My Strategy / FAQs

My Strategy

I only trade Indizes and ETFs. I prefer trading the German DAX. I trade DowJones, S&P500 and HangSeng as well. Mostly I don't trade with leverage but sometimes I open small positions with leverage 20. In that case my goal is to close these positions as soon as possible. My preferred market situation is when the markets move sidewards, that differs me from plenty of other traders. I mostly place long positions. I also try to make profit with long positions even when the markets slightly correct. My goal is not to finish every month in Green. I follow my strategy come what my and when a month is negative, so be it.

What is my goal?

I want to outperfom the markets over a long period of time. If I am not able to do so, you should not copy me but put your money in an MSCI-world ETF.

Risk management

Having a low risk score is nice but I don't really pay much attention to my risk. The risk score just measures the current volatility of my portfolio which means that in some volatil market situations my risk score goes up although I wouldn't call that risky trading. It belongs to the game and beating the market with a score of 3 or lower is not possible

How much money of my capital do I invest?

It depends on the market situation. When the markets reach new All-time Highs I trade with 50-60%, when the markets correct or even crash I invest much more. That can change quickly, there are phases I trade with 100%.

How much money should you copy me with?

I recommend to start with 500 USD, 1000 USD would be best. Adding small funds frequently (example: monthly) is recommended.

What is the best time to start copying?

Since nobody knows what the markets do tomorrow, it is hard to say. To minimize the risk one can invest in multiple steps, example: over the next 3 or 5 months.

How long should you copy me?

As long as possible, at least 6 months. An investment horizon of 2-5 years or even longer would be perfect.

What you should not do

Over the past I have seen hundreds of copiers who jumped in and as soon as the markets dropped a few percent, they left. You should trust your trader you copy and you should check your portfolio and my trades as seldom as possible. 

Thanks for copying,
