Hello there, this is our last lesson and I hope you put all this information to good use. Today we’ll be practicing all we’ve learnt over this course, and I’ll show you some results from our student that went through Horizon PRO, which is the next step to you becoming a professional trader, if you’re so inclined.
Right, let us have some practice. First, Impulses
Here’s one, not confirmed yet, though.
There’s the breakout, now this is officially a level, now let’s wait for the fractal, and there it goes
Now let’s recall the very first risk management rule – you stop loss should be no bigger than 2% of your deposit, in our case 10 000 dollar, which puts our cap at 200 dollars. Here our stop loss should be right there, which makes 400 pips
That makes our volume in this deal 0.5 lots in total, so 0.25 each. Our first target is 400 pips, in accordance with the stop loss, and the second target is the nearest impulsive zone
Unfortunately, a spike in the price stopped me out, but that why we have the volume limitations, isn’t it?
We wait for the price to approach the next zone, we get a false breakout and fractal. Here we decided to be a bit more aggressive and disregard the first safety rule, (shocker, I know, but you get an eye for these things after a while, I wouldn’t recommend this for newcomers) and enter with 2 lots, so 1 lot per deal. Stop loss is 540 pips, as is the first target, and as we know, the second goes to the nearest impulsive zone
The price hits my first target, so worst-case scenario is that I break even. During the wait I found another interesting level forming – the price seemed pretty reactive to it, I even had a chance for an entry there, but I unfortunately missed it.
Interestingly, it came back to the zone. I missed out again, but this is how I would have arranged the order
Along the way another interesting reactive zone was discovered. After the price broke it, I decided to rais my tp a bit, if you see a zone like that, and the price reverses indtead of breaking through, you might want to avoid the risk and close you order while you’re ahead, because the price may well keep dropping after that.
Regrettably, it turned out to be a false breakout, so I decided to close the order before it fell any further
This resulted in another impulsive zone, but let’s wait for confirmation
And then another impulse happened.
Sometimes, when you have two impulsive zones, and one refreshes the other, the second one is stronger
In terms of supply and demand, you have the seller’s point of control and the buyer’s. If a bullish impulse is stronger than a bearish impulse, the price will probably go up, rather than down.
When we zoomed out a bit, it occurred to me that the price just formed a false breakout of an older zone
Which made it a level, I entered with a stop loss at about 560 pips, first target the same, and then I let my second target just hang around while I see how the price is going to react.
The price promptly hit my first target, so no more risk involved. After that, the price reached an older zone and started to reverse, so I closed the deal while I’m ahead.
This was actually somewhat predictable as that’s the zone that refreshed the previous one, which means it’s a bit stronger than most zones around.
In the reverse movement another zone formed
But then the price, with another zone being born, broke through our strong buyer position. The new one must be really strong to break through the older zone – Sellers are in control for now.
The price approached an older zone, then came back with new one
Then a false breakout occurred so we opened with a stop loss at 300 pips and the second target at the latest zone
The price pretty much instantly hit both my goals, which was nice. It touched a zone in the process, but no breakout yet.
Kind of a breakout, but I’ve said before - body, not wicks.
Very strong move upwards, An impulse, a breakout, verification, lets open a position again
Stop loss at a dreadful 1000ish pips – really not the best, as the r/r ratio won’t be good at all, but let’s see
Luckily it did hit my targets, but this is a completely unacceptable deal for a newbie, follow the safe rule.
I think that’s enough charts, I’m sure you’ve gotten my point – it’s very simple, and demonstrably effective, just follow the safe rule, and you’ll be fine.
Now let’s see some of those results I mentioned, except we’ll start with Yan, who’s our top trader. This is from 2017 to 2019.
So he grew this account from 60 000USD to 210 000USD, with a maximum drawdown of 12%
In 2019 he started on a new account and from around 27 000 he went to almost 100 000 USD in 7 months, with a max drawdown of 8%
This was more short-term trading, the Horizon strategy is very universal, and you can pick and mix timeframes
Here’s an account he uses for midterm trading – this one went from 30 to 80 thousand USD with the max drawdown being about 15%
So that was Yan, he’s a pro, let’s see how our student faired, some being entirely new to this –
Now, like I said, Horizon is very universal. The techniques I showed were more midterm, H1 kind of stuff, but there are a lot of entry point for m5, m1 and so on
Here’s a result of one of Yan’s student’s. He was rather aggressive – scalping and the like. In three weeks, he went from 500 Dollars to around 1500, with a max drawdown of 7,2%. That’s 300%, and I think you’ll agree that 100% a week is bloody well impressive
I want to show you another very impressive aggressive result, in two months he made more than 200 000 euro – that just incredible if you ask me.
I’ll be honest. If you really dedicate and focus, with a pinch of our lovely strategy, you can reach the same results, it entirely depends on whether you’re ready to work hard.
