Full Circle Completed of the 2014 Forex Success Program

As the trading year of 2014 nears its end, Forex traders around the globe are already preparing for the next trading year of 2015. What new targets will you aim for? What new goals will you try to achieve? What method in trading would you like to improve? The sky is the limit!

But… before you move on to setting those new targets, it is a part of the process to sufficiently evaluate, reflect, learn from the past, improve, etc. Then you can move on and set up new goals for 2015. It is important to adequately address the current year and learn lessons from it. This post explains why and focuses on giving you a guideline for the above.

FIRST THINGS FIRST

Back in January 2014, your first step of the plan for success in 2014 was to set up realistic expectations. Read the article from (almost) a year ago here.

It is important to evaluate whether those expectations have been met, and specifically to measure whether last year’s goals been met. Why would this be an important task?

This allows you to learn from the past and incorporate your new experiences and knowledge for realistic expectations and goals in 2015. Basically, you want to measure if your SMART* goals of a year ago were indeed met and then understand why yes or not (*SMART stands for specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and timeliness). This process will allow you to understand how and what improvements can be made in the future.

The following questions are good to keep in mind:

  1. Did you meet your (some of your) goals?
  2. Did you meet your (some of your) sub goals?
  3. What were the reasons for reaching them (partially) or not all?
  4. How can you learn from that to make better SMART goals next time?
  5. What can you do in 2015 to ensure SMART goals are better formulated and/or have a better chance of being hit?

How well did you meet your targets? On a scale from 1 to 10, what grade would you give yourself? (10 is when goals have been fully met and 1 is totally not hit) What grade do you think others would give you? This could be different than what you give yourself as you tend to be more tougher or easier on yourself than others.

REVIEWING LAST YEAR

Before moving on to the new trading year, you also want to revisit some of the work you have done a year ago and see if it is still valid (click here for last year’s post). You want to check the following things:

  • Has your motivational driver changed in any way?
  • Is your current situation different than a year ago?
    • How does any difference or lack of difference compared to a year ago impact you?
  • Have you added or do you want to add any non-breakable rules?
  • Has your daily routine changed in any way and did you update it in your trading plan?

The next step on the list is to evaluate whether any changes are present in your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and weaknesses (SWOT). Has 2014 changed your SWOT analysis? It is time for a yearly update. You also want to take the time to review whether your mindset and view on the trading has changed. Read more info on SWOT and mindset here.

Last but not least, there is one more important step before moving on and focusing on 2015. The year 2014 has undoubtedly had one or even a couple of:

  • Great fantastic trades;
  • Horrible blunders or costly mistakes;
  • Interesting but missed setups;
  • Fantastic trends that you did not trade;
  • Tight consolidations that you traded too much.

Forget them and reset your mind to be fully focused on the new goals!

GOALS FOR NEXT YEAR 2015

With a thorough review of the 2014 trading year behind you, it is time to move on and think about 2015 expectations and set up new SMART goals for the New Year.

With the new experiences and knowledge you have acquired in 2014, it is highly likely that this process will be different from a year ago.

This is a good development and will increase the chances of reaching your goals in 2015.

What do you expect in the year 2015? What are your main goals for the new trading year? What improvements have you spotted in 2014 that could be useful for 2015?

Let us know down below what you are thinking, and write down a quick chat.

If you are curious about the market direction, take a look at this blog post for my predictions and expectations in 2015.

With that said, I wish you everyone merry and happy Holidays. Take some time off too, besides planning, as this is good time to recharge the batteries and get ready for the new trading year. Next week the market will be a slow market anyhow…

Thank you for sharing and wish you Happy Hunting!

    Review:I would give this 0 stars if I could. I have purchased two products from these people and neither one performed how they advertised in the webinar. Their latest program is a total joke. I asked for a refund and they said I had to try it out for 6 months. I did contact my credit card company to try to get a dispute going since those have to be done within 2 months. Im pretty confident they told me 6 months because they know my credit card company will only process disputes within 60 days of transaction date. At any rate, stay away from this company. They seem to only care about making money with junk products and do not care if people lose money with their programs/software.

    Review:Investment Copier lost 40% of my account in less than a year. After I did all they asked in order to get my refund, they have still not sent my refund, responding to my emails by continually saying that there are unforeseen delays. Three weeks ago they said the check is ready and that I should just confirm my mailing address, which I did, but (surprise!) still no check. And they’ve stopped responding to my emails. Very unethical. They’re still advertising new programs, trying to hook in more suckers to scam.

  • Ripped Off

    Hello Anna,
    I am actually just trying to get my boys $100 back from this Rip off website. It’s a shame that Casey Stubbs and Tradersedge don’t honour their own refund policy. So i have taking it upon myself to discredit them both till they repay what they stole. Its about principle, not just the $100. They will delete this post like all the rest later tonight. But what they don’t realise every post made here is being copied to other websites.

  • !4yr old Ripped OFF

    If you are like most traders, you’ve been learning how to trade from scamming educators like Casey Stubbs and Winnersedge. You have to stop and think who you’ve been learning from. Have they showed you any real live accounts over yrs of trading that has a positive result. I bet they havn,t. Most likely they don’t even trade, or never have been profitable in the markets. Thats the reality out there. And no difference with Winnersedge. And yet they claim that they’re your ticket to incredible profits. How likely is that? I’ll let you decide how profitable that is.

  • Daylon

    Casey why do you keep removing people’s complaints about scams that you guys promised. Just be honest and treat people right.

  • Ripped off

    Am also going to write an extensive report on you and send to the IRS. Since you scam and steal from others lets see whats happens once they receive and act on the information provided. Money laundering, theft, and all the rest. They will go right through your company.

    Merry Xmas Ho Ho Ho.

  • Paul got Ripped Off

    WOW,

    My son also git ripped off by Casey Stubbs and hi crew. No refund, claims they tried to phone me, more bulshit. Daylon, start posting how much of a scam Stubbs and Winnersedge is all over the internet.

  • Daylon

    it’s very good to show screenshots when services promised was not delivered. Also the phone number on your website never worked.
    And I never heard form anybody from your team like you said. Is this type of things that makes me RED FLAG this company.

  • Thanks for reaching out. The signals and the strike trader are both working and not only that they are providing great performance.

    So what that means is that we have not done a good job helping you to get these to work. I am going to check in with my support team right now to make sure they have correctly handled your case. You will be hearing from me again.

    I am posting a screenshot of the last month of our service in which we have made 2111 pips in the last 30 days.

  • Daylon

    Well, I have big problems when I sign in for the strike trader and the services never worked. Registered for the signal services and never worked. On the signal dashboard was never updated. Ask for my refund now you guys said I can get it.

  • Daylong can you please elaborate? We spent hundreds of hours during 2014 with our clients that were in the success program last year. We had great reviews during this time.

  • Daylon

    do not trust this company guys
