- I play classical piano, and since 2017 also the accordion, which I like very much: Tangos, Mussettes, Waltzes, Bosanova - nice instrument that allows the player to trave all over the world.
Married to a russian pianist and coreographer, who has been my inspiration to step forward and finally trade professionally.
When single I was able to learn a lot of things, had all the time in the world, and also coded a lot. Now I trade.
It takes a man a long time to learn all the lessons of all his mistakes.
They say there are two sides to everything. But there is only one side in the Forex market; and it is not the bull side or the bear side, but the right side. It took me longer to get that general principle fixed firmly in my mind than it did most of the more technical phases of the game of currency speculation.
There is nothing like losing all you have in the world for teaching you what not to do.
And when you know what not to do in order not to lose money, you begin to learn what to do in order to win. Did you get that? You begin to learn!
One of the most helpful things that anybody can learn is to give up trying to catch the last pip or the first. These two are the most expensive pips in the world. They have cost traders, in the aggregate, enough millions of dollars to build a concrete highway across the continent.
Without faith in his own judgment no man can go very far in this game. That is about all I have learned to study general conditions, to take a position and stick to it. I can wait without a twinge of impatience.
Whenever I have had the patience to wait for the market to arrive at what I call a Pivotal Point before pulling the trigger; I have always made money in my operations.
