How do we describe our work to layman such that our words are related to automation of trading. Maybe describe only trading forex pairs.


I face difficulty in explaining it to noob crowds who think i am sort of some agent whose only struggle is getting clients for investment so i may gain from commission. They judge my job as something cheap.


I am a 'day trader' or 'swing trader' is not a good answer for them. ppl relate trader to supplier of some sort. I need to tell what i do in fewest words such that my words are relating to automation of trading and limiting my expertise to forex pairs and may be relating to exchanges i work with and not local in country bank exchanges.

i hope you all do relate with how judging ppl can be when they don't understand your work.
Even today only a few a ppl at local supermarket may understand what day trading is. So pls try helping.
Ty.

Tell them that you buy an asset at a low price and sell it at a higher price.

In short, terms tell them what Forex is and that the market is going up or down and you are making a profit by predicting those movements. That should be the easiest way.
When I decided to open a trading consulting Company, we even got a coworking space new york, and I thought that people would understand what we are trying to promote and how the money is made. Guess what? Everybody told us that we are scams, then we chose a different approach, investing in marketing, and the company couldn't run better.

You're right, that's what happens.

We are traders or investors, why invent new words when the meaning remains the same.

Does it matter???
Our business is so interesting and versatile, so complex and unusual, I enjoy what I do and that is the most important thing really.
