Can you really get rich trading Forex? The answer is yes – anyone has the potential but not everyone does but the good news is anyone can make a great second income and maybe you will have what it takes to become one of the super traders. If you understand the points in this article, you can enjoy Forex trading success.
95% of traders lose money do they lose because they don’t have the potential to win? No they lose because they get the wrong education and another key factor they neglect is the importance of mindset. Let’s look at these points in more detail.
Forex trading is a specifically learned skill and that’s a fact. You don’t need to be a nerd or have a college degree, anyone can learn to win and this was proved by trading legend Richard Dennis.
To prove that anyone could learn with the right education, he taught a group of people who had never traded before to trade. His pupils ranged from a security guard to a lady clerk and he taught them in just two weeks, they then went on to make millions in real profits. So how did they do it?
They had a good mentor of course but the system Dennis taught was simple. It was a long term trend following system based on breakout trading which is a timeless way to make money. What most traders don’t understand though is – simple systems work better than complex ones because they have fewer elements to break, in the face of brutal market conditions and anyone can learn a simple system.
So if anyone can learn a simple system and win why do so many traders lose?
Dennis knew the answer and it’s you can have a system which can make money but you need to apply it with discipline to make money and he therefore focused on making sure they had total confidence in it and could follow it with discipline. Its a fact, that most traders lose because they can’t keep their emotions out of their trading but when discipline breaks down, you will lose.
95% of traders lost 25 years ago and still lose today and the reason is simple – despite all the advances we have seen in technology and forecasting, traders will always lack discipline, its in their nature.
So how do you learn to trade with discipline?
You of course need confidence in what your doing but you must also have the mindset to take your losses and keep them small. Taking losses is not a failing, the market will give them to you but if you take them cheerfully, the market will reward you with some great trends and you can trade them to cover your losses and give you a great overall gain and second income.
If you want to trade Forex successfully, get a simple method and then choose to trade with discipline and you can enjoy currency trading success, it really is that simple.
