Trading style

I usually trade the spot FX markets using high leverage on a short time frame in anticipation of an exceptional market opportunity. My philosophy behind this approach is that often, traders need to wait for a market opportunity to arise and act timely when market conditions are favourable. My main rule and recommendation always consists of two points: “Do not trade as much as you can” and “Do not lose an opportunity when it comes up”. What markets have taught me is always to remember that only the final result matters.
