Tell us a little about yourself as a trader.
Nothing is more exciting than the stock market. It offers so many opportunities and challenges. As a trader, I try not to be guided by emotions and to use trends consistently.
What training do you have in the area of finance?
The stock market has interested and fascinated me since my youth. I practically grew into becoming a trader because my father was already active in the stock market. There are ten golden rules on the stock exchange – and the first is: Forget your diploma!
How did you end up in the capital market?
During the New Market from 1996 to 1997 I dared to start trading with my savings. It all seemed very easy at the beginning – until the crash came and I learned the hard way. The second start in 2003 was quite different. I had developed a strategy and implemented it in a disciplined manner, with success. And I have remained true to this strategy to this day.
Why are you with Follow MyTrader?
It’s an exciting project. I think it’s great that with the app I can make my strategy and my success available to others. I’ll let myself be surprised. In my experience, it is not possible to achieve a consistently above-average investment result – unless I do something different from the majority. My followers can benefit from this.
Your returns target?
Return targets are always hard to say. I have been running a professional trading depot since 2013, where I have a return of around 22 percent per year. That would also be a nice goal for my portfolio at Follow MyTrader.
What advice do you have for your followers?
You can’t make a profit by force, the next chance is sure to come. The stock market is a very difficult business. Fear and greed shouldn’t seize you: They are the worst killers.
