I totally agree with these tips. I especially liked the thought of the internet gurus. In most cases they are just scammers. I can also share some thoughts of mine and hopefully, they will be useful for the newbies to the market. First of all, it is of vital importance to concentrate on learning rather than getting profits at the early stages of trading. I mean that surely everyone comes to forex wishing making money sitting at home without any bosses. However, in the beginning you should learn in order to make profits in the future. That is why you should start with demo account, then trading microlots and gradually increase your position size. More often than not beginners experience a feeling of lost opportunities when some of their deals on demo account become successful. However, this idea is very dangerous if you don't really know how the things are done here. Secondly, you should make a trading diary when you will write down all of your thoughts which precede making trading decisions. It is of great importance because it will help you analyze your trading strategies and the criteria which make you take this or that decision.
This is the statement I relate to the most, after so long learning and building i feel i have so much knowledge but lack the confidence in my own ability. 'If you can't spot the liquidity then you are the liquidity.'

2) Social media “gurus” often don’t actually trade themselves and make their money conning the vast majority of people coming into trading looking for quick cash – don’t get caught out!
3) Nobody can give you a ready-made strategy and then send you off to start making money, A strategy is something personal to you in terms of time, risk tolerance, psychology, speed of the market etc. Take bits from different sources and then take the time to formulate and test your own strategy that fits your own parameters. There is no “one-size fits all” in trading.
4) Trading of any type is NOT A GET RICH QUICK SCHEME! It takes time for the above reasons to first learn the basics and then formulate a strategy, test it thoroughly and implement it.
5) Set achievable goals – when you first start break even at the end of the month might be a great target for you and that is fine. Not losing long term is priority number one to protect your capital. Don’t compare your 1000hrs of practice to another person’s 10,000hrs. Be better than you were 6 months ago and focus on that.
What else have you all learned in your time trading?
I agree but I find a broker is important it’s about finding one that works for you
Fascinating notes actually. I would argue with you because of the very first note. In my opinion, brokers are really important, because they not just provide you with conditions for trading activity, but also they affect your mood. If you are not satisfied with the broker and the conditions which it provides, then perhaps you will not be in a very good mood and you will feel inconveniences. Actually, I judge according to my experince. I had plenty of brokers and I always had to change them because of the conditions. However, we shouldn't forget that all of us are individuals and we all have different goals and attitude toward trading.
