I'm Hugh Kimura and I'm the founder of Trading Heroes. I am not a professional trader yet, but if you found this website, we probably have the same goal:
To create a full-time income through foreign exchange trading.
But that's not all…
My mission extends beyond trading.
I believe that trading is an opportunity that can be leveraged to create the positive change that you want to see in the world.
You see, when people are self-sufficient and make more money than they need, then they can focus on things that have meaning to them. They are free to pursue hobbies, travel and support causes that are important to them.
This is a lot harder to do if you are helping to build someone else's dream.
If you want to join me on this journey, then keep reading…
Trading Heroes was started to document my journey to becoming a profitable trader. I wanted to show you what is working and what I discover along the way.
I don't pretend to know all the answers, but I whatever I blog about here comes from real-life experiences, conversations with professional Forex traders and my own experiments in trading, both good and bad.
I publish my trading record online, so you can see every single trade that I take. If you want to learn more about me, you can read 18 things most people don't know about me, how I took down a trading scam and 5 lessons I learned working at a hedge fund.
Another thing that I believe in Autodidacticism. That is just a fancy word for self-education.
The reason I believe this is because I have taught myself several different skills which have allowed me to make a living. These skills include: programming, marketing, Information Technology and more.
None of these skills were learned in college, but by just going out and giving it a try. I would either start reading and trying things on my own, or get a entry level job that would allow me to get started and work my way out.
The only reason that I mention this is because many people feel that you need a fancy economics degree or MBA to learn to trade Forex. As I have learned by interviewing professional traders, it is possible to learn trading, even without a degree.
Of course, there is no guarantee that you will be successful, but if you are up for the challenge, you can start by getting the trader's rucksack inside Trading Heroes Academy. It is filled with tools, courses and other stuff that I have found useful so far.
P.S. – Why do I want to learn to trade? To cross off the items on my Heroic List, of course!
My Heroic List
My Heroic List is a list of things that I want to achieve in this lifetime.
What do you want to do before you want to achieve before you die?
Make a Difference Through Trading
One big reason that people get started in trading is to make significant contributions to charities, myself included. But you don't have to be a successful trader to make a contribution.
Every donation helps, no matter how small. So why not start contributing now?
A portion of revenue from all Trading Heroes products goes to these causes.
Kiva helps people in developing countries build their businesses. This provides tremendous leverage because the equivalent of a few hundred dollars can have significant impact on a small business. Compare that to building a business in your home country, where a similar business might need thousands of dollars to accomplish a similar goal.
As a surfer, I care deeply about the health of the oceans. What I like about Oceana is that they don't just do beach cleanups. They do the actual dirty work of lobbying politicians and creating laws to protect our oceans. They also have a great rating on Charity Navigator.
Let's make an impact!
