  • Tell us a little bit about you.
    I am a Ship Captain commanding oil tanker vessels and been sailing for over 15 years now. Happily married and blessed with 3 wonderful kids.


  • How long have you been trading?
    8 years, I am Scalper.


  • Briefly describe your Trading Plan and how it contributes to your success.
    Scalping is my trading style and risking 1 to 1.5% per trade. Patiently waiting for the best set-up before taking trades.


  • Share with us a challenge you faced in your trading career and how you overcame it?
    I think the biggest challenge I faced in my trading career is being stuck for several years between swing trading and scalping strategy. When I declared that I am a scalper and focus only on scalping strategy, I became a consistently profitable trader.


  • How did you adjust risk management to your trading personality?
    By strictly following maximum SL per trade and always aware of the maximum drawdown.


  • Describe a key moment in your trading career.
    The key moment of my trading career is when I finally decided to focus on forex trading after failing in business. Since then, I did my research, read books, attended seminars/webinars, watch YT video clips, and most importantly, I did not stop trading even I am losing.


  • How long it took for you to become a consistent trader, and what aspects did you change that helped you to become consistent?
    It took me several years in order to become a consistently profitable trader. Risk management is the key aspect I changed in order to become a consistently profitable trader.



  • What is your mental/psychological strength, and how did you develop it?
    I am a resilient person. If I set a goal I will do everything to achieve it.


  • What was your strategy to successfully passing The5%ers’ First Level?
    By waiting for high probability trades at the zones and apply scalping strategy.


  • How is trading for the5ers different from trading by yourself?
    Honestly speaking, I developed self discipline when I am trading with 5%ers. I have to follow trading rules in order to get to the next level. When I am trading my own account, I risk too much.


  • What would you recommend to someone who is just starting with us?
    Just be patient, take it slowly and soon we are going to welcome you on board.



  • Would you like to share anything else with us?
    I am grateful to 5%ers for giving us the opportunity to manage high trading capital and in the process, I became a professional trader.
