Learning to trade successfully
The first thing I had to learn, in order to become a successful trader, was how to respect the Stop-Loss. When people start trading and are looking at others on social media, for example, it seems as if everyone is winning huge sums of money at every turn. You never see any losses. That, however, is so far from reality. Every trader is going to see losses. No one is successful 100% of the time. One day, when you realize that losses are a big part of trading, you will finally learn how to plan for those losses early…you plan where your “Stop” is going to be, before you even take a trade. When you learn to do this, it’s very freeing, and you gain a level of comfort when you know you aren’t in over your head in trades. Then, you can focus on figuring out how to take some profits. It’s hard at first, but being able to deal with losses is something that every good trader needs to master.
I own gold for the long term. I have physical gold. I’ll always own gold. I’m a big believer in having it as an asset. This is probably a great time to buy too, as it is closely linked to the dollar. Right now the dollar is very extended against the Euro and other currencies. When the dollar pulls back and other currencies strengthen, gold will rally again. It’s not going anywhere at the moment because the dollar is strong. For now, other countries can’t afford to buy it. I don’t think the dollar will reverse in the near future, but there will be a change eventually and the price of gold is going to go up once again.
I don’t actually hold any because for me the verdict is still out. I do, however, think that crypto is here to stay and will be a big part of our lives in a few years down the road. Our best bet would probably be dollar cost averaging with the bigger blue chip crypto names like Bitcoin, Etherium, etc. Just start scaling in…low priced, high priced…so that you get a good average price over the course of the next several years.
