It took me about 6 or 7. I wasted over a years times because i did not know how horribly disadvantaged I was by living in the United States (which restricted me to FIFO and low leverage accounts). The second thing i was involved in another business venture that spent most of my free time with. Lastly, i worked a job that requires about 50-60 hour per week..........not to mention i have a family (wife and 4 kids). Soooooo, if these roadblocks did not exist, i could have probably made an expert level at 2 years. However i am happy for them as well, because my trade strategies have evolved from a lot of loss and pain in trying to deal with shortcuts (i bought many EA's and subscribed to many signals who accounts blew). I dont regret anything because in the end, i have learned a lot.

Started to look at price movement in august, made the first profit of 200-400$ a day on february that follows, lost it all a couple of days later, made a strategy by may and june, earned hell of a lot of money per day "500-700$" then kept on and on for days until i lost everything in july same year, focused on how to exit and started the year that follows and until now im profitable but im moving like a snale on the highway so i guess im happy with what im doing since i don't have the big losses anymore "6 months now clear of account wipe-outs but profit is too slow"


I would say 2 years and 6 months to reach that far


During exactly 2 years i didn't work at all was all researching forex and trying to build a strategy 



Word of advice don't start until you KILL your greed first

It took me 12 years, 99% of what you read online is fake with no results, real money results $$$ not 10.000 % a year and he makes only 1000 $, show me you make big money on real brokers.

Hello Radu Bot


I never got the chance to ask someone who has more than 5 years of experience in trading, did you make lots of money already and how much was your balance when you started to trade with the proper experience?

True, most of the online info is people selling courses, affiliate links, book, etc
