I have always been somewhat interested in investing; and after graduating from college, I invested in some stocks and futures on the Polish stock exchange. This on its own was not very intense but it gave me a small taste of the life of a trader and I was hooked. After this I began seeking out companies and positions as a trader and stumbled upon OSTC.
I knew right away that this was my future. In the beginning I was an ambitious and eager trader but this excitement led to less-then-desirable results. Only through the lessons learned from many mistakes was I able to grow into a seasoned and wise trader. From my experience, in order to be successful as a trader, you must eliminate emotions and train yourself to be disciplined even in the face of opportunity. You must not let the prospect of immense profits cloud your judgement and take unnecessary risks.

When I was a teenager, I decided to start taking steps to fulfill my lifelong dream of becoming a trader by investing in the Forex market. I invested this way for 4 years straight with mixed results, but my hard work finally paid off when I came across OSTC and was given a chance to prove myself.
At first I wasn’t sure if I could handle the transition from trading petty cash through my laptop to a real-life trading floor; but after overcoming my initial shock, I was able to adapt. There is no doubt in my mind that the reason I was able to take such a huge step was the support of my fellow traders and the patience and guidance of the managers. Since then, I have grown as a trader and am even one of the best in the office. One of the most important things to keep in mind when looking to become a successful trader is being able to discipline yourself. The other is listening to those more experienced than yourself and to never stop learning.
