One of the joys of experience is experience – you get to see all manner of things and from these these observations you can generalise a series of rules about life in general. A subset of these observations naturally relate to trading and what they have enabled me to do is to with a high degree of accuracy spot people who will and will not make. With any set of markers you have benchmarks that trigger alarms and for me it is relatively simple – if you email me asking what is the cheapest online broker or where can you get free charts then I am certain you will not make it in trading. In fact I am so cocky and arrogant that I will suggest that you wont make it at anything you try. My arrogance stems from a simple observation. If you send me an email with any of these questions or a variation of these questions it shows that you are lazy and couldn’t be bothered doing the work yourself and lets be honest typing into Google the phrase online broker comparison is not really work.
Lazy people go nowhere.
