This business is a personal decision for sure. Trade what best suits you and let that grow as you change/progress or evolve.
My barber is always trying to give me stock tips....tips he gets from some guy. We know each other well. He knows I'm involved with the market but futures mean nothing to him. He just gets quiet if I talk about it. He keeps telling me I should of taken his tips on this or that stock. There always under $5....lol. No matter what I say regarding me not trading stocks he still tells me to buy his stock (never short, completely foreign to him).
I don't have the heart to tell him I have two dogs that need hair cuts. I mean, "you cut hair right?.... so why not my dogs hair?.......OOOOO you mean you only cut human hair.......WHY?????....lol you charge $10 a hair cut and I give you a $5 tip..... I pay $45 a hair cut per dog and also give a tip.".... Because his business is JUST cutting human hair ...just a choice he made.
It's the same thing as him always telling me about trading stocks. I have zero interest in messing around with the stock market. Been there done that, don't like it. Yes, it's still trading, but so is cutting a dogs hair ....cutting hair... but he wont do it if I bring over my dogs.
I think if your completely new to trading, trade micro futures and or micro lot FX. If you lose your shirt trading micro lots in FX,... YOU HAVE GOT A SERIOUS PROBLEM.......lol.... or no money.
Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will. Perfect: the enemy of Done. per·fec·tion·ist: ultimately one lacking self-confidence
Buy Low And Sell High (read left to right or right to left....lol)
