Why I’m Launching a Trend Following Signal Service
Traders want to make consistent profits. Copying trades of a backtested trading system is easier than figuring it yourself. The trend following signal service I’m launching arose from the struggles I hear from traders.

If you’ve been following my posts for a while you probably remember that I started a Discord server several months ago.
Based on what people shared, I realized that a lot of newbies are being misled by day-trading ‘gurus’ and start off scalping tiny wiggles. I keep saying that day-trading is a fetish and a dangerous allure. It’s no wonder why newbies end up licking their wounds one after another.
In the community, I ensured that day-trading was strictly forbidden because I wanted us to focus on following the big trends — making the big money if you will.
Instill My Trend Following Mindset
It served as a refuge for newbie traders who got hurt previously. Day-trading ‘gurus’ are spineless marketers for which I have little respect. I was shocked that so many fall prey to their unethical scams.
A whole mindset shift is required to succeed in trend following. Trading big trends can be mind-blowing if you’ve been chanting the day-trading mantra all day long, but it will become the most obvious thing to do. The trend is your friend.
You trade stress-free with far less effort and make far more money with the big trends. Day-trading simply doesn’t work.
Once traders witnessed my trading results live and saw what kind of profits I make, people got quite interested in my trend following system and asked how they could trade certain market scenarios.
I went ahead and uploaded a detailed charting setup guide that served as a blueprint for everyone. I received direct messages asking how to trade based off that blueprint, and how to use this or that tool.
Nevertheless, it was still difficult to grasp the entirety of my trend following system. It was such a novel approach to them. After all, it is the result of years of my own trial and error and you can’t simply replicate that swiftly. I had to provide individual guidance. Without realizing, I somehow morphed into a trend following trading mentor.
Share Trend Following Signals Live
We chatted both privately and publicly which allowed me to explain my actions step by step. We discussed the price action in real-time and I pointed out where to take trades to instill hands-on knowledge.
For example, I posted a short signal for the Nasdaq-100 on February 25:
We profited together and I improved the trend following system further. Long story short, it was a lot of work but we had a blast. Those who trusted my trading strategies and copied my trades made handsome profits.
To be transparent with the community I regularly shared my own trading results. Here’s what I had made from the above short signal:
Democratize a Trend Following Mindset
While nurturing the community on Discord, I worked on a new service where anyone can receive live Nasdaq-100 trades and copy my performance in their trading account.
I want to democratize my trend following system and let anyone succeed in trading — without stress.
Some of you may not even be interested in learning my trend following system but would rather just copy its trades. You can skip the learning curve altogether. If it’s technically possible, why not let more traders succeed financially?
That’s my idea behind launching a new trend following signal service, called NQ Signal. It trades the E-mini Nasdaq-100 (NQ) and it’s one of the few out there that focuses on multi-week to multi-month trends. No day-trading at all.
If you want to get rid of the day-trading and scalping nonsense and ride the big trends without stress, NQ Signal is a trading signal service you should check out.
