Leafing through the forums, and perhaps participating in them, it is possible to see first-hand what it means to be a trader, or the practical problems that afflict those who frequent the market. It is possible to explore the details of the trading activity, to breathe the atmosphere in a certain sense. Libertex speaks about it.
Obviously, we need to understand what kind of forums to address. The advice to consider is the following: attend forums populated by traders who have a level of knowledge far superior to yours but not so superior. If you bet too much on something else, in fact, you may have difficulty even understanding what you are reading.
Learn to read a financial article correctly
In fact, this kind of competence should already be beautiful that acquired well before starting to study to become a trader. Also because, if you intend to make a career in trading, it is assumed that you have if not the ball, at least a clear interest in the economy. However, if you are not able to 100% understand an economic-financial article, run for cover. The only way to recover is, of course, to study. Specifically, study some university economics manual.
On why it is good to be able to perfectly understand a financial article there can be no doubts: first, the terminology of the articles is the same, or at least similar, to that of the tutorials. Secondly, articles are essential for a good fundamental analysis. The articles contain reflections, data, perspectives, etc. all material that a good trader – of course, if the source is authoritative – cannot afford to lose.
Learn technical analysis
Technical analysis is a fundamental practice in trading. It is an essential resource for all traders, forex and none, experts and none, rich and not. And the reason is simple: it is the only way to deal with uncertainty, to unravel that veil of mystery that surrounds the future of the markets. Thanks to technical analysis it is possible, if not to predict the price, at least to understand the direction with a reasonable margin of error.
