Today we will talk about the most high profile business transaction that took place in our time frame; bitcoins Trader, Michael Carroll. Michael Carroll was recently featured in the New York Times Magazine. He is a hedge fund quant who trades virtual currency on behalf of his clients. In this interview with reporter reporters Joe Davidson and David Greene he shares some intriguing insights into his world. There has been a lot of media coverage of this story, but perhaps most interesting is how he came to make such an incredible investment in bitcoins.
Here is how it worked for Michael, “I started with one goal in mind, to get rich quick, as I had always considered myself. As I got more involved with this phenomenon, I realized that there were people making a lot of money using this very same method. That really got me focused and I wanted to learn as much as possible. This is essentially how I started my trading career.”
He went on to explain how he approaches his job, “A lot of what I do is trial and error. This is something you have to do to become good at this. I find it extremely therapeutic. I am constantly testing and finding new systems and techniques which will help me make more money.”
If you are not familiar with the world of trading virtual currency, this is where it can get very confusing. You have to know how to read Forex price quotes, you need to know the pulse of the market, when to buy and when to sell. And these are only the basics. When Michael started trading he made no mistakes, in fact, he made more mistakes in the first few months than he did in the entire year of trading.
One of the lessons he learned is that it is difficult to succeed in the Forex trading market if you are new to it. It is important that you are able to understand all aspects of trading before you start trading. He was able to do just that by taking a break from his day job for a few months and learning about trading. The results of his study gave him a much more solid grasp of the Forex trading process and he is now much more experienced than when he first started.
There is one major advantage of having someone like Michael who has years of successful experience under his belt is you can go and talk to him about any problems or concerns you may have. Having an expert in your corner can really give you a very bright outlook on the future. The internet is filled with many traders who are willing to share their experiences and give out advice to novice or even experienced traders. They will usually be more than willing to help you if you ask them a question.
In addition, trading the Forex market can be quite stressful especially at times. With the help of an expert such as Michael it is much easier to relax and have some fun in the process of making good money. Trading takes a lot of energy and dedication. The challenge can really help you become better at the business and become more successful.
Finally, you will always have someone to turn to when you need them. If you have a family or even a job that requires your attention, then trading is probably not going to be the best thing for you. However, trading the Forex market allows you to have peace of mind knowing that you have someone else that is focused solely on ensuring you are successful. This is a big advantage to have especially when you consider how busy the business world can be and how sometimes you need a shoulder to lean on in order to get through it.
