“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”



Whenever I am trading, I am making notes. It is just the way I operate. I find it helps me identify my weaknesses. The mind is a remarkable instrument, and it will do whatever it can to protect you from pain. That means mistakes are quickly forgotten – because they are painful. By writing the mistakes down, I can refer to them later, and then learn from them.

I also make notes of patterns that I find interesting. I often post them in my Telegram Channel for the benefit of my followers there.


These notes act as my source of inspiration for my written material. I write to make myself a better trader. I happen to like writing too. It is my way of decompressing from the tension of trading high stakes all day.

Losing tens of thousands on a trade before most people even get out of bed in the morning is a normal breakfast for me.

So is winning. I love winning, but I do not mind losing. The two go hand in hand. You cannot have one without the other.

The sooner you learn that the sooner you will become an excellent trader. Trust me on that point.

My lessons are your lessons. You are free to download all you want and need. However, I ask you to not share it. If you want someone else to benefit from the knowledge, send them to this page.
