We at Tekton Algo Trading get asked many questions by our clients but these particular type of questions gets asked of us a lot. We encounter it in trade shows, seminars, webinars and generally just from chatting with people who have an interest in the markets. The questions go something like this…..
“Is it possible for me have a Full time Job and still trade Forex?”
“How many hours should I watch the markets everyday?”
“What alternatives are there to watching the markets?”
Which, fundamentally boils down to the same thing which is;
How do we get into Trading?
without having to spend too much time out of our daily routine, whether it be working 9-5 or free time
How do we make it worthwhile?
without having to stare at screens all the time and without all the stress
Listen, you definitely don’t need to be glued to your screen in order to become a profitable trader.
In fact, we advise against it.
Studies have found that staring at your screen excessively is not good for you and elevates stress levels especially if your not taking breaks or distracted doing other things.
But, you should be able to put in a few hours a week, so that you can put your trading strategies and your ‘trading logic’ (your decision making process) into practice.
When traders are entering or closing trades, they go through a thought process beforehand which results in entering a trade or even closing an existing one…unless they are gamblers and picking trades at random (very much frowned upon within our team).
The fastest and easiest way to do that is to put your trading logic into Tekton and test it out. It’s the fastest and simplest algotrading tool on the market and allows you to put your decision making process into action and on top of that you don’t even need to know how to program an algorithm. Tekton does it for you.
You Think it, Build it, Test it, Trade it – in that order, it’s that simple
