Former 52 Traders guest and a robot trader from Ireland, Ivo Luhse, started his trading journey back in 2006 as a manual Forex trader. He was mentored by Andrew Mitchem, was also on the 52 Traders podcast, where he learned the technical strategies of trading he uses today.
By 2012, he became consistent and made trading his full-time career. And by automating the strategy he’d learnt, he was able to skyrocket his profits and dominated four different markets with a clever technology hack that you’ll hear about in today’s show.
Currently, Ivo’s developing his own trading bot platform to even make his approach to trading more convenient and even easier to execute.

- [21:20] The only way you can get the experience is when you actually go on a trade and press the button saying yes or no.
- [23:17] Blackbox trading doesn’t work anymore.
- [29:31] Bitcoin is designed to be slow. This is its main protection mechanism.
- [34:11] If you have Bitcoin then definitely just hold on to it.
