I’m struggling with trading around my day job and although I have a strategy, I’m not confident in it. I never know when trade setups will occur. I need a process to follow so that I can gain consistency. Can you help?
Absolutely. My strategies are perfect for those with day jobs as the Price Reversion and Session Momentum setups typically occur between UK 07:00 and UK 08:00. When we’ve executed, as the strategies are mechanical you’re then free to walk away, heading to work without any worry.
There’s also no trade-management required which means you’ll finally know exactly when to be at the screen and won’t ever miss a trade again, decreasing stress and increasing consistency instantly.
I have a strategy but I’m not sure it really works. I’ve made some money here and there but I feel like my luck will run out soon.
I have no structure, no plan and no statistics to back up it’s performance and thus no confidence to execute, even when trades set up. Can you help?
It’s a common problem faced by many new traders; They may have a strategy in-place but they have no plan, no performance metrics, no statistical proof that the strategy provides edge and this means that overall they lack confidence, and confidence is critical.
If you’re lacking confidence you’re in trouble before you’ve even began, and this is before the inevitable losses that are to come if you’re trading a strategy that doesn’t work. In this situation you’re left guessing and ‘hoping’ that your strategy might work rather than knowing for sure that it does. In this situation you’re simply gambling, and we all know what happens to people who gamble… They lose all of their money.
This is exactly the problem that my strategies solve. When you join me in trading them you’ll not only receive in-detail strategy video courses that explain how and why they work, you’ll also receive my trade record showing every single trade provided by all four of the strategies as black and white proof of performance. These will allow you to look back and re-run all of the trades that each strategy has provided first-hand, showing exactly how profitable each strategy is in real-time.
With this proof in-hand , you’ll finally be able to trade with confidence from the off, again, solving the above problem entirely.
I was taught a strategy that works based on technical analysis, but I’ve realised that everyone applies this differently;
Everyone draws support and resistance zones in different places, everyone uses different timeframes, everyone draws trend-lines in different places… I’m completely lost. Can you help?
I’ve been there and I know first-hand how much of a nightmare it is to have to rely on hope without any structure in-place. If you’re relying on best-guesses and ‘reading’ the market – Without years and years of chart-time behind you at a minimum – Again, you’re simply gambling and blindly hoping that you’ll achieve profitability.
My strategies solve this problem as they’re built around a set of rules which remove the need to guess, predict or ‘read’ the market entirely.
These rules are proven via black and white statistics and because of this each edge is proven to provide a consistently profitable source of edge that you can implement immediately. All you’ll be doing each day is following this proven set of rules, much like myself and all of the other traders I’ve worked with do, and their results speak for themselves.
I’ve been making all of the usual mistakes i.e. Moving my stop-loss around mid-trade, not letting trades reach target, scaling out profit with no real reason why. I’m falling prey to letting emotion rule my trading. Can you help?
Absolutely, and these are the exact issues that mechanical strategies remove entirely. By trading a mechanical, rule-based edge, emotion is removed and you’ll know exactly what to do and exactly when to do it, meaning no more guessing, no more predicting and no more needing to ‘read’ the market ever again.
In addition to this, via the supporting statistics that you’ll receive alongside the detailed strategy guide, you’ll be able to re-run past trades-taken, seeing each edge play out in realtime, which will instil the confidence needed to run trades to target. Due to this, you’ll never feel the need to tamper with a trade ever again, thus removing self-sabotaging entirely.
I’m thinking of joining you in trading your mechanical edges, but before I decide to do so, could you share more detailed info on them for me?
Absolutely; Of the four strategies, there are two day-trade strategies, these being the Price Reversion and Session Momentum strategies, and two swing-trade strategies, these being the Higher-Timeframe Bias Bar edge and the D1 Swing edge.
My Price Reversion and Session Momentum strategies are recurring price sequences and/or structures that present a single setup at the start of every session. These setups can be carried into most markets, including currencies, indexes, stocks, etc.
To go into more detail, I noticed through nothing more complicated than looking at the charts every single day for weeks and months on end that certain price points would either attract or repel price to or away from them. When I noticed this happening extremely frequently, I built statistics on the occurrences, tested varying parameters that may allow me to profit from them, eventually was able to implement rules and from there, used this information to build both strategies.
My D1 swing edge is a completely mechanical momentum-play that I trade using a single momentum indicator alongside raw price-action, that can be applied to all markets and all timeframes. The edge works across all markets and all timeframes, and the setup is executed on using rules that entirely remove emotion from the trading process.
Within this strategy, depending on the timeframe selected and as it’s a swing strategy, positions are help from anywhere between a couple to a few days or weeks right up into the months. The strategy is designed to [almost just] run in the background. As mentioned above I usually hold positions at 1% initial risk each, keep total exposure below 25% of my total account equity and balance long-short, managing trades once a day. It’s an extremely passive and enjoyable way trade.
My Higher-Timeframe Bias Bar edge is a rule-based setup I built around one bias-bar in particular and that can be applied to all markets and all timeframes. I typically identify the bias-bar in question via a D1 timeframe which suits me best due to the very low time-commitment required, before moving down to a H1 timeframe to place an order by following my rules, before then walking away. Again, removing emotion and discretion entirely.
I trade this edge during the evenings by scanning through the major and minor currency pairs, and if I can identify a setup I place an order – Which takes no more than five minutes to do – Before then, as mentioned, walking away.
Again, as soon as we’ve executed on the setup/s, we’re then free to walk away, removing the common problem of mis-managing and tampering with positions which sabotages most new traders’ results and profitability. The strategies solve this issue entirely.
Which would be best for me?
This will depend on your time-availability.
If you’re busy throughout each day and cannot look at a single chart, not even via mobile, the swing-trade strategies would be best-suited to you as you’re able to trade these ‘out of hours’ in the evening, via the higher-timeframes.
If however you are able to keep an eye on the charts during the day-time, even if only for an hour or so in the morning, or an hour or so in the afternoon, you’ll be able to make use of either the day-trade or swing-trade strategies.
All four of the strategies can be applied to different markets, time-zones and trading sessions i.e. London session, New York session etc, too.
Could you confirm at exactly what time you trade the four strategies each day?
The day-edges are traded as of the open of a trading session. As an example, if you chose to use the London session, you would begin trading as of UK 07:00. If you chose the New York session, you would begin trading as of UK 14:30, and so on.
You can use any trading session that you like, irrelevant of timezone or country etc. The strategies are not timezone-dependant.
In most cases, we’ve executed and walked away – Truly a mechanical, hands-off approach to the markets – Within thirty to sixty minutes or so, although in rare cases the setups do take slightly longer to present themselves.
We trade the swing-edges in the evenings, outside of the work-day, and each takes between fifteen and thirty minutes or so in regards to scanning the markets to identify the setup/s we look for, before executing and walking away. Again, as soon as we’ve executed on the setup/s, we’re then free to walk away, removing the above issue entirely.
Could you provide a real-time example?
As a real-time example, lets take this morning’s trades, Friday September 13th, and I’ll share exact entry time/s and exit time/s with you:
– We executed at UK 07:05am via the Price Reversion edge applied to the DAX market, banking +1.8R and hitting target at UK 07:55am, within just fifty minutes.
– We also executed at UK 07:05am via the Session Momentum edge applied to the GBPUSD market, banking +2.5R and hitting target at UK 07:50am, within just forty five minutes.
From there, we were done for the day via these strategies with just the two trades-taken with, yes, just five minutes of ‘work’, and with +4.3R banked, growing our account by +8.6% at 2% risk per-trade.
*As the strategies are mechanical and rule-based, you’re also able to fact-check the above as soon as you have the rules for either strategy as black and white proof that both took place exactly as-noted*
In regards to the Higher-Timeframe Bias Bar edge, we trade this via the D1 timeframe in most cases, and place our orders for these trades in the evening. I manually scan the markets and rarely spend more than fifteen minutes identifying opportunities and placing my orders for these trades. This can be done at anytime within the last three to four hours of the session.
That said, this edge can be applied to all markets and all timeframes and can therefore be traded at any time within any given trading session, meaning it’s an extremely time-efficient approach to the markets.
In regards to the D1 Swing edge, we trade this by executing on either the open or the close of the market where we’ve identified a setup. As an example, if we’re given an entry-signal on lets say a UK equity market that opens at either the open [UK 08:00] or the close [UK 16:00] before walking away entirely.
That said, this strategy can also be applied to all markets and all timeframes and can therefore be traded at any time within any given trading session, meaning it’s another extremely time-efficient approach to the markets.
What exactly do you mean, ‘Day-Edge’ and ‘Swing-Edge’?
A day-edge is a strategy that gives us one or more setup/s per-day per-market, and these trades in most cases resolves on the same day we take the trade. A swing-edge is a strategy that may only give us one single setup per-day, and yet this trade may take – In the case of the Higher-Timeframe Bias Bar edge – Between one or two days to a week or so to resolve, and – In the case of the D1 Swing edge – Between one or two weeks to into the months to resolve.
Please note, using the day-edges as an example that usually trigger 1-2 trades per-day per-market; If you want to take two or three trades per-day, you’ll trade just two or three markets. If you want to take eight or nine trades per-day, you’ll trade eight or nine markets per-day, and so on.
You are in control of how many trades you take.
Which of the edges would you recommend, and why?
A great question and to answer this let me begin by explaining why I trade all four strategies combined, this being because doing so aids strategy-diversification, reducing draw-down and increasing run-up.
What I mean by this is, let’s say we solely trade one edge and this strategy has a down-week or a down-month. By only trading the one edge, we’re subjected to this draw-down, but by combining strategies and trading these across alternate uncorrelated markets we often find that where one edge under-performs, another over-performs and vice versa, reducing draw-down if not avoiding this completely, and in-turn, increasing account-growth.
This is the reason why very few professional traders only trade one edge alone. Strategy diversification is essential.
To answer the question more specifically though, which strategy or strategies you choose would depend on the time you have available to trade each day, as mentioned earlier.
Are the strategies completely ‘set and forget’?
That’s correct. Each of the four strategies are completely mechanical, rule-based setups. We follow the rules to a tee and after taking each trade, we do not ‘manage’ the position. We walk away, completely removing the common problem of mis-managing and tampering with positions which sabotages most new traders’ results and profitability. The strategies solve this issue entirely.
I only have a limited account-balance. Which edge would provide the easiest, fastest growth?
Strategy diversification, as mentioned earlier, comes back into question here. Please see my answer to the ‘which of the strategies would you recommend, and why’ question.
How long will it take me to make back the money I’ll be investing in myself?
The amount of profit you’ll make on a trade-by-trade basis will be based on your account-size and the risk you place on each trade.
In the past though, I’ve had traders make back the money that they invested in themselves within as little as one day, if not their very first trade…
Vau, who’s feedback is below, did just that;
…although Colin, who’s feedback is below, took slightly longer;
…and Matt, who’s feedback is below, grew his account by +9% within an hour of downloading the strategy guides and making a start;
…and Nick, who’s feedback is below, grew his trading account by a huge +11% and +6.4R without a single losing trade on week one;
…there’s absolutely nothing stopping you from doing the same.
Exactly how many trades are taken via the four strategies on an average day?
• Via the Session Momentum edge, we’re presented with one single setup per-day, per-market. If you choose to apply the edge to one market, you will take one trade per-day. If you choose to apply the edge to two markets, you will take two trades per-day, etc. You are in full control of how many trades you take per-day.
• Via the Price Reversion edge we’re also presented with one single setup per-day, per-market, yet within this approach we’re able to decide on our level of risk-reward and how many entries we take. If you choose to apply the edge to one market, you may only take one to two entries per-day. If you choose to apply the edge to two markets, you may take three to four entries per-day, etc. Again, you are in full control of how many trades you take per-day.
• Via the D1 Swing edge we’re presented with multiple setups per-day across all markets, and we’re free to execute on as many of these as we’d like to.
• Via the Higher-Timeframe Bias Bar edge we’re presented with multiple setups per-day across all markets, and we’re free to execute on as many of these as we’d like to.
I understand that the two swing strategies can be applied to all markets, but can the Price Reversion and Session Momentum strategies be applied to other markets, too?
That’s correct. Most of the traders I work with tend to select one or two markets for each and focus in on these, though the setups can certainly be used elsewhere.
As an example, I’ve worked with traders who have applied the Session Momentum edge to cryptocurrencies, currency markets and even indexes, and with traders who have applied the Price Reversion edge to indexes and also currency markets, too.
It’s also not uncommon for traders to see inside my edges and the setups that I use to capitalise on these and then use this knowledge and insight to uncover their own edges and build their own strategies in the future.
Do you offer a signal service, chat-room or live-room?
I don’t offer any of these services, no.
Reason being, my intention via sharing my strategies is to help you gain both profitable sources of edge that you’ll use to build your trading account, and more importantly independence, rather than leaving your trading career fully-reliant on someone else’s skillset going forward.
By learning my strategies, you’ll gain a complete understanding of the edges that I trade and with the rules in-hand all you’ll need to do is follow these, meaning you will never need to rely on someone providing trade-calls and will never be forced to sit fixed to a fast-paced live-room throughout every trading session ever again, putting you miles ahead of all the other traders who rely solely on these services immediately.
I live in [insert country]. Can your strategies be used in any country and any timezone?
That’s correct. Timezones do not affect performance or our setup/s whatsoever. We’ve worked with clients from England to Equador and from Australia to Algeria and beyond.
How difficult are the strategies to understand and use? Do I have to have trading experience to use them?
Experience certainly isn’t a requirement, no. Due to the rule-based nature of the strategies, they are therefore extremely easy to apply.
We also provide a ‘Beginner’s Guide’ at no-cost within the resources of each course we offer, and your success manager, who is also available at no-cost on a lifetime-basis, is only ever an Email away if you need help or have a question.
When I’ve joined you, how long will it be before I’m able to begin placing trades?
With each individual strategy-course being roughly two hours in length, you would be ready to begin placing trade/s after this.
I’ve been scammed in the past by traders who made huge claims but didn’t deliver…
What proof can you provide that your strategies genuinely perform?
I constantly strive to remain as open and transparent as possible and in an effort to do this I regularly do the following;
– I physically trade my strategies live and in real-time, screen-recording myself doing so and then sharing these live-trade videos via my YouTube channel.
– I regularly [and am always happy to] share my trade record/s showing genuine trades taken including exactly where we got in, where we got out, the date, the time, everything, black and white proof of performance.
– I also recently hosted the DAXMasters live-room for a week, calling my Price Reversion edge trades to room members in realtime, and I even followed this up with a blog post containing screenshots from the room itself along with mapping and outlining one of the trades that we took together.
…their feedback speaks for itself;
I’m also happy to have received and to be able to share consistent positive feedback from all of the traders who’ve joined me in trading the strategies through previous years.
Where can I learn more about you William?
I’m far from famous and I’m not the type of person to brag about my possessions like others out there who try to ‘sell you the dream’ so-to-speak, though I have shared my back-story on the ‘about me’ page of this site.
If you’re such a successful trader, then why sell a course?
A great question and really, there are two answers;
Firstly, and I know this leaves me slightly vulnerable, but, loneliness. As brilliant as working for myself from home is and as much as I wouldn’t ever want to have to go back to a ‘normal’ job ever again, one thing I’ve always struggled with is the isolation and loneliness of working from home [and in my case, rarely leaving the house], that I think most people don’t see.
Think about it; Outside of the work-day, and holidays-aside, how much time do you spend at home? …it’s a lot, right?
Again, I’m certainly not complaining here, but when you work from home, at least from my experience, the feeling of being ‘boxed in’ and ‘cut off’ comes around quickly, and for me at least, it was an uncomfortable realisation.
I know, ‘cry me a river’ mister runs his trading business full-time from home and can more or less work when he wants, on his own terms, with no income cap etc, but that’s what initially urged me to begin social media channels like the YouTube channel.
I was building content and sharing my knowledge and strategies – Initially for free for quite a while I should add, with my initial social media followers – To almost create a small community around me to ease that ‘boxed in’ and ‘cut off’ feeling, along with contributing to other people’s growth, and doing so was one of the best decisions I ever made as I’m now able to communicate regularly with the traders I’m lucky enough to be able to work with.
Secondly, it’s simply an additional income stream that I’m sure anyone with a similar opportunity would open up for themselves. I believe anyone with a valuable skill and/or valuable knowledge should share it to help others, and charging a fee is simply an exchange of value for the time and energy it takes to create what it is that a person’s sharing.
Just like I trade my own money, just like I invest in and own properties that I rent out, just like I invest money in an index fund, just like I mentor traders one-to-one, just like I receive royalties from allowing adverts on top of my YouTube content etc. It all adds up, and as far as I’m concerned, the more income streams the better for both diversity and wealth creation.
When I enrol in your Platinum program, what happens next? What will I receive?
As soon as you’re enrolled, you’ll have instant access to the program contents and will receive a ‘welcome’ Email from me personally, where I’ll also be introducing you to the team, and to your personal success manager, along with providing you with the calendar for your personal coach, so that you can book in your complimentary one-to-one call as and when you’re ready.
The program is designed in a way, and in a specific video-by-video order, that will not only walk you through exactly how and why each edge works and is applied – Paired with detailed supporting statistics document inclusive of exact trades-taken with exact entry point/s, entry time/s etc, so that you’re able to re-run past trades and see the edge/s playing out in realtime – But they also cover all of the critically important elements behind successful, consistent trading:
Mindset and understanding, terminology, understanding and correctly managing risk, understanding probabilities, edge, how to build and assess trade data, plus more. Also included, as if the former aren’t enough, are our ‘trader development resources’ at no-cost.
These include an in-detail training webinar that will show you exactly how I identify sources of edge and build viable, profitable strategies around these so that you can learn the skillset needed to do the same, along with an in-detail training manual on the subject of journaling, plus a copy of my trade journal that you’ll be able to print out and use.
Do you share the strategies individually?
We don’t, no. Let me explain why; Whilst we did used to do this, we found that, statistically, our most successful clients had everything we offer. All of the strategies, all of the support, everything. We have since, therefore, built-out just the one Platinum programme that we currently offer.
If I refer future clients, will I be compensated?
Absolutely. We offer a 20% referral commission on both individual products and recurring subscriptions i.e. Our ‘Inner-Circle’ coaching programme.
After joining us, simply click the ‘Affiliate’ link in your account, add your PayPal account details, and copy your referral link.
When anyone who clicks this link and makes a purchase, 25% of their purchase-price will be paid in to your PayPal account immediately, automatically.
If they choose a subscription service i.e. Our ‘Inner-Circle’ coaching programme, you will receive 25% of their fee every single month for as long as they are a member.
Are you able to recommend an appropriate starting-balance for my trading account?
Unfortunately, no. Whilst some may be comfortable starting with ‘x’, others may prefer to begin with ‘y’ and others may prefer to begin with ‘z’. This decision is entirely personal to you, your savings, your income, your circumstances, etc.
What are the ‘Trader Development Resources’ that are included in each package?
This unique additional folder of resources includes a risk-management guide in E-book format, a blank copy of a custom-built trade record, a trading journal guide in E-book format along with a template, and a training video outlining ‘how I identify edge and build viable, profitable strategies’ so that you can learn to do the same.
What account-type, if any, do I need to trade the edges?
You can use absolutely type of account to trade the edges, whether that’s a spread bet account, a contract for difference account, a direct-to-market account or a futures account.
I don’t understand how mechanical rules work. Can you explain and/or could you share a set of rules so I can better-understand?
No problem at all. Here is a video laying out a set of mechanical rules for you, along with explaining how they work and are used to trade. I’ve also walked through a trade I took last week, too.
What broker and/or software do you use?
Both myself and all of the team-members here at WBTrading use IG who provide a range of account-types from Spread Bet to Contract For Difference, etc. Charting is free.
Whilst we recommend the broker based on our experience in using them, the strategies are however not broker or software-dependant whatsoever. You can use any and a change is not necessary.
Which markets can your strategies be applied to?
Whilst we have not tested every market and sector that exists for logistical reasons, we can confirm that the strategies can be applied to the majority of available markets i.e. Currencies, indexes, equities, cryptocurrencies, etc.
We have built, and continue to actively research, strategy performance across a handful of markets so that you’re aware, and have proof that represents, where each edge performs best. This saves you the time in building this data for yourself, and is included at no-cost. As is all future data.
We swallow the cost – And the hundreds upon hundreds of hours of physical work required to build this – On your behalf.
How does your guarantee work?
I’m so confident that you’ll get results using the strategies that if you’ll simply take in the entirety of the course-contents, and apply them correctly across a two-quarter period whilst keeping a record of your trades, if the strategies don’t provide profitable trades, then I’ll not only refund you in-full immediately, I’ll also continue to work with you and support you going forward at no extra cost.
And not just that, either. The above is in writing, too, within our ‘welcome agreement’ inside the program in contract form, meaning we are legally bound by the above.
As far as I’m aware there isn’t a single other trader out there who’ll go to these lengths, but again, that’s how confident I am in what I provide.
Your success and results truly are the priority.
How many trades per-day can be taken using all four of your key strategies combined?
Due to the fact that you’re able to carry all of the strategies across multiple market/s, along with being able to carry the swing-edges across multiple timeframe/s, you’re able to take as many or as few trades as you’re comfortable with.
If you would like to increase trade-frequency, you will increase the number of market/s that you trade, along with decreasing the timeframe/s you use via the swing-edges, etc.
How much risk should I place within each trade I take?
This all depends on your account size.
We work with clients who are trading with £1,000 or less, and equally, we work with clients trading with over £1,000,000. Risk is of course different for each person, for example, you likely wouldn’t want to risk 2% of £1,000,000 on a trade because the P&L swings might be too much for said trader manage, depending on their experience, that is.
We usually recommend 1% as a standard starting-point, but again, if you were trading with a small account you might want to push this to 1.25% or 1.5% approx depending on your risk-tolerance, your account-size and so on.
How far back are the strategies tested?
We currently hold approximately six to seven years of strategy data for each strategy, showing performance as it remains strong through many alternate macro-economic happenings including covid, presidential elections, supply chain issues, government budget adjustments etc.
You have access to this data inside the program.
Do your team-members also trade the startegies?
A fantastic question, and I’m proud to say that every member of the team here at WBTrading initially joined me as a paying client.
This means that they are perfectly positioned to provide help within the company, along with support to you, because they have walked the walk and used the strategies to gain profitability themselves.
Across the years, I’ve formed close friendships with many of the people I’ve been lucky enough to work with and I view all clients as not just ‘clients’, but as friends.
This is one of our key company values; Treating those we work with as friends, and it’s my hope that both myself and the team come across as such.
It is part of what sets us apart from other companies within the industry. We truly care about you and your results and will always go above and beyond to help you achieve success.
I’m ready to make a start. Where do I go to begin?
Please visit the ‘Join My Community’ page, and you’ll find the Platinum program mid-way down the page.
As soon as you’ve completed your order and have checked-out via the store, you will automatically be enrolled within the program instantly, ready for you to make a start right away.
Both me and my team will look forward to working with you.
Let’s get you results.
