Trading Is A Profession

Trading Is A Profession

The profession of trading must be viewed and respected in the same manner in which all other skilled professions are. To succeed in trading profitably and consistently, you must invest time, effort, and money towards educating yourself. As any successful trader will tell you, you never really learn until you trade with your own hard-earned cash on the line.

The profession of trading must be viewed and respected in the same manner in which all other skilled professions are. To succeed in trading profitably and consistently, you must invest time, effort, and money towards educating yourself. As any successful trader will tell you, you never really learn until you trade with your own hard-earned cash on the line. That’s not to say that you should simply open an account and dive in, but rather appreciate that even after you’ve read a bookshelf’s worth of trading and technical analysis publications, attended trader shows, and signed up with a reputable educator, you’ve simply begun your Forex trading education.
 
Remember: if profitable trading were easy, everyone would have made their fortune from it by now. Just as you would not expect to find overnight success in any other profession, do not expect trading to be simple, or easy.
