How can you possibly sell a product or service at a profit unless you first have an idea of what it will cost you to deliver it and how much you’ll be able to charge your customers?

For most businesses and self-employed individuals, the bottom line of profit and loss is the only line, especially when they are just starting.

Trading, however, is different. As a trader, you have no product or service.

The financial markets are immune to your powers of persuasion and the strength of your will or emotions. They are annoyingly indifferent to the mathematical beauty of your trading set-ups.

Approach the financial markets as a source of quick profits, as you might a market for goods and services, and you’re doomed to an expensive failure.

The truth is, almost anyone can learn to be a successful trader. The key factor which separates the minority who become profitable from the majority who don’t, is not talent nor ability, but mindset.

Although the drive to earn quick profits is perfectly natural, it almost always results in losses. What the aspiring trader needs most is a hunger to learn and the will to persevere in spite of temporary setbacks and losses.

The Limitations of Theoretical Knowledge

New traders, of course, need to learn as much as possible about stocks, market sectors, fundamental factors, charting techniques, patterns, etc.

Unfortunately, knowledge without practical experience is only of minimal value. It’s kind of like reading books on playing golf without ever setting foot on the course.

This is why ambitious traders should consciously build their experience, not only through live trading, but by paper trading potential new systems and indicators while meticulously analyzing and learning from every trade.

Treating every trade, whatever its outcome, as a gain for the bank of experience is a proven way of mitigating the negative emotional effects of losses to the financial account.

When you’re just starting as a trader, losses should be seen as relatively unimportant, assuming you are risking small amounts you can afford to lose.

Tailor Your Trading To Your Level of Understanding

While a slow and steady approach may be time-consuming, it’s the best way to ensure that you’ll stay in the game long enough to enjoy extended success trading the markets.

It was a keen awareness that he didn’t have enough time to build his knowledge and experience that compelled Florida-based accountant, Alex Rodriguez, to limit his trading despite his fascination with the markets.

“I realized that I needed a system, a setup and repeatable routine to my trading”, he explains, and deciding this year that he was finally able to dedicate the necessary time to his craft, he looked around for the right kind of mentorship and training.

As a member of Jeff Bishop’s Total Alpha program, Alex learned the highly-technical Squeeze Method of trading and in his words, has “been immersing myself in learning it and applying it ever since.”
