Hi I'm Marty. After recently reading an article in Wealth Creator magazine about a forex competition Etoro.com put on, I instantly became hooked on the idea of becoming a successful forex trader. I have some experience in options, but the fast paced action of day trading the forex is really floating my boat right now. Consequently I have embarked on a mission to educate myself tirelessly until such times that I can consistently profit as a full time forex trader.
I have signed up with etoro.com and have both a practice and real account. I have done their 10 part e-course that they offer for free to real account owners which gives a basic rundown on fundamental analysis, technical analysis, Fibonacci and pullbacks, popular indicators and trend lines.
I am now reading two books "Tradiing for a living" by Alexander Elder and also "Candlestick Charting for Dummies - Russell Rhoads"
The purpose of this thread is to touch base with some already successful Forex day traders and to get their opinions on the best path to take to a solid education in this complex field.
Thanks for taking the time to read through. Looking forward to hearing from you.
