My name is Matthew J. Slabosz and I’m an aspiring full-time forex retail trader.
My focus is on generating long-term consistent returns with minimal drawdown. I’m a systematic trader and I prefer operating with simple rule-based price action strategies and trading processes.
I specialize in forex trading using technical analysis, but I’m also very interested in stocks and crypto, and I experiment with discretionary trading from time to time.
This is not a get-rich-quick or marketing website. The content on this website is intended for committed retail traders who are extremely serious about mastering the craft of trading.
I am obsessed with trading psychology and determined to be the best I can possibly be. I’m in this for the long haul. And so the theme of this website is mostly focused on trading psychology (and forex).
But I also have some lessons on how to create your own indicators in PineScript, a bunch of free TradingView indicators and a public trading journal that I update weekly in addition to a number of other valuable resources.
I hope you enjoy your time here and that you find something valuable. I’m extremely passionate about trading and I look forward to sharing my journey, insights and creations with the trading community!
I was a musician and audio engineering student before I became a trader, but I had to quit due to an injury that developed into a chronic pain issue.
I did not have a professional background in finance when I first started, nor any financial education whatsoever, nor any personal mentors in the industry, nor any money for that matter… but for whatever reason, I suddenly and unexpectedly found myself obsessed with trading the financial markets.
I know what you are probably thinking, and you are not wrong to think it, but please hear me out!
I think I have an interesting story to tell, and I plan to share it all on this blog for whoever is interested – or crazy enough to join me – in this endeavor.
Maybe I can help you avoid some of the mistakes I’ve made and learn from some of the insights I’ve had over the past few years.
