Tell us a random fact about yourself?
I wanted to see a sold-out NBA game when I was in the USA many years ago. Someone jokingly suggested that the only way to get tickets would be to ring the Billionaire team owner. I did just that. I rang the Billionaire owner…..and I got four tickets!
What is your Trading Experience?
I started trading FX in 2005. I have quit many times. This is my fourth attempt at making it since then.
What is Your Trading Style?
What is working for me is trading breakouts using sound fundamentals. However, I’m learning to apply the same fundamental analysis to make profits in changing market conditions. I want my style to be flexible, I think you need to be, to truly be an independent trader.
What had been the biggest turn around for your results?
I had to go through almost an entire year or ups and downs first. All of that time I kept meticulous data, and eventually I went through all my trade one by one. It allowed me to work out what parameters I needed to change in order to turn my losers into winners. The turnaround in my results since making those changes has been incredible. I really think I had to go through the ups and downs, and I had to spend all that time going through the data in order to be successful. There are no short cuts in the business.
WHY do you Trade?
I guess I trade because it’s part of a plan that includes eventually achieving my three main goals. I have always wanted to work for myself, to make a career out of my love for currencies and to make good returns for family, friends and clients. A big goal has always been to trade my Mum’s pension money that was left to her by Dad when he passed away. I don’t want her to have to worry about returns. I figure that if a trade is good enough for me to risk my Mum’s pension money, then future client’s money will be safe as well.
