About Me

My photo
I am a full-time FX trader with 12 years' experience. I've worked professionally as a trader with a number of corporates and also a Sovereign Wealth Fund. The strategy that I employ is an adaptation of the "old-school" price action support & resistance strategy, using pivot points. Though my trading strategy & system can easily be applied to any currency pair, my current favourites are USD/JPY, EUR/JPY and GBP/JPY.

RTFX Tradertip Nostromo Scenarios

Elliott : extension wave down 129.7139.
Market should not go lower than 129.6951. After this move down it should go up to 131.5035 - 131.9020 area.


Elliott : flat correction down 129.2227.
Market should not go lower than 130.4540 - 129.1457. After this move down it should go up to 132.4895 - 133.2167 area.


Elliott : flat correction down 129.9450.
If market stays below 134.0565 a fall to 129.1927 is expected. If market breaks the point 136.2407 it could reach the sky.

minibahn Mafia:
Daily bias is short. EUR/JPY has gone as low as 130.07. It's plausible that the flat correction down has NOT YET completed. There's a confluence of pivots below: DS2 128.97, WS1 129.10 and MoS1 128.99 that attract.

EUR-JPY higher, new daily high close above DR1 133.44.

EUR-JPY higher, new daily high close above DR1 133.44.

Fixed Ratio Money Management

It's been a while since I last blogged about Money Management, what many consider to be the most important yet overlooked subject in trading. As one of the three (3) pillars of trading success (the other two being Mind and Method), I therefore feel that I have an obligation to share more of my thoughts on the matter.
