Hi and welcome to my site.
This is for traders looking to learn or improve. There are some good articles in the Blog and some useful tips, set ups, information and advice throughout. I´ll be constantly updating so keep an eye out for new content.

Daily Trade Plans
Every day prior to the European and US open, I post the levels, patterns and set ups I am looking to trade in the RTH session of the Dax40 and the S&P500.I also refer to other US markets from time to time. It is a members only sign in but it is easy to become one!
How to Trade with a focus on the Dax40 and Psychology & Trading Mindset. These 2 books cover everything you need to know and do to become a successful day trader. Method & Mindset are two sides of the same coin when it comes to trading. If you don´t have both figured out you´ll have a hard time achieving your trading goals let alone achieving peak performance.
From September 2018 to August 2019 I wrote a daily diary commentary on the Eurusd for www.thearmchairtrader.com. The aim was to set out each day precise entries, stops and targets. I also wanted an independent record of performance.
I´ve also noted here a few examples of how I trade.
Thanks for taking the time to look around my site.
I have a BA (Hons) in Economics and started my trading career in 2000 after selling my data and market analysis business. I started off by managing my own investment portfolio and a few years later I opened my first trading account and have been trading ever since.
Whichever way you learn this business and whatever you´ve done before there is no getting away from the fact that you have to put the time in. You can get a leg up by being taught by someone who knows their way around, but at the end of the day the more time you spend at the charts, the better you´ll be.
At the start of my trading career I read everything I could, got some education and glued myself to the screen. In the end, and after 000´s of hours at the charts, and having been down several rabbit runs trying out different systems and approaches (as most will do), I narrowed everything down to what made intuitive sense to me. There is no ´one way´ to trade, only your way. Best move I ever made!
I trade full time, mainly simple price action day trading, but no one is just one thing in life and whilst I am first a trader, the creative side of me enjoys writing. I like "making things" and books are my thing :). I also enjoy teaching (though I have little time these days) but if you´re interested in learning how to "be a trader" not just how to trade, drop me a line. I wont ever tell you its a walk in the park - it´s not. Its incredibly hard work. But if you´re serious and really do want to learn contact me via Twitter DM or email. I´m always happy to chat to traders and would be traders and I´ll always give you a honest heads up.
