I know what it’s like to be stuck. I know what it’s like to take a big account and turn it into a small account when it’s supposed to be the other way around. And I know what it’s like to feel like everyone else has it figured out and you just can’t make this work.
My Name is Ben and I’ve been trading just under 5 years. I was like most traders who start out. I watched a few YouTube videos of guys making $100-$1,000 a day and didn’t really like what I was doing for a living, so I figured why not. I lost my initial stake 3 different times; once on penny stocks and twice on options. It was never a stake larger than what I could afford to lose, but it was enough that it hurt. Enough that it made me wonder why everyone keeps saying you can do this with a small account but all I seemed to find was failure.
It took me a long time to figure out how to succeed in this business. Probably a lot longer than most in this business seem to think it takes. Trying multiple trading systems and gurus along the way, always thinking I finally had it figured out until my knowledge was equal to theirs and I realized they weren’t the answer either.
My AHA moment came when I realized it had far less to do with who or how much I was trading with, and far more to do with a plan. Doing the same thing every time was the key to my success; and when I realized that most traders out there are suffering the same fate, I decided to do something about it. I still trade for a living, and I do not give out trading calls like so many on here seem to do. But I do want to help those who want to succeed find their own way; because everything works in trading and everything fails. Those that succeed simply find what works for them.
Here’s to Your Future Success
