That’s a very interesting question, my story might be a little different because for me it was a change of mentality and my reality overall. I think it wasn’t one single event in my life but it was a set of events that created a need that previously I didn’t have. I might say it was the book “Rich Dad Poor Dad” - Robert T. Kiyosaki, or that it was a course that I did on Financial Analysis before I entered University or even something else.
I do have different motivations from the majority of the people, I don’t really focus too much on investing for the future and saving, my approach is more related to being enthusiastic about financial markets. I do like to invest in products that I use and need in my daily life.
Investing takes part in the creation of economic value for a country’s GDP, it’s a requirement for companies to succeed and being part of that process and helping entrepreneurs to create value and turn into reality their visions is something that I always found fascinated since I was a kid.
I was always very successful in the markets since i started at 18 years, either trading Forex using Scalp trading or trading futures of commodities, I never really thought too much on the amount of return I was getting but the pleasure itself.
It’s just so fascinating how the financial markets work.
