|How did you learn to trade?|
|Using simulator, then losing real money and correcting my mistakes.|
|What is your trading style?|
|Technical swing trading for Forex. Longer term fundamental outlook for stocks and ETFs. I trade Forex heavily, analyzing charts daily, stocks and ETFs I analyse less frequently, holding positions for months or years.|
|What advice would you give new traders?|
|Backtest. Perpetually optimize your system but don’t over correct it for one-off situations.
Trading psychology may be the hardest thing to master. Emotional trading, taking profits too early, and “revenge trading” will virtually guarantee further losses. Trade like a robot.
