For how long have you been trading?
I’ve been trading over 10 years.
What instruments do you prefer to trade and why?
My favourite instruments are EURUSD and USDJPY. I like those pairs because those are liquid have low spread, and most importantly, my methods work on them.
What schedule (trading hours) do you have for your trading?
Mid New York session to the start of European session.
Did you receive personal training from other traders or did you mainly educate yourself on your own?
My father has been a part-time stock trader all his life and he introduced me to the trading scene. I’ve been researching my own methods ever since.
What do you consider the best type of education for a trader?
Dive in, trade, and find your own ways.
Do you create your own strategies or use the ones that already exist? Can you briefly describe your strategy?
I’ve created my own, but it derives from many well-known concepts. My strategies are mainly price-action based technical methods. I try to “feel” the market and I have very little reliance on indicators.
What is the most important quality a trader should have?
I think this is a complicated question. I suppose self-control is the fundamental piece of the puzzle. Whether you manage this through discipline, confidence, or building your own robot, everyone must find their own ways to battle the various emotions.
How do you deal with losses, does it have an emotional impact on you?
Losses still impact me emotionally. I try to sleep on it and carry-on the next day.
