Now, let’s delve into the perspectives of Rowell and Kyle on their trading strategies.

Rowell Quek – Top Trader Strategies

“In trading, I’ve learned the importance of tailoring lot sizes to fit my account, which aids in risk management. Controlling emotions remains a challenge; specifically, the reluctance to accept losses. Trading is a journey of self-discovery and often an emotional roller coaster. Stress is a constant companion, whether dealing with profits or losses. Experience has taught me the value of small gains and the power of compounding.

While losing streaks happen, perseverance and trust in my skills and process are key. Like any discipline, consistency is critical in trading. Showing up daily, just as one would in a sport, is essential. Patience is also crucial, especially in waiting for the right setups and not forcing trades to recover from losses. Trading goes against natural human emotions, making it a continuous learning curve.

I wouldn’t consider myself a master of trading yet, as there’s always room for self-improvement. Many let the fear of failure restrain them, but it’s the unseen struggles behind success stories that forge resilience. Surrendering to challenges is simple, but true growth comes from persevering and turning each setback into a learning opportunity. Belief in oneself, continual learning, and progress are crucial to success. Embrace the journey, trust the process, and remember, it’s not the tough times but the tough people that last.”

Kyle NG – Top Trader Strategies

“Over time, my approach to risk management has improved. I’ve found success in incrementally increasing my positions in trades that show clear direction on larger timeframes, starting with a single entry and expanding as the market moves in my favor. I cap my risk at 0.25% per trade, avoiding exceeding 0.5% in total open risk. I’ve learned the importance of knowing when to increase trade sizes, especially during rare high-quality setups.

Full-time trading brings unique stress, and routine is my anchor. Bad streaks can disrupt, but stepping back to “touch grass” keeps my perspective. Past hardships have been invaluable, teaching me to adhere to rules and risk management to avoid repeating those stressful times. Now, I focus on fine-tuning my strategy for better profit maximization and drawdown reduction rather than overhauling my system. Deliberate focus in one area at a time, especially on weaker aspects, enhances my trading performance more effectively than spreading my efforts too thinly.

I’ve refined my trading strategy to the point where only minor adjustments are necessary to enhance profits and decrease downtimes. My system is stable, so I focus on perfecting my trade entries, exits, and stop-loss placements. In terms of personal development, concentration on one aspect of trading at a time is key — be it technical analysis, risk management, or trading psychology. Trying to improve all areas simultaneously can be counterproductive. Instead, I prioritize areas that need the most improvement, as they can significantly impact overall performance.”
