Recently, trading and the financial world have become more fashionable and popular. Trading online is considered an ideal way of life for some: not having a boss, having your own hours, working from anywhere in the world and also earning money all the while? it sounds like a dream. But beware! Beyond the shangri-la, trading involves a lot of work, not only day-to-day but also mental effort, and without proper preparation you can lose all your savings. But we will discuss this in another post, today we are going to focus on the benefits of living from trading.
1. You are your own boss and you are in control:
One of the advantages of trading is that you are your own boss and you have complete control of your day-to-day routine. You do not have to report your work to anyone, or follow orders from other people. You are responsible for all decisions, how and when you are going to operate, what your strategy is going to be, your next steps, etc.
2. Hours adapted to your life:
You decide how to organize your day-to-day life and how to plan your strategies, based on the markets in which you decide to work, adapting your work hours as suits. This can be especially convenient for family life. The opening and closing hours of the world’s markets vary, thus allowing you to operate at day or night.
3. Greater comfort:
If we have seen something during these months of confinement, it is that working from home allows us to be more comfortable, in terms of space (since we can have it to our liking) and in terms of our way of dressing. If you want to wear comfy sweatpants and work on the sofa all day then it’s fine!
4. Greater control of expenses:
Working from home allows you to save on transportation, local rent, food. And you can save hours of your life each day by avoiding a long commute.
5. Work from anywhere:
It allows you to work from anywhere in the world that has a good Internet connection. You could travel the world and still manage to make a living from trading. Enjoy the digital nomad lifestyle!
So, As you can see, there are tangible benefits from making a living from trading. it is a very feasible and very promising course. But remember it is important to follow a discipline, know the market and financial concepts, be mentally prepared and of course, gain practical experience online. With those screen hours under your belt you will adapt your type of trading to your personality.
