What and why
As a context price action trader, I speculate on whether a price in a currency pairing, commodity, index, stock or ETF will rise or fall.
The Slow Trader fund is for friends and family. It allows them the opportunity to access an intraday traded fund, held in trust.
Why an opportunity, and why intraday trading is not possible for most people:
- Firstly, such traded funds are not readily available. Moreover, expert (and hopefully successful) short-term traders charge a lot in fees.
- Secondly, this form of trading is a difficult skill to master. It takes several years for a trader to graduate from the ‘beginner’ level, through ‘intermediate’, to ‘expert’. And, ‘expert’ is where we find all the reward. In other words, short-term trading, in contradiction to its name, takes a long time to learn.
- Finally, learning the intraday and day trading skills is often, through the beginner and intermediate stages, financially penalising.
From the intraday charts, the fund trades long and short across a wide range of instruments but with particular concentration on currency pairings.
Based on my average reward/risk, win ratio per cent, and on the per cent of account balance risked consistently on each trade my strategy has zero risk-of-ruin criteria.
My goal is, firstly, the protection of the fund and, secondly, its compounded increase.
