Many people/trader/member in this forum talks about their desire to become a full time trader. They say that becoming a full time trader will bring their level of living to a better state. And of course, if you are new to this market you would love to become a full time trader, right?
Indeed, becoming a full time trader is everyone's dream.
Becoming a full time trader though, is not an easy task. You gotta have these things first:
1. a strong determination to weather the hardship (the ups and downs) in this market because there will definitely be losing trades, big loss, flat market condition and other hurdles. And without a strong determination you will, without a doubt, turn back on the market and never to return again.
2. a powerful, proven profitable trading strategy to help you make money in the market. Trust me, without this one you will SURELY FAIL. To help you get started, on behalf of MT5 Forex Forum I already made a list of every trading strategy available in this forum to ease you in searching for the trading strategy that suits you and you can find them all in this thread.
One tip from me is this:
Most trading strategy uses 1, 2 or even more indicator. Try to find the version of those indicator that comes with sound alert or email alert. Why? I'll explain this later.
3. practice a lot, adjust the trading strategy to fit you personally and then accumulate valuable trading experience. MT5 Forex Forum as the BEST FOREX FORUM in the world is partnering with InstaForex (the GREATEST BROKER on the planet earth) give you the benefit of making bonus from your participation so you can have trading capital to achieve the goal of having a valuable trading experience. If you are just visiting this forum by chance and have not yet become our member I strongly suggest you to register by using this link (no, I don't use my ref link to get bonus from your membership in this forum ) and then go here before you make a trading account. You should also get familiar with how things work in this forum by clicking and reviewing the links in my signature. Believe me, you can get more than enough money as your trading capital if you follow the rules in this forum.
4. branch out your expertise and become a truly full time trader by offering PAMM service through InstaForex and/or offering ForexCopy service which is also available in InstaForex. Or you can also establish yourself as a powerful forex technical analyst and work for InstaForex.
In point #2 I mentioned about having indicators that came with alerts (sound alert and/or email alert). Why is this important? If you want to become a full time trader you should always stay in touch with the market. Unfortunately, you are not capable of doing so because you are not yet a full time trader so you can't afford sitting in front of the monitor all day long seeking for trading opportunities.
So... the only way to cope with this problem is by using an indicator that comes with sound alert or email alert. If the indicator has sound alert you can do other things with your computer and only watch the chart when there is a sound alerting you that there might be a good opportunity in the market. On behalf of MT5 Forex Forum I have done the hard work for you by collecting all of the indicator available in this forum in this thread so you can find the version that comes with sound/email alert.
If you are away, you can set the indicator(s) to send an email alert so you will be notified whenever there is an opportunity in the market through your smartphone (android-based phones, iphone, blackberry etc) and then you can enter/exit a position by using the trading platform that you already installed in your smartphone.
As you can see... IT IS POSSIBLE to become a full time trader while doing it part time. So why don't you start doing it now?
Now... for you skeptics who obviously have a lot of question and doubt in mind I can only say this:
believe what you want to believe because I will never be able to change your negative attitude. However, note this one thing... there are many people who succeed in this business. Click this to see the recent event that you can verify with InstaForex (and there are many more story like this that went unspotted by me and by many people).
As for me... have I become a full time trader yet? No, but I'm trying very hard to become one. Am I doing what I'm saying? Of course!
And the last but not the least is...
May God bless you in your effort to become a full time forex trader!
