A Simple Forex Strategy

Accountability, Commitment and Writing Down One’s Goals

This much I know about Forex. Because of the unlimited profit potential the forex markets draw some of the brightest minds in the world which compete in a zero sum game. In order to succeed you have to be prepared. This is why I choose the three points of being accountable, committed, and writing down my goals.

My Strategy for approaching the markets

Accountability – By making my goals and performance public I am holding myself accountable. I am doing this simply to help me reach my dreams. I want to be one of the best forex traders in the world. Do you want the freedom trading for a living can bring?

Commitment – I have been trading since 2001. Oh yeah, I am committed. But now I am making a commitment. I am posting my short term, mid term, and long term goals. I am going to use this site to keep working toward achieve those goals. I ask the help of you and all of my readers to help me stay focused.

Writing down goals – I have heard that people who write down goals have a much higher chance of achieving them. Just as a Forex Trading Plan is essential for any trader so is writing down your goals.

These are my goals for the year:

  • Short term (1 to 3 months) – to share on this site how I make money online trading forex and post monthly performance reports.
  • Mid term ( 6 months) – $5,000 a month in passive income to make additional regular deposits into my trading account.
  • Long term (1 year) – a return of 50% of my trading account.
  • Release a Conquer V2 EA to the group for fully automatic trading.
  • Come up with the audacity to try and create a system that produces over a 100% return yearly.

These are my initial goals. It took several minutes of thinking to come up with my list and I know will be instrumental in me reaching them. I am sure that I will be in for a few surprises and new things I never on planned on will come to fruition. I look forward to revisiting my goals at the end of the year to see how I did.

    My goal is to perfect my trading in order to have money to give to churches around the country.

      Steve, it’s very refreshing to hear that; my goal is similar except that my primary focus is on Christian work in parts of the world where there is considerable deprivation.
