it’s been quite a while since i last wrote about my trading tests. it was in september last year when i promised to write as soon as there are some news. well, testing mathematical formulas in real time trading, be it virtual or real money, is a long process before coming to definite conclusions. i had quite a success in making money with virtual currencies, but in finding an investor who would trade real money with my assistance hasn’t been a success at all. investors want to know too much, while i need to keep some parts of my mathematical strategy to myself, to be part of the deal and not casted away. it’s not easy to find a compromise between proving the point without a shadow of a doubt and keeping some trade secrets.
before coming to conclusion that my formulas do work, it wasn’t without hurdles. the testing accounts which i mentioned in my previous posts on trading became inaccessible few months ago. in fact three of my android devices crashed irreparably (all of them during a few weeks period, one after another), thus i bought three new android devices to make sure i will be able to continue working on my projects. but i did not succeed to access the previous testing accounts anymore regardless the access codes were nicely backed up. neither it was possible to recover/reset the accounts because the metatrader4 and metatrader5 demo accounts do not have an email or a phone registration.
never mind, i didn’t waste time and opened new testing (demo) accounts. after making some profit and continuing the tests to increase the profit i lost access to these accounts as well. then i decided not to keep any demo accounts on trading — as soon as i arrived to a reasonably positive balance, making between 1% to 5% profit (in average it took only couple of weeks of trading time while making tens of trades a day), i deleted the accounts and opened new ones. like this i continued and am continuing my tests now. so far there has been over 20 different demo accounts where i made profit, only one of the test accounts is open right now to continue till i will arrive at positive balance.
apart of forex currencies i also began test-trading gold and silver. so far i have a success, but from my earlier studies about stock market i remember that trading precious metals brings on heavy taxes, thus i’m trading gold and silver just from mathematical curiosity. my math works with the same success on trading gold and silver.. even better than i expected.. but at this time it’s early to be confident about trading precious metals because i began trading these very recently. in fact my formulas should work the same on trading anything on stock market when there’s sufficient volatility.

well, i finally have uploaded all of the planned stories (so far) to the YE podcast but not without an interesting development. the second sound file from the video story “after the army” (part 2 of 4) had disappeared from my device’s internal memory and i had to copy it from backup files. the video story has been on the YE youtube page most popular (among the stories of my life) — i talk there about the corruption i met back in my country (now part of europe) and the reasons i escaped from there.
well, i mentioned in one of my books and perhaps also on my blogs somewhere, that couple of years ago when i made many calls to different countries around the world on the same day, to my friends, just to use up my international calling credit, i got an incoming call from a north american number. it turned out to be from interpol — they asked me what was going on, that why was i making so many calls. to my response of having many friends i got warned to watch out. in the light of that surveillance happening to me i’m not actually surprised why the above mentioned file disappeared from my tablet’s memory. it’s nice to know though that someone cares about me so much.
with a bit of thinking and further tries i was finally able to upload the sound files to my YE podcast. the technical problem was (and still is) that the files are not possible to download from the sd card, only from the internal memory. anyway, some of my stories are up now — these are from my videos which i shot several months ago and posted on youtube, so if you want to see me telling the stories instead of just listening the audio then you can view the videos on my YE youtube page.. http://youtube.com/c/YouthExtension
as of the YE podcast here’s the link to my YE “show”.. https://castbox.fm/va/2191910
the link should forward automaticallly to the castbox app after going first to web browser, or if you don’t have an app then to the download option of the app. in case if the link isn’t working, or if you don’t want to install the app, then just go to the https://castbox.fm page and search for “youthextension” (one word) — there you can see my podcast and access my uploaded files to listen.
in the app you can boost the volume of the file and slow down / speed up the playback.
perhaps there are currently some technical changes going on with the castbox.fm service.. while verifying my previous wordpress post i discovered that the links to my podcast give errors in all my android devices now.. yesterday the links worked on some devices at least. if fact the castbox description/help info tells that the service is in development and some new options are coming soon, thus lets just wait till the bugs get fixed.
so far you can find my podcast by going to https://castbox.fm and typing into the search the keyword “youthextension” (make sure the words are together). the same you can do on their app.
i’m continuing to test the castbox platform ( castbox.fm ) for my “show” as they call it there, my podcast. i wasn’t able to upload sound files, only to record directly with my android device.. some technical issues on uploading pre-recorded sound files. i haven’t given up and wrote to customer service.. now waiting for reply. i like the castbox platform, regardless of the trouble, because it has an option of an on-screen widget to listen podcasts and you don’t need to install an app or subscribe — this is important — i don’t want to force anyone to go through the hassle of subscribtion to a service or installing an app they may not want to install. with castbox you can listen directly on their webpage.
my YE podcast..
during the tests the web version podcast worked on two of my android devices, only the samsung tab s5e tablet has not allowed it (in fact not the tablet itself but the browsers on the tablet), for some reason the link forwards to an error page of the castbox website. there’s nothing i can do about it if this happens on your device.. in that case you will need to install the castbox app but you don’t need to subscribe.
