Hi, I'm Peter Rose, Founder of Longwood Currency Trading, and welcome to my LCT Currency Trading Blog About page.
From a life standpoint, I have a B.S. in Physics with almost a minor in Mathematics, a 33 year career as a senior software engineer doing the analysis, design, and development of complex internet based business applications, as well as having 40 years experience as a real estate investor.
My interests span a diverse and exciting range: I have been in the martial arts since 1968, and continue instructing through the Rose School of Karate, and as a 9th Degree Black Belt Senior Grandmaster of C&S Self Defense Association.
I enjoy the creative process of writing both fiction and nonfiction, the challenge of writing complex web based business computer programs, reading many different genres, software applications design and development through my Riverside Software Development, writing (educational, novels, currency trading, martial arts), concepts of business and business process, real estate investment through my firm Christian Shores Investment Company, sailing, backgammon, cooking, history, Eastern philosophy and some Western, psychology, meditation, and science, and since 2012 trading foreign currencies through my firm, Longwood Currency Trading.
If I am not happy, healthy, terrific, and calm then I could not influence others in a positive manner. I try to follow the basic Hopi principle of life: "Seek the way to conduct our lives in friendship and peace, without anger, without greed, without wickedness of any kind, among ourselves or in our association with any people."
You can also get an idea of my approach to teaching currency trading on my LCT Education Page discussion at Longwood Currency Trading, and certainly though the many postings in this blog.
The motivation for me to create this blog is to support and form a connection to my FOREX foreign currency trading firm Longwood Currency Trading, my video presence on YouTube, and the many books and courses that I have written.
Though I do not have an interactive blog where guests can post comments or ask questions, I sincerely hope my posts are thought provoking and informative, and not only help those who engage with them, but are also appreciated as sincere communications of my interest in and passion for currency trading.
In the event this is not the case for you, then the option is to simply ignore me. And I'm quite fine with that. However, if you'd like to get in contact with me, please do so via email, and I'll try to get back to you as soon as I can.
Please note that in my posts I sometimes refer to books I've written, or courses I have created. Of the 30 or so books I've written, 15 deal with FOREX trading, and there are several FOREX trading courses I've developed.
I enjoy the creative process of writing, but not the final editing or marketing, and so the material remains unpublished, and sometimes not quite complete.
I do not want to run a merch or training business, but if you have interest in getting more information or purchasing anything from me, or about mentoring and course information, throw me an email as to what your interests are, and maybe I can put something together for you.
I sincerely hope you enjoy and benefit from the postings on my blog site. Keep in mind, though, that it's all about my trading thoughts and my experiences. In no way should you try anything I mention unless you've had that material presented in a personal mentoring session. Otherwise, all of this stuff is easily taken out of context resulting in not so favorable outcomes.
I've been studying martial arts since 1968, and am a practicing Grandmaster with students who have been with me 30 and 40 years. As a result, I am a very aggressive speculator with no tears when I lose. Losing is part of the process, and just reading about this stuff is insufficient to prepare you to try to duplicate anything I talk about here, on YouTube, or anywhere.
If you want that level of involvement, you've got to get a mentor. I'm not in the training business. I'm retired and very comfortable in my deckchair. It cost me over $40,000 to learn what I'm talking about here, but reading this stuff won't make you a winner. You have to get someone to help you separate the chafe from the wheat for that.
Do some research and find someone you can trust to work with you. Whatever that training cost is it will be worth it to you, because it will be peanuts in comparison to what you could lose trying to learn this stuff on your own.
I originally failed because with a B.S. degree in Physics, a 33 year career as a Senior Software Engineer, and being a millionaire real estate investor I created complex solutions to trading because that's how you solve complex problems. It took enormous losses for me to finally see the simplicity of how to trade.
I now trade simply, and when I do take on a student I teach them how to trade simply. Use the posts in this blog to look at trading a little differently than what you might have seen before. Use that information to better gauge who you want to partner with to help you become a better trader.
I enjoy the intellectual challenge of currency trading, and the collaborative environment among the folks I've worked with. I formed Longwood Currency Trading not only to encapsulate my own trading, but also to share what I've learned and experienced with others.
I'd be happy to chat with you about the viability of the currency markets, trading principles, or the educational opportunities I offer.
