2014 Thank You!

In Miscellaneous on December 31, 2014 at 12:05 pm

Here we go again, yet another year is coming to an end…

I always start to write these year-end notes with the intention of trying to say something new but I guess that it’s just like trading… it’s all about the basics. No fancy things, no bells, and no whistles; do more of what you do well and less of what you don’t do so well. Very simple really but not always easy to put into practice, as most of you know.

The more you have the luxury to stick around in this business, the more it will become apparent that it is primarily about being realistic with your expectations, putting yourself in a condition to succeed and staying focused on the right track. As usual; no crystal balls, no magical indicators, no holy grail. On one hand we strive to be humble students of price action and market psychology whilst on the other, we stress positive reinforcement and mechanical execution.

As always, remember that trading is an extremely hard way to make a living. Don’t let anyone tell you it can’t be done but equally, don’t let anyone give you the false impression that this is easy and that there are shortcuts. In my humble opinion, a real trader is formed through consistency/longevity and despite the fact that not everyone is going to be able to function in this type of business, if tackled with dedication, discipline and devotion, it can be one of the most rewarding ways of life, if not ‘the only way’, for people that are truly wired to be traders.

I really can’t stress enough how important it is to stay grounded, realistic and focused on the task at hand. Stay away of distracting/negative influences, construct your own positive ecosystem and remember to treat others the way you would like them to treat you.

For all of the new followers, don’t hesitate to explore all of the content on the blog. The interviews could be a very interesting place to start to help put the business of  trading into context and to give you an idea of what to look for in terms of realistic expectations. There is a lot of content there for those that are willing to take the time to explore…

I would like to thank all of:

  • the active followers that continue to take the time to comment on the blog and share the content that I provide. It is always rewarding to see people like and find it useful, so thank you once again, I really appreciate it.
  • my students; past, present and future for keeping me sharp, focused, accountable and unbiased. Motivating me to always strive to take things to the next level.
  • the guys at Darwinex for this interesting opportunity/platform which will no doubt keep us very busy in 2015.
  • the haters/copiers/scammers that remind us what not to do and what not to be; furthering our conviction that we are on the right path with every stab they take.
  • the ones that may have slipped through the cracks but that still deserves a massive thank you.

Health and Wealth to all for 2015!

Thank you once again,

50

Best Wishes…

Just a quick note to let everyone know that I will not be posting much until 2015 but will be back around on the 29th for the last days of the year.

Remember that, if you are interested, we will be live for the Darwinex / 50Scout Q&A Webinar this Sunday (LINK). As usual the session will be recorded and available on the blog but you have the added benefit of asking your own questions if you show up live.

I will no doubt do some kind of a year-end post but for now, thank you for all you support this year, enjoy the holidays, get rested/refreshed  and come back ready for action ;-)

Happy Holidays

 

Back on Monday…

Just a quick note to let everyone know that I’ll be out of the office until Monday.

Blog & Twitter Feed will be taking a rest ;-) Back for London open next week.

Wishing you all the best,

Back on August 18th…

In Miscellaneous on August 8, 2014 at 7:19 pm

The time has come to let the low liquidity market chop do what it has to do while we are away getting rested & refreshed; ready to come back strong.

I will neither be updating the blog, nor posting on twitter next week.  All screens and feeds off, not checking any charts; trying to set a good example ;-)

For all of our latest charts > LINK.

Back soon, stay safe and keep it tight!

No Weekly Wrap-Up & Outlook…

In Miscellaneous on April 11, 2014 at 10:30 am

Just a quick note to let you know that I am sorry but I will not be able to post the  Weekly Wrap-Up & Outlook this weekend; depending on workload and markets, I will try and do something on Monday.

As usual, I do my best to find time for these but occasionally, other commitments get in the way.

Have a great weekend, catch you all on Monday.

1,000,000 Pipping Visits…

Just a quick note to thank all of those who contributed to reaching this milestone. It’s not a ‘big deal’ but I am still humbled and surprised that we actually hit the mark seeing that the blog is not promoted, runs no ads and is therefore very low key in nature. ;-)

Once again, thank you very much for all of your visits and support!

thank-you

2013 Thank You!

This Week…

In Miscellaneous on December 23, 2013 at 3:14 pm

Just a quick note to let everyone know that I will not be posting much this week  and might just check-in around NY opens, effectively in ‘holiday mode’.

Still debating if it’s worth doing a Sunday video on December 29th but will be back in the office for a full day on the 30th.

Enjoy, get rested/refreshed  and come back ready for action ;-)

Happy-Holidays

Back on Monday…

Have a great weekend and catch you all on Monday, a little after London open, for a new week in the markets  ;-)

Back on August 19th…

The time has come to let the lower liquidity / lower odds market chop do what it has to do while we are away getting rested & refreshed and ready to come back strong.

I will neither be updating the blog, nor posting on twitter next week.  All screens and feeds off, not checking any charts; trying to set a good example ;-)

Back soon, stay safe and keep it tight!
