Why did you choose Amplify Trading?
My first exposure to Amplify Trading was back in the year 2009, having enrolled then for its trading training course, as an additional option of activity whilst gaining my Masters Degree in finance in London. It gave me a strong inclination to someday become a successful Trader, which was a dream I looked to make a reality eventually in the future.
I was inspired by the Stature of Both Piers and Will, and that rich experience gained and the excitement which comes with trading as a career option, developed a passion in me for trading. That earlier exposure to Amplify, gave me confidence that Amplify would be my best option too, to seriously establishing Trading as a career option.

What was the biggest challenge to moving on to trading live markets?
My most important challenge initially was more psychological, where I had to de-learn and re-learn how to handle risk, and the fear of losses and failure, by constantly reviewing my trades and improving, a feature unique to the trading environment verses traditional thinking and habits developed in other careers. When I went through each of the above stages, then I had to learn the art of trading successfully with confidence and without hesitation to execute trades as a trading professional would or should.
