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