  1. Traders, this video is talking you through an example calculation. However, if you want to be more precise with your own capital, you will need to spend some time collecting data from your own demo account trading. By doing that, you can figure out what your maximum stop loss is expected to be (as an estimate for the calculation) and put the number of opportunities you are likely to get into perspective, so you can understand how far your capital is going to take you.

  2. You better look like Hollywood actor not trader..I think you should try for marvel series..Nevertheless your views about trading is very nice..keep it up

  3. appreciate the content but there was a woman whos a student of charlie burton who turned 200 into 12k or so within a year. then she funded her account with 200k and made 130k profit for the year. but appreciate the videos cause they are helpful bro! this is definitely one my favourite trading channels.

    edit – also appreciate your honesty about blowing accounts. I think you needed to go through that process in order to change so I don't think it was a bad thing. You mentioned taking on too much risk, so I think that was the problem, not that the account was under funded. But because the way our minds work, the figures don't make sense. To trade x hours for a couple pounds etc.

  4. i love your videos man, compared to the other people you don't bullshit and you sound so real.
    I live in South Africa, so talking about 40k usd, that is R560 000, that is a hell of a lot of money to us. even the 12k usd.
    i worked at a church, so my salary was very little, it was R10000. that is 714usd. so taking all the calculations that you just spoke about, what would i have to start of with to make that R10000 a month. i will aim for higher after i get to this mark.

  5. Nothing wrong with starting a trading account with an amount like 500 pounds. You just have to trade 0.01 lot sizes.

  6. Einstein never said the "insanity" quote. It's falsely attributed to him after his death. The author of that quote is unknown but believed to have originated from the 12-step addiction rehabilitation crowd.

  7. i start with 100$ and now i made 20000$ after 1 year. trading is awesom.just start learning and start to making your own strategy in demo and when you get profitable in demo then start in real :))

  8. He's talking about making a living. If you just want to make an extra $20-$100 a day, a $500-1000 starting account is good enough.

  9. what about not trading forex at all?…what about trading real regulated markets?

  10. and yes, Bridget Jones wouldn get so invidiose about your sweeter in this video
