Traders and psychology with Ivan Chen

Traders and psychology with Ivan Chen

Ivan Chen has been in the trading industry for 6years and all he wants to do is provide for his family. When asked what he wants to be remembered for in the industry—Ivan responded with a laughing emoji saying, “Just another human being as long as I can provide for my family, that is all.”

Ivan’s elementary lifestyle is one to absorb, He’s by far one of the most positive traders I’ve ever come across. I asked him, “What are your trading aspirations? I know many trade for “financial freedom” but what happens when that’s achieved? What do you plan on doing with trading?”, You won’t believe his response. “I will trade wherever there’s WIFI and enjoy the world. Life is short”, Chen mutters. That alone really revealed the kind of trader Chen is. A remarkable one!

In addition, he believes in simplicity. Ivan has chosen to be anonymous as he tells Lazyluchi: “I’m not comfortable sharing my pictures.” Every trader out there can definitely learn something from Ivan. As he has a completely different view of the markets. Let’s meet this prodigious character, shall we?

Traders and psychology with Joe Adjei

Joe trader is Joshua Adjei. He is born December 22nd, 1993 in Ghana. Joe’s a forex trader and a graduate of the University of Ghana. “I read psychology and information studies”. Joe adds.. [Muttering] “My trading journey started after school. I have been in the industry for 6 years now and have been consistent for 3 years—A friend ( introduced by, kojoforex and we actually studied together. But, he guided me more) taught me forex. When I trade, I mostly work with high probability zones so: I maximize on direction biases.

In addition, I utilize my lot size by adding to positions in pullbacks because.. I always split my lot sizes. [Joe continues] My trade account is a little above half a million in total. There’s this one time [chuckles] I lost like 14k dollars in a single position and made 42k in a single trading day.

Asides trading, I’m more about acquiring properties lands and buildings. That’s where my money really is”.. 

Traders and psychology with Veetaedo

Traders and psychology with Veetaedo

Veetaedo isn’t the chatty kind of trader but is willing to let us have an insight of his style of trading. When asked about the media, this is what he had to say, “Social media helps you connect with people from different countries and it is easier to connect with these people through this platform. Using the media, I have changed lots of people’s lives with forex and I have curbed the 9-5 struggle. Because these guys from Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa now have a means of livelihood by trading forex”. Well, I actually never got his trading plan. Funny here’s why.. 

“I will rather not disclose my trading plan”. I’ll just say this though, I don’t trade according to how much I will make from a certain strategy but, how much I trade according to my strategy. My go to is: most definitely synthetic indices. I trade the vix75 mostly because I feel it’s more profitable.
