My name is Dave. I am a coder by day and trader by night.  On this site, I share my experience Trading Forex, Precious Metals, Crypto Currencies, and CFDs on Stocks, Indices and Commodities.

To read about why I trade and why I think you should too, you can read this post.

I am open about my trading by:
  • Sharing my trading performance
  • Sharing my trading plan
  • Sharing my trading ideas
  • Sharing the resources I use for trading and investing

Check My Trading Performance

My trading log supports below performance graph. You can find every trade in my trading log. I track my performance in R. To learn what R is, check out this article.

Read My Trading Plan

Every trader needs a plan. Plan your trades and trade your plan! My Trading Plan can be found here. I hope it will show you that I actually trade according to a plan and that luck is a minimal factor in my trading.

I share my trading ideas on Tradingview as a way of keeping a visual trading journal. You can follow my trading ideas as I post them on my Tradingview profile. Alternatively, you can get my trading ideas by email.

Learn My Way of Trading

Becoming a trader is a process. And although some people have a natural ability to be successful in trading, most others do not have this.

I believe anyone can learn to trade the markets.
I have spent many years studying the markets, reading books on trading, doing backtests and of course trading itself. Finally, I am at the level that I make more money then I lose. So I feel confident I can share with you what I know on the subject.

Go Through My Free Trading Course

I have written a series of posts as a Free Trading Course about: Getting Started Trading. It will help you get started trading the way I do. Below are some article titles, so you get an idea of what you will be learning. I highly suggest you go through the articles in order. Just click:

Practice Your Trading Skills

After reading my series of articles on Getting Started Trading, you are ready to practice what you have learned so far.
You can open an account at a broker and start practicing on a free demo account. Alternatively, you can fund a real account and practice trading very small position sizes. This is actually better, as with real money on the line, however small amounts, you will be able to practice the mental aspects of trading as well as the technical aspects.
As you practice you can follow along with my trading ideas by looking at my charts on Tradingview.

About My Charts

I use charting that is independent of the platform I execute trades on. I use Tradingview for my chart analyses. As an alternative, you can also use platforms like, Metatrader or CTrader. However, to use these last two platforms you will at least need to open a demo account at a broker that offers the platform and the usage of these demo accounts is often limited in time.
I recommend Tradingview, because:
  • Tradingview is free to get started.
  • Tradingview is an independent resource.
  • It offers charting, news, economic calendars, screeners, trading ideas, a trading community, all in one place.
  • It offers tools on a wide variety of instruments, like stocks, forex, bonds, ETFs, mutual funds, commodities, precious metals, and cryptocurrencies.
  • It offers a replay function that will let you backtest your strategies.
In one word: it is excellent in my opinion.
