Hello C2 community!
There is a new futures strategy created for you to join. It contains my personal trend and swing trading approach which I also use in my strategy for IRA accounts. (https://collective2.com/details/116749021)
This is for people who want to gain much and fast but have the discipline and patience to stick through drawdowns.
First of all, why a new strategy?
I keep the other strategy going so it´s not because I want to restart or something. But I finally came to the conclusion that I have to adapt to the market´s needs if I want to actually have more than a hand full of customers on this plattform. The market says that high yielding future strategies are in stronger demand than very conservative ETF/stock strategies and I have to face that.
My trading is based on the futures markets anyways so there is no problem in realizing it.
What is the difference then?
The main difference is the risk and moneymanagement. While any one position in the IRA strategy usually takes 1-2% risk I will go with 5% risk per trade in the futures strategy. With the help of higher leverage using futures I can also enter some interesting short term setups that I can not effectively exploit in the IRA strategy.
Last but not least there is a difference in setup execution because futures are traded 23/5. Especially when it comes to Stoplosses this can make quite a difference.
Key Points of the strategy:
- trend and swing trading (holding overnight)
- trading ES, NG, CL, GC, HG, SI
- 5% risk per trade with preplanned SL
- at least 10% profit target per trade
- trading when there are opportunities, not to please subscribers. Usually 1-3 trades per week.
The first month is free of charge so you can join without additional risk. Or just subscribe and watch it live to get a feeling for my trading style. It´s up to you and you have nothing to lose.
Who is this guy Alexander?
I am 28y old, from Germany and trade the markets for 12 years with my own money (on my fathers broker account for the first 2 years). I started with investing in stocks in 2006/7 so of course I paid the learning fee to the market in 2008. After a 2y break I restarted investing with a value approach. This got the better of me in 2011. I studied at university from 2012-2016 and managed my investments part time. But the extremely long term approach of value investing didnt fit my personality. I started to learn daytrading with futures in 2015 and worked on my trading skills 40hs/week, keeping 20hs/week for my graduation. At first I started trading on a demo account. Just before the August crash in 2015 I migrated to real money trading and got another hard teaching. But since I applied strict risk management the damage was limited. Still, it was a very valuable lesson because I noticed that daytrading is the other extreme that doesnt fit my personality. I developed my personal trading style and made a killing in the next crash in Jan 2016.
In the following years I was focusing on controlling the risk and how to use moneymanagement to increase profits. I also dived into portfolio risk analysis because I wanted to find strategies or investment vehicles that fit well with my own trading.
All the best,
