How long have you been trading on the real account?
I’ve been trading Forex since 2010.
Do you remember your worst and best trade?
Yes, I remember that my worst trading experience was losing on USDJPY in 2015 and my best was trading gold in 2016.
Do you consider yourself a professional trader? If so, why?
Since I have a few other jobs a more fitting definition, rather than professional trader, would be - an experienced trader. The path to effectivity is a combination of experience and education. That means that even the best theoretical foundation will not help you when practice and experience are lacking. And the experience is thousands of hours with charts, losses, wins, zeroed accounts.
What is your standard day like?
In order to be successful throughout the day, a good night’s sleep is absolutely essential. That’s why I try to sleep at least 7-8 hours a night. Breakfast is usually followed by browsing through the market-related news, economic calendar, and going through charts looking for candlestick patterns that meet the requirements of my strategy.
In case I find an interesting setup I continue with opening order and if it’s a particularly good one I share it on social networks (I have my own group on FB, multiple channels on Telegram, and private thread on ForexFactory). However, I try not to spend too much time in front of the computer, be that as it may, it still takes up to 5-6 hours a day
Are you trading alone or are you part of some trading community where you exchange ideas and share experiences?
I close my trading day in the evening as the US session ends. After that, I review the daily and H4 charts in terms of my strategy assumptions and check whether if it’s worth it watching the next day.
I trade on my own, strictly adhering to the rules of my strategy. With that said I also participate in discussions on trading forums or Facebook thematic groups. However, I try not to follow anyone’s opinions.
Your strategy - DD2021PT - is available in the Purple Zone where users can connect to it. Tell us more about the strategy, what it is all about and what the results are.
The DD2021PT (Dariusz Dargo 2021 Purple Trading) strategy is designed to have a low decline (DrawDown) and potential profitability of about 5-10 % per month. It is built on my own three strategies Price Action + MACD, EMA 144 and Range Bar Scalping.
If readers would like to learn more about these strategies I went on to a detailed description in these articles:

I will just add that this account has been running for 8 weeks and in March I closed at + 7.5% and April at + 13.5%. The retraction did not exceed 11%.
