My name is Laurian Gabriel, I am from Romania. Everyone knows me as FX Lord Ice and they usually call me just Ice. I’m a full time trader for over 10 years. And I’ve been trading for 15y+ in many financial markets: stocks, penny stocks, futures, indices, commodities, forex and in late 2017 I started crypto trading (when HODL wasn’t that efficient anymore).
My crypto trading system is based on Advanced Asset Allocation & Money Management (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asset_allocation), containing, most of the time, from 19 to 38 coins, to diversify the risk and to increase the chance of trading the most profitable coins, per time unit.
It’s a no loss trading system, due to the fact, I never use 100% of my account balance to take these trades. I use from 25% to 50% of my account balance in the same time. And I use the remaining balance to perform 1 to 3 DCA (if the prices drop, after my first buy, I’ll buy some more to average the investment cost/amount): https://www.investopedia.com/terms/d/dollarcostaveraging.asp
Afterwords I decide if I use the same Take Profit level (2nd, 3rd and 4th entry, could have a bigger profit than 10%) or if the Markets conditions are not suited, I use the same 10% TP for all the entries (averaging the profits as well, to save the Compounding Time, for my account).
My trading strategy
Swing Trading using Elliott Wave, Harmonic Patterns, Fibonacci Confluence Areas (a.k.a Fibs Clusters), to determine the highest probability setup. And I place my Buy Pending Orders on the H4 Time Frame, at the most logical Demand Zone (Support Areas). Then, I use the next Resistance Area for Taking Profit (Supply Zone). I aim for just as little as 10%, for my Take Profit/position because I’ve notice the ADR (Average Daily Range) for most of the traded coins is around this level. This way, my Take Profit Level is usually reached in 1-2 days, maximum 5 days (very rarely was more than 1 week). So, I have an average of min 2% per day regardless the markets conditions (Bullish/Bearish/Ranging – in Bearish Trend, I just collect profits later than usual). Except for when the Trend show signs of changing, when it’s not safe to trade, nor the proper levels confirmed (false Breakouts or just unconfirmed ones, yet, on Higher Time Frames)
So, in Bearish Market (Trend or just big Corrective Swings for Bullish), we focus on accumulating coins, while in Bullish Market (Trend or just big Corrective Swings for Bearish), we’ll liquidate, some or all our previous purchased coins, in profits.
Amount of capital required to copy my trades
Binance Exchange, use a min amount of $10/trade. Due to this, you will need a min account balance of $760 (Binance.com customers and US citizens with Binance legacy accounts, will use a min $760 worth of USDt, while Binance.US customers must use a min of USD760, instead of Tether). I will use most of the time max $380, but I need the other $380 to perform at least one DCA – I rarely need it for all the coins at the same time.
I recommend you to use this initial account amount and perform monthly savings and deposit into your account. Could be $50 up to $1000 monthly savings, if you can afford it, once you are familiar and satisfied with the results. This will help your account compound growth, in the first months and decrease the time until you reach your goal.
Compound Interest Calculator
A decent 2% per day should be expected on average (an yearly average or if it’ll take too long the Bearish Trend or Ranging Market, even on multi-years; so, long run investing portfolio, as a Savings & Investments account). You can use an online Compound Interest Calculator, to understand this is more than enough, to grow your account to 6 figures, in 1 year time, if the market volatility & coins volumes would allow us to trade as normally: https://www.thecalculatorsite.com/finance/calculators/compoundinterestcalculator.php
Settings for the online Compound Interest Calculator, as example:
As you can see (Graph of Results), initially your account will grow slower. But as the time goes by, the bigger it gets. That’s the power of compounding!
And of course, you can help your account growth, by using the same settings and use a “Regular Monthly” (deposits) of let’s say $200 ($50 = 25%, for increasing the trading amount and $150 = 75%, for 3 x DCA purpose, if need it). This will reduce the time to reach the same profits level (or grow much more in the same 12 months, from our example).
At a certain level of the account balance, these monthly savings will not be efficient, anymore. And that is the moment, when you can use these savings to diversify some more (see my “Final Words”, just below – new strategies coming soon).
Expectations vs Reality
We all know and you should be aware that: “Past performance is not a guarantee of future results!”.
But I’ll do my best to maintain the same level of profits, each day. We might have some low activity days, weeks or even months, where it’s not safe to trade or I’ll take some days off (usually I try to overlap my holidays with these low volatility market periods). But, eventually, sooner or later, we can reach those numbers from the example above (as average, in the long run).
I intend to build more strategies by using this awesome website & services, just to be able to satisfy all your needs and demands, when it comes to your trading activity (BTC accumulation, only – an iceberg strategy: https://www.investopedia.com/terms/i/icebergorder.asp ; accumulation on all the coins from the basket – by liquidating partially the positions, to cash back the initial amount/trade, only; etc).
And if you will be happy with the results and many people will join us, we already agree, we can find a way to lower this minimum monthly fee. So, feel free to use the Affiliate section and invite your friends to participate in the same profits as you.
I’m really happy the admins are managing the payments and copy software. I will focus 100% on providing you the best trades and profits the markets can give us. Rest assured, no almost sure opportunities will be missed, in most of my 24/7 watch. I love what I do. And I do it, so you don’t have to.
