Learning how to become a successful trader

I was asked today on how one can become a successful trader, what technical indicators to use, what method works best.

It so happened that one of my trading companions sent me something on the same subject. There are 3 of us in the room, we call ourselves 'The Bralerhood'. Anyway this is a comment that the blogger eminiplayer copied and posted in his blog, from another trader, Ziad. Succinct and very poignant words, basically to be successful, it is not a case of the magic setup, indicator or potion, but through a hard process of observation, doing, making mistakes, observation etc etc until one gets to know the markets and embrace the uncertainty and ambiguity that comes with participation in these 'herds' that are made up of bulls and bears. And the bralerhood agrees with Ziad whole heartedly.

Read Ziad's take on how to become a successful trader, as posted by eminiplayer.
