Welcome to my site! Hi, I’m Olivia and I am a Forex trader. I have worked hard to learn the ins and outs of trading for over 10 years now, and have been actively trading live accounts for about 6 years. Learning trading from scratch, from the ground up with not much help from anyone, it has been like forging a path through a dense jungle, the learning curve has been slow and challenging! Coming from a more artistic background and having zero understanding of the trading world, I was motivated initially, by wanting to work from home, working online, something I could do anywhere in the world.
As the years have gone by, there have been many positive changes in the world of Forex, better and more reliable brokers, more trading tools, software, better training, that is now available online. It is my goal to help prospective new traders to avoid some of the pitfalls and the lengthy learning curve involved. When you take the ‘hard’ road, which is to learn virtually everything there is to learn about trading from scratch. IE, the technical side of understanding indicators, everything from trend lines, to support and resistance to, Fibonacci and Elliot waves and so much more. To hundreds of hours studying charts, practicing on a demo account, keeping a journal of your trades, notating why the trade failed or succeeded. Was it because you followed your rules, or did it fail, or go to profit accidentally, by NOT following your rules? These are all important things to consider when you are trading.
Also, it can take a long time to figure out what your personal trading style is, and to formulate your own trading system, with rules that you follow.
Fortunately, there are now lots of tools and custom indicators available that can make this process much easier. Of course you still have to be patient, and follow good risk management, but having the right tools that are essentially ‘leading indicators’ so to speak, in other words, that let you know where to take a position in the market with a very high probability of success, cuts the amount of time you need to spend analyzing price action. What all traders want, is to quickly find a trade, set it and forget, and go about their day. So, you can either go through the learning process and eventually formulate your own trading strategy, or you can subscribe to trading signals and leave the trading decisions to the signal providers. The 3rd option is to join a Forex managed account. I will be going into all this within my site.
I want to review and write about excellent investment opportunities that I come across and make those recommendations to my readers. So, I am wishing everyone the best in their journey to becoming a trader, or in seeking quality investment vehicles you can put your trust in. I look forward to sharing my finds, and recommendations for the benefit of all who are seeking to increase their finances and looking to build a more secure nest egg.
