Forex: How to Quickly Lose a Lot: Real stories from TradeFloor. The ultimate guide to markets. Read this before you invest
But do not fool yourself. I have encountered a lot of young people who believe they can earn just by investing or trading. They do not see forex markets or stock exchanges as places where only hard work is rewarded. That is not surprising. You watch the movie “The Wolf of Wall Street” and see how fantastic, funny and easy that life is. Before that movie, there was the TV series “Capital City”, full of smart guys and women with now obsolete computers and phones, who were able to fend off stress and earn a lot of money. My dream was to be like them. And that is the dream for many others. Once you become a trader in a bank, you easily move to another dream. Not to be an employee, but to be an employer. To have your own trading outlet. To earn for yourself and not for a bank. And that is the crossroads that everyone has to encounter in order to choose which way to go. One is more exciting, one is safer. But that is not so important. All stories here are based on hard facts, on things I have seen with my own eyes.
