Bio:
Forex is the quickest way to become rich. Forex is also the quickest way to become poor.

Loss of 10% requires a gain of 11.11% to recover
Loss of 20% requires a gain of 25% to recover
Loss of 30% requires a gain of 42.86% to recover
Loss of 40% requires a gain of 66.67% to recover
Loss of 50% requires a gain of 100% to recover.

The odds are stacked against everyone. Harder to gain than to lose (before considering broker commissions and VPS costs)

-----------------------------------------
FOR POSTERITY:

Worked hard since 2003. Started with one FT job, added two more JOBs (Just Over Broke).

Worked hard at three jobs since 2006. Averaged 80+ hours per week (some weeks I managed 110+ hours). Raced between jobs on a scooter, sometimes enduring 20 hour work days on occasion (my Personal Best was two weeks in a row, 8 hours one job, 12 hours at the other).

Slowed down late 2012. Lack of sleep caused me to suffer: fatigue, stress, sleeping difficulties, skin problems, and increased heart rate (constant adrenaline). I am working one job FT, but I keep the other two on a casual basis for an extra odd shift now and again.

2004 - 2012: Wasted perhaps $100k on seminar materials including: Dymphna Boholt, Carly Crutchfield, Massland, Daniel Kertscher, Rick Otton, Sharelord, and many others. I was hoping to learn something which would assist me to achieve financial freedom, but I have only spent lots of money and not attempted anything. Good materials though.

2006 - Wasted about $50,000: I attempted a vending machine business, but didn't try hard enough. Machines $40k (sold for $100), car $14k (sold for $4k).

2007 - Viva Properties stole $25k: "debenture-like" investment secured against property:
a) initial one-year investment was successful ($35k with 10% interest), withdrew $10k and reinvested interest;
b) second investment was six months and unsuccessful ($25k with 20% interest).
Many other investors lost money, some many times more.
The company went into administration, though not before the owners bought themselves nice places in good suburbs.

2008 economic crisis - I lost $32k playing CFDs. I funded my CMC Markets account with $4000, which I turned into $32,000 in one week (Monday to Friday) on the fall of the AUDUSD (that was a cinch!). Lost the whole amount on Friday afternoon within a couple of hours whilst I was at work. Ah, the power of leverage!

2009 - Lost almost $40k: Australian Home Based Business (AHBB) - $17k lay-betting software. Well, it did work. The only problem was I lost $9k twice in a row and that was my entire account!

2011 - Lost $60k sports betting: Aussie Rules match Port Adelaide vs Gold Coast Suns. Port were paying $1.05 at the start of the 4th quarter and they were 40 points ahead. GC had never won a game yet. GC won this match by a few points.

2013 - Lost over $120k. I sold my properties (three CBD studio apartments) and invested the money in some currency accounts. The currency accounts (YANEMA with IAMFX) worked for a month, then profits were lost and performance crashed, so I moved the money elsewhere. I found two HYIPs (High Yield Investment Programs - aka Ponzi Schemes) which seemed stable and recommended by many: Profitable Sunrise (EUR35,000) and ProForex Union (US$70,000). PS went offline after a month. PFU disappeared after two months.

Currently $77,000 in debt with credit cards (ANZ $14k + ANZ $4k + Westpac $14k + BankWest $45k). I used much of the money to fund my HYIP investments, thinking they were safe. No means to recover the money - the corresponding Russian bank says the money was taken out by ATM from PFU, and no one knows where PS has gone.

I will concentrate on forex because this is the quickest (and safest) way to make gains that I know (though property options / developments are a close second but I'm too scared to try).

Life of a Loser: I have no family life, no social life, live in a sharehouse dump, have no assets, no car (learner's permit). I have consistently focused 200% of my energy to acquiring financial freedom with three JOBs before I worry about anything else. I can definitely say, I am less than satisfied with the results I have achieved thus far (what results? I have nothing to show for the last ten years of my life except a large credit card debt!).

I am not happy, and I want to stop working altogether. I want to change my life radically - I am so sick of it. I truly believe forex is the answer.

Trading Style:
Purely automatic expert advisors. I have attempted manual trading, but my emotions and human error predispose me to losses.

I am a strong believer that all true manual systems are distinguishable, and therefore able to be fully automated. Therefore I seek not to learn manual trading, but to find a fully automatic expert advisor that is profitable.

40,000+ PIPS!

Now that is a milestone - for me anyway!

Many people say it is only a matter of time before a grid-martingale EA will fail. I hope to prove grid-martingale strategies can work long-term with conservative risk and optimisation!

BluePanther Yes he did. You can see my demo results at "Contest - BluePanther (continued)" (the contest account was continued in a second account after the contest ended). I would agree that it seems to work quite well, however, I wouldn't say it has "low drawdown" (as you can see in my account).
