Hi, Dave Tromp here. I love sharing my trading and investing research on this site. Just like I believe in financial independence as a way to personal growth in freedom, I also believe in openness and transparency. In that light I would like you to read and understand two disclaimers.

Trading and investing disclaimer

All information on this site and my social media channels (Youtube, Twitter, etc.) is for educational purposes only. None of the information I provide is an advise to buy or sell a security. Always do your own homework when it comes to investing or trading. And now more official:
This website and related social media channels are neither a solicitation nor an offer to Buy/Sell securities. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those discussed on this website. The past performance of any trading system or methodology is not necessarily indicative of future results. The financial information, news and research that you may receive from this site is for general advice only, not personal advice. Do not base an investment decision solely on the information provided. You should seek your own investment advice from a financial planner who will consider your personal objectives and circumstances. Trading Forex, Crypto currencies, CFDs, Binary Options or any other financial instrument is risky. You could lose all of your money.

Affiliate disclaimer

I sometimes link to or refer to products or services for which I may or may not earn an affiliate commission. I will try and indicate whenever possible if a link or referral is an affiliate link or referral. However, this is not always possible or I might forget. So to be save, just expect every link of referral to products or services to be affiliate links or referrals. I will never link to or refer to products or services of which I do not believe they offer a lot of value to you. Also note, that buying a product or service through my links does not cost you anything extra and you can always contact me if you would like me to give you anymore information about the product or service.

It is my intention to share my knowledge and provide you with information of value. If you have any questions for me concerning these disclaimers you can always contact me by using the contact form on the contact page.

Thanks for visiting my site.
I really appreciate it!

Invest like a trader

Here is my book: "Invest like a trader". I finally decided to create this book based on my blog and experience investing, trading and coding. It is an introduction to my view on investing. For the next few days you can get a free copy on Amazon:

This book is for you if you are an investor looking to learn a more trading-like approach to investing. Buy and hold investing has become buy and pray investing, with countless sleepless nights. A more trading-like approach to investing puts you back into control of your investments and it can be a lot of fun. After reading this book you should be more able to build and grow your investment account consistently.

Link to the e-book:
Let me know what you think after reading the book. You can contact me via email or on social media. Even better, you can leave a review on Amazon.

Why I am a trader and investor and why you might wanna be one too

I am a coder by day and trader by night! Coding is my day job. I am fully aware that only having a job will not allow me to provide for my family and myself consistently in the long run. This is because most of the western societies are setup in a way to be more and more disadvantageous towards the working middle class. I do not need to be a billionaire to be happy, but our society is becoming more and more binary. It seems that one can either be rich or poor, in which case I opt to be rich, or at least hedge myself against being poor. Trading and investing are my hedge against this trend.

There are the haves, the haves not and the haves yachts! But actually we seem to be heading for a society where there are only haves not and haves yachts

Why I buy Gold and Silver

I own crypto currencies, because I have come to the conclusion that money as we know it today is no longer sustainable. I have come to this conclusion during the crisis of 2008. At that time I had the intuition / the gut feeling something was wrong not only with our financial system, but more specifically with our money. It took a few years of researching and investigating until I figured it out. The thing is, part of me did not want to believe it was true. And for a long time I did not act upon the intuition and knowledge I had. That changed last year when I decided to put my money where my mouth is and I started to accumulate crypto currencies. Cryptos align perfectly with my expertises: coding and trading. So I went for it... And with success.

Now I want to diversify my holdings more by adding Gold and Silver to it. I buy Gold and Silver as a hedge or insurance against the undwindled money printing of all of the governments / central banks of the world. Money, or actually, currenc…
