The biggest challenge that I have to trading is that I don’t actually know how to trade.
I have read about trading and trend following. I know the technical indicators and terminology used in the markets and I understand what risk management is. Or at least I think I think I do.I am a programmer and data analyst by trade so i understand the theory behind proper risk management and that with a consistent strategy you will end up winning in the long run.
But even with all of that I have come to realize that I don’t actually know how to trade. A book only tells you so much and I need to start doing actually trades to progress from where I am. So long story short, I want to win and I want to do it the right way. Not just jump in head first and do something stupid.
