This time next year …

The diary of a forex trader … without the bullsh£t

Photo a few years old … think I need a new one lol

I’ve been trading for 15 years … it’s now time to share my experience …

Welcome to my blog

My name is Paul Shaw and i’m the creator and founder of the SHAW 4 trading strategy. Crikey that sounds grand lol … the bottom line is I have traded forex for around 15 years, thats around 50,000 hours of screen time so I guess I should know a thing or two by now. Anyway, I do have an amazing strategy and feeling frustrated with the lack of honesty in the forex trading business, I want to share a year of my trading experience with you … and since its New Years Eve, there couldn’t be a better time to start. I hope you will follow my journey as I try to turn £20,000 into £500,000 in just 12 months …

Amazing Performance … Lets hope I can make this happen next year ….

So, as you can see from the graph above, 2019 was another great year for the SHAW 4 trading strategy and sitting here on New Years Eve, I’m reflecting on last year and preparing for the year ahead. The world of Forex Trading is full of scam artists, wannabe millionaires and wishful thinkers, all offering some sort of trading service, squeezing an income from newbie traders as well as existing traders, and in the process gradually draining their trading accounts. I know because in my early days I wasted money, trusting these guys to help me. In a world where people don’t always seem to be quite so genuine, I want to bring some transparency to the market and hope I will have the patience and commitment to create this blog, so you can follow my trades, share with me my highs and lows, my good times as well as the times when I just want to throw the towel in (and yes it does get like that) when I struggle to keep to the plan … I’m going to share my journey with you, warts and all and hope you will come with me.

Plan the Trade … Trade the Plan – This is the first lesson. Sounds simple enough but so difficult to do. Emotions can take over, even after over 50,000 hours sitting in front of charts, so let’s commit to the plan. I’m going to trade ONLY the SHAW 4 strategy, ignoring whatever else is going on in the world and I will certainly not chase the market, ignoring all temptation to ride the rocket on the chart which will most likely crash to earth as soon as I board. I’m waffling already … so let’s be clear, I’m starting with £20,000 in my trading account, risking a higher risk, hefty 5% (£1,000 minimum) per trade and using exponential growth I intend to grow the account to around £100,000 by 6 months, then maintain that trade size to earn £500,000 by the end of the year. Yes, I know it’s incredibly ambitious but if you don’t aim high, then you run the risk of not getting very far.

Incidentally, I hope you understand I am baring my soul here for nothing more than to share with you my experiences, and perhaps help motivate you in your trading, so if it doesn’t pan out and I have egg on my face, please be nice
