Quite a few people have asked me where I have been successful in the past, and have come across my background in the Forex Industry. So I've written a little something to get people started along the path should they choose this route to reach their Infiniti Point.
http://www.babypips.com is a fantastic and FREE place to start instead of paying thousands for some of those other beginner programs, realize that there is a lot of information on the internet that you can get for free before starting out.
Technical methods are only 20% of the true learning. Mastering your emotions as cheesy as it sounds is the real major battle. Just stick to a system - paper/demo trade until you're comfortable and always test / measure and journal so you can have a proper foundation to look back upon.
I made my first million in the forex industry - it's also the place where I lost the biggest. Just keep at it though and if you've got the patience and the will to keep your spirits up, it's a viable strategy at financial freedom.
Just bear in mind that the learning curve is a steep one, and you may lose your first few accounts if you don't keep careful. Beware of difficult to deal with brokerage houses. It's one of the main things that nobody tells you about in the learning curve. Trading itself is a both a science and an art, but dealing with corrupt brokerage houses that don't place your trades within a reasonable timeframe is a lesson you don't want to learn the hard way.
Good luck, and happy trading.
Thanks for reading,
P.S. Beware of false trading logs and scams where traders ask for your money and promise you the sun, the moon, and the stars. Remember that YOU must control your own account, should be able to log on and see the trades live (observer account) and should never give control of the money transfers out of the account save for brokerage fees and trader commissions. It's a dangerous world out there - don't forget to watch your back. I'm nowhere near perfect and I've had my own fair share of being taken for a ride.
