A number of people have been asking this question for quite some time now. Some think it is easy, while others believe it is too difficult to become one. The answer to this question is simple; the amount of time to become a forex trader comes down to individual circumstances. Always remember, the market is dynamic meaning there is no one-size-fits-all type of situation. Here are some factors that can affect the period of your journey into becoming a forex trader.
Your mindset plays a significant role in determining if you would become a successful forex trader. There are a lot of people who are led on to believe that it is easy to make a profit in the marketplace and expected to earn each time you trade. This mindset is incorrect. With this mindset, it is easy for the trader to become frustrated and end up losing more than he would gain. In the end, they wreck their accounts.
Trading is something that needs patience, strategy, and most importantly, education. It is not impossible to be successful, but you have to understand what you are about to embark. Always start with the “I can learn this” mindset, and it’s a process. With all the hard work you will be doing, great rewards are possible, and it will move you forward to become a better trader. Learn to love trading and persevere to become better each day.
Your Trading Strategy
You should pick the trading strategy that would suit you and your lifestyle. Remember that you do not have to have the same strategy as everyone around you. Pick a strategy that you are comfortable with, and that best suits your needs then stick to it. Again, there is no one size fits all solution in this industry. Know when to apply a specific strategy and know when not to. Whatever you decide, be consistent in it.
Consistency is important when you are trading, but it does not solely base there. Your capital investments play a significant role. Imagine this, you can get a good return each month, and you are consistent with everything, but you only have $100 in your forex account. Your return is only 30% a month which is only $30 per month. Yes, it’s a decent return, but it would take much time and patience until you find this industry to become your staple.
The question of how long it takes to learn Forex trading it will always be “It depends.”. There are no two traders who have the same work ethic, thinking, and condition. One thing that can help beginners in their Forex journey is education and mentoring. Learn and understand what Forex and it’s potential. With this, you would know what to avoid and what to do in certain circumstances.
