Trading: should you venture into it?

Trading is an active style of participating in the financial markets, rather than trying to profit from long-term investments such as houses and the like, traders look for short-term price moves to profit in both rising and falling markets.

As a trader, one of the most important things you can do to improve your chances of success is to approach trading as a business. A successful trading business requires a strategic plan that covers your actual business and your actual trading. It is as simple as that, but let it be known that successful trading involves more than reading a few articles or books. You should plan on devoting a substantial amount of time and effort before ever placing a trade in a live market. This can be difficult because most new traders are anxious to get in the market. While the research and time commitments may seem like a turn-off, it cannot be denied that they are a realistic and essential part of becoming a profitable, independent trader.

Now, comes the question: should you?

Our answer would be a resounding yes. Trading is an opportunity for you to learn many things, in addition to enjoying some profits along the way. Some of the things you will learn include:
  1. perseverance
  2. dedication
  3. how to organise your trading plans
  4. how to spot key changes in the market
  5. the importance of relying on oneself
  6. the concept of thorough research
  7. how to exercise self-control
  8. the importance of being level-headed
  9. humility
  10. and so much more...
