- How were you introduced to the Forex market?
I was searching for a way to make money at home that didn’t take 8 hours a day to pursue and I found a broker website with some information and I decided to try.
- Do you have a specific trading plan?
Yes, I look at the chart once a day 15 minutes before the Daily candle close and if my indicator shows me a buy or sell signal I enter a trade with stop loss and take profit adjusted to ATR and I let it run until TP or SL. For intraday trading, I use 2 EA developed by myself.
- Tell us about your trading routine.
I look at the chart once a day 15 minutes before the Daily candle close and if my indicator shows me a buy or sell signal I enter a trade.
- What was your biggest challenge in trading, and how did you overcome it?
My biggest challenge was finding the right indicator that truly works. I overcome it by spending hours and hours backtesting almost all indicators out there.
- What was the key moment of your trading career?
Understanding of risk management.
- In your opinion, what are the most important characteristics for maintaining a steady trading career?
Try to avoid psychology and stick to your trading plan.
- Do you apply any mental/psychological routines while trading? Please elaborate.
I try to stay away from charts and any website with financial information all day long until 15 minutes before the Daily candle close, so I won’t be tempted to close my position earlier.

I risk 0.5% for every trade and I copied all the trade I take in my main account.
