Playing the game of forex trading to financial freedom
Hey! Forex Trading is so like a Role Playing Game!
I enjoy playing computer games when I have the time, especially Role Playing Games aka RPG.
For those of you who are not familiar with Role Playing Games, they usually look like this:
- A RPG game usually involves a fantasy, horror or crime/thriller plot.
- I become the protagonist in the story and my mission is to complete a quest such as solving a crime and defeating the Big Bad Boss.
- Along the way there may be obstacles to solve overcome. I need to equip myself to fulfil missions so I need to husband resources.
- The higher I progress, the tougher the missions that I need to complete and the more resources required.
I realise that Forex Trading has many similarities to a role playing game.
Similarities between forex trading and role playing games
At the start of a new game, my character resembles a forex trading rookie
|Resources||Next to nothing||Meager starting capital|

|Support||Some comrades will appear in the game to help you out||Like minded traders will support each other|
After some time
|Resources||Amassed extensive resourse||Built up larger capital|

|Protection||Stronger armour (Magic Chainmail)||Able to withstand more losses due to larger capital|

The key difference between playing an RPG and Forex Trading
There is a difference between playing a game and forex trading however.
Forex trading is for real. It is not a game anymore. When I stumble along the way, I felt frustrated and unhappy but I could not give up because I know at the end of this “game”, it isn’t just a sense of satisfaction that is my reward but a path to financial freedom.
