Excellent warts and all article. Having another source of income or skills to fallback on, key to keeping going.
As well as coping with the inevitable drawdowns, getting used to putting so much effort in for so little reward has to be overcome.
Good luck - you seem to have the right "minerals" to be successful.

Unbelievable - someone just gave my article a zero out of 10 rating - how else can the average rating drop from 8.1 to 7.9 by one new review?

Clearly I need to improve my writing skills (or my story!)

Well it is now at 8.2 so not sure what happened there and it is not possible to give a rating of less than 1

Hi George,
You probably wrote something intelligent and sensible in a post (as you always do, of course!) and someone chose to take exception to your comments and expressed their displeasure by giving your article a low rating. This happened to me many moons ago with the Trading Plan Template which, for the first few years of its life was consistently rated 9+ and in the top two or three highest rated articles. Then, around 2009 I think it was, it suddenly dropped to the low 7s on a surge of fresh ratings. I forget the exact figures now, but something like thirty of the previous fifty ratings were for 1 point and a further ten or so for just 2 points! Nearly of them were made over a very short period of time and by new members who - for the most part - hadn't made a single post. I never found out whether it was something in the article itself that was so disagreeable or whether it was as a result of discussions on the boards. Either way, the article's ratings never recovered and it now languishes in the mid 6s.

So, the moral of the tale - such as there is one - is not to take ratings too seriously!

Tim.

excellent and honest article

good to read such an honest piece ......I totally respect and empathise with the journey ......real authenticity

always happy to chew some cud in 2018 if you want to .....contact me at fxcorrelator@gmail.com or my website

ive been consulting again for a couple of years in industry (Iíve been a qualified accountant for many years)....but now planning to go back to full time trading again in 2018

also donít give a fig a about ratings......which I suspect you donít ......I have no idea what my ratings are at t2win......I did a profile a while back I think.......but with nearly 2million views on my main forex thread here I always assume itís been of use to someone or other

Trading is hard work and achieving consistent profitability is even harder. i have been trading for 17 years and I can easily empathise with your journey. Your honesty is refereshing considering the BS that is out there in cyberspace.
In trading FX, news and fundamentals are very important to success - a point which I realised very late in my career.
