Be Satisfied With What You Gain and Don't Think About What You Could Get


  • After how much time did you become a consistent trader?
    I needed 4 months to get consistent. In my case, the most important thing was my mindset. After I reduced my risk per trade and after accepted to make losses I became consistent.


  • Do you have a specific trading plan?
    My plan is based on price action and smart money. I am looking for manipulation in the market.


  • Please describe your trading routine?

  • Do you have any risk management techniques? If so, please, elaborate?

  • What was your biggest challenge in trading, and how did you overcome it?
