About Johnwai
Joined July 2016
Hi I'm John from the UK and aged 33. I work shifts as a data centre engineer and I love currency trading, strength training at the gym and comics to name a few.

Affiliate marketing is not new to me as I had tried another course previously. That moment when you get your first sale, it's the greatest feeling as your hard work has paid off.

I stopped because I wasn't too interested in the niche I chose and finally gave up. Only to find out later that someone else had bought my domain and also stole all my content. I managed to hunt this thief 3 times and had his site brought down every time. That was quite a fun experience :)

I now run a Forex blog or journal on Drupal as to Wordpress and see if I can apply what I learn at WA to my website. Forex is my passion and I am hoping to bring affiliate marketing into it somehow.

With either or both choices I hope to gain financial freedom one day. As they say, shift workers don't have a long shelf life.

Hope you all enjoy WA and be successful in whatever your set out to achieve.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Non Financial Goals -

The next 10 days - Go through course 1
The next 30 days - Build upon what I learnt from the course. SEO my site and drive traffic to it too. Promote products etc...
The next 6 months - If I have success, treat myself to a holiday
The next year - If anymore success more holiday :)

Thanks John but I'm a far cry from an investment counselor. I can tell you a lot more of what not to do than what to do. Experience sometimes is a nasty teacher.

I found a few forex traders on WA which was totally unexpected.
Need to get better at it though, which was also another reason why I started my site.

Wow I'll be looking forward to learning a few things from you.

What I enjoy about trading is how it psychologically affects people. Especially peoples attitude and psychology to money.
Yes, I am bit of a psycho :)

Through trading I have also learnt so much about myself.

I've been into Forex since 2009. I'm getting better at it, but no where near profitable enough living off the account.
Reply
BelieveItYes Premium
Hmmmm it's not as easy as they say, huh? do you trade naked forex or automated forex?
I'm making money with forex but not to the point where I can take one trade and take a vacation lol. But I'm getting there...
Do you trade reversals or trend?
Reply
johnwai Premium
Ah, you're knowledgeable in this area.

I trade naked hahaha. I traded a supply and demand strategy live in 2014 and was successful with that system. Due to paying off for a new car in 2015 I've now stopped.

This year I am currently demo trading a price action strategy, which also seems to be working out. I trade candlestick patterns off support and resistance and also with the trend.

I see how I do towards the end of the year before going live with that system. I have been using my website to journal a majority of my trades and I will be introducing SEO and affiliate marketing elements into it.

It's certainly not easy, I wasted so much money on courses and at times the market had played with my emotions. But the market does not care. I'm immune to it now, maybe because I am getting old lol.

Hope you don't mind such a long reply.
Reply
BelieveItYes Premium
Lol I also trade "naked" ahah after wasting too much time, energy and money on stupid useless indicators.

I read a book that changed my approach of trading and my psychology while trading. Now I don't care what the market does, I just completely trust my system and if I fail... well, it's either because I did not follow the rules or because I got unlucky lol.

I trade reversals and my favorite catalyst is the kangaroo tail but it doesn't occur too often. I find it very difficult to trade the trend, I just can't seem to do it lol.

I spend a lot of time working on my S/R zones because they are so so so important. Price does have a memory and it's almost beautiful sometimes how price will bounce on a line that you traced two years ago lol.

I just won 21 trades actually lol.. but only small amounts (6 to 60 euros, mostly 8 euros). I am a scalper lol, I take short trades most of the time. I'd rather have a high win rate and small gains than lose most of my trades and once in a while, make a huuuuuge trade of a thousand pips lol. I'm a scalper and a gunner, as they say. An impatient one ^^

Anyway, sorry for the long reply lol, I don't get to talk to traders on here
Reply
johnwai Premium
Our conversation may have to go private concerning trading naked :) I tried scalping but it wasn't for me. One second I am happy the next I am pulling my hair out. Sure way of getting a heart attack. For me anyway.

I like to look at the charts once a day and see if there are any possible trades. Then I check it in the morning and see how things go.

Supply and resistance can be zones or big round numbers. The obvious s/r zones normally close to big round numbers. As you zoom in on smaller price charts, the candles react non significant ones.

I'm deciding weather to do short trades like yourself which has been working for me. This week I have been testing if my system is suitable for the longer term.

Where there's a gunner there is a sniper. I happen to be a forex sniper :)

Well it's a small world and at the same time hard to encounter other retail traders like us.

Hope you have a profitable trading week and the affiliate marketing business too.

Hi Kyle,

It's crazy hot in the UK. I'm sweating even with the fan on.
Things are going good. Will probably go premium closer to the deadline.

Just got onto lesson 8 of course 1. My niche is learning to trade successfully. To my surprise a lot of common used trading terms have a traffic score for less than 50.

Everyone wants to learn to trade due to its great rewards, just wondering if I should dominate using the low traffic keywords.

Excellent to hear John, sounds like you are making some good progress. As you continue to move forward within the training you are going to truly see your business take shape.

If you do need anything going forward, just let me know. ;)

John,

Just though I'd pop in to give some keyword research advice. If your blog is still new, you won't be able to compete against huge sites. So it's best to aim for low-competitive keywords with QSR (quoted search result, WA's keyword analysis metric) lower than 100. And focus on search intent over traffic. Ask what are the folks searching this keyword looking for?

For example, someone searching for "learn forex trading free" and "best forex trading course" have very different intentions.

As Kyle suggests, keep following the course. You'll see your business take shape as you move forward.

All the best,
Anh

The key to affiliate marketing is to recommend great products, then have an efficient SEO strategy to put your content in front of the folks willing to buy. I read in your profile that you're into Forex, a quick Google search shows a lot of products. It's a nifty and profitable niche!

And aww, thanks for the kind words. I found posting monthly updates on WA helps a lot in keeping myself accountable. :)

My weekend has been great. My siblings and cousins all went home during summer vacation so there's a lot of family time. How is your weekend?

Happy Saturday,

Got family from Hong Kong and Germany staying over with us in the UK. So it has been busy and tiring at the same time. Lots of driving around, but good fun.

Forex is definitely a good one. What's more I am also learning myself. I am also journaling my trades, which means there will be infinite content as long as I trade. I will be looking to review and test out products like you mentioned.

John, good to hear you're enjoying yourself! Family time can be tiresome for sure, but it's worth it at the end of the day.

What's great about blogging is that you learn as much as you write. I've always prefer blogs about personal experiences, and case studies instead of objective guides. Feel free to share your site with me, I don't know much about Forex but would love to check it out. :)

Hi Anh,

It's a dot com website and it goes by the name of Wai Enterprise in one word.

Won't mind some feedbacks. Not done much SEO to it as it's just purely to journal my Forex trades.

A question for you. I created a website via siterubix but it's not showing under the website section located below my profile picture. Doe's that take time or is there somewhere I need to go for it to appear ?

Best Regards,

John,
Reply
Anh Premium
John,

Alright, I'll check out Wai Enterprise and let you know what I think in terms of SEO and content etc.

As for the links under your profile picture, they don't automatically update with your SiteRubix sites, since not all of us want to make it public. You can manually add any sites there (even non-WA sites like Wai Enterprise) by going to your profile and click on the blue Manage My Sites button.

I hope this helps!

Cheers,
Anh

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)
