1. Get a great coach and mentor who has been in the industry for a long time and knows what they are doing. Do everything they say and copy everything they do. Hopefully you find one who is willing to train you. I know of only one company here in Sydney offering anything close to professional training in an institutional trading environment. Msg me for details.
2. Work hard to learn everything you can and get right into the industry. Talk to traders, socialize with traders, go to the beach with traders.. make it your life. You become who you spend most of your time around.
3. Don't use ea's or robots unless they are proven in an institutional trading environment by people that have invested heavily in the technology I.e hedge fund traders. Good luck finding one of these! Your brain is much better than any ea.
4. Do something to increase your self control and discipline. Martial arts, go on a diet and stick to it, go to the gym and stick with it, military training, etc. You will know you have it when you can put on trades, change your trade direction anytime, and not trade when there is no opportunity, without thinking twice about it. With no emotional connection to an individual trade. Individual trades do not make the trader. It's the risk profile and account equity volatility that matters to investors.
