It happened when I started seeking other ways to get income not being an employee.

Basically I do scalping during Asian session with EA support. Tuesday to Friday only and avoid trading during high impact geopolitical o macroeconomics events.
- Tell us about your trading routine.
Every day during the American session I got briefed about fundamentals, review, and check the VPS where the EA is located. Review the market by technical analysis of basic forex pairs and major stock indexes. During Asian sessions check the EA performance trade only one hour as max.
- Do you have any risk management techniques? If so, please, elaborate?
Every trade has its own stop loss and I have an EA that acts as “emergency” or “hard-stop loss” if this tool is activated it closes all trades and refrains to open any case in the event the drawdown is close to max drawdown permitted. In the case, the hard stop loss is activated all trading activities are stopped one week at least after identifying and understanding the reason for hard-stop loss activation.

I got broke once because of trading this was the hardest and most expensive trading lesson but at the end it payoff.

After 2 years of training and burning demo and real accounts and mastering the basic aspects theoretically (tec and fundamental analysis, psicotrading, risk management, etc) you have to master by practicing day and night during years of intensive practice.
