There is a positive correlation between the level of the skills and success in trading. The more skills you have, the better your trading results are. I doubt that there are any successful traders who are completely ignorant of economic and trading aspects and who base their decisions on gut-feeling.
Getting the skills takes lots of time and practice and a lot of people don’t want to put it in. Personally I think the best way to do it is to trade on small accounts rather than demo so you can get a feel for trading with real money.
I'm personally convinced that in trading activity a trader must have a harmony. So, I mean that skills, knowledge and experience must be in harmony. If you have all of these features and you understand that every feature matters a lot, you will be successful. Skills do mean nthing in case of lack of knowledge or experience. The same thing also is with experience. Experience matters nothing in case of lack of knowledge and skills, thus we have to strive to this harmony and develop these features evenly. Only in case of such approach traders can hope on success in trading activity, and actually not only in this activity.
@UweMoench I agree that skills, experience and knowledge are important aspects of trading but I want to add another important element to it which is often underestimated, that is, self-control. It is very common for a trader to weigh down under his emotions and see his strategies failing miserably. A good trader must be able to control his emotions to succeed in trading.
The importance of skills in trading cannot be exaggerated. Trading without skills is a gambling which will lead to the total loss of the deposit. By skills I mean not only the skills to analyse the market, but also skills to manage your money and risks and also to control your psychological state. The most interesting thing is that you cannot just acquire some skills and stop improving yourself. You need to constantly developing your skills in order to catch up with the market which is constantly changing. If you don't change with it, you are sure to lose.
