Even the best players have mentors

Forex trading is a lot like playing chess. It is a heady mix of strategy, timing, risk and reward. The more you know and understand, the more likely you are to pick the right trading patterns.

Forex trading is a lot like playing chess. It is a heady mix of strategy, timing, risk and reward. The more you know and understand, the more likely you are to pick the right trading patterns. Traders also play chess. It’s a good way to keep the brain fit.

You can play chess with people all over the world, on websites that connect players of all abilities. One who thought he was competent, joined a global chess community a couple of years ago. But in his third game he was beaten in four moves. This is called a scholar’s mate. Who knew? Not him. He didn’t think such a thing was possible. He’d never heard of a scholar’s mate either. The player who inflicted this humiliation on our trader friend had a rating that put him in the “advanced” category. He was also a natural mentor.

The chess site had a chat facility in which you could communicate with your opponent. The conqueror explained the tactics and variations of the scholar’s mate, told the vanquished player what to look out for if another opponent was trying to set him up for it, gave him a couple of other excellent tips and left him to it, a shattered man.

But it wasn’t a one-off. Time and again much better players than him would win but then take the time to explain their tactics, show him new ways to look at the board, employ the pieces in attack and defence, and generally help drag him up to their level. Now he’s the one dishing out scholar’s mate thrashings to chess newbies, and loving it. He also loves passing on the knowledge that was so generously given to him.

And for the same reasons Global Prime connects traders. Discord mentor hangout should be your second home, irrespective of whether you’re an experienced trader or learning the ropes.
