BPtrader has a very good thread going on trading in relation to how hard it is to learn and become profitable. This thread is not to refute what BPtrader has said, but to challenge it, as anything of value must be challenged to verify its effectiveness. With that, I say that trading can be very easy for those who accept it as a possible fact. Of course, accepting a possible fact is but one step in the right direction and what the trader decides to actually do next will make the difference, or determine the outcome. Will the fact become a reality for you, or like many of us have you decided to take the road that is traveled by many?
