Today, I decided to try something new, and invited some of my ex-students and program graduates to trade live with me. Since this was just the beginning, I did not want such a big group, and I wanted them to experience first-hand the taste of profits from full-time trading.
All set up, and ready to trade!
Real accounts and real trades
Taking a break 🙂
At 8.02pm, before setting off for dinner, we have already locked in our positions for EUR/USD & AUD/USD, and we are just waiting for the trade to play out and reach our TP. There is no need to keep watching the screen once our SL & TP are in place.
At 9:23pm, we had already finished dinner, and we took a few minutes to observe our profits grow and learn how to manage the trade. When I reached home, I realised that my TP had been hit, and I am going to call it a day and be happy with my profits for the day.
If one can be consistent like today and get 50-70 pips daily, trading 2-3 standard lots will allow you to make what a typical person earns each month in their 9-to-5 job. It is definitely not easy to get there, and the path is challenging, but if you take the effort to master the skills, the rewards are definitely worth your hard work!
