πŸ‘¨πŸΎβ€πŸ”¬ Trade with your own Identity πŸ‘¨πŸΎβ€πŸ”¬

From the time I could daydream, I knew one day that I would be making money from the comfort of a computer. Over 10 years, you could say that I have had the privilege of doing so. On the other hand, it has probably not turned out how I truly envisioned πŸ€¦πŸΎβ€β™‚οΈ

At a young age, I took it upon myself to start learning a programming language. As a child, I dedicated a small amount of time to BASIC. Let’s be honest I thought the programming language was going to be “basic”, and while it may have been I am not sure my little brain could understand the concepts past a “variable” & “IF statement”. Sorry, there is a reason for my rambling, and it underpins the reason why I am who I am πŸ‘ŠπŸΎ

If we turn to the present day, more than 20 years later my advice to my younger self would be to never stop learning. It is interesting as an adult we can let time slip by, not capitalising on the opportunities that are presented to us. Yes!, some will succeed where others have failed, but we are not taught how to fail and why it is still an important factor in our development. failing is a life lesson to get back up and try again which will enable us to understand how to fail forward πŸ‚πŸΎ

Before I continue, there are some great blog posts over at Pineapple Chicken which truly touches upon the human mind and the way we approach our lives. Take the time to read some of her blog post as they can directly relate to trading psychology if you open your mind πŸ’†πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ

Within the past 3 months, I would say there have been multiple circumstances which have made me realise that my approach to the markets was not good enough. The majority of the time when I am tackling a topic, I like to stamp my own identity on the subject. With trading, it has not been the same. Like any newbie trader, we look around searching for theΒ perfectΒ trading system. Let me be clear, there is one but you will not have the time, money or connected people to get there (if that is what you are looking for). In time I will talk about the perfect trading system, but do your own research, and you will piece it all together πŸ––πŸΎ

At the end of 2018, I started to put together my own trading system. Dirty and rough around the edges I thought I had something, indicators telling me when, where, up and down. While at times this was not confusing for me, I started to realise I was adding lagging indicators after lagging indicators. Constantly having to tweak settings to make sure I found the right balance for each market. If you have read any of my earlier blog posts you will know I built my strategy around the no-nonsense forex way (shit load of indicators), while I can see how this method works and resonated with me, it did not have my identity stamp πŸ™‹πŸΎβ€β™‚οΈ

The start of this year saw many family issues arise, which gave me some time away from the markets. It was probably the best thing that could have happened to me because once I came back to the charts, everything looked like a mess. The no-nonsense forex approach has lost its touched, and I believed there could be a simpler approach to my trading strategy. This led me down the path of daydreaming again and coming back to where it all started for me πŸ’ͺ🏾

Simple dream but now it was time to take it seriously. Taking this dream seriously would mean I would need to treat my journey more like a business and that is what I have been planning to do for the last few months. Over time you will see my vision, you will also see my social presence decrease from Instagram, while I start to increase on Tradingview and my blog πŸ‘¨πŸΎβ€πŸ«

  • Video Analysis – Weekly analysis which will be recorded on the weekend highlighting the Major Forex pairs and Cryptocurrency
  • Midweek analysis (Wednesday) – Short and sweet analysis of the market, looking at the significant pairs in forex and cryptocurrency on trading view
  • Blog post (Midweek and Weekly writeups) – As I need to keep the write-ups going on the blog and use this platform for more things to come

I hope you can all follow me on this new journey as I open Pandora’s box on the retail financial market.

Peace and Love πŸ™πŸΎ
