The standard of enlightenment on this site continues to deflate ones' stiff resolve to rise to the occasion and concentrate on the rare item that holds the interest firmly to the fore.

Very true. The game is just 10% knowledge, 10% technique but 80% psychology - your own psychology that is, because the only person who can make you lose is yourself. I have to go along with Mark Douglas's thinking when he says almost everything we have absorbed about being a good school pupil or employee or engineer or doctor or whatever, and the values we have learned about earning and using money, are the wrong preparation for being a good trader.

the idea that trading is easy technically is a bit of nonsense to me, yes it is after the fact, but trading in the now is extremely difficult, being able to read properly and take advantage of it is not easy at all, it is a skill, but not only, it is an art form and as in any kind of art form a great injection of creativity is a must.

One thing I found why forex is difficult it is because we have a beating heart and a functioning brain. It is the emotions that we have as humans that makes trading so damn difficult.

Forex trade, as well as any business, requires some effort, knowledge, time. And it's not always easy. Otherwise, all would have been millionaires. Therefore we must be prepared for challenges

Easy to trade but difficult to control your emotions.

I once said to one of my colleagues at work that we tend to trade the way we are and the results speak for themselves. I've seen time and time again how different personalities lead to different trading styles, that's why there is no such thing as "best practice" in trading because it's impossible for the so-called "best" approach to fit in with all personality types. That's why this game is so damn hard because in actual fact you can trade fundamentals and technicals even better than the text books or pros tell you to do, yet the fact is that they also are driven and affected largely sentiment and emotion which is unpredictable and random at best.

Trading is not difficult but to gain its proper knowledge from proper place can be difficult. If you have proper knowledge of market and Forex Trading you can make profit with ease.

Just make sure you dedicate yourself to learn more about this business. And one thing, don't take paid courses because most of them are scams...
