3 Misconceptions Holding Back Beginner Traders

When I started trading in 2013, I was overwhelmed by everything I thought I needed to learn. I soon realized that there were three common misconceptions that were holding me back. In this blog post, I’ll share these misconceptions and how you can counter each of them to become a successful professional trader.

1. Trading is too complicated for beginners

While trading has a learning curve, it is not as complicated as most people think. With the right education, which you can find online, you can master the basics of trading and start your journey toward becoming a professional trader.

2. Trading is too risky for risk-averse individuals

As a risk-averse person myself, I initially believed that trading was not suitable for me. However, I learned that every form of investment carries a degree of risk, even “safe” investments like money markets and bonds. With trading, you can learn risk management techniques to reduce the risk of losing your money in the market. Some of these techniques include using stop losses, diversifying your trading strategies, and trading different types of assets.

3. Trading requires a lot of capital to be successful

When I started trading, I only had $50 to invest. Like many new traders, I lost that money quickly. But the good news is that you don’t need a lot of capital to start trading. Many brokers offer virtual or demo accounts, allowing you to practice your trading skills without risking your own money. As you improve and gain a good track record, you can attract potential investors and trade on other people’s behalf.
