Forex Trading - These Traders Made $100 Million Quickly How?

by : Monica Hendrix

In a famous experiment a group of traders had 14 days forex training and made $100 million in four years and went on to become some of the most famous traders of all time. If you want to trade forex then their story should be an essential part of your forex education.

The group were nicknamed "the turtles" and they were trained by legendary trader Richard Dennis. He set out to prove that anyone could learn currency trading, if they had the right education and mindset.

The group were of all ages, men and women, of various educational backgrounds and the only thing they had in common was - none of them had any trading experience.

The method they were taught was a long term trend following system which was based on breakout methodology and it was extremely simple; so simple in fact that anyone could learn it.

Now you may ask, if it's that simple to trade and learn a system, why do 95% of traders lose money?

Dennis knew the answer to this.

Rather than just teach them blindly to follow a system, he taught them how and why it worked, so they could have the confidence and discipline to follow it, through a string of losing trades.

The method had more losers than winners - but Dennis taught them to stay with the system, take the losses with strict money management and hold the big profitable trades.

So could you become as rich as "the turtles"?

Maybe not, life isn't like that but the opportunity is there for all.

There is nothing to stop you or anyone else, learning a similar method and enjoying currency trading success over the longer term.

All you need to do is get a simple system, understand it, have confidence in it and the vital element of discipline to apply it.

Discipline is the key, because if you don't have the discipline to follow your trading system, you don't have one!

Discipline is not easy to acquire but it's a learned skill. If you want to be disciplined trader you can be - it's as simple as that.

The turtles should be an inspiration to any trader and it shows what can be achieved and by anyone. I read about the story in 1983 and it inspired me to trade and I hope that it does the same for you.

Forex trading can offer a life changing income - sure it's a challenge but if you like a challenge, then you could be on the road to a life changing income.
