Well there’s no definite answer as every trader has different experiences. Some take months and some take years to learn trading properly so it varies among various traders. It solely depends on the trader’s capabilities how fast they learn.

True, it can take a while to get used to the market and learn before you can earn consistently. It takes hours of effort and work.

I believe it differs from person to person; some are quick learners, while others take their time. However, even if it is taking time, do not rush or hurry.

It can take up to a year to get familiar with the market conditions. Traders must be prepared to change their train of thought when needed. While majority expert traders talk about how learning is a constant process in trading, there are those who wish to get done with it. This is the wrong attitude. They will lose only because of the mindset.

I’d say that depends on various factors. It depends on the skill, learning speed that one has, mental aptitude, emotional attitude, mathematical aptitude, risk management skills, time management skills, etc.

The time taken to learn would depend upon the person’s learning ability and calibre to a great extent. If you are a fast learner with good grasping power then you will naturally be able to learn in a short span of time. Forex trading is not just about theoretical knowledge and there is more practical learning involved. In order to become a successful trader one will need experience in the forex market that comes with hands-on practice. Use a demo account first and once you get comfortable with trading switch to a real trading account with a small amount of money. I am saying to keep the amount small because the forex market is very volatile and the risk of loss is much higher for a newbie trader. Start with a good strategy and don’t forget to set up a risk management system to minimise the potential losses. Forex trading also involves some psychological aspects apart from the fundamental and technical concepts. A trader should be patient and rational at all times with an ability to control their emotions. When all of these traits come together with knowledge and skills, you will be done with the learning process which is a long one.

There is nothing specific about it. If it were, people would have known this, and they would have started trading after that period. But it is not so.
It depends on various factors like your learning speed and capability, your goals, and whether you look at forex trading as something worthwhile or you take it as a get-rich-quick scheme.
If you take the right approach towards learning forex, you’ll learn quickly, and if not, you will take time to learn.

Honestly, It took me more than 4 months but it was worth it in the end. And I am still learning.

The length of time it takes to become a profitable forex trader varies from person to person. To become consistently profitable took a long time for me, maybe 5 years or so. You have to be extremely systematic with a lot of discipline which took the longest for me. The market is always changing, therefore it's only normal to change your plan and learn how to spot a good trend. You won't be able to totally avoid risk, so stay vigilant and diligent. I recommend finding a strategy. There are plenty of free ones out there, open a demo account, and begin practising. Once you nail down the basics, open a live account and start trading really small lot sizes. Trade the smallest lot sizes until you have made at least 100 perfect trades. You can then start raising your lot size to start making a little more money. Remember there is no rush. You are developing a skill that once perfected, offers the ultimate in freedom.

Varies from person to person! So many become profitable in just one year while others struggle to make some good returns even after trading for 10 years. It is all about your strategies, trading markets, and the currency pairs. That’s why I believe that you must be very choosy when making choices.F irst, it depends on how experienced you are in forex trading. Also, if your emotions have a control over you more than your logical thinking, then you can’t get profits. If you apply effective measures and strategies for trading and also take care of your risk factors and profit motives, then you can earn good profits.

If you are just starting out, it might take you anywhere from six months to an entire year before you start seeing a profit. But, there is no specific time period that can guarantee to give you results.

Depends on individual. It is so individual based. But of utmost importance is mastering your strategy in and out; whether you doing supply and demand, trend trading, or whatever strategy ,,,master it. Then spend hours and hours of screen observing charts and price movement. Start small. Keep it simple. Keep few indicators if any...1 or 2. Above all align your mind with price action...don't try to force or manipulate the market. Just execute your strategy or your edge.

Take all the time you need to learn and practice. The best traders are experienced. Only through trial and error can you understand what works for you and what doesn’t. Mistakes are a part of life, as long as you learn from them and make amends, how will you know what kind of a trader you are? It is possible but only through time. So, construct patience and stay composed.

It takes a while to understand market conditions, but once you do then there is nothing that can come in the way between you reaching that goal and increasing expectations. It can take up to a year, even to get accustomed to the basics.

It depends on what kind of trader you are. Those who are fast learners and understand the forex market within a short span of time can become consistent profitable traders faster than others. Sometimes we need more time to learn and get a grasp of trading.

To become consistent, one must master 3 things ; Risk management , good trading Strategy and proper trading psychology . You can be in the market for 10 years, if you are not discipline and not respecting your trading plan , you will be inconsistent so being consistent shouldnt be measured by years but rather how well you work on yourself day by day.

Reading the forum, I realized that on average it takes six months to get a good understanding of trading.
