LEE "FOREX" MEL
Owner of several financial websites, most notably livecharts.co.uk and forexrate.co.uk amongst many others. Oversee development and content creation for sites including news publishing, data feeds and design.
Active trader of stocks, forex and commodities for over 10 years and avid market news follower. My main vice is trading the EUR/USD, and have had reasonable success over the years from simple trend trading in swings over a 2 to 3 day timeframe. I tend to keep away from short term forex trading as it doesn't suit my personality and I usually lose. Which obviously isn't good!
My main full time job/pastime now is web development, with trading in between. Web development, seo and building online relationships has been one of the best things I have pursued over the last 6 or 7 years. It has allowed me the freedom to enjoy my trading without pressure of making income (which in turn has helped me make better decisions) and given me way of taking my mind off the markets. The markets at times can take over ones life if you get too involved.
