The art of going live into trading...

So you practiced a lot on sim and think you are ready to trade live like you did on sim ? think again...

Trading live and trading on sim are completely different stuff .. Trading sim is like playing boxing on a video game while trading live is live boxing when u get hit in live you will feel the pain ... So how to shift from sim to live ? well 1st thing you will need to do is start trading at the least amount of tick value and get the feel of live market get the feel of your emotions 1st .. note i say emotions because well in live markets thats the most important .. trading live is not mastering your system but mastering your emotions if you want to make money learn your emotions and you will make money .. So if you are thinking to go live 1st trade of small and get a feel for markets for 2 weeks see how your emotions react see if you can hit your daily target see how well you take losses once you do that and feel confident move ahead and trade higher leverage .. remember this ain't sim where you wont feel any pain here it hurts and better be safe...

Thanks

Best Regards
Jinhar

Maybe someone who has picked up the his method would like to start a new journal?

I have studied what he shows a lot doing currencies, but could never make huge profits or consistency. I do believe it is probably the simplest form of trading profitably though.
