I’d like to introduce myself and my consistent and profitable manually-traded strategy, and to learn as much as you’d like to learn about my background and experience…
Outside the Box - Ichimoku Scalping (Multi-confirmation & Probability based)
I have been quite transparent and communicative on other Forex Forums, social media, and Social trading sites about my trading and my personal life, if you would like to dig for more information… just google “outside the box hk”
I have surpassed the tipping point in my professional fund management career, with sufficient trading income and Assets Under Management now to support my life and family entirely by trading. This achievement has been a labor of love since 2004, as my first profession was as a Mathematics Teacher and Professor. Since 2016 I have been trading full time and building my track record and trading skills. Devouring all the videos, books, and first-hand testimonies I could from successful traders.
Having done extensive training in quantitative modeling and predictive statistics this has led to great success now in my trading. My interest was drawn by trading strategies from phenomenal traders such as: Ed Thorpe, Joe Lewis, Bruce Kovner, Michael Platt, and the lesser-well-known Jimmy Balodimas. From this research I gradually developed a multi-confirmation, day trading, probability-based edge/strategy.
High probability TimeFrame Synching w/ MACD, Stochastic, RSI, and the Ichimoku Cloud indicator as well as understanding market behavior in each session, market makers strategies, and momentum/flow. Focus is on “mean reversion” and “trend following” indicators.
Candlestick Patterns for double or triple confirmation for entries and exits. Price action (velocity of change and shape) with five main currency pairs: AUDUSD, NZDUSD, GBPUSD, GBPAUD, USDJPY
Risk Management of Strategy
Stop losses only used during risk events and times of uncertainty. Mental stop loss will be activated after 100 to 120 pips. Only on small positions will I rarely allow a loss over 125 pips. Never to exceed 5% loss on any single trade. Once drawdown from All time equity high over 10% or one trade reaches 5% loss I will hedge or scale out.
If drawdown from equity high surpasses 15%, position sizing will decrease until a recovery is well underway. Maximum drawdown is 20%.
This risk management allows my volume/position sizing to be maxmised, determined by: hit rate, average win, average loss, and profit generated over the 18 months since inception. The Kelly Capital Growth Investment Strategy also uses this statistical method of growing capital at higher rates.
Total open exposure of all trades is maximum 1 lot per $10,000 master account balance. 400:1 leverage.
I scale into positions with a basket of trades when the setup is more favorable. The profit target is usually 0.3% to 0.5% (or 10-15 pips), but I judge sentiment at the time.
