If you would be interested in getting a copy of the Trading education planner that I showed in the video, please send an email *ASAP* to


In this video, I go over the 10 most important things you need when learning to trade.

This is not just my opinion, it is based on statistics from working with thousands of traders all over the world and monitoring the differences in those that fail and those who succeed.

They are:

1. Commit
2. Get Real
3. Don’t Skip Basics
4. Understand Risk
5. Pick YOUR Time Frame
6. Learn a Strategy
7. Develop Your Edge
8. Test It
9. Verify It
10. Structure The Process

I know from experience, that if you work through these and have these things in place, you stand almost a 90% chance of succeeding.

The problem is, not many people do all ten.

Please give this video a thumbs up and share it with your friends.

Also, let me know what you thought in the comments and if there is any other subject or question you would like me to cover/answer, comment below.

Lastly, comment below your most important step in learning to trade!

Take Care.

GoonT520 says:

Amazing content from Tier One Trading yet again! Every aspiring trader NEEDS to watch this video. This is without a doubt the hardest thing i’m currently struggling with in my learning curve, and that is structure! I was literally only this morning on my drive to work taking a voice memo of how i need to structure my learning because i’m going around in circles and skipping vital information about trading. This was timely. Thank you J.Graystone, Akil Stokes and Naomi.

The Forex Collective says:

Great steps ! Every trader can learn from that.

Nick Gordon says:

Step 1: don’t trade because there’s a 80% chance you will lose (see disclaimer of all brokers). Step 2: make youtube vids, create a lot of followers and sell courses teaching how to trade even though you don’t trade at all!

Ross Ross says:

Trading is speculation to be avoided .  Inform yourselves about  the moral problem of trading

Tommy Plouffe says:

I am unemployed with free time 7/7 and money on the side to live for a couple of months. If I commit to it 5 days a week, how long do you think it will take me to reach consistency?

Maverick says:

Awesome video man, thanks!

The Forex Trader Evangelist says:

I use IC Markets to trade the Currencies and as well as several
Cryptos. They offer the award winning cTrader platform which makes trading so
much easier to understand. They have super low commissions and tight spreads.  I won’t use any other broker check them out

Carli Weise says:
