First, they ignore you,
then they laugh at you,
then they fight you,
then you win
- Mahatma Gandhi

I am opening the introduction with my favorite Gandhi quote. I am sure you know it yourselves. Nobody trusts in you, they discourage you and warn you “if it were so easy, everybody would do it”. But you do not let these words stop you, you do not get discouraged and you win in the end.
I started trading forex since autumn of 2001. I work as a financial advisor since 2002 when I joined the register of financial advisers. The forex market has always been the main attraction.

 When did you first discover ZuluTrade? What was it about ZuluTrade that got your interest?

In social trading, ZuluTrade is the most famous.

 Give us the basic structure of your strategy

My trading is only “technical”. The basic premise for building a high-quality strategy is to have a precise and accurate backtest. I use a combination of indicators that design a support and resistance, if I break these lines then I buy or sell. The loss is covered by a tight stop loss of max 35 pips. Profit runs until it hits the stop trailing. My favorite indicators are: Bollinger Bands, Moving Average, ATR, Ichimoku Kinko Hypo, RSI, CCI. My aim, therefore, should not be to try to find one top strategy that earns hundreds of percent a year but to find a portfolio of good strategies that complement each other. This allows gaining outstanding equity in real trading and long-term stable profits. A very important indicator that lets me know how profitable the strategy is. Its value means the total profit / maximum drawdown.

 What’s your trade management approach – taking profit and exits, trade size and account- level risk management?

Advanced money management that is recommended for real trading. The strategy will risk a given % of equity on every trade. This is simple, but very effective money management that will allow the strategy to increase the number of lots as your account grows. It is generally recommended to risk maximum 2-10% of account equity per one trade.

 How can your followers get the best by your strategy?

Patience is a virtue in most endeavors in life, and it's certainly a valuable asset in forex trading.
1- remain on board even during the period of stagnation.
2- recommended money management is : Torus001 200$ 0.01 lots , Pantokrator 200$ 0.01 lots , Prosilio 400$ 0.01 lots , Pantokrator2 100$ 0.01 lots.

 How do you feel when you have a good and a bad trade? How are you dealing with this?

Similar to any trader. Correct data settings are the major issue for me. The single operation is not important, but the return/drawdown ratio, stability, profit factor, standard dev, max stagnation are important.

 Finally, if you could give some advice for the aspiring traders out there, what would it be?

Trading using Zulutrade is a great way to earn money and gain extra time. But only disciplined and responsible attitude leads to good results. Never interfere with trades that are running. If a strategy doesn’t have good results and overcomes 1.5 multiple of historical drawdown then turn it off. This is the only intervention you should do. Choose a strategy with a low maximum drawdown. I wish you to experience this moment called insight and to start a journey that will take you miles ahead, that you gain more free time and the forex market becomes your business and source of income!

I wish you success on your way of responsible trading and also have a great start in earning money using the Zulutrade program.

Trading spot currencies involves substantial risk and there is always the potential for loss. Your trading results may vary. Because the risk factor is high in the foreign exchange market trading, only genuine "risk" funds should be used in such trading.
