Funded Trader Program
My name is Nikolas and I am from Greece. I am a professional trader at Audacity Capital and I have been trading for seven years. At first, I worked as an amateur trader. Later on, I began my professional career working for firms and managing accounts.
What are your thoughts on the funded trader program?
I think it is one of the best deals you can find. Before I came here, I searched the market and found that what Audacity offers to pro traders is better than what is offered in the rest of the market. I decided to apply for the Trader program to get funded account.
Are you enjoying the program?
Being on the trading floor is a unique experience. You get to see the various strategies used by different traders. For instance, some people trade with fundamentals while others trade with technical analysis.
When did you decide to join the market?
I decided to join the capital markets back when I was doing my masters in Greece. I took a couple of classes on trading and I found it interesting so I decided to do it. The journey was not easy. I did have the guidance at first. In my early years, I blew up two accounts. Later on, I realized what it takes to be a consistent trader.
What is the best advice you have for newbies?
Newbies should not join trading to make money. Instead, they should first have the psychology to trade. The ability to control your emotions is the most important aspect. Besides that, you need to be able to adapt since markets are always changing. You must also realise that trading is not gambling, it is a calculated risk. In general, having the right psychology is the most important thing if you want to become a professional trader.
