Is Trading Easy to Learn?

Published July 6th, 2021

Is trading easy to learn? You are ready and motivated to give it a try. Learning something new requires hard work. It requires discipline and hours of practice over the longer term. Think about it like you would if you decided you wanted to run 5km. It would take drive, passion, practice, time to build up to 5km.

Most successful traders admit that trading is a boring pursuit. Passion is key. When you are passionate about something, it excites you, it energises you.

The Chartist membership can be a great way to get the motivation and education you are seeking. A chance to join like-minded people on the same journey.

Nick Radge had incredible motivation and passion when learning to trade. He still does. He knew his new found trading knowledge was wonderful, yet simplifying this knowledge into a well-defined strategy was important.

Like Nick, when learning to trade you want to find a strategy that suits your personality type. This is the key to learning to trade well.
