About me & my style of trading.
I am Dennis Buchholz, 41 years young and married with the most beautiful woman. I am a born German with residence in the heart of beautiful Spain. And yes, sure, I am a full-time trader! But it doesn’t mean that I am trading 24h a day! 3-5 trades a week, no more! The first trade ever was 15 years ago. It was stocks from a sinking telecommunications provider. Guess what, and I sold these stocks a few months later with a 500% profit. The telecommunications industry never , dies. Since then, I discovered trading to make real money. It was alongside my job as a computer scientist. Full-time trading I started in 2013.
In 2014 I finished the Forex course “Beat the Market Maker” by Steve Mauro. Knowing Steve has turned my world upside down.
Once I can accurately identify and quantify the average timing probabilities, there is far less of a tendency to prematurely cut out of a solid trade during an expected false move pullback. When the Market Makers hit the stops against my positions, I will then have this information to know not to cut out. Simple statistics can go a long way in overriding emotional tendencies during trading.
