My aim with this blog is to be completely transparent about my trading journey so that others can see the REAL trading and investing experience of a beginner.
Why am I investing and trading? Because I want to take full control over my financial destiny without having to work to a ripe old age before I can explore this world, relying on a pension that may not even exist!

Had a realisation today about how much I’ve lost in exchange fees which is quite alarming! Every transaction costs a fee and it takes about three transactions to get the coin you need.
Make sure you limit your transactions and exchange in bulk rather than lots of small amounts.
