I’m Guido, an aspiring trader from the Netherlands. Since all the Dutch trading fora are pretty death I’ve ended up here. So as an excuse upfront: English is not my native language but I’m doing the best I can. Be free to correct me though, since I’m here to learn.
I’ve been in crypto since '17. 10x my account back then, thought I had all the wisdom in the world under my belt - but yeah, everyone’s a genius during a bull market - only to see it al go down the drain. Pretty standard stuff.
That’s why earlier this year I’ve decided to put up the work and study. Been reading some of Van Tharp’s en Bob Volman’s stuff. I’ve recently ordered Trading in the zone and Al Brooks Trading Trends.
Van Tharp has really helped me to focus in on my believes, and what kind of trader I would like to be. That’s how I ended up in the currency market. Furthermore, his theory on R multiplies was surely eyeopening.
Bob Volman on the other hand triggered my passion for price action. The way he discribes the market feels a bit like a detective researching a crime scene. Really intriguing stuff. I’m not the most patient kind of guy (although I am working on that), so his approach on the 5 min scale suits me just fine.
In the meantime I’ve already learned that there’s no such thing as to get rich quick, and it really takes time and effort to learn the craft of trading. The latter is what I’m here for. To learn, and in the future to hopefully give some of that knowledge back to all the new aspiring traders.
Best Regards from the Netherlands,
