After scrolling his Instagram one evening 16-year-old Edward Ricketts saw an flashy ad of a FOREX trader in front of a new 'lambo' and thought to himself...I want that lifestyle.
After realising it was a scam he decided to put more research into the online trading world and decided, with the help of his Dad to setup the account, to invest his £160 savings into it.
He lost it on the first day and avoided his parents for the next few months.
He hustled his way to getting some more funds but after he "blew it" he decided to take his endeavour a lot more seriously and not like a get rich quick scheme.
The young trader started to plan out his trades and was determined not get emotional about his positions whether they won or lost. He started on a "paper" account for 3 weeks and turned £3,000 into £30,000.
He was now ready to go live again.
This time the youngster turned £150 into £61,000 in 8 months. He is now on his journey to becoming a millionaire.
