|How many years have you been trading?|
|What inspired you to get into trading?|
|I was inspired by the thought of being able to work from home & I am about to achieve this goal.|
|How did you learn to trade?|
|I learnt the hard way , by opening a spread bet account thinking that it looked easy. Then after blowing my cash I realised it was a lot easier to lose than it is to win.
So I have been to London on a few courses & also done online courses.
But my main education has been time & practice , gaining experience.
|What is your trading style?|
|I would say my trading style that has built up over the years is “hedge trading” . I like to cover my positions.
Another part of my style is longer term recovery/or pullback trading , so looking at a market that has had or i think is about to have a big move.
This could be a recovery of a stock for example.
I also use chart indicators.
|What advice would you give new traders?|
|Practice on a demo account & make your mistakes with pretend money.
Build & practice a strategy that works for you & stick to it.
Don’t get emotional.
Learn to read charts.
