Lydia Finkley has a unique - and all too common - story. She was introduced to trading by her mother, an unusual start to a professional forex trading career. But from there, Lydia went through all the normal growing pains of a professional trader. She blew up two accounts, in short order, before scaling back drastically in her third. That's when she started to learn a lot about herself and the market. Since then, she's put a number of controls in place to ensure that she never experiences a loss like that again.
