… i live in Athens, Greece and I have been dealing with online trading since 2011 until today. I am a fan of statistics, excel and when I do not deal with trading I like to read history, philosophy, and literature while I also love movies and TV series (my favorites are Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul!).
In all these years I have experienced disappointments, joys, and strong emotions as a trader as it is a volatile market that can send you to heaven or hell from one moment to the next!
The key feature that has remained the same all these years – and remains to this day – is my willingness to learn new things and never to stand still. My favorite strategies for making trading decisions are classic technical analysis (specific support and resistance levels) and seasonality patterns. Of course both have disadvantages and advantages and cannot be applied to markets in all circumstances. I always try to take into account the fundamental analysis and when I come to a conclusion with either strategy when the fundamentals agree, I feel more confident before opening a position.
Trading while it is so fascinating (especially if you are also interested in mind training beyond its for-profit side) can be dangerous to catastrophic if left to the greed and simplifications of quick profit. Also an important parameter for anyone who wants to get seriously involved is the psychology as most of all (maybe even more a good trading strategy) trading requires the ability of self-discipline, emotion management, patience and perseverance.
