Description

Building a Trading Strategy on your own can be Difficult and Confusing! Getting it wrong can be Disastrous to your portfolio if you don't know what to look out for.

I Intend to make the process as simple as possible for you to follow and understand. For this reason, I look into what is needed in order to have a robust Trading Strategy & how to Structure it Efficiently for your own trading.

Join me in this video course series as I show you how I create various trading systems for different types of timeframes to target.

If you follow and keep to the Strategy Layout guide, you will find building new systems to be much more satisfying and easier than ever.

We will then go through the process of how to backtest the system and what to look for in a systems results from testing in order to fix possible issues that may come up.

Who this course is for:
  • Anyone wanting to learn how to build their own trading strategies from scratch or how to test the odds of your system via backtesting should take this course as a must. It clearly lays out the process we take as pro traders to identify profitable opportunities.
  • If you are completely new to Forex Trading, this won't make any sense whatsoever. We recommend that you rather start off with our free course MetaTrader 4 Platform Trading

Our first look into strategy building. Section 8 is where the fun now starts. We will be looking at a few extra indicators here as well, some of the favourate ones I like to use. You will also see a live example of some of my trades. This would give a much more real understanding of what trading is like.

It comes down to the fact that we will always have losers showing up, the key is to make sure that when we win, we win more than we lose. This is also why I can trade a system that only wins 30% of the time, but still brings in a monthly profit of about 15-25% per month. Remember, Hit-Rate means NOTHING to the success of a strategy, It's about the profits it makes you.
