Henry Ford said “If money is your hope for independence, you will never have it. The only real security that a man can have in the world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability.”

We need a reserve of knowledge, experience and ability in forex trading, so we can be recession proof. When that happens, we will work only because we wish to, not because we need to.
