Forex trading is an interesting endeavour. It does not matter if you are a Fundamental trader, a Technical trader, or a hybrid of the two, the one thing that really makes trading difficult is conquering your mind. They call it the trader’s mindset. To learn the technicals of trading is quite an easy process - although one that you should spend some time learning well. Learning things like candle shape, Elliott wave theory, ema’s, MACD divergence and the thousand or so other things you need to understand are all relatively easy. The one thing that is not easy is controlling your mind. Trading has a propensity to lull you into a false sense of security. You have one good week of a few plus one percent trades and all of a sudden your mind is showing you pictures of you driving a Lamborghini, buying a mansion and dropping wads of cash onto your laptop and putting photos of it all on Instagram like some of the other wankers around the trading game.

To begin this story, I need to tell you how we came up with the idea of FX Journal. For me, I started learning under the Infinite Prosperity Forex Trading system.

Forex Trading is different, you apply some analysis and put your money on the trade, this is where forex differs from gambling. People argue that you do the same on the roulette wheel, you do some research - i.e. you look at the numbers that have come up over the last few spins, you calculate the probability of your number or colour coming up this spin whether consciously or not, and then you act accordingly and put your money on the table. Then attendee spins the wheel and drops the ball. What most people think is that you can have a 50% chance of winning (red or black), except there is one issue with that logic - the number 0. What this number effectively does is swings the probability back in the houses favour. The house (casino) knows over a large enough sample size - i.e. spins, the house has the statistical probability of being in front - for every $100 that is put on a roulette wheel, the probability works out to about -$2.70. Take that to $1 million...
