-time will keep you out of the

market, it may sound weird but over-trading is perhaps the

biggest mistake you can do as a Forex trader. By taking a part-

time approach to the market, you will stay occupied with other

activities through the day and you will check the marketvat

certain intervals every day, you won’t be glued to your

computer screen.

• Forget about the ”get rich quick” mentality

Many if not most traders at least think they will get rich quickly

with trading. It’s nothing wrong if you believe you can make

money and succed, the problem is when it becomes an all

consuming thought, and you think it will or should happen really

fast, you are setting yourself up for failure. Traders that think

they wil make it quick end up over-analyzing the market, they

think they will succed just because they are putting in a full-time

effort.The reality of this mentality is that you eventualy want to

control the market. When you stay up all night long, watching

your charts you subconsciously try to control the uncontrollable

and the more you do it, more you believe that the increasing

time you spend watching the market is going to pay-off

eventually. So basically, by believing in this mentality, you will just end up

spending huge amounts of time over-analyzing market factors,

that will cause indecision and EMOTIONAL TRADING and

eventualy it will cause you to lose money.

That Forex trading is a quick and easy way for income is just a

myth. To make quick and easy money all the time is imposible,

unless you are doing something ilegal. You need to have realistic

expectations when entering the market and you can do so with

a part-time approach. With it you will keep your mind clear and

your mindset will be almost stress-free. On the market the only

thing you can control is yourself. The more you arebable to

control your actions, the bigger chances you have for success.

You can easily convince yourself that you can control yourself

even as you over-trade and over-leverage your account, but

take a step back and think objectively about every action you

took in the market. It will make you see if your actions are

logical or emotional.

In some way it’s ironic that taking a part-time approach, or a

”LESS IS MORE” approach will make you more money faster,

because chances to trade emotionaly are small, when you

realize that you can make money even with trading only few

times a week or less. So if you really want to make consistent

money , you need to realize it won’t happen fast, unless you are

risking too much and get lucky a few times in a row, or you have

a large pile of money to begin trading with.

• To stay accountable you need to chose part-time trading

The biggesst reason why making money consistently in the

Forex market is difficult for most traders is because there is no

one to be accountable to. Your current boss, will fire you if you

lose money for the company, or do something he/she doesn’t

approve of. But Forex market won’t fire you no matter the

amount of money you lose. It doesn’t even know you exist, you

are just another number in the sea of traders. You need to

figure out a way to make yourself accountable if you want to

success at Forex trading.

Being a part-time trader makes you study and TRADE HIGHER

TIME FRAMES. If you have a full-time job, you will have to trade

off the daily chart. This is actually a good thing, no matterbthat

many traders think there is no advantage to trade the lower

time frames. The market provides daily setups each week for

traders to take advantage of, so there is no need to trade any

time frame lower thanbthe daily. Trading part-time forces you

to master higher time frames early on in your career when your

talent and skills improve you can start implementing lower time

frames to make your entries and exits better. Many traders

make a mistake and start trading by analyzing the lower time

frames. But after losing tons of money and time, they realize

that trading less frequently on the higher time frames is the

right way to making consistent money in the Forex market.
