Online Trading and investing is a long play. You can make a lot of money, but you must be persistent and adaptable.
You will face numerous challenges, a few you can control and others out of your hands.
You will certainly be tempted to give up, but if hold on, eventually you will see a huge return.
Don’t bail out because of one small hiccup, keep going.
Online Daytrading is a game of staying in power. What makes people persistent? WHY are you investing in stocks or ?
I discuss my story of how I got started and the challenges I faced at first.
I read about SOES (Small Order Entry System) bandits in an Inc. magazine article on an airplane heading for Jakarta, Indonesia for a vacation with my wife.
It explained how individual persons with small amount to trade, can access the markets live with Level II software on fast computers.
I was one of the first 30 students to pay $4000 for a 30 day class in Irvine, CA, through Block Trading.
Needless to say, we were the guinea pigs of online trading with only 3 out of 30 students surviving with money in their accounts.
I was one of the 3 students that survived, and helped develop and market Online Trading Academy, and retired as Sr VP of Sales/Marketing/Intl Business Development.
I was able to retired 3 years later in 2000, and went on to help in the tsunami area of Indonesia, the country I was born in.
Since then I have helped and trained thousands of students, some became successful, others struggling.
The biggest difference I saw was that those that really wanted it, and were passionate, spent hours learning, studying, tweaking, reading and a continuous hunger to get better at it, became wealthy traders.
Through your personal blood, sweat and tears, you will be successful in whatever you choose to do.
