GREAT WEEK so far!

Phase 3 Trading desk 3rd PRO-trading desk Technical Part
To remind you
Phase 1 : Trading desk 1st trading desk 1st October 2015
Phase 2 Trading desk 2nd new practical trading desk mid-November 2015
During Christmas period, I managed to pull off the PRO-trading desk in my mind.

A couple of  ballpark figures:
– 12 screens (each one has a specific goal) one missing, underway…
– 3 internet provider(s) (backup)
– 4 PC
– 4500 $ equipment investment all in all
– 5500 $ bootcamp training investment
TOTAL 10.000 $

I’m working around the clock to make it happen.
Frankly, BIG DEAL has even not started, yet I’m ELATED and heading to the top of my requirements list.

Why i am moved while receiving the monitor desk mount today

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.

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)

2 Get 2 powerful PC to trade ( backup PC )

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.

I was elated to set up my  first trading desk. I ‘ll recall this day 10 years from now. A bit like your first child, see what i mean.

Trading platform may have all the latest bells and whistles.  However, the  linchpin  lies in my skills as trader. Nothing else.

On the FOREX, i got some meaningful insights after 1 month of monitoring

Cable was 1.1191    30th sept. 2015

Cable is 1.0782  today, 09th nov. 2015

EUR/USD went down 409 pips since i first monitored the cable on MT4 . Many lessons learned!

 

Ninja was 119.92    30th sept. 2015

Ninja is 123.48  today, 09th nov. 2015

USD/JPY went up 356 pips since i first monitored the cable on MT4 . Many lessons learned!

Forex with Metatrader 4

What happened the 17th september 2015

Metatrader MT4  set up.

I discovered the metatrader platform during a FED announcement (see economic calendar). I was like a child in “candy store” ( albeit candys = organic fruits for me). That day, i knew i would be a trader.

I’ve done lots of research about retail trader vs professional trader since. At the end of the day, tools are ONLY tools. Market makers may try you to get hooked with them. 98% retail trader fail because of these “tools” that turn trading into a video game.

Nevertheless, i could feel my heart beat because it was the 1st time. Great day!   Life is about mastery. Mastery is about working smartly 115.000 hours  20 years in a row, year in year out.

Lesson learned: tools do not make you an outstanding trader. Mastery does.
