For you

I can’t sleep. Currently thinking about my life choices…

separator

Hi. How have you’ve been?

Make sure you tell your family that you love them. They are one of the big factors in your life. Basically, they always check you up no matter how much you fight. Cheer you up  even they don’t understand what’s going on. They are just there. Your biggest fan. Put on alerts so you don’t forget their birthdays, no matter how busy you are.

Make sure you get up, even you cry over a lost love, money or drive towards the circumstances you have in life. Don’t stop what you have started right because at the end of the day everyone will wait if you bounce back or not. The pros know that waiting for EOD is a rule of thumb. Be bold and don’t be so hard on yourself. The world doesn’t need so much drama and neither you, also know that it’s not healthy to your mindset which so you knew is prone to deterioration.

I wish I could you make you understand as early as now that you are defined by the smaller acts of distinction once you mastered your inner self. Patience in understanding it and knowing it by heart really takes time.

Refuse to be defined by your limiting beliefs and challenge them when they no longer serve you. Be vigilant.

Follow your trading plan.

An open letter to my old self…

TradeRAKating ZFTs in SIARGAO!

Coming from a girl who loves nothing but traveling, the invitation to go RAKing in a place she hasn’t been is really alluring.

“It would be really awesome to be with them in the south this time.” myself said, and myself did. We did.

Please excuse me for this photo. Minsan lang naman. LOL

That was the longest trip I had ever had in my entire slaved life. That time my attention was focused on the outward things. I heard random noises of coconut palms dressed in the heart of the island, interrupted winds from the pacific ocean, sweet barks of dogs– lovely dogs, evaporating waters from shinning yellowish sandbars, sexy curves of coastal tides, non-stop habal-habal engines, and English-speaking foreigners along with the locals– well, don’t imagine my nose bleeding. Please.

We never noticed time ticking for deadlines as how I guess we are on a day to day basis…

Together, we traded, we RAKed and we had fun….

Look oh… rapbe!

I confused who took this photo 😛

ZFTs’ Random Act of Kindness goes to Siargao. That awesome place is a tear-drop shaped island in the Philippine sea, province of Surigao del Norte (as copypaste from google …. hihihi).

On April 17, 2017, some medical specialist in the tribe went on Operation Tuli in partnership with Gawad Kalinga in Brgy. General Luna Siargao, Surigao der Norte. Dozens of male kids benefited on this medical mission.

It’s a pleasure to understand how guys get pained during their 1st stage of manhood.  I salute them. That was really indeed painful though.

IMG_7120.jpg

Now, I understand why I didn’t take any medical courses.

2.png
I’m also confused who took this.

Indeed, it was a successful RAK. I really had enough.

IMG_7127_1.png

Congratulations Brothas!
You guys are now completely “men”.
Thank you for letting us, ZFTs to be a part of it.


Meanwhile…..

“Pag nag close sa 0.36 MRC today libre ko na dinner oh.” said boss Zee

All eyes were at MRC. Craving for a very delicious dinner, everybody from the group prayed for it to close at 0.36…

“0.31… 0.32… closed at 0.315” said Zan Snow

However, it didn’t close at that level we wished it to be…

“…..” said boss Henry Tan (he had MRC, he’s fine)

I hate you MRC! Hahaha The fancy supper for free by the boss was gone. Urg. LOL. Well, it’s okay, the experience we had seeing Boss Zee and sir Henry Tan traded live was priceless. Boss Zee even let us see one of his ports and it was a dazzling one. I salivated for a moment. 😛

I was also given precious chances to have one on one talks with the bosses. I saw how humble they are but you would not want to be with them trading live, given the fact that you’re not holding the stock they are holding. Hahaha. They would really test your mindset toward your trade and it’s not easy dude. My palm was really itchy to cut CPM and it’s a blessing that the Internet was not sufficient to sell, also I wouldn’t really cut either. LOL

So my TP was still hit…

Qouta na… and with these trades I bought last Friday.. please make me quota early for the next month… puleasseee T.T

For all, I thank God.
Thank you for the gift of camaraderie.
Thank you for the gift of knowledge to trade independently.
Thank you for the people I am blessed to talk with.
Thank you the lives of these fellas who keep on inspiring others including me.

Who The Hell is Paftee?

To those who were asking for my FB account, I am so sorry…I don’t usually use my troll account. I don’t even have time to browse my real account what more on my troll. LOL. I also end up reading nonsense posts for no reasons. I might also read some funda news and get hyped. 😦 I try to avoid those as much as possible so that my sanity wouldn’t be taken away. I need it more please. hahaha

Pepperoni.png

Also, I equate things that will matter most of my time and will have a huge impact two to five years of my existence in planet earth, that is also why I already quit my job, not because I was already freaking good at trading, I am still in the process of knowing myself…yah know, but because it does not help me in achieving my goals anymore. Instead, it hindered me to have an ample time in making my analysis and know myself in the market further.

I’m at my twenties and life without a job is hard and scary when you belong in the sandwich generation. However, life without a goal is scarier.

tumblr_ms54sxlzjZ1sn3199o1_500.gif

A teacher by profession, I was paid based on time not based on the result of how I taught. I hate it so much when, my best was not even compensated and yet others were recognized because of my work. Not to complain since I love teaching, I just felt so used. I received approximately twenty thousand a month without benefits for years minus the damages I did because of my wrong decisions concerning money. Yeap, low salary plus huge debts equals agony. Still breathing though, a good sign to put myself together again for all the mistakes I had done.

I have some questions and if you don’t mind, you can give your answers in the comment section below. 

What would you do when you’re raised without having a mindset of an investor or a wealthy person yet you have you have big dreams of becoming one?

How would you still pursue trading when you failed at it not once but a lot of times and your love ones still mock you and keep reminding you about those failures and encourage you to look for a more stable job?

How would you tell the people around you that you can make it while they believe trading is a gambling and only for those with money to spare? And for them, the only way for you to be the person you want to become is to find a decent job and be faithful to the company you work with.

Moreover, how about the battle in your head that says, “Yeah, hmm…maybe they are right?”

dont-make-me-adult.jpg

Looking back, I was lucky to be chosen by Boss Zee as one of the bastards. He gave me a pass to the beautiful world of good people. He is a simple man with a big heart. I admire this man so much. I was luckier to be mentored by Sir Isiah Matthew Go. He was so cool back in our session days and mind you, he has recently welcomed freedom away from the corporate slavery to become a full-time trader. And, em the luckiest when I became one of Kap’s students in IMPACT for free. I was able to witness her teaching live. There’s so much passion in what she does and every puzzle I had in my mind about trading was made whole because of her. She’s also beautiful.

There are so much blessings to be wasted. They don’t even equate to the challenges I have. Because of them, my future is brighter. They didn’t even ask me anything in return. I commit myself to help them with the best that I can in doing their RAKs whatever it takes not because I need to pay them back but because it always reminds me that I am blessed and there are more people who need help. It also increases my gratitude for what the Lord has made me become in spite of all the challenges I face.

I don’t only write this for my readers, if there are any LOL, to know who Paftee is but for traders who are still corporate slaves having less time and still paying debts, for employees who commit themselves to fulfill their passion yet less compensated, for some who are still fighting an inner battle of failures in life and for some who simply have a dream of being financially independent.

By the way, I’m not yet trading full-time because my capital is still small but the good news is it’s the goal.

Here are my port snaps this month of February.

BLOOM_AT.png

I suck at selling so I was just able to sell Bloom with 2% gains.

“What’s your best trade?”
“The next one.”

-ZFT Kidlat

Anyway, there are still a room from improvements so…

PSPC_AT_1.png

This time I was able to sell AT with 17% gains. I was on GTC mode and I just found out last Tuesday it got hit.

AT_blog.png

and lastly….

pspc_blog_2

here’s a screenshot before the market opened earlier…

pspc_closing_02-18-2017

PSPC with 47% gains… woah!!!

pspc_1

Please do the math nalang hahaha… I was not able to capture the moment when it hit 47% since the events were so fast and PSPC just got lost in my equity folder when it was already filled at 2.30.

I cannot fathom how I would be performing in the market without my mentors. They are the ones whom I look up to. Thank you mentors!! Muah muah chup chup!

I wish I was able to pass some hope to you who are struggling in the market right now.

Kota na bes.

God bless us all.

LC and My Learning Chronicles

I was waiting for the stop light at Dela Rosa St. corner Amorsolo to give me a go so I could cross the street when I overheard two cute creatures talking loudly…

Girl: (she was holding her phone on her right hand while smashing Pagurl using her left) Tang*** mo bakla! naka go pa! Mamamatay ako nito eh! P%()#Q*%@ mo naman eh! (as if Pagurl was accountable for her life to be protected while she was focusing on her phone doing I dunno what…)
Pagurl: (s/he pointed out a lady who just crossed the street while the stop light was still red and was about to follow her) P*t*! Eh ung babae sinusundan ko… bobo eh! Tumawid naka gow chi! Ang bubu!
Girl: Hue hue hue! (she has a unique way of laughing)

They looked at me because maybe I was looking at them then Pagurl said this as if s/he was talking to me…

Pagurl: Diba noh? T#_(%)*@&*! Ang bob@ ni ate!
Me: Hahahahaha! (enjoying their cursing session of the world at the historical crossing of Makati Med)

So Paf, how is this related?

This scenario showed me a flash of what I learned in trading so far. Let’s talk about the characters…

The Girl: She was holding her phone without knowing her friend was taking her to a pit and upon realizing it, she cursed her friend for doing it so.

The Pagurl: S/he was about to follow the lady even s/he was aware of what’s happening around them. S/he was also cursing the lady about her decision to cross even though it was still a red light.

The Lady: She broke the rule by beating the red light even it could cost her life. Luckily, she successfully made it without scratches. The traffic officer just shouted at her and was about to ask her to sing the national anthem. She was just quick so she was not caught. Good for her.

Me: Excuse me please. I was just lurking and learning. 😛

Let’s take it into the trading perspective.

Those characters seem to be the stages of my learning pace in trading.

I was once the girl who didn’t know what I was doing and I depended my trades on the hypes of the market. Cursing the gurus and the guru wanna bees for my trades. P@$#)8^! po kayo na still nanghhype on peysbuk! LOL

Next, I became the Pagurl who was a bit cautious about hypes. I started to observe what others were doing wrong and right, also I was learning from them including my past experiences of what I’d seen on the market.

Last, I was once the lady who didn’t care if my rules and plans in my trades were met even it could cost me a lot of money maybe because of frustrations. For The Lady, she was able to cross successfully but me, I was at a loss and still recovering from it.The traffic officer was like the mentors we have now in the tribe. They keep on bashing, supporting and guiding us to be better traders in the long run. Love you mentors!

2017-01-25_23-52_Sparks.jpg

I guess I am having the transition of being The Lady to a better version of The Lady herself.

Why?

The lady didn’t care about what others would think about her decision. She decided on her own action because in that moment, there was a heavy traffic and anyone could really cross the street. She was brave enough to hear the bashing and cursing of others. She walked on her own, independently flipping her hair back and forth.

2017-01-25_23-53_Sparks.jpg

I want to be more of THE LADY 2.0 who can decide for herself… who can stand for herself about what she thought was the “right thing”… who doesn’t care about what others think and does what she thinks should be at her pace.

I should be heading to that.


So…

 Here’s my LC trade.

Why did I buy it in the first place?

lc-11

I bought LC because by looking at it the momentum was good, it broke 0.21 and was breaching the breakout. I was also finding a good base so that I could just sit back and relax if and only if it broke but as of now it hasn’t, so…

9kxqog6u

Because of the loss of momentum in LC and its thick resistance I decided to cut +-4% of that position even though it was within the range. That’s all.

BTX nalang if it breaks…

No worries, I was able to buy a good position right after.

2017-01-25_21-28_maybank-atr-kim-eng1.jpg

Pakota na please.

Ps.

Ano kaya nyare kay Girl, Pagurl at the Lady?


******EDITED******

lc

That is tragic if you have the same average as mine and still has this.

However, this is juicy for others… hmmm not for me.. breakout lang meeee… ayawww… breakout lang talaga promiseeeeee!!! 😀

MRS.GI

After a few months on hiatus, I finally now have my 1st successful trade in 2017.

2

1

I was all in when it broke the 4.00 petots level (I know… churee na, I know may magagalit dyan) I was ready naman po if the trade went the other way.

3.png

 

This was a TP play. It was already set at the 4.70 level. I was on GTC mode nadin.

4.png

However, I also had my trail stop if 4.70 did not get hit with the way I wanted it to be hit.

5

I know that I’m really weak in monitoring still, em doing my all bro!

2017-01-10_17-31_Inbox.jpg

Every after the market hours I write an email and send it to myself containing my port snap and the chart of the stock em holding, so that I will constantly be reminded about the reasons I still hold the trade. This is actually an idea of Boss Zee. It might seem crazy but it helped me to have discipline in my MRS.GI trade, believe me when it reached the 4.40 and when it even broke that level on the other day, I was really dying to sell at a 12% gain.

Well, I won’t always get the perfect level and no trader will (I guess so…) but the goal is to be consistent ayt?

Moreover, it’s good that we have the EXCALIBUR na!

2017-01-10_18-34_Rooting For Celeste.jpg

I love you creative people of ZFT!

MABUHAY PO KAYO!

Beyond Price Levels

Everyone had the chance, but there were only two people left standing.

“Wing Chun!!!Wing Chun!!! Wing Chun!!!” screamed the ZFT crowd.

A Wing Chun Master from the Bastards went to go on a battle with a Swabe Master from the Invicta batch to get the title for being the calmest trader to master the rock, paper, and scissors war and of course, it was also for the name of the pot money worth I don’t know. 😛

f56e03a8ca20309d904e4b32c36b396c12b5dbeb20f99d38e6166df1a928171f.jpg

Every one in the crowd could not hold back their support as they saw their Wing Chun Master went on a war. We witnessed some favoritism here as if we had placed a bet. hahaha

Kap was in the middle of everyone to control the ranging crowd so that the blood may not scatter on the battle field. Nice try Kap.

It was so intense.

Scores: 
Wing Chung Master -0
Swabe Trader-3

As the poker faced Wing Chun Master was about to be defeated…

Sir Lancelot said, “Wait! Wait! There was something magical on how this match was done. Let’s have one last blow!” 

Hoping that Master Wing Chun would regain his strenght, there came the last blow…

tumblr_nxhtskXB5c1tnswyho2_500.gif

Everyone got their face with disappointments for the odds of the crown were not in their favor. It was a cut loss for our ever dear Wing Chun Master. OOhhhhh! There… there… You will always be forever in our hearts. 😥

Congratulations Master Swabe! That was indeed a great game!


A lot of ZFTs came from a far just to take part in the first ever ZFT Christmas Party. They were all good looking wearing their best OOTDs.

imageedit_3_2513723816

Hey folks, I was wearing white there. Guess who. 😛

Even though I was a shy-type kiddo, I met a baker, a student, a cook, an IT, an engineer, an educator, an OFW, an organizer, a manager, a doctor, a businessman, full time traders, a father and a lot more. I told you, I was a shy type, yeap! I met different faces that I didn’t imagine I would be meeting. Faces with different backgrounds but heading towards the same goal, that’s absolutely to be a consistent profitable trader with a heart coz if not, I don’t know what is. ❤

Still, I couldn’t fathom that I am a part of it. A part of something greater, a group that molds life, imparts values, and most of all, a family.

2016-12-26_23-30_zeefreaks

I cried.

I initially thought it was money that keeps this group alive but it’s not, absolutely not. I tell you, there are still some of us struggling in finding ourselves given that Ms. Market likes to dive for months. There are still some of us losing at the same time learning, and realizing a lot deep within ourselves but then again finding fortress under the guidance of the mentors who had been where we, newbees exactly are, is a great relief.

It’s all about the passion, the perseverance, the urge of each member to survive and live with the lovable market that we trade. It’s all about the people who support and believe in the values of The Tribe to build a better community of traders trading with a purpose. No recos, bulongs, gurus, hypes nor tips would be heard from anyone. I haven’t seen Boss Zee being furiously angry and I don’t wish to be, but those things would probably make him become and no one of us would dare to trigger.

Well, you would only hear some updates about the latest love teams of the tribe and that’s all.

gay-wedding-GIF-cake-cutting-Liberty-Hotel.gif

It was indeed a great night to remember. I wish to witness more cakes to be cut next year and the years to come.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year folks!

 

The IMPACT

One evening in the bastards’ hideout,  Kapitan Kidlat sent us this message.

2016-12-20_14-58_Bastards of ZFT.jpg

Every word in this message impacted me and gave me the urge to grab it. Beforehand, my mentor and I were already talking about this. However, since my means already got its TP, I was not able to register. I pumped my mentor a lot of messages to help me and so he did.

I met Kap in the Rift Live, we shared the same table without me knowing it was her. After the event, ZFTs met for the very first time. Kapitan was introduced by the Big Boss at the last part of the meeting. We were all shocked that it was her, even I, because I  asked her who she was in the hallway and she said that I would find it out later.

the_gathering_by_andreasrocha-d35a5f0

She looked calm and easy going with a touch of mystery. My mentor was really curious about her. They were all curious about what she was like, how tall she was and how serious she was when she spoke. I realized that we met her differently. I met her not in the trading world with no fluctuating charts allowed. We first crossed paths on a lax trip where every ZFT enjoyed the company of finally just being together.

I didn’t see her as a strict, precise and systematic mentor they described her to be, not after I was granted the slot she had given me through my ever good looking mentor, IMG.

2016-12-20_15-46_Bastards of ZFT.jpg

I was stunned that she mentioned my name and it was me whom she had chosen. I was even more amazed on the day she led the seminar. I saw a different Kapitan Kidlat. I guess, it was the Kapitan my mentor had met.

How is Kapitan’s IMPACT, you ask?

I can only speak as to what I have seen towards her. She is full of discipline, passion in trading and teaching her craft. You will certainly like to be her if you’re a fan girl of awesome traders like me. She takes everything seriously and you would not want to ask her stupid questions on Skype or on FB messenger.

Yes, you’re warned. 😛

The Rift with Kapitan Kidlat

She was able to emphasize the proximity level of what trading really is for her and with that she was able to come up with a flexible system suited for her as a momentum and swing trader. Yes, she’s a momentum and swing trader. She has discovered herself deeply that shapes the system she has now. From her schedule on an average trading day up to her never ending cycle of how she trades, everything is seriously systematic.

2016-12-20_18-04_IMPACT_SUMMARY_KAPITAN.jpg
You are welcome!

Kap’s withdrawal schedule of her small, medium and big fund is also programmed accordingly. Her mindsets in trading a downtrend vs. trading an uptrend are remarkably different. It reminds me of the quote, “How you do anything is how you do everything” by T Harv Eker.

She is the epitome of discipline.

It’s so her so for the boys out there  who would take a look at her, good luck!

giphy.gif

It also made me think that she has successfully made everything in trading her comfort zone. It’s like everything is automatic. Being committed to trading is no longer an issue for her because it is that builds her.

“You have to know the rules of the game and play better than everyone else.”

Kapitan Kidlat

She has discovered herself deep within, her flaws, her strengths, her potentials as she listens to the whispers of the market. She has mastered retrospection of seeing the reasons of taking such trading actions.

“That’s what makes her dangerous in the markets, emotionless.”

Boss Zee

After all the moments I had failed and realized that discipline and focus were the keys, I met her. She showed me more of discovering the realm of myself to continuously seek for my very own system. She keeps on inspiring me and all the ZFTs out there to do more of what we could give. We are a work in the process and we will always be for Ms. Market throws different moments every time. We are aware that following our rules is not really the soul of having successful trades. Like Kap, it’s rooted into how we create those rules given the mindset that we have which gives us the trust to follow them consistently and the process of making those rules will soon become the system that we have always heard a trader should absolutely have.
