Core Principles

Act As Owners: LBB is an owner who builds businesses for the long term, with significant personal capital committed by its founders. Our decisions as owners are guided by what will result in the best answer for long-term growth.

Grow & Acquire: Combining organic growth with a strategic acquisition program is a proven and powerful path to extraordinary results. LBB pursues a growth strategy that combines investments in organic growth opportunities and complementary acquisitions.

Re-invest & Compound: Compounded growth is a powerful force. LBB re-invests cash flow for growth for as long as attractive return on capital opportunities are available.

Leonidas Trading Group, LLC is a private group focusing on trading in the FOREX markets using LeonidasTrading Method. FOREX trading requires knowledge, discipline and experience. Here are some of my trades and screenshots from the private trading room with my students.

All trades are posted days or hours ahead and my goal is to trade to within a few pips of a reversal with nearly 100% accuracy on 4 hour and daily bars. Some setups are changed or canceled in the private trading room.

I use personal proprietary currency composite index charts to forecast each pairs' movement. Once the general trade setup or trend has been identified on the composite index charts I look for one of the 25 patterns that I currently trade (7 types with a-g classes) which sometimes allow me to enter swing trades on 4h charts to within a pip or two.

This is my own method and I don't use any indicators or oscillators. I scale out 3 times so I take profits off the table while the trade is moving towards the final target. I take both trend and counter-trend setups. Though counter-trend trades can be a little bit more risky.

As a trader you must educate yourself about the markets you are trading. Then you must track trading ideas, patterns to see what works and what doesn't, how often and why or why not so you can develop your trading method and style that fits your life, personality and lifestyle along with risk tolerance and realistic goals.

To give myself a mental edge in the forex markets I practice daily mediation and mindful living and being. My mind stays sharp and focused.

Trading is a skill and an artistic mental game and pips is how we keep the score. Wishing you success, health, wealth and prosperity beyond your understanding!
