If you’ve been trading forex for a while now, welcome to my blog. This is where I will share some of my insights in trading forex.

My name is Mark So and I started trading currencies in 1998 (not on line) primarily buying and selling the USD in moderate amounts.

It was only in 2004 when I started trading Currencies online (and not very profitable at that mind you) I started trading online late because as many of you may know, the internet was not very reliable back then plus trading currencies online was pretty new and untested. So while I was researching more on it and still buying up USD and keeping it in the banks until I was ready to sell, I started building and developing businesses and honing my teaching skills.

In 2005 I started to trade Forex online with consistent gains, no longer would I win some and lose all, I was actually making a decent amount of returns.

In 2006 I started teaching Forex all thanks to my wife Jhoanna. She was the one who convinced me to teach Forex. I was honestly a reluctant teacher because forex was in my mind one of the hardest things to teach. But in hindsight, my wife was as usual, correct. I realized from the very first class I conducted that this was something that I would love to continue doing.

In 2007, I was approached by FXCM to become their Referring Broker in the Philippines, which I accepted. This was also the year that I created my online forex education site called Monsterpips.com. This site sold a specific trading strategy called “Inverse Hedging”.

In 2008, this year, FXCM officially appointed me and my company Businessmaker Academy to become FXCM’s training partner in the Philippines. This is also the year I created Forex Club Manila an exclusive Forum based membership site to help my students with their forex trading careers by providing them with my live forex signals, weekly currency forecasts, members only videos, and trading insights.

Today, I’m glad to say, I have taught approximately 200 enthusiasts in the Philippines and about 150 more internationally. And with all of your help and your kind word of mouth, I do hope to continue this.

Best regards and Monsterpips to All!
