Hidden Talents Program
My name is Alexander De La Torre; I have been trading for two years now. I joined the Hidden talents program to improve my strategy.
Why do you want to become a trader?
At first, the money I could make attracted me. Now, I just want to expand my skills and gain more knowledge.
Why Audacity Capital?
I like it since its a nice environment full of people with who you can share skills on how the market works. It helps you to improve your skills. They also offer funding for traders.
Are you happy with your progress?
It has been a hard path to get to where I am. It is quite different from what I used to do when I was trading alone. I have made a lot of progress and I have a better understanding of the market. Each day I get better and I can control my actions better.
The Biggest Challenge?
The hardest part is keeping your emotions in check. You need to be aware that you can lose money at any time. It is all about learning how to manage your account professionally.
What is the size of your account?
I am managing $15,000 from Audacity. Besides that, I have a personal account. It is very important to trade in a live account since the emotions are less than with a demo account.
How has trading helped you improve your life?
It makes you notice the kind of person you are. If you are a rude or impulsive person, the market will humble you. It will help you avoid making bad decisions in life.
Advice for beginners
I can tell them to keep working hard, study the market and be patient. If you have an expert who can guide you, it will help you avoid common mistakes that newbies make.
