Hello dear readers,

Time for yet another update!
My account grew to a balance of 19 265 Euro so it's still picking up more steam after a few slower weeks.
The software has made 354 trades since the start in February.
So this is around 3-4 trades a day with a ratio of 66,67 % positive trades and 33,33% negative trades.

I'm going to try to give another update tomorrow.

Your mind is a powerfull tool if you only put positive thoughts in it.

I think everybody has read a book about the impact of positive thinking on your life.
But the truth is it's easier to fall down in a negative spiral than a positive one.
People often tend to look at something in a negative way, but in this case you'll never become successful in anything you do in your life.

I've read a few books about the impact a positive mindset can do and I'm harvesting the fruits of it now.
In the beginning I could look at this investment as something that's to good to be to true, but the result would be that I missed a great opportunity to create wealth.

I'm not saying someone should  just plunge into something without looking at it from all angles, but sometimes it's better to give the benefit of the doubt and take a positive approach on it.

for example this investment.
If it shouldn't work out I've learnt a great lesson and even a few ways of trading I would never thought out of myself.
Like I said a bit earlier on my blog, I never lose, either I win or I learn.

I wish you all a weekend with a positively filled mindset!

Still a nice return of 81% in a litlle under 6 months.
the software has made 320 trades during this period with a positive rating of 65,3% (so of all the trades 65,3% where profitable and the others where negative).

How Trading software gets connected.

Hello readers,

I've recieved a few mails from people who asked me how I work with the software.
So I thought why not make a little blog post about it:
Now how it works is the following, if people want to work with the software they'll need to open an account with a broker the software is compatible with (loop-strategy will give you a list of brokers you can chose from).
Then you open a personal account on your own name, the only person who's able to withdraw or put aditional funds to this account is yourself (a hughe plus, because you're fully in control over your own account).
I've tried it and let my girlfriend withdraw money to her personal bank account, but it got rejected.

Once you opend your account you'll need to send your logins to loop-strategy and they'll put their software on your account.
So there is no need to let your pc run day and night for the software to work,
In case you decide to quit it's just simple, you change your passwords and the software isn't able to connect annymore.

In my eyes these are some great advantages, because you're not tied to a contract and you're able to use it for as long as you want.

In this way they operate on a highly transparant way, because they don't hold your money (this is done by the broker of your choice), and you're able to see the results day by day and make a choice to continue or stop using the software.

Positive and negative things about the trading software


I'm using the software now for a little bit over 5 months.
so I thought it was a perfect time to give a review about the software.

Negative points:
-In rougher market circumstances I noticed the software has allot of positions, sometimes these positions stay open for a long time.

-The software is completely dependable on the speed and execution of the broker (so if there are price gaps or spread spikes the software has a hard time to put right positions to counter it).

-Their website is rubbish :)

So far these two points feel like the biggest downsides of the software.

Positive points:

-The compounding effect has to be one of the biggest upsides, thanks to this my account grows more rapidly.
Instead of 10-15% on 10,000 Euro I now have 10-15% profits on 18,000 Euros (that makes a big difference off course).

-I do feel the developers have their priorities straight, they rather put more effort into the software then updating or making their brand more appealing.

-In the picture (click to enlarge) you'll see what kind of market conditions the software survived during my 5 month usage.

The market switched from a ranging market in the beginning (ups and downs with good volatility) to a more trending market.
But software managed to adapt itself to overcome both markets and leave me with a profit.

-The support I get is also a good upside, if I have a question I'll get a quick response in a way it's understandable for someone who doesn't know everything on the Forex market.

For now I hope everybody going to enjoy his weekend!

A new update of my trading software investment:

The account has grown to 18 158 Euro, this makes it a total of 81,58% net profit (the fees for the rent of the software are already deducted from these results).
These results have been made in a little more then 5 months.
People often use an excuse if something is to good to believe it's often is.
But I've done my research and if this is a scam I'm a terrible detective :)
For example:
-I have my own personal account.
-I'm the only one who's able to ad additional or withdraw funds (the account is connected to a bank account on m name).
-If I want to quit I simply change the passwords and their software isn't able to connect anymore.
-Most important of all are the results, in my case they don't lie.
-They are transparant in what they do (no hidden costs, have a good support if I have some questions, etc)

Explenation of some terms used in the Forex.

As it is the case with every market there are a few terms people should know before they start investing.
I'll try to sum a few up and explain what they mean.
Feel to comment if you know of other important ones that I might forget.

1) Spread:
This is the difference between the bid prices and the asking price.
Most of the time if you open an position you are immediately in loss because of the difference in spread (this is not a problem if you have a strategy that focuses on bigger profits then smaller profits).
Almost every broker has their business model based on this spread, so they receive a part of the spread as compensation for the use of their platform, services and liquidity.

2) Pip or pips:
This means percentage in profit, in the Forex market the difference in price movements is called pip so in other word when a price moves 20 units in your favour and you shut down the positions you've earned 20 pips.
A pip measures the amount of change in the exchange rate for a currency pair. For currency pairs displayed to four decimal places, one pip is equal to 0.0001.

3)Stop loss:
Most traders use a stop loss to step out of a trade if this is a losing one.
Now I've seen the software uses a different stop loss it uses some sort of double hedge stop loss to clear the loss and have an overall profit.
Anyway stop losses can be a great tool, but allot of trader use a stop loss based on emotions, this can destroy your account because you'll close the position on the least favourable time and thus end up with a bigger loss.

This is the take profit.
You can put a profit target on your trade so you don't need to stay behind your platform in order to click for a profit.

 This is the size of a trade most small account can trade starting from 0,01the size of your trade determines the size of your profit or loss.
Depending on your trading style you can choose to either have a few smaller positions with different stop losses and take profits or you can use a single big position if you are truly convinced of the direction your pair is heading.

If you want to see some more terms get explained, feel free to comment on this blog post.

As promised my latest update of my account.

(Click on the picture to enlarge it)
The account has grown to 17 947 Euro with a start capital of 10.000 Euro on 12-02-2015.
This gives it a nice return on investment of 79.47% in 5 months time.
Needless to say I'm a happy man!
The software needed 312 trades to accomplish these profits.
Feel free to visit for a longer trackrecord (they have one of a period longer than 2 years).

As for now I wish you all a great weekend!


This time it's different!

This quote gives me mixed feelings.
Everybody knows the feeling when an investment goes wrong and you decide to plunge right back in it and you say to yourself this time it's different.
Well to burst the bubble, if you haven't learnt anything from the loss you'll probably end up losing again.

A good example, I first started trading manually on my own behalf (I thought I had a solid system).
But then I made a few bad trades and lost a big chunk of my money, at this moment I decided to take a step back and withdrew the rest of my money.
A few days I've tried to figure out what has gone wrong.
I came to the conclusion, that my strategy just wasn't waterproof to work with the changing market conditions.

But the Foreign exchange market got me in his grip and I tried to figure out how to earn a piece of the pie.
As you can see in this picture, the market is the biggest in the world:

A big market means allot of people trying to figure out how to make profits on it.
There is a saying 95% of the people on this market losses his money.
So I'm glad at the moment I'm sitting with the 5% who earns a big profit on it.

The changing from trading manually to working with software was a big adjustment, but I'm glad I pushed through and started using the software of loop-strategy.

Later on I'll give a new update on how my account's performing.

The difference between brokers

Some people don't know this but in this market there are different brokers.
You have:

A) Market makers:
A market maker broker, or a dealing desk, is a broker which purchases a given financial instrument at their own risk. Each market maker competes for customer order flow by displaying buy and sell quotations for a guaranteed number of instruments.
They make money through the fixed difference between the bid and ask price.
These can be good brokers, but if you have a broker that takes positions against you you'll be in deep trouble, because they rather want you to lose your money (like 95% of the people who trade manually do).
In this way they can manipulate the spreads, tell you your strategy isn't allowed or just simply make it hard for you to make a profit (spread spikes, reqoutes, etc),
The bad ones are called bucket shops,
Please be aware I'm not saying every market maker is a bucket shop, there are truly legit one out there,
A good list can be found here:

B) ECN brokers:

ECNs pass on prices from multiple market participants, such as banks and market makers, as well as other traders connected to this, and display the best bid/ask quotes on their trading platforms based on these prices. ECN-type brokers also serve as counter parties to forex transactions, but they operate on a settlement, rather than pricing basis.
Electronic networks make money by charging customers a fixed commission for each transaction. Authentic ECNs do not play any role in making or setting prices, therefore, the risks of price manipulation are reduced for retail traders.
Lately there is a big rise of ECN brokerages and I strongly support this.
A list of this type of broker can be found here:

Side note:
When looking for a good broker you'll always need to do your own homework.
Can you find bad reviews on the Internet, what kind of support do they offer (phone, mail and chat), how quickly are they with respones.
The most important for me is how quick they process withdrawals.

Finding a good system is one, but finding a good broker is another big thing.
I've asked the people of Loop what they see as a good broker and they said they like to work with Key to markets and Topfx.

Don't let emotions get in the way of investment decisions

I've never heard a successful investment story began with,"I've earned 100K investing with my gut instead of my head."
Emotional investment can deliver you big returns, but it can also completely wipe out your entire portfolio.
I've made these mistakes myself, I thought I had a great strategy, won a few trades, but then lost big because I didn't use a stop loss.
At that point I withdrew myself out of the market, and started thinking what would help me to build my portfolio on a more stable way then the emotional roller coaster I was in.
The only thing that always beats emotions is rational thinking, but to achieve this I had to shut down every emotion.

The biggest trap is emotional investing, where the short-term emotions of a market surge or collapse causes you to do something contrary to your long-term investment strategy. In short, what might appear to be great or cautious investment, behaviour might actually be irrational euphoria (greed) or even fear.

Actually, the best investors have a well-thought-out, disciplined investment process and only succeed when sticking to, and making decisions based on, their process.

After searching a while I finally found the software that would be an ideal fit to me,
At the moment I consider this software as my investment manager, that allows me to be on a market with a higher potential for profits and something that makes me rational instead of emotional!

A next chapter in my trading software investment!
The software keeps on performing on a high level.
I'm using it now for 5 months and it hasn't left me down one bit.
However I'm aware the software is only able to perform if the market conditions are there.

As you can see the account has risen to 17 766 Euro this gives a ROI of 77,66% in 5 months (on average 15,5% each month).
I don't think there are allot of investment that are able to generate these type of returns with a relatively lower risk level.

The benefits of compounding your investment.

First of all what is compound interest:
Compound interest is paid on your principle plus on the interest you have already earned.

A quick example using my account ( to show you what compounding interest can create)
I've started +- 5 months ago with 10.000 euro.
I decided to keep my funds in my account and not withdraw the profits each months (so compounded interest).
Thanks to this I now have around 80% profits, but if I would have taken my profits out of the account every month I would have had around 6000 (or 60%) in profits.

Compound interest is great when it works in your favor in investments, but it can also be your biggest enemy when it works against you in loans and other debts. The key is to figure out how you can let it work in your favor. If you stay on top of your loan payments and always keep an eye on your investments, then compound interest can be your best friend when it comes to wealth. Having control of your personal finances makes it easier to navigate the road as you look towards the future.

A great quote:
“Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.” – Warren Buffett

A consideration is how often the interest is compounded; an investment with interest compounded monthly will grow faster than an investment with interest compounded annually.

Hi again!

It's the end of the week so I'll give a new update on how my investment using trading software from goes.

(click on the picture to enlarge)

The account sits on a profit of 7 740 Euro this is a nice 77.4% return on investment.
In total there have been 304 trades  of these there are 64.8% (197) positive trades and 35.2% (107) negative trades.
To have a winning systems your positive trades have to outperform your negative trades.

A few days I said I would think about what to do with this investment (take back my initial deposit, throw in some extra funds or just sit back and enjoy the ride).
I'm going to go for the last option.
In my next post I'll give some more information about the compounding effect.

I never lose either I win or I learn!

I've always kept this quote in the back of my mind.
Like everyone in the hard world of investing, I've also lost money and gained money.
But I never felt sad when I lost money, because I knew I was learning some valuable lessons.
I tried to figure out a strategy in binary options (didn't work out well), after that I switched my focus to Forex, where I quickly learnt you'll need to have a solid strategy when you want to earn some big money in this market.

Somehow this market attracted me, so I kept searching for opportunities to make sure I was able to have profits.
When I came across this software and the impressive track record I just knew I learnt a new valuable lesson that works out the way I visualised it!
One of the important things is that my emotions are shut down, the biggest mistake manual traders make is letting emotions like fear and greed get in the way of logical thinking!

Feel free to leave a comment with your preference manual trading or trading using software!
