Ending My Full Time Trader Dream
As I mentioned before, I had many dreams and one of them is becoming the greatest full-time trader (FTT) ever lives. But, it doesn’t work out that easily and I’m gonna end this FTT dream actually. It makes me cannot focus on anything in my work since I trade using small timeframes such as timeframe 5 and 15 minutes.
However, It’s not like I want to trade small timeframe, it’s because the MetaTrader 4 only have a tradable timeframe for 1, 5 and 15 minutes. When things going against my analysis, this is the time when I can’t focus on anything and start losing money. Probably, I lose around $1500 USD and win around $2000 USD.
The bad thing is, It took me 2 weeks to get that $2000 USD and lost $1500 USD in 3 days. What a bad day and that is what you get from trying to become Full-time trader (FTT) after reading High Probability MT4/MT5 Trading Method and babypips. To even think that I can become good at trading after reading $10 Dollar book and babypips is also a big mistake for me. But, that is life!

3 Reason I Stop Trading MT4/MT5.
1. I can’t focus on other things.
It’s too emotional and stressful. I can’t handle the stress if losing money while floating even though sometimes my analysis is on track. See the red colors is making my heart harder to breathe. It’s better for me to stop. Forex trading is not for the faint of heart. Some people take months and even years to become good at it.
2. Forex seminar or class is very pricey.
Yes, sometimes I said to myself, maybe I should learn from other Forex Master and paid for their class. There is no way reading 10 USD book is gonna make myself the greatest forex trader alive right? But, after a while of thinking about it, it’s just not worth my time and money.
Forex trading is not for me. I just love the process of making money from your laptop wherever and whenever you are. However, losing money whenever and wherever you are is not my thing.
I create and choose my own path of making money by not succumbing on making money only but also doing something that I enjoy doing. Since I am going to do it for a long time, this is the best choice I could have made.
