What are some realistic goals new traders can set?
“As a new trader that gets involved in forex the first thing that they need to do is look at their current salary that they are earning and then trade according to a percentage of the salary meaning if their salary is a certain amount they can try and earn just 10 to 20% in the first month of trading thereafter they can get 30 to 40% until they making more or less half the amount of their salary and then look at starting and getting a bit more, most traders get involved in trading and wanna make $100 $300 $500 even $1000 a day! But they trade for not even 48 hours. It’s as simple as making $10-$20 a day and after a period of 30 days you will be surprised at the amount of money you have made. Start off small, that’s all and appreciate the process.”- Clint
How can these goals be achieved?
“You need to set DAILY/WEEKLY targets and once achieved GET OUT OF THE MARKET dont trade further even if you made your target before 11am, Close your trades and your laptop logout of MetaTrader 4 and go for a walk on the beach and enjoy your day!”- Clint
