to make your own success story
For how long have you been trading?
I have been trading for over 3 years.
What instruments do you prefer to trade and why?
I like to trade GBP/USD. This pair is volatile and it’s trend usually lasts long, so the opportunity to make profit is bigger.
What schedule (trading hours) do you have for your trading?
I’m a full time trader and trading for living. So as long as the market is open and moving, I’m ready to take that opportunity to gain profit.
Did you receive personal training from other traders or did you mainly educate yourself on your own?
I have been learning on my own. I read articles about trading to get more information.
What do you consider the best type of education for a trader?
Emotional and fundamental education. It’s rare to see seminar/training that specially train people to control their emotions. Because each person has their own emotions according to their character and personality. That’s why emotional education can only be trained through practice. The more you practice, the more you can handle your emotion to face a unexpected situation. And I’m a fundamental trader, therefore the best education according to me is to keep updated with the latest market information. Fundamental information is like breakfast before you make a trade.
Do you create your own strategies or use the ones that already exist? Can you briefly describe your strategy?
I use my own strategy. My strategy is simple, just follow the trend, the trend is my friend, it makes profit for me.
What is the most important quality a trader should have?
Faith, consistency and self confidence towards your analysis and the method you use. There is no 100% perfect method, but if you learn a method in depth, you will become an expert on it.
How do you deal with losses, does it have an emotional impact on you?
I believe in the trend. If I get a floating loss, I think it’s only temporary and I’m sure the real trend will come. So, faith towards your method is the key.
Are you satisfied with our service and is there anything we can improve?
