This course goes into detail about the correct way in which we need to structure our own built systems to removed problematic areas. 

This skill is something that is seen as a big part of Pro trading. Being able to build your own strategies means that you will always be prepared for market changes when combing it with solid backtesting of your system. 

The Backtesting and strategy building go hand in hand in forming a successful strategy and mastering these aspects of your trading will send your profits into the green. 

If you find yourself doubting systems, not making money or just looking for new ways to target the market, then this course is for you!

More detailed content is still on it's way!!!

Who is the target audience?
  • 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.
