  1. Robert Australian Forex Trading Mentor on

    5th? Seems too often that people dont mention the word MENTOR? Why is it that everyone who goes into FX wants to go the road themselves and never seeks to get training from a real human being thats been there and done that? is it ego? is it a need to curl up in a cave and read a technical analysis book or is it a need to rush off a hand over $3,000 for a 2 day course for example that could be gained from a $25 book. Ongoing training and mentorship is critical to long term survival. You cant learn some of what the market dishes out in a book, you cant get a good feel for the market trading a demo.. you can get someone sitting “virtually” beside you and guiding through strategies from entry to exit. There are many so called FX coaches on the market .. some I have seen have used completely crazy trading methods including scalping for 5 pips with a 100 pip stop loss. That comment was also designed as a word of caution if you think your going to rush out and get a mentor.. caution is the word.
