Full-Time Trading

Traders are sometimes driven to full-time status because they are tired of having a boss.  And while you won’t have a boss, you will often work harder than when you did have a boss, so it’s important to consider that before quitting your 9 to 5. You will spend a lot of time looking at charts, and honestly need to devote a considerable amount of time to education in general.  You will lose some money and you will make some mistakes, but it’s all part of the process.       

Don’t Trade Simply Because You Have An Account 

When Rick decided to get serious about trading, there were a few things that he recognized. For starters, it wasn’t going to be easy, or fast. He learned to build a watchlist and then let the trades come to him. You can’t trade, just for the sake of trading…or because you have six monitors!   It’s important to find a system that works for you.  That takes time to discover, so don’t give up just because something doesn’t work immediately.  

Magic Indicators

Guess what? They don’t exist!  The “magic” happens when you learn how to use your indicators to make a profit.  You need to look at price action, or find a specific strategy that will work for you.  You must know and understand what kind of trader you are and in what kind of market you are able to thrive.  Ultimately, the “Holy Grail” in trading isn’t an indicator, it’s YOU!
