My beginnings were 23 years ago. At that time, working as a professional trader eliminated many obstacles that retail or amateur traders did not have. And I am referring, specifically, to the negotiation tools.
I am aware that I used some trading platforms that were not available to most traders, so that problem, which they did have, I did not have it.
But for us what did suppose us a problem of occupation of time and mismatches, was that, at that time, the daily liquidations were made at the end of the day, with the consequent mismatch, order and chaos to square the openings and closings of the operations.
Fortunately, time passed, computer development improved more, and the regulatory bodies updated the operation, and this problem was disappearing, until today, in which the openings and closures of operations are carried out in real time, this is , it is liquidated immediately.
The most important advice I can give to anyone who starts trading, regardless of their goals (earn extra money or want to become a professional) is to take the trade very seriously, as well as a profession more , Because that is what it is.
Trading is not a hobby like playing padel, painting miniatures or origami.
Therefore, I recommend you dedicate the time, study and training of necessary quality that you deserve. Otherwise, the market will keep your money every time you try.
