The end of 2017 and the Christmas holidays have inevitably come and gone, and I get to enjoy a brief period of rest and relaxation during these days (currently in Kuala Lumpur, one of my favorite cities in the world). It has been an amazing year for me, mainly because after 3 years of hard work, we have finally launched my hedge fund (with an amazingly positive start) and now we are getting ready for 2018 (with two new CTA programs on the way).


I would like to take a moment to thank you for the kindness and great feedback you've given me during this past year, and at the same I want to wish you all the best in this next year to come.

I would also like to encourage enthusiastic traders to use more of your leisure time during 2018 to focus on your BIG trading breakthrough.

Simply make it your BEST trading year ever - period.

Use your time to think, research, backtest, and do market research. It will pay off.

Continue to do your homework diligently and keep in mind that your success in the markets depends on your readiness. You must be prepared as best as possible, because without doing so, it simply does not go well...

Once again, I wish you a lot of luck, success and health, rich gifting and good trades for both beginners and advanced traders. I will continue to provide you with new, insightful articles during the following year, in the meantime, I too will relax a few days and will prepare for the 2018 trading season... Let it all be generous!

Happy trading!
