A couple weeks ago I took up the challenge from some mates at Global Trader to start trading.
The markets have been very up and down with the chaos in Japan and numerous other global happenings. I am told not an easy time to play like I am!
I have had some very cool guidance from Travis helping me with my trades. Have done well on 2 occasions shorting the Euro and not so well on Brent. The main aim is to learn as much as possible and that I am.
What I have learnt so far
Don’t use emotions - Lost on Harmony due to no common sense
Always use the fundamentals - Trends come and go, markets go up and down and it’s very hard to follow. Trust is the basics
I am not the expert - Being new and green means I am only scratching the surface on understanding
Ask questions - Travis has been world class in explaining things to me and has given me a more realistic outlook on Trading
The goal in the next couple weeks is to learn how to follow influential people though ‘THE WIRE’ (a social networking app on www.gt247.com
). Will let you know how it goes!
