My trading career started firstly as a hobby trading stocks, with no much of success. A good friend to the family, who was a Forex trader introduced me to the Forex market. After going thru all the benefits that the Forex market have, specially the leverage part of it, and that I didn’t need a huge amount of money to trade, I switched to Forex trading with him as a mentor.
I was lucky to have a mentor from the very start and got many good advices that of course I didn’t follow strictly which led me to be humbled by Mr. Market as many traders do in the beginning.
After struggling thru the first 2-3 years and starting to follow the advices, and strictly following my trading rules I started to get good results.
