Hey Fellas, Alright, I started trading when I was 16. I'm now 20, and since then I've traded stocks, futures, options on futures and forex. I've never day-traded and I never plan to. I feel much more comfortable swing trading. Recently I've been starting to realize some new things - most of them psychological. The most important thing I've realized is that becoming constistently profitable is TRULY one of the, if not the, most difficult task I will ever accomplish in my life. I think this is true all around. I opened my new forex account with FXCM about a month and a half ago. Since then I've had my ups and downs. Right now my account is down about 50% - it was a pretty small account to start with. What I've noticed is that my calls are generally pretty good, however, I can't make money on them. Forex seems to have lots of seemingly random swings that generally aren't in my favor. I would defintely say it's the most challenging market I've traded. How do others feel about this? How did you become profitable? Thanks.
