"Risk management, specializatiom and a deep understanding of statistics is all that a trader needs. My mission is to make traders understand the reality of the financial markets from a risk perspective."

I'm Niclas and I believe anyone can become successfull in trading.

I will be honest with you: there are no shortcuts for succes with trading.

If you don't have the willingness to change and you're not open to learn, then there's no hope. But if you want to achieve true mastery over yourself and gain financial freedom, you can definitely do it! It depends on your mindset and engagement, nothing else.

My story...

I wanted to study and then get a good paying and safe job. The change of mind came when I travelled the world for the first time and realized that travelling is what I wanted to do more of. I needed money to get out of Germany again.

When I first got my hands on trading, I burned my fingers. Not just the first time, a dozen of times. I have been studying diligently but despite all the efforts, computer screens and trading plans the market kept humbling me.

I always had the feeling that "the market" was not good to me. But in reality, there were patterns of self-sabotage in my mind. See the picture below.

Over the many years of trading the markets, I saw the things that made sense to me, used the knowledge that I got from various coaches and adapted it to my needs. I'm consistent in my approach, even if markets change.

My current lifestyle makes me able to travel again and I'm currently happily situated in Bangkok.

At the end of the day, trading should make your life better, get you out of the 8-hour-work-week and give you a great risk/reward, also on your time.

Why do I tell you all of this?

I tried many things in trading, I've been sitting on the computer screen 10 hours per day without results. I spent more than 15,000 hours on researching trading systems and active trading. I did all of this while not being able to see the truth in front of my eyes: probabilities, statistics, repeating but changing patterns, opportunities and risks, simple as that.

After all, I'm happy, that I set forth on a road full of deep lections about myself, discipline, self-control and an abundance of important humiliating experiences. I had to start all over again many times with nothing in my hands, but there was always a way out.

I thank you for taking your time to read my story. If you are interested in learning the markets as they are, to correctly understand where opportunity is and where not, then let's take action together.
