First of all, to all haters. I am not trying to sell/promote/market any stuffs here. If you find this post not to your liking, please leave it alone. I would like to start off my journey as someone who has lost lots of money in IM courses that only profits two types of people. 1. Those who sells it. 2. Those who promotes it. No matter whether it is adsense (an unofficial underpaid big G employee), or CPA (only for those with big list and deep pocket), or even offline maketer (but why the heck are you doing offline when you want a passive online system in the first place), you need the one of the following. 1. Time 2. Money 3. Commitment Simply puts, Time + Money = Commitment I am not against it but committing your time and money into someone else algorithm or system seems stupid. It is no different working with your employer or getting a job. It is just that there is no one to boss you around or manage your time but you are still dependent on them for a living. So why forex? 1. There is no central authority to issue animal updates once in awhile. 2. You don't need a list. 3. You don't need to chase wsoes/courses to learn. (babypips is free for all) So I decide to venture into forex after reading some of the inspirational threads here. And here is my result. I started off with small figures to train my patience and discipline in managing the trades. I can comfortably said that I have build it from several dollars into tens now. Once I build it into hundreds, I will let you guys know again. The key to a successful forex trade doesn't lies in copying others' trade. It lies in understanding how the majority are thinking and work against it. Recommended resources --------------------------- Reminiscences of a Stock Operator --------------------------- I will update the list once there are more people who are interested to learn more. P.S Please do not pm me as I can't pm back with a small post count. Thanks. P.S.S If you feel you have any valuable knowledge to share, feel free to share it here too. Thanks. Disclaimer ---------- I am NOT a seasoned trader (guru in IM term) nor qualified in any way to be one. As in all ventures that involves a large amount of gut nerving risks on your end, please exercise great caution and financial responsibility when carrying out such trades. There is nothing as 100% accuracy on predictability rate as no one controls the market at will. If you find that you are more apt in IM, so be it. As much as a fish is apt in swimming in an ocean as a monkey is apt in climbing a tree, there is no absolutely right and wrong way in making money as long as your moral compass is kept intact and you are not breaking any laws and regulations with any parties that you are involved in. I have dabbled in IM before. Making fake reviews and relying on an arrogant zoo keeper that is too big to lose just isn't my cup of tea. This thread should be taken as reference or a pint of salt and I am not responsible for any losses or damages incurred on your end. (Even if you lose your hair over sleepless nights) Thanks again for your patience and time to read this thread and I sincerely wish everyone all the best in everything that they do.
