Awesome, you found my blog! This is where I share my adventures in the wonderful world of online trading.
My name is Chris and not so long ago I was a cubicle dweller with a shitty desk job. I was always interested in stocks and finance, but I never tried to actually trade them or play the markets.
Baby steps with demo account
Until I came across an ad that said that you could start trading with a demo account and play money. Out of boredom and curiosity I created an account and started dicking around with it.
It took me a couple of hours to find out how everything worked, but within a day I figured out the basics and I could place my first orders with play money.
I fell in love..
Safe to say that I had found a new addiction. From that moment on this game had me by the balls. I read everything I could about trading and investing. I was like a sponge. In the meantime I continued to trade with my demo account and I got better and better at it. Which obviously fueled the addiction.
My trading strategy
After many hours of trading with play money and experimenting with hundreds of methods, I slowly started developing my own trading strategy. I’m not going to claim that I reinvented the wheel, but the way I trade now is profitable for me.
Sold everything to become a full-time trader and world traveler
After I quit my job, I went a step further. I sold my house in The Netherlands (yes that’s where I’m from, so excuse my grammar mistakes) and almost all my stuff. Now everything I own fits in a carry-on backpack. Some clothing, my laptop with accessories and that’s it.
I don’t own any expensive stuff. No Lambos, no watches, no fancy clothes, no mansions and no boats.
I chose the freedom of minimalism and a nomadic lifestyle.
Don’t get me wrong; I still love the good things in life. I like single malt whisky, vintage wine, good food and of course traveling. So I spend my money on that, instead of buying more stuff.
Best decision ever! 🙂
Blog about online trading
When the market moves slowly, the life of a trader can be pretty boring. That’s the main reason I started this blog. And of course it’s also a great way to share my experiences with online trading to hopefully make you (and me!) a better trader.
Check out my trading strategies and guides and don’t hesitate to ask questions or comment.
