I will tell you not my opinion but my personal experience.
It will took a lot of backtesting... I personaly backtested more than 50 different strategies in 10 year terms, I mean you open chart 10 years ago and start backtesting until you get to actual date.
It will took a lot of losses... a lost more than 50 000 €, yeah I earned them back, but it tooks years!
It will took a lot of changes in your mind, you will need to became a different person. Strictly follow your own rulles and never act like you are a winner. You will never win against markets, you can only participate on the trend.
It will took a lot of downfalls, if you invest money that are not yours, you will go to the bottom. Trading is one of the hardest types of business in the world, you will not succeed if you will not working very hard.
It will took a lot of time to educate your self, to try different types of strategies, to backtest them
It is really a long way. Nothing will be easy, you will try a lot of scammers that want your money. I´m talking about brokers, signal providers, forex gurus, forex copied systems. Scam is everywhere don´t be blind.
I trade only naked charts simple breakouts, triangles, S/R zones on daily charts. If you will find something that is working for you, this is just start. You can not stop in education of your self. Nothing works perfectly whole time. There are plenty of strategies, that works only one year maybe less. If you will find something that works, someone on the other side will try to get your stops. That´s the main reason why you enter the trend, then the price hits your SL and get in your favour way....
And I want to apologize for my english
