Commentary 27th March 2017:

Forex can seem easy, but the truth is something different
 
Consider that an amateur has never won the US Masters

Two amateurs are invited to take part in the US Masters golf tournament in Augusta every year. They are the winner and runner-up of the United States Amateur Championship, known as the U.S. Amateur for short.

Although there are many well known names among these invitees, those who went on to turn professional and carve out a niche in golfing history for themselves after they did so, such as Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods, none of them managed to win the Masters while they were still holding amateur status.

There is a good reason for this. Professional golf requires extreme reserves of mental strength and stamina, as well as a total dedication to practice and training.

It is the same with succesful Forex trading. For a newcomer, Forex can seem disarmingly simple. How hard can it be? After all, currency pairs can only go up or down, and you do not have to be correct all of the time. But people quickly find out that nothing could be further from the truth. For the unwary, the market is getting ready to chew up these newbies and then spit them out again, minus their equity.

But Forex can be very profitable. For those who have served their time putting in the training, and who have studied how best to give themselves an edge, that is. And that is what we have done here at EthicalHFT. Please feel free to browse our site and find out how we operate. Do not forget to read the pages about the risks that are involved.
