Hello Everyone! I wanted to introduce myself and introduce my signals to everyone so if you have questions for me I'm here to answer them. I've been trading for several years and exclusively FX for about 3-4 years now. I trade with the trend on pullbacks when multiple confluences are present at significant support and resistance. I use solid stop losses and do not believe in a grid or martingale strategy. I will at times add to a position near my stop IF and only if the market gives me another signal to go short. I do trade various sizes based on the set up and market conditions. Generally 1-2% per trade or basket of trades (if I'm trading several of the same currency pair) is my tolerance. I use horizontal support and resistance first in determining trades and use trendlines, 20 period MA, bollinger bands and momentum indicators WHEN specific market conditions exist.   I also take into consideration divergences when placing trades. For example, if I see divergences on an uptrend it is highly unlikely I will go long. Also, I consider time frames from 15m to daily when determining trades. If everything does not line up exactly how I want it I will not take the trade in most cases. For this reason, a couple trades a day are what I usually take. Quality over quantity!!!  Finally, I use simple trader for trade copying and I broadcast from the demo but also show a live account with higher risk to demonstrate the kind of gains that are achievable if you choose to place higher risk on the account. I am open to broadcasting from a live account in the future if people have issues with demo. Look forward to helping anyone here that is wanting it! Cheers!

Hello, I wanted to give an example of a trade set up from this last week and why I took it so you guys have an understanding of the type of trading that I do and if this might be right for you.  I will gladly share my insights and tell you why I take trades so that you may trade for yourself in the event you dont want to take my signals.  Anyways, here is the EURGBP trade that I took this week.  I had several confluences telling me the market was going up and thats why I took the trade.  I took somewhere around 20 pips on this trade as I closed it out before I went to bed because there was A TON of red tagged pound news which I did not want to be in that night during the London session.  Obviously from the chart there were 100+ pips available on the trade, but again I like to sleep well so I can be refreshed with a clear mind for trading each day.  Looking at the chart which I have uploaded here, my entry was where the "thumbs up" is located.  There were several reasons for my entry here.  First of all, if you look at the dashed white line you will see there was alot of traditional support here, which told me there were buyers in this area and market would very likely bounce here.  Secondly, you will notice the red trendline.  This was the 3rd hit of the trendline which is the MAGIC number for me.  You need at least 3 hits to establish a trend and as you have more than 3 hits, the level becomes more and more likely to break down. That's why 3 is the magic number.  Also, you will notice a blue trendline and this is the downtrend which was broken.  AT THIS SAME LEVEL, markets were retesting this broken resistance from the trendline.  Another reason why I took the trade.  On top of this, like I said before I only take trades with the trend and you will notice higher highs and higher lows so this is in fact a valid up trend at the time.  Next, we have a test of the moving average, which is the green moving average line.  ALSO, you have a test of the white dotted line, which is the 20 period bollinger band.  Finally, when i went down to my 15 minute chart for the entry you would notice at this same level is the 50 period bollinger band which will also act as support.  ALL of these confluences told me that the market was getting ready to go UP.  This is a classic example of what i call a 90%+ trade.  The likelyhood of this being profitable is at least 90% because you have so many reasons why you will find buyers at this area.  Stops were below the lows and you will notice the 50 period bollinger band about 20 pips below the entry which also would act as a restrainer and on top of that you have the 200 period bollinger band which often acts as major market reversals.  For that reason, there was not just support at the level I entered but MASSIVE support just below that area as well.  If you have any questions let me know.  I would love to clarify any of this if you are confused and want to understand better.

looks decent so far. Short history though. Couple of questions.

1. do you have a longer history you can show us? As you know a blind person can get lucky with even random trades for just 2 months.

2. why is the performance so different from the live and demo account. The demo has half the expectancy of the live account.

Guys, to remove the confusion I am trading only the live account and broadcasting from LIVE only now.  There was a difference because I was having issues placing trades in so many accounts so I am just focusing on this one. Generally I only have 1 or 2 trades open for any given currency pair although at times there may be 3 or 4 if I get different sorts of confirmation...the whole idea is the risk at hand here not how many trades are being opened.  I will normally not go above 5% risk on any given trade set up unless the market is giving me GREAT reasons why I should be in the trade and sometimes I will add to a winner if it looks right.  If you are using 50:1 leverage you may want to go into the control panel and place your risk on just under the default of 1, especially if you dont like the drawdown that is on the account.  The default will give u the same return as whats on the live now.  Thanks. You can actually trade this signal with as little as $300 or so...but I recommend at least $500 unless you have 300:1 leverage or higher.

I have found only two month history and dd is high. Your strategies channel trading, macd divergence are very effective in forex trading . Win% is good. I think maintaining proper mm is must  to survive long time. Otherwise if you face mc for not maintaining  mm then both time and money will be wasted.

Thanks for your input.  If I may - an account that makes 20-30% a month with 25% drawdown is actually not high at all.  There are few signal provider that can keep their MAX drawdown as low as or lower than their average monthly return.  Yes history is short but as I said before, if that concerns you check back in the future.  I'll still be around; and with simple trader you can actually control the risk in the control panel.  If 25% is too high, you can cut risk and half ant therefore reward will be cut in half too  :)

Hi, do you consider to provide your signals via https://www.simpletrader.net/
