Trading Futures focusing mainly on BUND, STOXX, CURRENCIES, and ES. I started as a spot fx wannabe trader in 2007 who soon realized that millions are not going to come any time soon. I went through all the hiccups, hurdles, and diseases that every beginning trader has to go through. I survived the learning period but never stop learning. Loving the market for its ability to be a bitch as well as a giver.

My bread & butter are 6E’s, STOXX, and BUND. I trade almost daily (usually 7sessions/week) both EU and US session but my heart rhythm & profits beat more for the London morning session. I adhere to a common-sense view of risk – how much I can lose/gain (RR) and the probability of losing it. While this perspective seems to be too simplistic even hopelessly outdated, I believe it provides a vital clarity about the true risk in trading and investing.

Markets are inefficient because of human nature – innate, deep-rooted, permanent. People don’t consciously choose to trade with emotion – they simply can’t help it. My goal is to preserve my capital. I prefer the risk of lost opportunity to that of lost capital (although it can sometimes trigger deep FOMO). As Jean-Marie Eveillard said, “I would rather lose half of our shareholders, then lose half our shareholder’s money.”

My place of execution. My daily bread and butter. My tradestation:


since I have moved in to a new apartment (end of March 2011) my trading desk looks slightly different now:IMG_0191_a.jpg.scaled1000

After taking a break in 2012 I am back at full time trading from 3.2.2014.

After moving into new apartment (2016), I have simplified my trading setup a bit
Recently (2020) I have joined Axia Futures crew (the best futures trading firm in the world) and moved to their Wroclaw office to trade proper size on the state of the art technology, platform, brokerage and connectivity line.
