I’m not a fan of any one particular profession.

My trading account is never in danger of being ruined by a bad trade. I find it frustrating that people ask me what is my best trading idea at the moment.

It’s because I understand that becoming successful takes more than a single trade.

It’s this type of question that motivates and encourages me to keep doing what I do. That is, helping investors gain the confidence to tackle the financial markets.
