🎓 About Serhat:
I have been trading for 4 years and have been a member of Falcon FX for a little over 3 years now.
I was born in North London and my ethnic back ground is Turkish, I have a graduate degree in business management with Finance, I enjoy going to the gym spending time with my new puppy and personal development.
👉 What brought your attention to Forex trading?
I discovered FX trading during my time at university when I wanted to pursue a career in investment banking. After graduating I found it difficult to break into the labour market due to high competition and requirements of excellent grades and a top tier university degree, which I fell short of.
I did not let this get in the way of my dream so I decided I can do this for myself as a retail trader and trade my own capital.
Fast forward many years I am now a Portfolio Asset Manager trading the in house FFX Fund that Falcon FX offer.
👉 What was your ‘a-ha’ moment when you realized the importance of psychology in trading?
I went through a period in my trading where I was doing the break even dance and not once thought to address and work on my psychology.
Before I did, I would question my own ability and sometimes even the strategy I was using. However, the intorduction of addressing your psychology was a new concept that the Rewired programme brought to the surface.
As traders when we start our journey, psychology is the last thing we think about but it is the most important in my opinion. If our self image is incorrect and not aligned with our goals then we will struggle to be successful.
The Rewired programme was instrumental in helping me identify this and helped me recreate my self image to one that encompasses the successful traits of a consistently profitable FX trader at scale.
Moreover, the concepts of visualisation meditations that help you align with your future self image have also been crucial in dealing with small tweaks in my trading.
👉 What were your first impressions of Rewired upon enrolling?
The quality and presentation of the content is great, it is laid out step by step in order of importance which compliments each module.
As you progress you can track your development through the completed percentage stat on the dashboard.
The option of having the videos as audio files also makes it good to listen to whilst driving or on a run.
Overall I was very excited to be part of this programme as I knew it would be instrumental in my development as a trader.
👉 How has Rewired impacted your trading performance?
I can say that Rewired has helped massively in the process of me passing my FFX Fund assessment.
Additionally it has also helped me maintain my fund during periods of losses as I was able to stay calm and behave like a 7 figure trader would due to the self image correction exercises I would do consistently.
Furthermore, it has gave me self belief that I can achieve my future goal of becoming a 7 figure trader through affirmations and visualisation techniques.
👉 Would you recommend Rewired to other traders? And if yes, why?
100%. Trading is 80% psychology and 20% technical analysis. We learn this very late on in our journey but once we realised how important it is we get to work on it.
I do believe everyones trading journey is unique to them and psychology is an element that needs to be addressed once a trader is comfortable and confident trading their strategy and understanding market behaviour.
👉 Based on what you know now after enrolling in Rewired, would you agree that psychology is important even in the early stages?
Yes I agree!
👉 What does the future look for you now that you have both your strategy and psychology on lockdown?
I see myself trading 7 figures on the FFX Fund by the end of 2023. I have already achieved this goal in my mind so every day I act as if I am a 7 figure trader and am aligned with this goal.
