It’s about time we have a discussion on Forex Trading, but this is not your average Forex Trading discussion.
Some Forex traders may be unaware of how stop loss hunting and market manipulation is done by the smart money. Like many Forex traders, ex-stockbroker Djamal Adib experienced early losses which compelled him to study the inner workings of Forex trading, and how stop loss orders are hunted by the smart money.
Djamal spent four years pouring over thousands of charts patterns of different time periods and programmed his carefully back tested algorithms resulting in him winning an international Forex competition.
Djamal shares his enthusiasm and much wisdom of the opportunities and dangers of trading Forex and why you need an edge.
