Am I stupid for attempting algotrading stocks first?

FTMO Trader Scouting


I am very far from a pro, but fully prepared for a multi-year-long journey.

Recently I've heard that the crypto world is the blue square, stocks are black diamond, and forex is a double-black diamond... Am I stupid for going into the stock game first? Am I making things more difficult for myself and lowering my chance of profit?

I understand that most people fail, etc etc etc.. all that aside.

What are your thoughts?
