Trading

Becoming a trader is a process. Although some people have a natural ability to be successful in trading, most others do not have this. I think everyone can learn to trade the markets. I have spent many years studying the markets, reading books on trading, doing back tests and of course trading. Finally, I am at the level that I make more money then I loose. So I feel confident I can share with you what I know on the subject. I will not give you a magic formula that will make you rich, but I intend to teach you a set of skills that will allow you to trade in a way, that you will not loose your shirt doing it and will give you a reasonable chance of actually making money.

Read on if you want to learn to trade the market the way I do.

Below are a series of articles that are aimed at helping you get started trading. The list is in the order that I intend them to be read, but feel free to skip around.
If you follow my blog via Email you will receive notifications of new articles I post.

In the articles I reference different resources you can use. I have conveniently list out all the resources I reference and more on the resources page.

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: https://amzn.to/2JjwQqj

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.

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.

The super rich and us Below are two videos from the BBC documentary "The Super Rich and Us". It clearly illustrates and explains the polarization of wealth distribution in our current society. Here is a catchy quote from the documentary:

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

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…
