how i started trading forex


how an accountability group got me there

Hello, and welcome! If you're anything like me, you probably started off seeing my posts on social media trying to figure out, how in the world or what in the world is Sade doing? How is she making money from her cell phone? And can I make money doing this too?

The quick answer to those questions are: I'm trading money on the Foreign Exchange Market (Forex), I'm making money from my cell phone through Forex, and yes you can make money doing it too. 

Just like you, I started out seeing people make hundreds and thousands of dollars and I grew curious to see if I could do it too. My mentor, friend, and business coach, Emmelie (below in the orange shirt) invited me to the very call below.  She has over seven streams of income, this is just one. So I knew if she was securing the bag, it was legit. 

It was in this 42 min call that I decided to change my life for the better and signed up 24 hours later for the IMarketsLive Course and begin trading within two weeks. Watch below.

Also, because I've been asked so many questions, keep scrolling for the frequently asked questions I get.


Once you sign up, you will receive a packet from me or Emmelie within less than 24 hours that will walk you through how to setup and open up your trading accounts (can be funded by debit or credit card), a tool to help calculate your pips and daily trading goals based on how much income you want to generate.



How Long Does It Take To Learn To Trade Forex?

One of the most common questions I receive from interested traders is “How long does it take to become a profitable trader?” This is a very normal and obvious question to ask at the beginning stages of your trading career, from the view of a fellow novice trader it reflects the need for more knowledge and training.

The better question is, how much money are you willing to invest in yourself?

To me, this is the most important determinant of learning curve length. A lot of people refuse to seek out professional traders with any credibility and instead choose to spend their time learning from free resources. If you want to teach yourself how to trade, it's obviously going to take you longer to learn. If you invest the money and have someone teach you how to trade, then your learning curve will be shorter.  I personally am the type to spend the money to continually educate myself.  The more I carefully invest in my education, the shorter time it takes to make significant progress in my opinion. Do your research and find what resource is best for you. If it's IMarketsLive (which is the teaching program I used) coupled with FREE accountability group with me great, if it's youtube videos -- that's fine too.

how long does it take to become profitable?

As with most things in life, the learning curve for trading any instrument varies depending on the individual. If you become overly fixated on the destination (profitable trading) and forget about the journey, you will lose sight of what matters and of how you actually attain what you are aiming for.

The easiest comparison is the gym. How long would it take for you to lose 30 lbs or get that coveted six pack? You wouldn't walk into a gym expecting have a six pack in a day or a week would you? You know it will require hard work, dedication, eating the right things daily, for months and sometimes even years. The same goes for trading. What you put in, is what you get out. What's different is that you are able to "EARN, while you LEARN". So while it's not likely you will make a $1,000 in a day, its fairly simple to make $25-50, while learning how to get to those more profitable days. 

Can i join your forex accountability group?

Yes, but you have to be a trader in the IMarketsLive(IML) network to gain access to our accountability group. 

can i learn forex without investing in IMarketsLive?

Of course, however, finding the right information is no easy task. The biggest mistake you can make is to think you can figure out how to trade by casual observation, trial and error and reading some free online forums. This doesn’t only lead to confusion, it also takes many years to get a handle on what information carries any value and it ends up costing you more money in poor trades then just investing in the courses like I did.

The lesson I've learned is if you want quality, you have to pay. If you’re hesitant to pay, then be prepared to spend years and thousands on losing trades.

do I need to have a degree/be good at math to trade forex?

Trading is not about intelligence, it is more about being a good listener and behavior control. If you overestimate your abilities, and have an ego to narrow your view even further, you will not be happy with your results. The more flexible and open minded you are, the faster you will attain the skills and structure to operate in uncertain financial markets like forex.

can i pay you to trade for me/teach me how to trade?

Unfortunately, no. As much as I love to make money, consulting of Forex and teaching Forex is not why I started trading. I have and will always view trading as passive income. I already work a 9-6 and run a blog and small business. I do not have the time, bandwidth or willingness to trade on behalf of anyone or teach anyone, when there are literally hundreds of experts you can meet and consult with as a part of IML.

Below are the tools that I use. In no way am I inferring that these are the only tools.
