After many years of guiding thousands of traders, I encounter some students who are perfectionists. They assume that they must learn everything first before experience the real market. Imagine someone reading the book "Swimming For Dummies". Don't get me wrong. It is good to read the book before you test the water. However, for you to have progress, you must put both your feet in the water to test the temperature. The same goes for trading, some of them are too obsessed with reading Technical Analysis Book from Chart Pattern, Japanese Candlestick, Elliot Wave, Harmonic Pattern, Ichimoku Cloud, Gann, and the list never ends. Because there are still thousands of books awaiting them.
The learning never ends, to be frank. Good progress means while you read the book, you must learn how to navigate your trading platform, get used to the software, read charts, place an order, grow your account, and experience both winning and losses.
