This blog will be about trading forex.

Trading forex with High Quality.

High quality is the trading edge, i.e. something that makes it possible for you to trade in a consistently profitable way.

By consistently profitable I mean having a net profit every month or quarter – for many years. (I am not there yet… learning).
