I've been trading for 14 years. Spent a lot of time on the CME website reading about products. Read every article of every piece of news about the products I like to trade. Also did plenty of google searches as well. Slowly got more familiar with various markets and how fundamental news affects each one differently.

I purchased a few courses, but mostly trial and error, and have blown up my account many times. Still trying to find that long-term solution. Very difficult to find something that works consistently, and year round. Summer months seem to slow down, and market doesn't seem to move as much.

I am convinced that, you as trader, have to find your own tradings system . You as trader have to feel comfotable and must trust your system 200% and al that to make money.
I never buy a system. I prefer to give money to a system thats learing you yo be consistant profitable. No need to copy trades as you learn nothing with that.

I learned about trading because I didn't like the wild ride that resulted with "Buy & Hold"
I figured there had to be a better way, and there is.

Having spent thousands of dollars due to my shiny objects syndrome, the only thing I have consistently done right in my trading career is watch MitchRay I have learned more, and made more progress with understanding Technical Analysis from him for free, than anything I have done with the most expensive indicators. And he has never charged me a dime. Of course, I could pay for his monthly subscription, but I dont trade enough Bitcoin related assets to make it worth my time.

I learned my trading foundation following Mack of Price Action. I followed him and still do but not as much since 2014 when I became a member here. I now venture out on the internet on occasion to see other traders methods and have implemented a couple into my trading. Overall I learned by the Internet and spent probably less than $300 on Mack's web site and his literature.

Follow your Plan

I don't follow any special system, I do spend a lot of time reading and watching and talking. In the end I follow my intuition and instincts and go the way the knowledge I have after that takes me. It is a full time job but can be very well paying if I stick with it. Rough to do right now that I have lost a wife after all the years of her Alzheimer.
