Growing up in a military family, Josh is widely travelled, having spent time in Germany, Gibraltar, Cyprus and Canada. Being on the move prompted Joshua to seek opportunities on the global market and eventually he was drawn to the worldwide accessibility of forex trading. He admits that his initial, uneducated attempts at trading did not go so well and that he had to learn some tough lessons along the way. Taking a more careful approach and engaging in much more research and planning, Josh realised that he could see better sustainable returns and decided to persevere despite the initial setbacks. Taking a much more pragmatic and disciplined approach has worked wonders and Josh now has many years of experience and a solid portfolio of successes under his belt. Unsurprisingly, his main area of interest when it comes to writing lies in beginner trading and helping others gain the right tools, approaches and mentality to avoid the painful pitfalls which often await the uninitiated. Josh is a keen tennis player and continues to travel the world when he can, following high-profile tennis tournaments. He is a personal friend of one of our other contributors, James Randall, who encouraged him to join the team.
