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 While this perspective seems to be too simplistic even hopelessly outdated, I believe it provides a vital clarity about the true risk in trading and investing.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:
