How long does it take to become a successful trader?

Recommended Posts

Assuming you'll be one of the profitable ones, it'll likely take six months to a year–trading/practicing every day–until you are consistent enough to pull a regular income from the market.

When you start out day trading or swing trading, or if you want to get into it, you may wonder how long it takes to become a successful trader. Establishing realistic expectations is important. If you think you’ll get rich in a few weeks you’re setting yourself up for disappointment. Yet, it shouldn’t take years of training before you see some cash flow either.

For many traders, just the theoretical knowledge about Forex trading may take about 3–6 months, depending on how quickly you understand things. But you also need to learn many things by experience which may take about one year.

It totally depends on the adaptability of a trader to learn from his mistake and posses good analytical skills to take right decision. Time can just fly away but it is more important how often you don't repeat mistake and generate new ideas and implement it.

You can be as 'disciplined' and' consistent' as you like

...doesn't mean a thing.

 

Without a reliable method of extracting money from the market you are completeley wasting your time.

 

And by posting this amateurish vanilla crap on a trading forum you are just wasting everybody else's time as well

Very few succeed because most humans are utterly and completely afraid to think for themselves. It's like a cancer spreading over the globe right now.

 

Sorry to piss all over your strawberries but the failure statistics completely back me up and vindicate all the above comments I just made.

I will rephrase your reply so it makes some kind of coherent logical sense (which is backed up by reality... just to remind you what reality is...80-90% lose)

 

The question was:How long does it take to become a successful trader?

 

As soon as you find a reliable way of extracting money from the market without allowing your natural human tendancy to get in the way and fuck things up... basically however long that takes you.

 

In most cases never.

 

Life sucks. Just deal with it.:)

Looks like my answer s still the best advice here.

forum here is still full of beta male clowns

I f you want to know how to do something, ask somone who is successfully doing it.

All the other replies here are from clowns

Only an idiot asks clowns for advice

only clowns give advice that they are not qualified to give

those who take clown advice get clown results

I shouldn't have to explain this to adults

but obviously nothing much changes here at traders lobotomy.

Learning is the only way you can be successful in this business. There is no other way or system which can make you rich within a few days.

This is an absolute truth. You will not become a millionaire in a week. That doesn't happen in forex if you are a small fish like most of people here. Be patient and study as much as possible.

there is not time line to success, some would take months, others years, at most its a constant continues process of struggle, I have been trading a hotforex account for 8 years now, and i dont think im close to what people call successful, but im happy with what little i make.

Successful trader is a myth. Everything depends on time and circumstance, also the behavior and approach used by the trader. Right time trade and right judgments can make all difference in winning and losing. 

Wise words. Completely agreed.

    • Landora This thread illustrates a couple of things that humblepieasant hopefully/probably learned 1 day/short term trading is for the few, not the many.  Finding systems that optimize win rate with risks is formidable.  Finding such systems that are also self compatible is exceedingly rare. 2 posting is expensive.  ie It really doesn’t pay short term or long term to give if you don’t got... 3 the need for the kind of “accountability”hp mentioned above is - in a word - transitional.  ie Accountability needs to be turned and referenced inward instead of spread outward... 4 hp would have been much better off trading “a small "live" account through the end of January, then a small "practice account" account beginning February, ... then back live. ... 1 Don’t just look for an edge.  Look for an edge that is also true to your nature.  If an edge is not true to your nature, you will still never be able to make it work consistently. 2 Post what you are learning and see. 3 Post what you are trading and see. 4 See.  ... maybe decades later...
