You’ve grown in confidence significantly over the past month, was there a ‘Eureka!’ moment? How did it all come together for you?
I took the advice of Greg and Lee and focused on two strategies only. They were the Momentum Trigger and the Porsche as the primary strategies. I then also learned to spot OOS (Out Of Sync). These three work together as three parts of the same strategy and the main difference is only when to implement each within a trade set up… all three could appear over a given time period within the same trade if that makes sense. For me, this was my Eureka moment – the point as which I started to knit these three together. Added to this, I also became more vocal in the LTR and decided that ‘no question is a stupid question’ – I’ve always had the theory that you’re usually not the only person not getting something, so hopefully somebody else out there is also thinking ‘I’m glad she asked that’, or at the very least cementing something they knew to be true. What has been your biggest success so far?
We are currently in school summer holidays, so I’d like to really be able to focus before ‘going live’, so I’m currently in my demo account. That said, I treat my demo account like a real account and deliberately ran it down to £2,000 before I started trading with some confidence behind me with a realistic amount in the account. In the last 6 weeks, I’ve doubled my account to nearly £4,000 which has helped to build my confidence and the plan is to go live in September once the girls are back in school/day care for a few days a week. If you had to give any words of wisdom to anyone who is interested in learning to trade, what would it be?
Trading College really is ‘the real deal’. The course and knowledge and support on offer are second to none. Approach learning with patience and focus and maybe do what I did and complete the course before opening your broker account. Impatience will not make you money. TC delivers a concise but powerful course. The Pro-Trading System and support is amazing. I already have recommended TC to anyone who is interested in what I am doing and feel very lucky that it was recommended to me in the first place. What are your long-term trading goals? What are your ambitions for the future?
Financially, I’d like to be in a position to be bringing in £1,000 per week in the near future. From here I’d like to grow my position, but this is my first financial goal. Secondly, I’d like to continue to set a good example to my girls: they are interested in ‘what Mummy does’ and I want them to see a that women can work and still look after the family and be a good Mummy. It’s important for me that my girls have strong role models and TC has given me an opportunity to forge a career which delivers flexibility so that I’m here as they grow up, but am also fulfilled as a person in my own right. It’s a win:win. Lastly, I’d like to consider taking my technical analysis knowledge further and may consider a professional qualification in time. I can earn money trading from the Cotswolds or Australia… so if we do relocate to Australia I know I’ll have an income stream. I have loved learning from the coaches and my fellow students along this journey. The support we give each other is amazing. No judgement, just the sense that everyone wants success for everyone else. It’s a really positive community which Trading College has built, and Lee and the team should be really proud! Luisa’s determination to succeed and dedication to her learning has made her a stand out, exemplary student. We wish her all the best moving forwards and have no doubt that she will succeed! We look forward to hearing more about Luisa’s story as she progresses! If you are a complete beginner like Luisa was, we hope her story has given you the confidence to start learning too. Luisa started at Learn to Trade Live, a one day classroom course for beginners. If you’d like to find out when this course is next running click here.
