I used to think you had to be good at maths to be a good trader. While there is a science to trading it definitely is not rocket science. Algorithmic trading is all the rage right now with trading firms and banks who want to hire guys with PhDs in math or applied sciences. But the markets don’t move based on mathematical formulas they move based on the simple rules of supply and demand.


Do you need to be a brainiac to make money in the market. Of course not! What you need is discipline mostly, followed by sound money management and a good method of picking trades. I have written about some of my trades in my blog so be sure to check it out when you have a chance.
