For how long have you been trading?
I have been trading Forex for one and half years.
What instruments do you prefer to trade and why?
I only trade EUR/USD, because it has good liquidity and good directional moves.
What schedule (trading hours) do you have for your trading?
I don’t have a special schedule for trading. I just do it when I feel the market is right.
Did you receive personal training from other traders or did you mainly educate yourself on your own?
I have not received any personal training. I am fully self-taught, which has never been an issue for me.
What do you consider the best type of education for a trader?
I think the best type of education is practice.
Do you create your own strategies or use the ones that already exist? Can you briefly describe your strategy?
I use the candlestick formations, moving average and various indicators. My strategy is to judge the direction where the market is heading. In addition, I use Funds Management EA to open trades.
What is the most important quality a trader should have?
I think the most important quality as a trader is patience and persistence, that everyone in this market is striving towards.
How do you deal with losses, does it have an emotional impact on you?
I always set stop-loss. But when I do get a loss then I mostly take some time off from trading and analyse the situation after.
Are you satisfied with our service and is there anything we can improve?
