Experienced Trader and Sales Trader Dragostin Kozhuharov will share his trades and his decision making process. The goal of this blog is to make trading more accessible and to share more than 5 years of practical and theoretical experience.
Born in 1990 I spent my school years in Bulgaria. Moved to the United Kingdom to study and graduated with BA Political Science and MSc Oil and Gas Trade Management. I started my trading career in 2015. I did a project for a hedge fund which helped them with the pricing of derivatives on the Azeri Manat. Then I completed a trading career programme at Amplify Trading during which I traded live Fixed Income, Energy, FX and Index futures. After this I traded my own account successfully before joining a proprietary trading company which focused on day trading of equities and ETFs. Then I moved to another side of the business – brokerage. I worked at an FCA regulated brokerage starting as a Junior Sales Trader and in less than 3 years I advanced to be the CF30 (becoming an approved person by the FCA) and managing the partnerships side of the business.
What markets do I trade? – I focus mainly on indices and commodities.
What is your timeframe? – I prefer a trading style which entails holding trades between a few days to a few months. Some people label it as swing trading. During my career I have also successfully day traded and done longer term trades.
How do you form your trading ideas? – I believe in a combination of technical and fundamental analysis. I also try to backtest my strategies in order to confirm that strategies and trades have worked successfully in the past. I also put a lot of emphasis on risk management and psychology. Understanding behavior and that people are by nature irrational is of big importance for traders.
