Status & Update

By |February 8th, 2017|

We have taken a big loss. I personally invested all of my available risk capital into this and lost a lot of money​. I feel defeated​. Yeah this​ was​ high risk​,​ extremely high risk​ but ​I believed in it​ being successful long term.

From the beginning I said you have to risk failure to succeed. Failing […]

New Systematic Trading

By |November 16th, 2016|

Sometimes a few words could provide an unexpected spark of encouragement.

After posting the update: `Too Aggressive, 30% is possible but..´, a long time JCL´s Forex reader wrote me, “why did your goals have to change?”

Thank you Doug.

I never had the chance to respond. And until now he had no idea how much his question […]

Too Aggressive, 30% is possible but..

By |October 21st, 2016|

After a few consistent months I genuinely assessed it was time to begin approaching our goal of 30% a month again. Today I had to stop.

Beginning Monday you will see big changes. Everything will be automated to Conquering The Markets. Instead of solely eurusd, the following pairs will be traded: eurusd, audusd, usdcad, nzdusd, nzdjpy.

Each […]

My September 2016 Monthly Performance Report

By |October 10th, 2016|

September was another solid month with a gain of 6.02%. The last few months out of prudence I needed to stabilize everything and now that that has been achieved the question is what can you expect going forward?

This month (October) and through the rest of the year you should see between +30% plus, each […]

My August 2016 Monthly Performance Report

By |September 9th, 2016|

The last two months have had solid consistent returns with this more conservative strategy and I am going to continue keeping everything very steady until I bring us back to new account highs.

Now that we are entering fall trading as all traders return from their summer holidays volume will pick up and we should see […]

My July 2016 Monthly Performance Report

By |August 15th, 2016|

I would like to express my sincere gratitude for all of the support both publicly and privately alike after last month´s report. Every word was helpful and greatly appreciated, thank you.

Back to the report. July saw a 4.88% gain. August is currently on track to surpass that. Good performance for summer trading. And I am looking to […]

My June 2016 Monthly Performance Report

By |July 11th, 2016|

Both balance and equity are up and rising since the May performance report was posted. I expect this to continue and for a solid month of gains placing back on track.

I received two emails after the last report that were a little disturbing. One basically saying don’t give any excuses in your monthly update reports just perform […]

My May 2016 Monthly Performance Report

By |June 6th, 2016|

As many of you already know I try to post my monthly performance report on the first Friday of the month. It simply was not possible to get it out to you earlier than Monday this time.

May was a devastating month ending with a realized loss of 22% and open positions well into the negative. […]

More Thoughts From The Front Line

By |May 21st, 2016|

A couple of weeks ago it looked like the dollar had the potential to propel to new lows sending the EUR/USD higher toward 1.1500 and above.

The Federal Reserve reversed the Shanghai Accord (weakening US dollar to help China’s economy) but this week the Fed meeting minutes turned hawkish sending the dollar from that breakdown […]

Thoughts From The Front Line

George Soros is arguably the best investor in the world. Billionaire investor Stanley Druckenmiller who traded under Soros has the best record in the world. Averaging 30% yearly for twenty four years.

Druckenmiller has said the most valuable lesson he learnt from Soros is “Soros has taught me that when you have tremendous conviction on a […]

My April 2016 Monthly Performance Report

By |May 3rd, 2016|

This month’s performance was disappointing. Yet I am still maintaining a 30% monthly average.

one question, does this draw down seem difficult to work out of or “lingering” in nature or is it just a run of the mill draw down that can be expected from time to time, especially trading a decent size account?

It feels […]

My March 2016 Monthly Performance Report

By |March 31st, 2016|

This month’s performance was bazooka. Almost doubling the monthly goal of 30%.

I have been receiving a lot of questions about the low lot size being traded.

At the end of the day the % return is what matters. This month was almost double the monthly goal of 30%.

There are countless factors that go into the size […]

My February 2016 Monthly Performance Report

By |March 4th, 2016|

Early in the month it was clear the eurusd was going to break out for a very big move. Which way nobody had any idea. I expected the move to be triggered by some type of fundamental news event. Instead it was purely a technical move. The pair moved 350 pips in two days. I was […]
