Hi ladies and gents, RKay here.
Thanks for visiting my forex blog and I hope you find the information here useful in  your quest to make to make money trading forex. If you wan’t to know a bit about me well… I do have a bit of interesting story to tell.


I’m Not A Professional Forex Trader

First up, well, I’m not a professional forex trader, I do not trade forex for a living, nor do I trade a million dollar forex account. I still have my day job with a love and hate kind of relationship.

But… I have made a ton of money and lost a ton of money trading forex than most of you reading this right now and I am still not there yet.


Some of you dream of making only $2,000 a month in forex trading and you’d be happy. I’ve made $3,000 to $10,000 profits many times in a single day of trading  and  you’d think I would be happy with that, right?

Well…that’s kinda funny because tell you what? I wasn’t happy with that.

There were days were I was making more money in a single day of trading than  what I am earning in a month in my day job, but I was not satisfied.

Let me give you a few examples of what I’m talking about here:

Forex Trading

Forex Trading Online

I’ve lost Heaps Too…(by the way…typo below on the “loosing”…it should be “losing”)

Online Forex Trading


The Big Million Dollar Question Is: why wasn’t I happy with what I was getting?

Answer: I wanted to be so freaking rich overnight (and beat Bruce Kovner or some Rich Wall Street Billionaire (you know this one is a joke)

Greed, Fear, You Name It…

I’ve Achieved Forex Success Only To Be Humbled By Greed, Fear, You Name It…

  • You talk about making$2,000, $5,000, $8,000, $10,000 and $15,000 in forex profits in one day, I’ve done that.
  • You talk about losing $2000, $5000, $8,000 or $10,000 in one day of trading, I’ve done that.
  • You talk about blowing up how many live trading accounts, I’ve done that and I know what it feels like cuz I’ve ridden the highs and lows of live forex trading in my own scale and capacity.
  • You talk about taking a $3,000 trading account to $8,000 and blowing it up after 3 months, I did that… Or taking a $8,000 live account to $22,000 within 2 months and blowing it up within one week, I’ve done that.

I’m not telling this to brag. That’s my story.

Am I A Successful Trader?

Nope…not yet…I still have my trading demons to fight with and I don’t think I have won the battle yet. I’m still grinding daily in my day job.

I have seen and tasted success in forex trading  but being a high risk trader, I’ve made a lot and  lost a  lot just like Fred…But I’m not ready to quit forex trading yet.

I’ll admit,  I do have one big problem when it comes to forex trading: my mindset is not right.

Here’s why.

I do the things I know I’m not supposed to do when I’m making a lot of money or losing a lot of money.

If you’ve never traded forex, you will never know what I’m talking about here.

You see, demo trading is really different from live trading. When real money (your money) is on the line…you tend to act and think very differently. In other words you become a different “animal” as the saying goes.

Only after you’ve crashed then you’ll come to your senses and  you’d realize that you should not have done what you did. But its too late.

When you trade forex with live  money, this is what happens.

One bad thing about me is that I really don’t have fear of losing money. Maybe because I know that If I lose a forex trading account, I can fund it again and trade??? I’m really not sure.

I guess that’s one thing good about me but it can also be really bad thing too.


Well, because I don’t have any fear, I tend to take huge risks and sometimes those huge risks I take tend to pay off big time. I make huge profits.

And guess what happens next?

I think I’m invincible…my winning runs will continue… So I continue to take huge trading risks after I have really BIG wins.


I wanted to make MORE money.

So usually, my greatest periods of losing happens right after I’ve had big wins. And those big trading loses happen on just a few handful of high risk trades and then my forex trading account is really in a VERY SORRY STATE.

It is the mentality of trying to get rich quick overnight  that is my greatest weakness and should there come a time when I really change from that habit, that would be the day I move forward in my trading.

So essentially, that means that I fail in my forex money management rules.

It is not my trading systems that fail me. Its not that I don’t know forex money management. It goes back to what I said above about mindset.

Believe me, the price action forex trading strategies I use are really solid and this is not based on anything else but this-their risk:reward ratios are really excellent.

It is not impossible to get good home run trades where the risk:reward is like 1:10 and above with these price action trading systems I use.


My Wife Says She’ll Kill Me If I…

wife warns about forex trading

Well, to be quite honest, she has never said that…she is a really good woman.

She has watched me how many times blow up thousands of dollars of forex trading profits up in smoke time after time.

And each time, I promise her I’m going to be different next time…the next time comes around and I do the same thing…again.

Then I fund my forex trading account and I tell her, this time, I’m going to be different. But I’m the same old me again.

Sometimes I feel that I’m like a reckless gambler that gives away my wins just too soon and not enjoy it.

You know what I have found after all this time?

I’m my own worst enemy in forex trading. Greed is my biggest downfall and this is what I tend to do:

  • I tend to risk too much in on a few single trades that I think would be extremely profitable.
  • and when that single trade goes wrong, it wipes out my entire profits that I may have worked so hard to accumulate over many months.

Don’t Trust Me…Believe In Yourself

From these, I’ve learnt a thing or two about forex trading so take my ideas and advice with a grain of salt cuz I’m not a pro forex trader…

I still have my day job to keep paying the bills as well (which I’m guessing, most of you are in the same boat). I cannot pretend to be somebody I’m not.

Forex Trading is something I do on the sideline.

So if anything on my forex website makes sense, accept it, if you think it is bullshit, so be it.

This website is my avenue where I can rant about things like forex trading strategies, indicators, articles, tips and tricks and what I have learnt which I believe can help you.

I may write about many other forex trading strategies, systems and indicators on this site but that does not mean I will use them or I have used them in the past.

My Trading Style

I’m a 100% price action trader.

My trading relies on trendlines, support and resistance, candlesticks, price patterns.

These Price Action Trading Strategies I use are really solid trading strategies.

If you want to know how I trade, then just subscribe to my free forex signals below:

If you are new forex trader and want to learn about price action trading, there are many price action trading courses you can buy or you can get my free forex price action trading course and you don’t have to spend any money at all.


Price Action Trading Strategies I  Use

  1. Trendline Trading Strategy
  2. Trendline Breakout Strategy
  3. Broken trendline Breakout And Re-test strategy
  4. Support and Resistance Trading Strategy
  5. Diagonal Price Channel Trading Strategy
  6. Inside Bar Trading Strategy

And I apply these trading techniques to the above forex trading strategies:

  1. multiple timeframe trading
  2. patterns with pattern (advanced multiple timeframe trading)
  3. top 10 reversal candlestick patterns (the trigger to buy or sell)


Want To Learn To Use These Strategies?

Well, just follow my  forex trading signals. Every forex trading signal/setup can have any one of the forex trading strategies above in action.

You will get notified days in advance what kind of price action trading setup is happening and if you know these forex trading strategies above, you can then trade those setups.

I post regular weekly or daily forex trading signals and trading setups based on price action trading.

If you have been following it, you’ll see what I mean and you’ll pick out what type of trading strategies I use based on the trading setups I post regularly.

I spend more hours staring at MT4 Charts Than at My wife… (Not a joke, just stating the obvious).

Note also that there are many forex trading strategies and systems available on this site just so that you can have a lot of options to choose whatever trading systems that fits your personality.

But remember that I do not use all these trading systems. That once that I use are mentioned above.

Don’t Be Surprised If…

I do have have a keen interest in business and economy, politics, religion and  the world events that are happening around us.

I also don’t believe everything I hear or see on TV or any media outlets. I do take everything with a grain of salt.  Call me a conspiracy theorist.

So I’m just warning you, there will be times when I will write posts about such topics but written in the overall context of investing/trading etc and these may not sound like something relating to forex trading which this blog is really about.

But hey, you can’t crucify me for that, can you? As I have said, this is a blog where I can “rant” so you have to put up with that.

I’m just warning you.

The Secret To Forex Trading Success

If you want to be a better forex trader than me, then learn from what I do wrong and do the exact opposite.

Learn from what many forex traders do wrong and fail and do the exact opposite.

What do many forex traders to wrong?

  • take huge trading risks
  • trading too much (overtrading)
  • not following money management rules.
  • revenge trading
  • etc

It is not rocket science to figure that one out…Its simple as that.

But you know what the problem is? It is much easier said than done…believe me.

The day I quit my job that currently funds my crazy forex trading exploits then I will let you know.

Right now, that job is what funds my forex trading.

As Trader Jack Pointed Out

You may spot spelling mistakes etc…

Fact be known, I’m not writing and blogging in here to win a literary award in English language.

So if you spot a spelling or whatever mistake, I hope that that mistake is not so huge as to confuse the heck out of you to understand that information that is being presented.


Trading Products

There will be times when I will recommend products that I’ve used myself so you can benefit from them as well.

These my include:

  • trading books,
  • software
  • trading education
  • etc.


Everything on this forex website is for educational purposes only and should not be taken as an investment advice.

If you don’t know what that statement means, then its this- I don’t want to get sued by anyone including you reading this right now.


This is just my forex blog where I can rant about everything forex trading related under then sun.

So…If you decide to use the forex trading strategies , price action trading course, the forex trading signals,  and any tips and tricks you learn in here to start trading forex then know that that is your responsibility and I cannot tell you how successful or unsuccessful you will be when you do that.

Sounds fair, right?

Oh, that’s my story in short by the way…in case you are interested

Many profitable pips to you and thanks for visiting.

  1. Hi RKay,

    I found your site by accident and I must tell you that your course is the only one I found very useful, explained in plain English which can be understood by anyone. First of all let me introduce myself. I am Pradeep from Sri Lanka and a professional banker got into Forex Trading online 1 year back.

    As you have said, I have dealt with this subject trying to learn things and master candle stick patterns and so forth. However, there were lot of gaps which I was not able to understand but with your free course, I was able to learn things and I am very happy about it.

    I never wanted to make trading like a casino gamble and I wanted to learn the finer points and I was really struggling to learn the tricks of the trade until I found your course. With most of my doubts cleared, I have few more things which I need to check with you. I never wanted to put big money into this and I wanted to test the waters with $20 and trade do trades in Initially I started with a Demo Account and then moved into a real account and then and their I realized that the psychology changed as soon as you started trading with your own money. From then onwards I never wanted to use a demo account. With 20$ in my account I have been dealing well. Sometimes I have lost deals while sometimes I have won and gain lot of experience.

    However, since late I have realized that the main reason for me to lose my trades was that I found out that when I execute a trade, the price the trade is executed is totally different from the price I expected. Is this because the spread they offer? In addition would like to request you to let small timers like us some recommendations as to who are the best brokers who will offer less spread for small timers like us.


    1. Thanks for the comment!
      Yes, spread costs will impact where you get filled especially if spreads widen during new events.
      I use Oanada for all my FX and CFD trading. I can’t really comment on other brokers.

  2. Hi!
    I salute you RKay for your unselfish character and generosity for imparting your accumulated knowledge, tips and experiences in forex trading. I am a newbie, still learning and have many many more to know. I came to know your site while browsing the internet for some infotech about trading. I am very glad to find yours and I’m very much thankful for it! I will to the best that I can to conquer myself once I will be on the live account. At the moment, I’m on a demo account and still applying what I’ve learned and trying to see what strategy/ies will work for me.

    1. Thanks for the words! Keep in mind while you look at the many strategies on the blog, (including my own way of trading the weekly setups), that you may be tempted to complicate things. Don’t. Manage your risks, don’t take small profits while letting losers grow.

  3. thank you very much for you sir .. this is the best site i have ever seen. your learning method quite simple, easy to follow and understand. may triple gems bless you. once again thank you very much sir..

  4. I stumped upon your website while I was searching for order flow trading. That is the final missing point when I trade forex, now I understand how the price changes and market sentiment. Thanks for providing us a very informative website.

  5. So glad to find your site RKay !! After blowing so many live-accounts by all the mistakes you mentioned and using too much indis, I stopped trading for 4 months.
    Now I can start all over again with your price action teaching and get rid of 500 indis.
    MTF trading combined with trendline trading, checking s + r levels can ONLY win 🙂
    By the way: Did you know that you could make a ton of money with your level of trading using binary options? No tp, no sl, no trailing , just timing and the courage to get in.
    Spended years at the wrong trading sites with to many wannabe-traders, haters, and trolls, but now I left them all behind and clear my mind about trading, thanks to you !

    1. Thanks for the words. I have no interest in binary options to be honest. There are more than enough opportunities in Forex. Keep in mind that there is nothing magic about price action, patterns or trend lines. If anything, they provide a trader with a structured approach that many are lacking. Thanks again and glad you finally found us. 🙂

  6. Great site RKay! Clear, understandable and clear graphics and charts to understand!
    After 25 years in stocks and options I started Forex trading 2 years ago but had to refund my account many times, due to the same reasons as you described in your story, all so recognisable! Just came across your site last week and it so much more valuable then other sites and forex trading signal providers (they are all there to make money and nothing more). I really need to spend some more time going through some valuable strategies, started already with a few, hope some positive will come out.

    Thanks for sharing all your knowledge, appreciated!

    1. Thanks Paul really appreciate the comments. Would you help us and spread the word about the site? Feel free to share our URL to others who would benefit. Thank you again!

  7. I so much love this blog.Since I started reading your materials,it occurred to me that I know not much about forex.I thank you for your good work Rkay.I look forward to receiving your trading analysis and signals.Keep it up.

  8. You’re just superb!
    Your teachings are well elucidated in both the technical and emotional aspects of trading. Honestly you deserve an award.
    Your writing flows from your experience into this site. I’ve subscribed and would love to receive daily positions from you.
    I recently started testing day trading and I ‘ve been netting 400-500 pips. But am scared if my emotions will make me take profits at 400 in a real account.
    Please kindly start including the next day’s signals for day traders.
    If we get 60% win in month then we’re made.

  9. Hi RKay,

    This is an incredible website. It has tons of useful info, have been watching your signals and their reviews for a while. People like you must be applauded for providing this free of cost. I am a newbie, still learning how to trade. I have few questions for you, would greatly appreciate if you could answer them.

    (1) Any reason why you don’t trade vertical lines of support and resistance?
    (2) Some people talk about zones around support and resistance and reversal patterns forming in that zone. Is this correct? Does the reversal pattern need to touch the horizontal or vertical lines to be considered a reversal?
    (3) What steps must be followed to plot vertical lines? Is it the same as diagonal lines?


    1. Thanks for your comment.

      (1) I do trade vertical horizontal support and resistance levels but I do have some certain conditions where I look for to trade them. to explain it here would take a lot of space on this comment section which I don’t think is appropriate. I hope I can have the time to write up a post for it. No promise. If you look a previous “forex signals” I do post setups based on horizontal support and resistance levels.
      (2) support and resistance levels should be considered as “zones” and this is what I also strongly believe. Price does not necessarily go up and hit specific price and fall back…sometimes, It can, but there will be times when it will not. the opposite for support levels. THE IMPORTANT THING is knowing your REVERSAL SIGNALS…specifically your reversal candlestick patterns. Once price enters these zone” all you need to do and simplify your trading process is to wait and watch for these reversal candlestick patterns to form to take your trades. Don’t complicate things.
      (3) what IS SO OBVIOUS ON YOUR CHART???? those support and resistance levels/zones? Read the price action trading course…I believe I’ve explained this concept there.

  10. Hi RKay,

    I appreciate your blog and thank you for your time spent creating it, and also for straight forward and clear rendering.

    Like many of us I am working full time and price action is the best way for me to approach trading, but even if I could dream nice and be a full time trader I would definitely use price action strategies as they have best probabilities and RR ratios.

    I am also fighting with my demons and as you I am hopping one day I will tame them. It is still hope for us. 🙂


  11. After creating and testing hundreds of MT4 templates with thousands (around 5900 indicators I have tested ) my thinking is different Trading forex or stocks or commodity , all are one sided game.. opposite “PERSON” knows which cards you have but we don’t… ! if I am in ” MASS ” side I will be LOST.. but no body knows in which side they are until they lost… actually we don’t like small profits and we can not able make big profit.. means we stand till last penny but while we are losing money but when we are in profit either we exit the trade early or we wait till our profit convert in to big loss..

    1. Nilesh,

      The only way forex trading becomes a one side game is when you do not use your ‘TRADING EDGE”.

      Forex Trading loses are part of the “game”. Nobody escapes them. Any trader who goes into trading thinking about winning all the time is in for massive surprise. Whether you are on the “mass” side or the “minority” side is really irrelevant because you are using your trading system’s rules to buy/sell anyway and you cannot all the time get a 100% strike rate and on the same token, you cannot predict with a 100% accuracy if you are on the “mass side” or not.

      What’s important is making sure the loses are small compared to the profits made. It is the oversized trading loses that kill many forex trading accounts.

      Learning trading systems, indicators and all that is really EASY.

      But mastering the proper trading mindset for trading success is a very difficult thing.

      In my opinion, the amount of risk a trader takes in a trade is based on trading psychology. Every trader knows the essentials of good money management but guess what happens when their real money is on the line?

      All your risk management knowledge tends to go out the window….

  12. Your website is fabulous, the knowledge you shared is very precious especially the price action strategy which I’ve been learning it seriously for the last 1 year. But that’s not all, the most valuable part is when you share your experience both wins or losses and what psychology behind them.
    I’ve been doing trading for almost 2 years where the first year of my trading career was lived as fool as day trader.

    I began to move to swing trader style after visiting many websites that bring price action strategy and found out that day trading is really meaningless and just a waste of time and money. Unfortunately those sites charge some amount of dollars for membership fee which I personally not willing to pay it because I know there must be same knowledge I can get for free. So I just surf everywhere on internet and landing on your website.

    Thanks again for you. Hope you can achieve success in your trading career.

    1. Hi Buburay,

      pretty smart move on your part for avoiding paying for trading knowledge that can be found freely online (if you look hard enough).

      I almost paid $6000 when I was starting out for a homestudy trading course back when I was learning to trade but I had the same thought as you that “there must be some(same) information somewhere that I can get for free” so avoided paying for some information that I eventually learnt online by myself.

      A new trader on the block is REALLY VULNERABLE. They tend to believe a lot of ‘BULLSHIT” they read because they know nothing yet and secondly, they are so easily convinced to pull out their wallets and buy stuff that they don’t need (the next shiny object).

      Eventually, later, they will realize what was bought was not really needed or useful at all or does not work.

      Some beginner forex traders will still do those things even if I tell them not to do it. SOMETIMES, EXPERIENCE IS THE BEST TEACHER.

      Now, having said that, I would buy trading books or anything that I think that can help me. But anything that “seems too good to be true”, it most likely is, especially when it comes to forex.



  13. WOW. finally i had found one real forex site(already 3 sites in my pocket).. your writing is so much fun and easy to follow.. your method are quite simple and easy… keep writing mate.. hope you will earn millions one day.. my problem is also same as yours…. doing same mistake again and again. i take note of those mistakes but next time when i trade i never take a look at what i wrote..

    1. Hi Prabakaran

      thanks for visiting.

      Yeah, every forex trader has to learn to control the “inner demons”. Once you’ve gone past the stage of searching for that holy grail system or indicator, you’ll realize that you are your own worst enemy in forex trading. As the saying goes ” I’ve found the enemy, and its me!”



  14. Thank You for the prompt reply
    already subscribed to your signals and dissecting your article
    in my case the setup I use is mainly in the H1 timeframe:
    I wait for EMAs 11 & 33 to crossover to check for trend inversion
    then wait for a pullback to touch EMA 11 to enter but first I need to confirm with macd if it’s 0
    I trade only NY session (8:00AM to 2:00PM EST)
    I hope to catch a couple of 2:1 to 3:1 trades per week
    I hate retracements after I’m in profit.. Many of my trades end in breakeven because they retrace before reaching my profit taking goal. I can not trade thinking in a 1:1 risk/reward ratio.

    In your case I think it’s not greed as such.. maybe you are in a “profit channel” but once you break it the sky’s the limit for you

    I’ll follow you closely because a lot is still yet to be learned
    i also follow Walter Peters in Australia (Naked forex system)

    Thanks again

  15. Hi Rkay

    great info and effort on your part.. thanks for sharing
    I’ve been trading 1 year on demo with mixed results and my goal is to open real account once I double demo account (don’t know if this is good or bad)
    these are my questions:
    – what strategies you use the most and why? (does it depend on market conditions: trending ranging etc)
    – do you trade every pair or just focus on the majors? I mean for spreads higher than 6 pips is harder for intraday trading right?
    – what timeframes you trade the most and why?
    – any statistics regarding your trading methods which has been most solid/profitable?

    Thanks for the help

    1. Hi Mori,

      (1) what strategies I Use the most?
      Trendline Trading Strategy
      Trendline Breakout Strategy
      Broken trendline Breakout And Re-test strategy
      Support and Resistance Trading Strategy
      Diagonal Price Channel Trading Strategy
      Inside Bar Trading Strategy

      (2) all these strategies are for different market conditions based on PRICE ACTION.

      (3) I scan all currency pairs looking for the best price action trading setups based on those trading strategies given above so I trade pretty much everything I can see that has good risk:reward .

      Yes, some currency pairs have large spreads and with such, intraday trading like scalping is really pointless. Swing Trading will make sense with these kinds of currency pairs. With such, look at the long term setup and trade them based on them and that makes those large spreads become insignificant because you are aiming for 100+ pips profit.

      (4) Timeframe: prefer my entries on the 1hr Timeframe, 2ndly, 4hr timeframe and thirdly the daily. I prefer to get into a trade early. Read this article: . Thats what I use to get early trade entries. Why I prefer that 1hr timeframe? its just my preference.

      (5) Pretty hard to keep a detailed statistics because I’m not just using one strategy and I fail to keep a proper journal. the only statistic I can say is that all those strategies listed above are SOLID strategies, all those screenshots of some of the profits I’ve made from my trading and busted those accounts (because of my greed etc) are based on using these strategies.

      If you follow my forex trading signals, you’ll see what I’m talking about…these strategies work.


  16. that’s like me commenting saying hey Jack you talk big but you cant make any money lol. This guy is pointing out how much money RKay has made and lost when he haven’t made any himself yet. So jack why don’t you show us how much money you have made.

    1. Easy Lethal… 🙂
      I don’t think Jack meant any harm.
      Usually when I write, I just “flow” so its kinda hard to realize the spelling mistakes I’ve made until sometime later and I tend to fix them If I spot them. And ones that I don’t spot are still there.

  17. why is it that people like Jack who cant make any money point out your English error and make you look like a forex scam just because of one mistake…. This is hilarious people before talking shit look at your own bank you make no money so if you think this guy is a scam just fuckin move on no need to criticize. your main purpose is to learn forex nor English. The only reason you catch his error is because you understand what is he trying to say. other wise you wouldn’t even know what the heck he is even saying. so if anyone is going to come over here acting like jack the little twatt just suck on a bloody candlestick and shit out pips all day.

  18. “Loosing” 13,400 in one day?

    You can make 8,000 in one day however you have trouble using spellcheck?

    1. Hi Jack,

      I know I can’t win a English Language Award For this forex blog 🙂
      But I know 99.99% of traders who read will understand what I’m saying anyway.
      Thanks for the heads up.


      1. Hey, with that English would have done the wrinkles, I’m from Czech. English can not, but your style is clear and well and translator to help me.
        From your articles would be a great book. I’m glad I found them in the Czech Republic is the only forex beginning. Brouker just looking for people to earnings, but then one learns that it’s not just as simple.
        I am glad for the web Roman
