Trading

Becoming a trader is a process. Although some people have a natural ability to be successful in trading, most others do not have this. I think everyone can learn to trade the markets. I have spent many years studying the markets, reading books on trading, doing back tests and of course trading. Finally, I am at the level that I make more money then I loose. So I feel confident I can share with you what I know on the subject. I will not give you a magic formula that will make you rich, but I intend to teach you a set of skills that will allow you to trade in a way, that you will not loose your shirt doing it and will give you a reasonable chance of actually making money.

Read on if you want to learn to trade the market the way I do.

Below are a series of articles that are aimed at helping you get started trading. The list is in the order that I intend them to be read, but feel free to skip around.
If you follow my blog via Email you will receive notifications of new articles I post.

In the articles I reference different resources you can use. I have conveniently list out all the resources I reference and more on the resources page.

Google drive is one of the many handy tools Google offers. It is a file synchronization tool that allows you to backup, store and share and access files in the cloud. I use it to collaborate on files with others or to sync movies that I can then easily publish on Youtube.



Unfortunately there is no native Google drive software for Linux Desktops. Luckily there is a way to have a proper sync setup on Ubuntu 16.04 and higher that uses the Google drive API and some Gui tools. Let me show you how I have this installed on my Ubuntu Desktop.

First I install the Grive2 commandline tool:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install grive

No need to set it up right now. Instead let's first install grive-tools. This is a package that is only available up to Ununtu Vivid, but I have found that is works just the same on Ubuntu 16.04
Run the following from a terminal:

sudo su -c "nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/thefanclub*.list"
