It was back in 2009 when a Forex broker came to my school and organize a trading competition.
I took part immediately thinking:
“How hard can this be?”
Boy… I was wrong.
I blew up my account within 2 days and that’s the start of my trading career.
During my university days, I devoured every bit of trading knowledge I came across.
I’ve studied things like MACD, RSI, Stochastic, Price action, Candlesticks, Chart patterns, Harmonic patterns, and etc.
Still, I wasn’t a consistently profitable trader.
But I’m not about to give up just yet.
So right after graduation, I applied for proprietary trading jobs in the hopes of learning how the pros do it.
After countless failed interviews and rejections, I was eventually hired as a proprietary futures trader.
And it wasn’t long before I got my “AHA” moment.
