Very well said Mike. I thought I was smarter than that. I had always managed to figure things out quicker than everyone else. And since I was fortunate enough to have a lot of cash saved up, I didn't follow this advice. Two years later I wish I did.

If anyone asks me about getting into trading, I tell them pretty much what you said. You must trade only simulator until you're profitable for 6 months. Expect that to take 2 years.


Same here!! I am a quick study and thought how hard can trading be, lol. After 2 1/2 years of "learning how to trade" I figured out that 90% of it lies between your ears, at least for me anyway.

Everyone always talks about the method but you don't really hear much about the psychological side of trading.

Grk
