About



Shut Up and Trade chronicles the trading ideas and lessons learned in my current journey of trading stocks, FX and indices full-time. The name of this blog was inspired by this meme:


Pretty much how most of us retail traders act in the market -- hopefully that money returns with even more money to trade another day, instead of being eaten alive by the institutional traders or some sleazy brokers after getting carried away by some hype or FOMO (like those rabid cryptoheads who bought BTC @18k during late 2017, and also the current equity fanatics during late 2019 to Q1 2020-- but we'll see [edit 3/10/2020: Yep.]).

I guess I'm one of the lucky few who never experienced blowing up an account. I do still have a many things to learn about the markets though especially they change  a lot over time--- so keep in mind that the trading ideas and opinions expressed here don't guarantee wins with 100% certainty. Always do your own research and develop your own trading "playbook".

The main goal of this blog is to show the reality that trading isn't a get rich quick endeavor-- trading properly (and profitably in the long run) requires risk-management to consistently grow our live accounts, and even use some of the gains to fund or expand to other legit businesses (instead of trying to impress people with fake lifestyle and such, with hopes of luring some gullible people into buying some scammy trading course and signals).

Stay humble, and keep the positive vibe and numbers going folks!

Cheers!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Aiza Belle is a day trader who loves analyzing patterns not only in charts but also the human psyche. She is a graduate of BS Business Administration and Accountancy in University of the Philippines Diliman, and a Certified Public Accountant and Real Estate Appraiser. She started trading local stocks (PH) back in 2012, then added forex by 2014, and oil and metals by 2015. She decided to quit the corporate world to trade full-time in 2015. She was performing well consistently until the US elected a new President who tweeted a lot and disrupted her trades by 2017-- a wild card and not even remotely incorporated in her trading strategies. By late 2018, after a lot of tweaking and trial and error, she finally started recovering.

During off-trading hours, she's currently busy tinkering lines of codes in MQL4 and Python, and managing her small businesses. Her other interests include machine learning, creating digital content, playing video games and painting.
