    this is a really good video and even though I have been through a lot of trading education, both self and commercial, I felt i have learned a number of things from this video. Perhaps with the technique your describing; getting back to basics is the way to adjust my trading for much beter returns. Even though i never do it, i will hit subscribe like and share. thanks!

    Stevan- once again a nice video. You are pointing a way to me. I "know" so many strategies but never ever tested them. So this was a nice tutorial-simple as it was- to test any such theory. And once it has a good past history, it can become a real strategy..Keep up the good work.

  14. By far the best trading educational content available. keep up the good work.

I would also like to ask you what do you think are good traders yearly returns in the forex market. Of course its different from trader to trader but what is realistic in your opinion. thanks a lot

  16. What about corelation, when u have multiple set-ups that u trade on different pairs.. for example 2 USD majors on the GBP/USD and EUR/USD there is a set-up (same set-ups ( 2 double tops) , different set-ups [gartley and cypher]). Do you take both trades or just one of them?

    Thanks for your advice!
