Sometimes it only takes a small input to push you in a different direction, to make you want to improve yourself or to make you pursue a new goal. It can be a conversation with somebody, a book, or a journey…

For me, it was a movie I watched when I was a boy… It was called “All American Boys” and watching it made me decide to become a cyclist.

So I started riding my bike around town. I was convinced that spending many hours pedaling was enough to make that dream come true…

But reality soon hit me. And it taught me something extremely important… something that applies to all fields in life, including trading.

Watch this video to find out the full story and what it taught me!

Hi guys, Andrea Unger here.

Have you ever watched a movie which changed your life?

Well, I did, I believe I did.

It was "Breaking Away", a movie about cycling.

I was on my holidays in San Gimignano, in Tuscany, and a friend and I went to watch this movie.

I came out from the cinema full of enthusiasm and I came out feeling I was a great cyclist, I wanted to be a great cyclist.

So, when I went back home, I asked my parents to buy a bike, a racing bike, and I started riding my bike in the village.

Actually I did not ride that much, I was riding all the time in the village, but nothing special. 

And after some time, I met a friend of mine also riding a nice bike, Giovanni, so I challenged him for a race around the village to prove him I was really good.

I really, strongly believed I was good because my mindset was so strong in believing I was a great cyclist after watching that movie, and after cycling all day long, so that I was convinced I could easily beat him.

So, this short race started and I was in the lead, but he was just quiet, behind me, and after a while he got in the lead and he got to catch the victory.

Very simply, I wasn't able to go as fast as he was.

So I lost, I lost dramatically! So, why am I telling you this?

Just to tell you that I'm not a great cyclist? No! This is important because it means that mindset is important but it's not all. 

It's not enough to be convinced to be a great cyclist, ok? To be, really be, a great cyclist. 

And the same applies to trading. 

After that experience, I started training much harder in cycling and we became good friends, Giovanni and I, and also to other guys.

And in the future years, we went for vacations riding our bikes on the Alps, we really did some enjoyable things, but I trained to do that. 

In some cases I was in the lead, in some cases I was not.

It was not a race, it was enjoying ourselves. But I became a decent cyclist, on the mountains at least: but I trained hard! I decided to train. 

Also in trading, you might believe you are a great trader just because you like to believe it, but if you don't train hard to become a great trader, you probably are going to fail. 

I mean, I'm not telling you this to let you fail, I'm just advising you: to become a good trader you need a good training to become so.

So, if you want to understand at what stage you are in your trading environment, in your trading skills and what could be the solution to become the great trader you wish to become, you can book a free call with one of our tutors and discuss for about 45 minutes about your situation in trading: getting some good advice, some tips, from our tutors who, I said, have a great experience in all our training and all other traders they had a chance to talk to.

This is an occasion for you, it's completely free, you can book this call and maybe this is a life-changing experience as that movie was for me, but it became only true when I definitely decided to train hard!

Andrea Unger here and I help retail traders to improve their trading, scientifically. I went from being a cog in the machine in a multinational company to the only 4-Time World Trading Champion in a little more than 10 years.

I've been a professional trader since 2001 and in 2008 I became World Champion using just 4 automated trading systems. 

In 2015 I founded Unger Academy, where I teach my method of developing effecting trading strategies: a scientific, replicable and universal method, based on numbers and statistics, not hunches, which led me and my students to become Champions again and again.

Now I'm here to help you learn how to develop your own strategies, autonomously. This channel will help you improve your trading, know the markets better, and apply the scientific method to financial markets.

Becoming a trader is harder than you think, but if you have passion, will, and sufficient capital, you'll learn how to code and develop effective strategies, manage risk, and diversify a portfolio of trading systems to greatly improve your chances of becoming successful.
