We have a guest contributor today from the Czech Republic. Michael is an expert in trading binary options and Forex. These are things that I know very little about (I just know enough to know that I don’t want to mess with them). So we have Michael today to teach us about the basics. Take a look and if you decide that you want to venture into speculative investing feel free to reach out to him.
Letting your savings sit in a regular bank account means to voluntarily give up a part of it due to rising inflation. People who are aware of this, search for an alternative way to effectively evaluate their finances. Saving accounts do not even cover inflation, let alone make you extra money. Here are 10 Signs You Should Invest In Trading!
1# You Would Welcome Extra Income
I started trading because I was in need of some extra money, and I still am. We live in a world where money can buy you almost anything. There is no denying that. Trading presents a great opportunity to make money, a lot of it. There are no boundaries of how much you can make when you truly master trading. Motivation is a very important thing, and with trading it is usually a vision of money. But that probably won‘t come easy, for free, or even soon.
2# You Want To Invest Your Time Smartly
Do you have some spare time which you want to invest well? Then trading is the perfect possibility. You would hardly find another activity with greater usage of your precious time than online trading. In the world of trading, knowledge is everything. And the more time you spend on educating yourself the bigger your advantage is. I started with only a few hours per week and so can you. But the more time you spend on learning, the greater chance of succeeding you have.
3# You Like The Excitement Of Making Money
Have you ever played poker, slots, or any other hazard game? Probably yes, and do you remember the feeling when you won big time? If so, you know how great of a feel that is. With trading, it is no different.
[Editors note: This is not an endorsement to enter into any gambling activities. Remember that there is also the flip side of this coin and there are high losses can can result from any of these activities. Know the risks and make sure that you’re ok with them as well before getting caught up in the potential wins.]
4# You Just Have A Little Money To Invest
Do you have just a little or no money to invest? With trading Binary options or Forex, this isn’t a problem. You can start on a demo account until you learn how things work. Once you have some spare money, you can start investing for real. You can also start trading with very small capital, even with $100 the world of trading opens its gates to you.
5# You Don’t Overestimate The Importance Of Planning
Are you a person who plans everything? If so, you have a great advantage in trading. I wasn’t and I learned it the hard way. Planning, making notes, keeping a trading journal all of these things are a necessity for me now. But when I started, I was just another person who read about all of these things but never actually did them.
6# You Know What Is Right For You
There are many financial instruments out there. And every one of them has certain advantages and disadvantages. To find the one that suits you best is a very important step. I trade either forex or binary options. Their principle isn’t hard to understand. The most important thing you have to do with them is to determine whether the price of an asset will go up or down.
7# You Have The Right Attitude
The right mindset is very important in trading. Some have it right from the beginning. Others don’t and learn it along the way. Determination, patience, discipline, and objectivity are all qualities are important for a trader to have. A traders decisions will depend on all of them. I have experienced times when I made hasty decisions just because I didn't make a trade for a while. When I look back, I am horrified by the number of trades that I made like that because most of them were unsuccessful.
8# You Are Not Easily Intimidated Or Bullied
Nerves of steel are the dream of some traders. If you have them, great, if not, you need to develop them. There might be times when the price will move in the opposite direction than what you thought, and you better be prepared for it. In a certain point of my trading, I tried to harshly react to those reversals. But usually, that didn’t help. If you trust in your system you should not pull the plug until it’s absolutely necessary or obvious that you will not win the trade.
9# You Trust No One And Test Everything
Unfortunately, there are a lot of scams out there that want your money. Just like in the real world, you need to be on the lookout 24/7. If you are a person who does not trust anything or anyone then even better. There are Forex or binary options scams at every corner that seek to lure people in by making up stories of how they made millions or thousands of dollars without any knowledge. The only thing you can trust is what you test yourself.
10# You Accept It Won’t Come Easy
Trading can be tricky and usually, the success won't come easy. Of course, unless you are a gifted trader right from the beginning, not my case though. A willingness of doing what it takes is one the most important signs of whether you are ready to invest in trading. So the questions is, are you?
