  • Tell us a little bit about you.
    Live in the UK, known to many as Langers The Scruffy Trader, from youtube.


  • How long have you been trading?
    15 years, I am Full-Time Trader


  • Briefly describe your Trading Plan and how it contributes to your success.
    I am mainly a day trader using price action and momentum. To ensure I only take high chance trades, I only trade the London session when the markets are moving quickly with a set of 8 high ATR markets. My main way of working is a simple zone-to-zone plan based on a push of the market on a 1-hour chart between the hours of 9 am & 5 pm (avoid the London open as a nightmare).


  • Share with us a challenge you faced in your trading career and how you overcame it?
    In the beginning, I was arrogant and always thought I knew better than the market. After losing a fortune, I had to sit back and accept that you cannot win all the time.


  • How did you adjust risk management to your trading personality?
    Following a loss, after loss, I came to understand the waves of the market and use a variable stop.


  • Describe a key moment in your trading career.
    I used to have to buy products overseas, in their domestic currency, or with USD, so I was introduced to forward purchasing as part of my business.


  • How long it took for you to become a consistent trader, and what aspects did you change that helped you to become consistent?
    Roughly around 2 to 3 years to be consistent, slowing everything down help me more than anything.



  • What is your mental/psychological strength, and how did you develop it?
    In my 20’s I had a high-pressure job and also ran a large business with 17 staff. This helped as I was used to big numbers and pressure.


  • What was your strategy to successfully passing The5%ers’ First Level?
    High-grade trades only to protect the drawdown, coupled with small position sizes to allow the trade to breathe and not hurt too much if the trade goes against me.


  • How is trading for the5ers different from trading by yourself?
    My main markets to trade are the indices ie, FTSE & DAX, for the 5%ers trading only forex. However, the trading style and approach to the markets was the same apart from the position sizes, which I purposely reduced to help the drawdown and protect the account.


  • What would you recommend to someone who is just starting with us?
    Take your time and only look at the high-quality trades. If having to wait, then wait as you have plenty of time to complete it. Also, start with a small position size and build up slowly.


  • Share online resources that were/are significant in your trading development. Name and links are appreciated.
    Kind of self-taught with the help of an ex-bank manager who worked for me.


  • Would you like to share anything else with us?
    Being a journey that I have shared along with the members of a group I run from the youtube channel, the Scruffy Trader. The guys there all wanted to see in real-time the progress before taking the leap regards joining the program. Having completed the process, I would have no hesitation in recommending the program as a low barrier to a high-value fund that can bring life-changing wages. As I say at the end of all my videos, “Do what you love & the money will follow.”
