BluFX Trader Q&A: Catalin P
Is BluFX your main source of income or do you have a job like most people?
I do have another job as well, but my goal is to be a full-time trader by the end of the year.
Did you think the BluFX opportunity was too good to be true? And if so, what made you take that next step?
I was familiar with projects like that but to be honest BluFX is the first prop company that I decided to join. My goal is to become a professional trader.
What package did you subscribe to and why?
I subscribed to the Pro package because of the starting capital and because it means I can hold positions overnight.
How did you trade before BluFX?
Before BluFX I always traded using my own funds, but not on a big scale.
How do you trade now?
Now with BluFX because of low leverage I can be more disciplined, which works to my advantage as most traders lack discipline.
What’s been your biggest lesson so far being a BluFX trader?
The biggest lesson was that BluFX encouraged me to be patient and disciplined.
How do you keep focused?
I keep focused by planning my next attack on the market.
Have you ever hit your drawdown limit, and if so, how did you bounce back?
I reached my drawdown limit many years ago when I was just a beginner and thought that trading would be an easy way to make money. Over the years I learned to make trading plans and stick to them.
What do you look for before entering the market?
To enter the market I just follow a specific pair in my watching list. I guess my eye became trained to know when to enter the market, and when there will be a strong impulse at a specific level.
What’s your main goal while trading with BluFX?
My main goal with BluFX is to reach a starting capital of 1 million dollars.
How has trading impacted you as an individual? Has it changed you in any way?
Trading opened so many doors for me. One of the best things is having the time to spend with my family, now that I'm not stuck in a 9-to-5 job for the rest of my life!
What advice do you have for other people thinking about joining BluFX?
My advice to other people who are thinking of joining BluFX is to never give up their dreams and to always be patient.
