Like many of us, Ripster’s foray into trading wasn’t a straight path. Like many, he tried to learn by hopping from one chat room to another, learning everything he could from various gurus and other successful traders. However, he soon realized that true success would only come from his own conviction. He had to find what worked for him, His guiding principle? “Believe YOU are unparalleled”. This realization led him to develop his system, The EMA Cloud System which he invented and diligently journaled on Twitter. His transparent approach of sharing before-and-after trades using his system quickly gained traction.
He wrote down everything, from every mistake and loss to the emotions that accompany them. He still screenshots and logs everything using his renowned Discord journal method. Early in his trading journey, he even created an “Emotions Tracker Excel” and an emotional log that has been widely appreciated by his followers. Ripster delves deep into the psychology and emotions behind trading, teaching many to believe in themselves.
