This thread pique my interest, I just checked my own account bio and found that I have been trading for 10 years. I wouldn't say I'm profitable nor successful now. But I'm living quite a comfortable life with forex trading as my side income 『Which sometimes it will exceed my main』

Just try not to be emotional and accept the loss and you will be fine.

Strive to archive more.

trade about 15 years ... with good results only in last 8 years ..


first 7 years with no great result ...


____

99,9% lose or have no result .. or about 0-2% month if take total years.


and only 0,1% can get 5% month or more with small stable DD no more than 8-10%.
I talk about 5-7-10 years of stable trading.

20% of this 0,1% .. about 20% may be smaller have stable profitable robots ...

so in total it about 0,02% ... - of course if someone really have profitable robot he NEVER sell that.


this is reality of market ... very very small percent of people can trade stable in profit many years,
more than 50% of success trading is in psychology ... if you have profitable manual system it not mean than you get profit if you can't control yourself ... main enemy is not market or crowd of bulls or bears ... main enemy, main 'dragon' is inside yourself ... if you can control this dragon - you control the market.

Three years tarding and Two years in profit now once i stuck to a system and focused on what pairs or indices i liked and learned, earning nicely from £3000 account that all you need if you are consistent ! every month i bank my profits and start again ! and having a daily target helps to once thats hit i close my laptop down ! and wait til next day ....
Psycology is everything .....!

That is very good and encouraging to hear
£3000 seems like an account size that could potentially generate anything from £150 to £600 monthly (if assuming a 5-20% growth target each month). Obviously that would also depend on your risk appetite as well.
What do you when trades do not go your way? Do you continue to aim for your daily target or is there also a maximum loss that you are willing to accept?

I've been a student to forex for about 10 years and like us all lost and gained many times. Mostly losses, until about five years ago but still never jumped in 100% until this year. I finally dedicated myself ( mainly due to the shut down we had in USA) I so wish I jumped in 100% 5 years ago. But hey better late than never at all.

I have been trading Forex for 7 years. Out of these 7 years, I have been consistently profitable for 3 years. Profits can be made by maintaining risk. I use 1: 2 risk-reward in every trade.

12 years but from one bank or institutions to another, I don't accept contract more than a year and i always like the clause that allows me freedom to trade do third parties, although I'm not allow to display statements and that will lead to contract termination and breach of trust with heavy fines.

Hey guys,

I started trading a live account last Friday.

I have been trading since the COV-19 hit (after I lost my painting business) for 6 months on a demo - out of which profitably for the past 10 weeks straight (10% target per week - smashed it every week). I gotta say, it`s not the same with real money - first trade I bought a bearish engulfing right after it formed - that`s how nervous I was. Luckily it turned out to be BE trade with miniscule profit after coming all the way down to 2 points from my SL. I`m strict when talking about risk management - strictly no more than 1% Risk, managing Reward as per price action - but aiming for at least 2:1 reward to risk ratio before placing the order. I had a great trade on GBPJPY on Wednesday (5:1) and extra few good ones (3:1s and 2:1s) throughout the week. I have been very jittery though - missing opportunities left, right and centre. But, I`m trying to focus on the positive rather than negative. Life is great - hit my target this week with zero negative days, learning more as I go. Plus, I genuinely enjoy sitting in front of the charts and observing price action - and when I am not trading with real money, I am paper trading in my head.

I am up close to 14% for the first week. I`ve never been happier. But, I need a mentor - with my increasing understanding I realise how very little I know ... Is there anyone amongst you with a lot of patience and experience willing to teach me how to become an ICBM?

Thank you,
Benjy.

Keep up the good work
Patience and perseverance are key
Do not worry about missing trades but be sure to continue to stick to your plan
It doesn't even seem like you need a mentor but definitely good to have someone who can mentally support you
Being nervous is normal but what I'd recommend is start with small positions/low risk and as you gain confidence you can scale it up
Happy to connect nonetheless
Good luck with the last day of the week tomorrow and be wary of the NFP!

A random note as well,
I started a new strategy at the beginning of November last year after a 3 year break from Forex
I'm happy to say that it has been performing well albeit some set-backs and I will be celebrating the 1 year anniversary of trading this system at the end of this new month
The time has simply flown by
Happy trading everyone & may the odds be ever in your favour

If there is any decision I took decade plus ago, it's getting to be a Trader, if you become professional, trading is so easy as you can make profits and leave. But if you are not, you will always end up losing. Becoming a proffesional is not a day job, it took me more than a year as far back as 2007

Maintaining profits every day, week, season,... is very difficult if you haven't a solid sytem of trading. That means you could spend a lot of time (years) to be a pro.

My experience is my treasure. I spent more than 5 years, and specialy the last 3.

I recommend to traders tired of get loss (won/lost won/lost ....) but at the end few profit or even few lost, that they apply for a good signal plan.

That was my lifesaver. Now I am a profitable trader. Thaks God.
99% of winning rate is possible !!!

As long as you keep walking on the right path and will stick to your original plan, it will be just fine. Don’t worry and trust your instincts. Starting with small positions will help boost your confidence. Good luck, it doesn’t look like you need a mentor.

Profits only increase with experience, at least they get consistent. So anybody who has been trading for about a decade will continue to do so.

I cannot recommend the book, 'Trading in the Zone' by Mark Douglas, strongly enough
I finally finished this book after discovering it 8 years ago and it teaches some absolutely incredible lessons that will resonate with many of you. The book touches on the 5 fundamental truths of trading:

1. Anything can happen.

2. You don’t need to know what is going to happen next to make money.

3. There is a random distribution between wins and losses for any given set of
variables that define an edge.

4. An edge is nothing more than an indication of a higher probability of one thing
happening over another.

5. Every moment in the market is unique.

In order to be consistent, 7 principles must be followed:

1. I objectively identify my edges.

2. I predefine the risk of every trade.

3. I completely accept the risk or I am willing to let go of the trade.

4. I act on my edges without reservation or hesitation.

5. I pay myself as the market makes money available to me.

6. I continually monitor my susceptibility for making errors.

7. I understand the absolute necessity of these principles of consistent success
and, therefore, I never violate them.

Continuous over a long period of time, yes there are many traders who can do this
But continuous each time a trade is placed? No - you cannot win every trade, that is obvious
