Trading education is something that I am hugely passionate about and it’s something I want to get into to pass on my knowledge and skills to develop independent profitable traders.
Last week I spoke to Jason Graystone, Professional Currency Trader & Entrepreneur about my journey into the financial markets, finding the right trading education and my plans for the future.
Like everyone starting out, I gravitated towards YouTube to find out more, but very quickly realised that 95% of content on this subject was around ‘getting rich quick’, ‘driving a Lambo at the end of week one’ – pipe dreams and unrealistic expectations. I just couldn’t find anyone that I wanted to invest my time and money in. That is, before I came across both Jason and Akil Stokes.
Initially, I thought that this would be easy, and after blowing my live account trying to trade one of the most volatile days in the economic calendar (US Non Farm Payroll) , I realised that without structured trading education, guidance and 100% transparency, it would all come falling down around me.
Even though I am now a consistently profitable FOREX Trader, the markets teach me something new everyday. I will always be learning from my mistakes, building on my mental capabilities and most importantly documenting all my trades in my journal to look back on performance and how I can improve on my day to day trading activities.
But trading education alone may not be enough, for me, surrounding myself with like-minded individuals in a community and holding myself accountable for my actions allowed me to successfully play the toughest mind game on the planet.
Check out the conversation and I hope you get some value from it. As always, if I can be of any assistance, or if you’re looking for one-to-one coaching or mentorship, please drop me a message and let’s start a conversation.
