Back in 2014/15 where digital currency trading started to gain popularity among the youth in Tanzania, most people thought this is it. The industry lured people with unrealistic views and expectations and somehow lots of people got scammed by service providers others scammed themselves because of lacking the right knowledge. The lesson here is NEVER PUT IN YOUR MONEY ON INVESTMENTS YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND. There is no way you can get rich overnight.

The trading business is just like any other business, just because you can sit down on a computer and press BUY or SELL and make money then it should be your one-way ticket to financial freedom and success. Check out my other lesson on What Really Happens When you press BUY or Sell Button in (MT4/5) This is a skill that takes years of practice and through that, a trader develops an experience which is needed for success in this business. I have been trading for the past 4.7 years now and my trading has improved tremendously compared to my early times where I blew numerous accounts just to chase financial freedom which was not there.
I came to realize that I had a wrong approach and in order to get the success you have to be ready to eat dust and grind your way up. Most traders who approach me via social media platforms ask me questions that clearly shows they want success the next morning. “Bro how can I double my $100 account, Bro how can I get $1000 from $50 etc” I don’t get surprised because I know they are misinformed about the industry and this can be costly. It can drag your finances all the way down to the ground.

If many traders would save their trial money in the markets which blow each and every day and wait at least 2 years, no one would have capital issues. But the problem is most people deposit tiny amounts which seems to be normal but when you sum up, it’s an incredible amount. To me, I lost over $1200 and with other minor accounts, the value went up to $2100. Imagine if I would be saving all these, Capital would not be a problem for me. So instead of depositing a small amount which is 98% likely to blow I guarantee that, Just be patient and continue paper-trading for a year or two then come back with sufficient capital. Let me tell you, Just to sustain your lifestyle trading would require you a minimum of $2500 using risk management. Subscribe to my podcast this Friday episode 14 HOW TO MAKE YOUR FIRST $1000 CAPITAL
