The scamster Adrian Shiroma apparently has a new broker. I’m not too sure what happened to MitsuiFX.com, but that domain is now redirecting to Shatori.com. This is just the latest development in the ongoing story of this “Spanish” scam. The original report that I wrote on Adrian can be found here. Then I found out […]

Back in January, I wrote a post about Adrian Shiroma and why I thought (and still think) that he does not actually exist and is a Forex scam. Well, thanks to an alert Trading Heroes reader, Mr. Shiroma is back in the news again. This time it is because he is telling people to deposit their hard earned money into a broker called MitsuiFX. Here is what I dug up on MitsuiFX and the evidence is pretty convincing that this is also a total scam.

My biggest pet peeve is all of the Forex trading scams out there. Forex is one of the best markets to trade and these slimeballs take people’s money before they ever have a chance at becoming successful. The reason that there are so many scams in this market is because Forex was unregulated for a […]
I was talking to one of my friends who trades stocks and he mentioned that he watches the stocks that he is trading on Twitter to see what people are saying about those stocks. Then he uses that as a gauge for market sentiment and is one of the factors that he takes into account […]
UPDATE: Google shut down Google+ because nobody was using it. Get the details here. I have been on Google+ for a few months now and I must admit that I like it better than Facebook. I still use Facebook because it is the 800 pound Gorilla of social media, but G+ does deliver a different […]
In my first review of the Metarader 5 iPhone app, wasn’t too impressed. It was slow and didn’t have too many charting features. Not that it was terrible though. In reality, that is pretty much par for the course. Most apps can give you good quotes and a few decent charts, but that is about […]

Doh! Have you ever spent 10 minutes setting up one chart only to accidentally delete it immediately afterwards? That has happened to me several times in the past, usually in the middle of trading. Instead of seeing if there was an undo button command I would go about rebuilding the chart as soon as possible […]

A couple of Newsletter subscribers asked about installing automated backtesting strategies in Forex Tester 2, So I decided to make a video.

I had a question from a reader about how to change the leverage that is used during backtesting. This is a great question and I don’t think they go over it in their instructional videos. The leverage does not need to be exact to the penny, but it must give an accurate representation of actual […]

Since then, I have become significantly more sophisticated (cough, cough) and I thought that I would do a video for you […]
And in case you were wondering, I won’t be giving you indicators that already come with Metatrader. I thought that it would be good to build up a resource of indicators that you could pull from and possibly incorporate into your trading. This goes without saying, bu try them in a demo account first. If […]

This is a great feature in Forex Tester 2 that you may not have known about. I only just started using it recently and it allows me to see where my system stops working and how volatile it is. These are two metrics that are not immediately evident when looking at the final testing results. […]
Recently, I wanted to have a Metatrader indicator that sent an alert every time a currency pair hit today’s or yesterday’s S3 or R3 pivot point. I know some programming, but I do not know the Metatrader programming language. Therefore, instead of investing hundreds of hours on figuring out how to program an indicator I […]
