“I like the process, very helpful for the key ingredients of patience and solid Risk Management.”

Tell us something about you. How did you start trading?

I started trading as a response to requiring a secondary/primary income after losing out badly in a business venture. I wish I had found it sooner!

Can you briefly describe your trading strategy?

After a number of years trying endless strategies, I have settled for simple is best. I used a MACD as my source information, usually on a 4 hr chart and also using Weekly and Daily charts for context. Fibonacci also plays a key part.

What did you do well?

I like the process, very helpful for the key ingredients of patience and solid Risk Management. The only stressful period was towards the end when I thought I might run out of time, but I got over the line with a day to spare.

What do you need to improve?

I am still getting used to the idea of trading with weekly cut off, but I think I am there now. I still can learn to let trades run a little and moving my stop losses too aggressively has caught me out, but I am learning to keep confidence in my analysis.

Was the Challenge helpful?

Yes, it is a big help and a good discipline.

Would you recommend Challenge to other traders?

Yes, it is a very good sorting process.
