How long did it take you to become profitable and how did you become consistent?

It took me a while to find a strategy that works for me and I found this strategy about 3 months ago, after backtesting and applying the strategy in my demo account I found that it’s a profitable strategy and as long as I stick to it quite strictly it became more consistent.

What trading methods do you use? Elaborate on your trading style.

I use a combination of 3 moving averages at 21,50 and 200 with the assistance of the RSI. I will enter a buy when the candle after the breakthrough above the 3 averages occurs and a sell with the opposite. I also look for further confirmation on the rsi being above 50 for a buy and below 50 for a sell. This along with trading in a channel and looking for patterns. Mainly double tops and bottoms. I pick my highs and lows on the 1hr time and trades the 5 min charts around these levels.

What has been your biggest hurdle to overcome?

Being impulsive and impatient. Up until the past few months this was an inside with mine and not trusting my analysis and trades. Since this, I am now much better although not perfect. I am learning to take myself away from the charts regularly whilst in a trade and check periodically to see what is happening. Only at certain points will I adjust my trade.

What has been your best moment in your trading career?

Reaching my targets on my £2,500 account to give me reassurance that I could have a career in something I really enjoy. And to do it so quick!

FTUK Funded Account Disclaimer

CFTC Rule 4.41 – Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations. Unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, because the trades have not actually been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs, in general, are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown.

All our funded accounts come with a fixed equity stop out level. Once the account equity level gets below this fixed stop out bar, we will close all running trades and disable trading and access. The stop out level is a fixed value for each funding level, this means that any profit which has been made by the trader increases the loss allowance.
