My name is Forest Brooks. I would like to welcome you to my site.
I have tried a lot of things on the internet to make an extra income. Until now
every one of them just cost me money. I had been looking at the Forex Market for
some time and just wasn't sure if I could do it. Everywhere that I read about
it, they stated that 90% of all new traders lost money. Well I can tell you from
experience that it is true. I started an account back in 2006 and did pretty
good for about 6 months. Then the market changed and I didn't have enough
knowledge to adapt to it. Lost most of my $1000.00 account. I stopped trading
for a while and just let the $200.00 that I had left just set in my account. I
just couldn't get the courage up to start again. I have to work hard for my
money and I couldn't just throw it to the wind.
About 2 months ago I was surfing the web and kept seeing thinks about the Forex
again. The stock market was going crazy. My 401k at work was going down by about
$5000.00 a day, gasoline had gone up to almost $4.00 a gallon, every time I went
to the grocery store it cost more to get the same things and they where laying
off people every day at my company that I had worked for 30 years.
I had hoped to retire at 55 and was beginning to think I
was going to have to work until I was 72 or longer. Depressed, you can believe
it. I knew I had to find something to make more money and find it quick. So I
started doing my research again on the Forex Market. I decided that was what I
wanted to do. I could work from home, have my weekend off, and make an income
that I had only dreamed about.
I started learning everything I could find on the internet about the Forex
market and how to trade. I started several demo accounts and practiced what I
was learning. I still felt like I was not doing as well as I should be. Then I
purchased several commercial EAs. None of them traded consistently. All I got
was my email address on 500 lists of every Expert Advisor out there being sold.
I even purchased several manual trading systems that where very expensive.
Well that was a big mistake. I spent a lot of money for training and they offered
nothing that I hadn't found for free on the internet. So I kept searching and
learning everything I could find for free only.
I decided that I would take everything that I had learned and develop my own
system. After I had a system that showed a good, consistent profit, I decided to
learn to program an Expert Advisor ( EA ).
