Timon, what made you want to become a trader in the first place?
I remember sitting at a restaurant when I was just 16. A tall man wearing a formal suit approached me with a mysterious black box.
He asked me if I would like the power to make money using a completely different approach to conventional methods.
I was instantly hooked. And without hesitation I bought the big box.
It was called the London School of Investments trading package, which had some software and three detailed books. I spent hours reading through it every day.
I read through it thoroughly for about six months before I made my first trade. And since then, my passion for trading has only grown.
You’ve traded for a decade, and the thing you always keep saying is how important the mind is when trading. Why?
The psychology of trading is the most important aspect to becoming a successful trader.
I believe that the right mental attitude should be over 80% of a trading strategy.
People can have the most bullet proof trading systems in the world, but if they can’t keep their emotions in check, I guarantee you they’ll lose all their money!
One of the top trading books I’ve read on trading psychology that should be on your reading list is Jack Schwager – “Market Wizards”.
He goes around the world interviewing the top traders around. Never once will you hear them talk about their system but rather about their money management rules and psychology when they trade, as these are what are most important to a top trader.
There are countless things you can trade, why do you enjoy Forex?
The beauty about trading forex is that no matter where I am in the world, I can trade Forex and look at the same currency pairs that every forex trader looks at in the world. You don’t have to worry about a currency crumpling or going bankrupt like you do with shares.
It’s a 24 hours-a-day, five days a week market, so I don’t ever have to worry about holding my Forex trade overnight because I can always get out of the market if a black swan decides to drop in on the world.
Another reason that I like Forex is that it fits with my winning strategy and that in a $5 trillion a day market, you can be certain that the market will trend on a daily basis!
What style of trading do you use to make your profits?
Let me first say that your trading personality is everything. It defines your trading style, what you can handle and what you can’t.
My style is called break-out trading. It’s based on the idea of following momentum that’s established in the market through specific charting setups.
I believe any trading strategy or style can work as long as it fits your character and you have very strict rules in place.
In your Forex seminar, what will people learn?
