Below, he shares his story with other forex traders explaining how he succeeded in his trading to help other traders follow his steps.
Can you tell us a little bit about your trading experience before joining City Traders Imperium?
I began learning the art of trading at the beginning of 2015. Although I failed at every attempt during the first 2.5 years, I never stopped learning and developing myself. I spent hours researching, backtesting, reading books, watching videos, forward testing, self-developing, meditating, eating right, staying fit, daily journaling, eliminating, organizing and sacrificing on a daily basis.
There wasn’t a day when I didn’t affirm to myself the FACT that I would BECOME a successful and disciplined trader. I did all this whilst working full/part-time in several jobs.
1.5 years before joining CTI’s Funded Trader Program, I began working closely with a group of talented traders. We put our minds and resources together to create POWERFUL strategies and protocols.
Can you Explain about your experience with our funded account?
It was a brilliant experience and difficult at the same time. I had to focus so much on ensuring every trade was High Probability and that it was being managed well.
The biggest difference I noticed was that the experience enhanced and evolved my trading psychology and improved my EDGE.
Can you explain the strategy that you used in trading our funded account?
The strategies I use are based on a mixture of technical patterns like wedges, advanced patterns, reversal setups, retail stop zones, fundamental catalyst, momentum, counter-trend moves, price action and correlation.
Are you happy with our service and the account? If so, Why?
Every time I called Martin he would give me ample time and also offer me some very valuable insights/advice on how to succeed. CTI responded to me on the same day most times. I was impressed with their service throughout. I even got to speak with Daniel when I passed the evaluation, which was a significant moment in my trading career.
Can you advise others on how to trade the funded accounts?
I had to adjust my entry and exit criteria to suit the CTI Risk Management rules. In fact, it improved and complimented my strategies. I wanted to hit the target as quickly as possible but also keep the Drawdown low. So I ensured I scaled into good winners and reduced my risk during losing streaks.
The initial position I would risk 0.25% and I would keep adding 0.25% risk during the initial momentum in my favour. I would trade setups that give me a minimum of 1:5RR. Keep the risk low on the initial position and add if it’s going in your favour.
I would scale-out and bank profits when the price is at previous structure but depending on the momentum I would bank only 25-80% of the position.
The main strategy that contributed the most to my success was my morning routine which begins with a good nights rest. I would be more profitable on days where I completed my routine and followed the process.
Another strategy I used was to review all my setups, performance, and self-review every weekend. I keep a very detailed trading journal on a MUST HAVE software called Edgewonk.
