To me trading may be difficult and easy at same time, it's difficult if the trader doesn't love what his doing and ease if the trader really loves what his doing. So trading is all about Mindset.

It's not exactly true. You can't rely on mindset to trade good.

Ah, some people enjoy it exactly because it's not easy - they like a challenge.

New traders opening an account won't have problems.

First - the good news
This is that the mechanics of trading are as simple as can be. New traders opening an account with a spread betting firm won’t have any problems at all. Most trading platforms are very well designed, intuitive and simple to use.

Allied to the mechanics of trading are the methodologies that traders employ. These too can be very simple. The ‘KISS’ acronym (Keep It Simple, Stupid!) is one that crops up so often, that it’s a cliché on trading forums like T2W. So, simple to use trading platforms and simple trading methodologies are very much the order of the day.

Now the bad news
The headline question implies something beyond the mere mechanics of trading or developing a trading methodology. The sub-text is: how difficult is it to trade profitably and consistently over the long term? The bottom line is that it’s extremely difficult for most people. The reasons for this, along with how you can avoid being one of the many who struggle, are examined in the Long Answer.
I am trading options in the US with Fidelity; I did not find it easy to get permission to trade options, especially spreads. I now want my daughter, a UK resident, to open an account in the UK to trade option spreads in the US. '

Which brokerages does anyone suggest? I have found both Fidelity and TDAmeritrade to be good in the US. Thanks

I have never been their client but if they are regulated they should be ok. Marketmaker or not.

I need a UK brokerage for trading in US.

I am trying to interest my daughter in options trading. She is a US citizen, married to a French citizen and they are living in the UK at present. I am not having much luck in finding a brokerage that she can use to trade option spreads. I plan to help her learn the business, but really could use advice on getting started with a broker and permission to trade spreads. Thanks

It is not easy, that is for sure.

I manage to keep trading successfully after a long and hard training with my broker. I think it is so important, especially if you not coming from the finance world.
I think the secret in education, learning methods and playing with "60 second" trades to keep it light.

Cheers!

Very well said.
I want to add that forex trading has a long learning procedure,it can take a bit of time, but we need to be patient.You should take time to focus on learn and practice.The more you will be taught and practice the more you will be a skillful trader.
