LONDON, England - Trading in the markets is going to be a long-term challenge and my education is still far from complete, despite all I've learned over the past month.

Adrian Finighan has found it tough going trying his hand at market trading.

Adrian Finighan has found it tough going trying his hand at market trading.

I'd like to thank all those who've helped me in my quest: Ryan O'Doherty, James Hughes and Ashraf Laidi at CMC Markets, David Jones and his team at IG Index, David Buik for his invaluable advice and, of course, Robbie Burns, the Naked Trader.

If I've inspired you to become a Rookie Trader too then I wish you good fortune. The only advice I can give you is that everything you need to be able to trade successfully is, with an Internet connection, out there and freely available to you wherever you are and whatever your income.

Remember: study hard and be patient. Don't expect to be making big profits within weeks. Please bear in mind that without proper research it's easier to lose money than make it. But take it slow and steady and who knows what you'll have achieved by this time next year.

Good luck. I promise to come back and update you on my progress every now and then over time.

Apart from the fact that you are a financial journalist and I am a technical professional in oil & gas, the common point is that I was also looking to learn trading and explore its intricacies. Your programme has been a great help and more than that a great inspiration. Added to that are some very valuable tips from the experts. Look forward to have updates on your progress and any further tips.
