I'm the DIY Trading Expert.

I used to have a column on a DIY blog for home improvement projects. There were some small problems with people misreading my directions. Furniture collapsed. Plumbing caught fire. Buildings fell over. A few people died in ways my lawyer won't let me talk about.

Now I spend my time figuring out how to do all those things that experts are supposed to know. Then I make simple step-by-step guides to each one.

No one who's followed my advice about how to do things in their FX trading platform has been killed, yet. It's a perfect record and I'm very proud of it.
