Sorry but you`re right only at 50%. Trading nowadays is more accessible yes, but definitely not easier. It needs same hard work and clear mind as previous.Trading is becoming more easier each year. There are robots and algorithms that allow traders just invest and copy other actions. If you're interested in trading on your own, you also will be pleased with a lot of new features, that brokerage companies offer nowadays. First of all, there is a lot of new algorithms and convenient trading platforms. I read a lot of blogs and articles about trading in the past and I can say, that we live in wonderful time, when to become a trader I need only Internet connection and reliable broker. There is also a lot of learning stuff to learn trading and master your skills.
