You should strive for healthy food during holiday periods.  Everything you see on the plate  is organic, no meat, and as fresh as possible. Sometimes, i fail to eat healthy as much as i wish.  I learn from experience and try to do better the next day.

I noticed HOW CLEAR my mind is after 20/30 top notch  meals in a row . I witnessed a very kinda foggy, murky state of mind.

CEREALS

I made some research for a couple of months. I was blown away. I believe there is a deep link between our level of awareness and our daily  cereals intake (regardless of the type of cereal)! Growing of cereals is very recent in the history of mankind. Do your due diligence and ask yourself. I was so deeply moved by the information i got that i am speechless to date. One question:  From hunter-gatherer farmer to farmer, how did our DIGESTIVE SYSTEM adapt so quickly?

Whether you care or not, in the long run, the price for your health may very expensive. Why not do some research? It’s about your health my friend. Not a vacation you plan or a home you buy!

 

TRADING is about being very clear in your mind while thinking at the speed of light! Absence of mind is very costly! Would you let the food you eat hamper your trading plan?

Why you should grasp the big picture as a trader

It just dawned on me! Trading is part of my

overall experience. My overall experience is part of “Gaia”. Gaia is part of the milky way. The milky way is part of the multiverse!

Trading is part of my overall experience. My overall experience is part of “Gaia”. Gaia is part of the milky way. The milky way is part of the multiverse!

Trade in  peace with yourself

Trade to get the most amount of joy! Not pain

Trade without being obsessed by “millions”.  Trading is a game you deem worth your time. Nothing Else. Period!

Trade with being NOT deluded by “success” or “failure”. Both of them are made up in your mind.

 

IF YOU TRADE TO GET LOADS OF MONEY  ONLY, GET OUT OF THE TRADING CAREER RIGHT OFF THE BAT.

Lesson(s) learned to date: trading is about understanding deeply your inner self.  The day you can LET GO TO THE UTMOST OF YOUR LIMIT,  you will succeed as a trader.

Why i am moved while receiving the monitor desk mount today

photo

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SYMBOL

This  eagerly awaited material is a small step toward my outcome. At the same time, this is symbolic. The quad monitor desk mount means the starting point for my new world.

EMULATE

It reminds me my first car. Indeed, material(s) are mere accessories as a trader. If you go around prop. trading desk  / hedge fund in UK/US, you will notice the “monitor desk mount” symbol everywhere. Emulate what works and understand why the most successful people in your field do what they do.

MEANING

Understand that events are NEUTRAL. They are not bad nor good. The meaning that is given to them, is the real deal.  Force yourself to give empowering meaning to every event in your life.

Why you should trade conflict-free : i spoke to my father…

14797475543_a96f43a26b_o

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Read MY POST WHILE LISTENING to “groove armada, Hands of TIME” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CedVxOZ6xAA) You will get a better feeling of my message.

1  MY” OUTLIER” CHRISTMAS
I took 2-days off. The 24th and 25th December. I met my father again after decades of absence. I understood in-depth parts of my life. I mean business. Really, really deep part of myself. My childhood, my permanent leave from my native country…. and so much more were discussed. My father and my mom divorced when I was 5. I barely know my father.

2 TOUGH QUESTIONS ASKED to MY FATHER
We talked together about 1 hour. Just 1 hour ! Oh boy, i was asking many questions and i was ALL EARS. I got answers to all my questions. I don’t know if i will see my father again. However, I am FREE, so FREE, this very day.

3 DO NOT PUT OFF THE TOUGH QUESTIONS. YOU MAY NEVER BE ABLE TO ASK THEM AGAIN
I got it. LIFE is NOT about how long you live. Life is to OPEN YOUR HEART and ask the TOUGHEST QUESTIONS. It hurts, you may cry, suffer a lot. In the end, life is about solving the hardest challenge you face. Not the comfortable ones.

4 TRADER
As a result, I am TOTALLY free of inner conflict as a trader trainee.
Thanks to ,
My better half,
My Father,
My Mother, deceased
“Fripouille” deceased

5 VOW
I PROMISE, because of you, I will be on the top of my game. The next decade, i will be the very best version of myself, as a trader. I have a very precise outcome in my written plan.
Life is not about success, family, money, health…. Life is far more than that.This is what life is about:
Quote “I challenge you to make your life a masterpiece. I challenge you to join the ranks of those people who live what they teach, who walk their talk.” Tony Robbins.

As part of my journey, I set up a new trading desk for scalping.

Hardware devices 

1 Backup internet provider. I tripled my internet provider! 3 provider(s)

3 Get a dozen of screens for very different purposes. PRO trader do trade with multiple screens while scalping.

My “present” for my birthday :  set up  a new trading desk

My best birthday EVER !
I will pull it off .
I have burned the boat.
There is no turning back.
Nothing is holding me back.

I will post pictures as soon as the new trading desk is up and running.

Life is better EACH DAY. Every day. Someone asked me lately: what would you do with 10 millions dollar today?

My  answer: keep moving forward my journey as a trader … The only difference: with more

The only difference: with more mone,  I will speed up my journey.

Why celebrate the effort is way more crucial than the outcome

photo

 

 

 

 

 

Celebration

I took the time to celebrate. Eating out was really a rare and special time . You should celebrate your efforts. You should pat yourself on the back because you’re working around the clock to pull it off.The process towards the outcome is way more important than the result.  Your baby steps are the linchpin of your success.  You should reward them while moving forward. 

Vacation / Days off

In society, people set rules so that you can take vacations. As a trader, the market helps you to fit in the best moment of the year to take days off.  Sometimes it may be tied to public/school holidays, sometimes not. Create a life where your subconscious mind dictactes when you need to chill out.

Why trading the news is not for the faint-hearted

photo

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is it! Trading the news.
I’m working my butt off to get the ability to trade news events
like “FED FOM Press Conference: 1st hike rate for the last decade”!
You MUST be well prepared and leave no stones unturned. A great trade is likely to happen if the right amount of work is done properly.

I could see on my different screens some interesting events today before and during the news event. Most retail traders do not trade the news. And I think they are right. Why? There is no place for the layman.

Let’s make the magic happen and turn into an actor in the future.
I believe whatever you do for a living, you should do your best to expand in your chosen area. As far as possible!

Trading demands top-notch skills. It’s one of the toughest competition in the world.

TEENAGER
When I was a teenager, I was wired to be a competitor(athlete at a national level, chessplayer ditto). Today, I am mentally ready to undertake the trader challenge. I will win. The question is not if, but when.

BELIEF
Why can I be so sure? I am not boasting about. I’m just so deeply committed to winning the game that I have started off to train myself as if I was going to take part to the next Olympic game in Tokyo 2020. I mean business.

AREAS
I have chosen a couple of key areas to be an expert. I’ll talk about it later on.

Broad view of key areas for a “trading business model”:

1 Deep knowledge of derivatives markets

2 Fundamentals analysis & Technical Analysis

3 Trading Psychology & Money Management

4 Market analysis & Trade Ideas Generation

5 Physical Body & Mind by achieving peak state 24/7

My 2 cents: if you really want to pull it off as much as you want to breathe, nobody can prevent you from achieving your outcome. Period. The most important word: “as much as you want to breathe”.

How the tradersexpo stretched my imagination and challenged my mind

Traders Expo London DEC 2015

Hotel Grand Connaught Rooms

I am elated. This 4th tradeshow within 3 months helped me to grasp so many important Stuff as a trader.

The more you meet the right people, the more you can emulate success at the speed of light. After +400 hours of in-depth research in the world of trading, broker, hedge fund, an investment bank and prop. trading desk, I eventually understood what kind of role i want to play in the financial markets.

Lesson learned

You may be rip-off quickly out there if you don’t do your DUE-DILIGENCE.
You may be crushed you don’t fully understand what a trader lifestyle is.
You may be deluded if you do NOT who you are BEFORE you start a trader career

Ground preparation BEFORE trading

I attended a number of tradeshow(s)/exhibition(s), and it helped me to avoid so many pitfalls BEFORE starting my journey.

I created a personalised bootcamp training to fit in my new life as a trader

I got the support of my beloved one to become a great trader for the next decade

I cleaned up all the mess in my life to be ready for the next couple of years to trade at the top level

I am about to CELEBRATE the challenges we overcame since the last couple of years. Heading to Florida (US) for a road trip in 2016!

Tradeshow/Exhibition are a good start and an awesome way to make up your mind at the end of the day. NEVER isolate yourself while heading to your trader journey.

How to expand your ideas through tradeshow/exhibition…

photo

 

 

 

 

 

When you start off trading, you DON’T know what you DON’T know.
Therefore, keeping a very open-minded spirit the first year is the terrific way to shape your beliefs as a trader.

3 goals in mind while travelling in the UK.

goal 1 : be very open-minded while building up my world as a trader
goal 2 : meet some very interesting people. Opportunities don’t just show up. We create them
goal 3 : get out of my comfort zone. Back home, set up tighter deadline in correlation with my overall experience in a 48h-business trip.

Many pros vs  few cons as long as you keep your expenses low while traveling as a trader trainee. The upside is unlimited and downside lies down to expenses and spending 72h outside your multi-trading-screens
