    That is a really good example of how real trading works, most traders approach FOREX without having the guts to stomach such drowdowns which are normal if you play high R:R strategies and shows that you can be profitable with a 34% win ratio which look horrible at first sight. It just takes lot of discipline.
    Maybe she is even too conservative given the huge capital she has at her disposal, she seems to risk almost nothing per trade.
    Convince her to get interviewed, she can put a mask on if she doesn’t want to be recognizable!

      Hi Mark, Yes I’ll be doing my update on the 1 year anniversary in June. Sam will be emailing out about it by the beginning of June I would think.

      The lady qualifies as a professional due to her liquid assets and frequency of trades so she won’t be affected but I doubt her positions would be big enough relative to the size of her account to become a esma new margin issue even if she wasn’t…

    This is complete nonsense, its a demo account and this ‘mystery woman’ will never appear on Tip TV. She cant, she doesn’t even exist!

    This is a great story, just shows how being patient and letting your winners run and cutting your losses always pays.

    Bit puzzled though, she said she withdrew 32k from her trading account which is twice her annual salary, how did she manage to save enough for a 200k account on a 16k salary?

    Keep up the good work Charlie.

      Thanks Neville. It wasn’t from earned income but a bit too personal for me to answer that one!
