So much news this week & NFP today = a very quiet one.
Wanted to add more analytics to my Evernote trading homepage but it turned out to be a huge ball ache so started designing a new one instead which I'll be making the switch on to next week.
Use your time wisely, just because markets are slow doesn't mean you should stop improving your systems 🙏🏼

February's markets have been very quiet (for me) taking only a handful of trades and sat at a modest +0.8% profit. Coming from four 10%+ months in a row it's very important to keep patient, trust your analysis and only execute when you see your strategy giving supreme entries.
Markets move however the fuck they want to and we're just here trying to catch some pips off them. They don't respect you and they shouldn't, don't fall in love with a trade, no matter how many confluence factors you stack on your side and how perfect a set up looks it WILL NOT play out every time.
Do not let this fact effect your mindset, stay solid and be 100% ready to execute when your set ups do show themselves.
Losing positions are a huge part of trading, so is patience. Don't get caught up in your winners or you'll end up chasing profits that aren't there when makers are quiet.

Markets for me have been very quiet this month so far and therefore a lot of patience has been executed, a huge skill you need to master if you wish to become a consistent trader.
I've been distracting myself with @wearegaia, which is essentially a conscious streaming network. It is packed with documentaries that will seriously open your eyes on a vast array of subjects and start you thinking in a much more present, unique way... Unlike 90% of the population who are purely caught up in their own tiny existence and only read main stream media/social media to form opinions on global issues.
Strongly advise signing up and checking it out.
My favourite series to date is 'Missing Links' that uses evidence and facts to explore deep truths of our origin, history, destiny and fate.

January was good however I feel it could've been better. My main aim coming into 2017 was 'FOCUS'. Unquestionable focus.
Some times all the motivational quotes, videos, books in the world can't convert motivation into execution. It needs to be more than that. You need to really feel ready and want to commit 100% of everything you've got towards your goals, saying it is never enough.
I spent tonight reviewing my past 6 weeks (ASR on life not just trading) breaking down both the good and the bad in detail. I then broke these down into bullet points and developed simple action points of what I need to do different ongoing.
Keeping them simple means I can refer back to these everyday, reminding myself. It also keeps everything measurable so when I look back in a further 6 weeks I can simply state, was this achieved? Yes or No?
It's time to kick this focus into full drive, stop fucking around and push 2017 into a new level.
'To get ahead you've got to make sacrifices, fuck it, that's just how hungry my appetite is'

Every damn morning 👨🏽💻
Stay focused, stay consistent and keep fucking going.
Lots of DMs asking about January's results, still have a trade running so waiting for that to close to lock in the results.
+11.5% locked in with a further +2% running as EURGBP finally dropping again. Have been in this trade since the 18th Jan and it has definitely tested my patience 😂🙌🏼
Will confirm once all January trades closed out, nice start to the year however 🙏🏼

Been away on business for a couple of days.
This week has been packed full of high impact news so trading has been very quiet. Took 1 position on Monday, have seen some nice positions aligning however avoided due to so much news.
Capital preservation is a massive factor of becoming consistent and if you're trading just before high impact news you will start to lose the edge your strategy has over the market.
NFP tomorrow, stay safe 🇺🇸

Book collection is growing 📚
Completed my goal of reading 3 books in January with 50 minutes to spare last night.
The main reasoning for setting this target after failing my 2 books a month rule in December 2016 was to hold myself accountable for the failure.
In December I lost my daily reading habit so to ensure I started 2017 with this habit reinstated I challenged myself with 3 books.
That's a shit ton of reading (on top of everything I already do) and to be honest it took any enjoyment away from it.
Going forward I will just be sticking to daily reading (not setting book per month goals) to ensure don't find myself rushing through a book just to get it finished.
The next book is 'Tools of Titans', Tim Ferris. Starting from now I'll be posting round up summaries after each book I've read up on here to give anyone interested a brief insight 🙏🏼 #toolsoftitans

A question I get asked a ton is around how do I manage to day trade full time and still hold down a job/co-run a successful wealth management business.
Honestly it hasn't been easy and it's still a struggle now to find the right balance. I am an inherently lazy person but have always had a deep hatred of stagnation.
I thrive off constant improvement/forward momentum and pushing through anything that could be seen as a boundary. It's what pushes me to go on in the shit times when I'm running on 4 consecutive nights of 3 hours sleep (coffee helps also).
If you're in a similar situation you will start to learn the real value of your time and start to sacrifice in other areas that you no longer hold on as high value (partying, playing fucking phone games, watching 3 hours of TV a day etc). You start to realise how much time we truly have in a day to be productive towards the goals we set ourselves.
Start managing your time more effectively, stop watching Netflix and start watching documentaries that open your eyes to how the world really works, nutrition, spirituality, anything that will expand your knowledge and get you thinking on a higher level.
Here's a practical experiment for anyone who's excuse is around not having enough time;
For the remainder of the week, the next 3 nights write down exactly what you have done between 8-10pm (or 9-11pm).
On Friday look at this list and ask yourself, is whatever you did in those two hours worth sacrificing to do something aligned with your higher values? Wether that be reading, writing, exercising, learning a skill, work on building a social media page etc.
We've all got enough hours in the day, it's all down to how we manage them 🙏🏼

Getting an early start on my ASR, taking advantage of the beautiful weather and getting some use of my balcony 🙌🏼
Took an unnecessary risk on Monday/Tuesday with a trade choice however the result would've still been the same. Solid week apart from that.
4 trades taken for +1% (with one still open and in profit), still has the potential for a good week.
The %'s are irrelevant to me, the focus is more on asking did I perform to maximum potential.
Also it is very important to stress that from your ASR the lessons you learn (from both winning and losing trades) you should backtest like a savage before making changes to your strategies and approach. One or two trades are not enough to start mixing things up.
Learn from your ASR, then backtest your findings to test its relevant over the long term and not to a small batch of trades.
Hope you've all had a prosperous week 🙏🏼

Favourite trade of 2017 so far;
GBPCAD +2.9% in 36 hours 🤑
Beautiful clean price action showing a break and retest for an IPM set up.
Obvious entry and obvious profit target. Ton of confluence behind this trade.
This is why we have to be patient to pluck high probability set ups like this out of the market 🙏🏼

In December I posted I would read 3 books a month in 2017 if I failed to read my goal of 2 a month in December.
I failed, I lost focus.
A couple days ago I finished my first 2 books of January, this is my third ☝🏼
1. Hold yourself accountable. You are literally 100% in control of where you're going and at what speed. There is no one to blame but yourself if you don't hit targets/goal.
If you are blaming other people, your situation you need to s tart calling yourself on your own weak ass excuses and start taking action towards bettering yourself vs complaining and blaming.
2. Do what you set out to do and if you don't set yourself repercussions (in before I'm reading 4 books every month of 2018 😂) so you don't fail something again.
For anyone interested I'm only just over 100 pages in but this is potentially one my favourite books to date and in terms of biographies I'd say it's definitely challenging Total Recall - A Schwarzenegger 🙏🏼

Something magical about being up getting shit done before most people are even awake, been up 'working' since 5.20am.
Hear all the time, 'I'm not a morning person, I couldn't run on 5 hours sleep'. I most definitely was a night owl and always struggled with early mornings however when I started trading I never even thought about it, I just did it. It was a must.
Let's do the math; 5hrs vs 8hrs sleep each night over 5 days of the week.
That's 15 extra hours each week and this isn't taking productivity into account.
If you're excited, passionate about something you're just starting to get into, doesn't 15 extra hours a week sound fucking great? 😂
Just some food for thought, some sacrifices are a must. What are your musts?
Starting Monday @5.30 AM with warm lemon water and a shot of wheatgrass; what is life coming to 😂
Has to be the first time since I started trading that I haven't been sat here with a delicious black coffee.
HELL NO am I giving coffee up just having a break from caffeine/stims until the end of the week.
I will be dropping all caffeine for the foreseeable apart from black coffee. No more pre workouts or energy drinks as I move away from anything chemical filled.
Caught a nice move on AUDJPY last night, taking down short. Approaching +2% currently, targeting +4.7% 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼
Had a good week last week but left a shit ton of money on the table, this is why we do ASR. Learn from our winners and our losers.
The more you immerse yourself in the market the more in tune I find you become, pushing yourself into the 'zone', effortlessly executing your plan with precision. 🙏🏼
That said, love what @irekpiekarski came up with in this AM's webinar, essentially his advise was to chill out and go with the flow. Remove the stress from your trading to remove emotion 🙌🏼
Will do a breakdown of my last weeks results in an IG snap story tonight.

1st day of post cleanse - 2 vegetable juices this AM and first food intake c2pm with a delicious bowl of fruit (easy on the stomach).
Had a ton of DMs asking about juice cleanse, am I crazy? Etc etc...
This all comes back to goal setting.
A goal of mine has always been to have as healthy of a lifestyle as possible. 2016 Q4 I put in some crazy dedication to trading, living on caffeine and unbothered about my diet.
Needless to say a focus of 2017 was a healthier lifestyle and from that I then broke down this goal into smaller short term goals with this being my first 'bitesize' goal for January.
Essentially this is the first step towards the longer term goal.
Perfect example of setting goals, breaking them down and executing.
Happy Sunday, hope you're all preparing for the coming week 🙏🏼

Trading from a hotel room on my phones personal hotspot because the wifi is atrocious.
In London for a 2 day conference, now I'm a fully qualified Financial Planner I have to meet a certain amount of CPD (structured learning) per year. These events are very interesting, mixing with your peers, meeting fund managers from numerous huge providers managing billion dollar funds.
This morning we have a talk by Sir Clive Woodward which I'm super pumped for as never heard him speak before. We then split off into masterclass sessions.
A word on consistency; I could've easily not bothered getting up for London session, not doing my analysis last night especially when wifi wasn't working and numerous other excuses.
It's simple but we are what we consistently do. 'It's not what we do once - it's what we do once a day, day in and day out, every day. That's what brings lasting change into our lives'.
Commit to your craft, commit to yourself and strive for consistent progress 🙏🏼

Been prepping for a 5 day juice cleanse last couple of days and finally starting tomorrow.
It will include;
👉🏼25 vegetable juices
👉🏼Psyllium husk daily
👉🏼10kg of Epsom Salts (bathe in)
👉🏼Natural Probiotics daily
👉🏼Body scrub daily
I usually do this 2x a year minimum to detox my body, clear all the shit out and 'reboot my system'.
On a different note, I've been reading a lot into the benefits of fasting recently, over the past 12 months I've been fasting 90% of mornings until c12/1PM and have noticed many benefits; increased focus/energy, more productivity, becoming leaner without being strict on my diet, very rarely have stomach issues etc.
Going to be throwing a 72 hour fast in every quarter (not a juice cleanse) to reboot my immune system and flush out any shit within. So many benefits and studies behind fasting, google it if it's something that interests you 👌🏼
The most important part IMO is have a plan for post your juice cleanse, if you go straight back into your old ways (if you have an unhealthy lifestyle) then what's the fucking point? It's a great way to put you into a healthier lifestyle but make sure to stick with it after, introduce different food groups back in slowly.
Wish me luck 😂

Weekly to do list done ✅
Taking it back to where it all begun and getting stuck back into Active Trader Season 3 & 4 tonight.
When people say trading is all luck or easy 😂 the amount of hours in the last 11 months I've put into learning and growing is probably more than you've spent in that shit job you hate, that's on top of co-running a successful family business.
Now is the time to pull your fingers out and start working towards something rather than watching the people who are doing and justifying why they're ahead of you.
We all have the same hours in a day, access to the same information, the rest is down to us 🤔

Wrapped up the first week of trading in 2017;
3x trades, total = +2.5% profit.
It doesn't sound a lot but do that each week you're looking at +10% a month.
In a year that's +120%.
Include compounding and that's now at +213.84%.
My results sky rocketed when I stopped taking every trade I could find and started applying a filter, only taking the very best.
One of the most common issues with people's trading journeys is that they are infatuated with the potential gain of a trade and completely dismiss the risk.
Final words of the week:
Stay patient and execute flawlessly 💎
Now time to crack this little fucker (Rubix cube) 😂
1 93 hours ago
If you're going to try something, learn how to do it rather than just 'giving it a go'. It'll either take you 100x as long or you'll lose interest and give up.
I've never tried to solve a rubix cube however after watching the film Snowden over Christmas I was intrigued to have a go. Most people's response is 'I never managed to solve that/you'll be playing with that for months'.
Why would you not learn the strategy behind it and then experiment?
Same with all aspects in life, be willing to learn before you start to experiment. Learn from others who have solved your 'puzzle' and you'll figure it out a fuck load quicker (& save a shit load of money in trading).
Don't be afraid to invest in your future, to pay for education. If not prepared to lose a lot more money from trail or error and take a lot longer to really master any skill. We all start at the beginning at some point 🤓

With social media in our present day world, now, more than ever you only see a successful persons public glories. Very rarely can you gain a full understanding of the sacrifices they have made in private to get to the position they are currently in.
It's easy to be good at something BUT if you want to be GREAT, the BEST, you will have to make countless sacrifices. You will have to be selfish. You will have to be ruthless on yourself and extremely self critical.
If you're worried about becoming good at something, up your standards and start figuring out how the fuck you become the best. Why aim for anything else?
Don't be afraid to sacrifice this year, to be selfish, to piss some people off on the way - figure out what you want, how to get there and ignore all the noise around you until you have it 💎
