My name is Adam Spencer Duskes the dog is my nephew Hank. I started trading currency around 10 years ago in late 2008. What I thought was going to be a piece of cake or walk in the park became a life long journey which is still going strong. I always loved money and still do and when I came across Forex or currency trading I had the burning desire to be the best trader on the planet. Now for those of you who know or don’t that is much easier said then done. Trading currency truly is a skill and self discipline is an ingredient you must posses in order to stand the test of time. There really is no easy money here or get rich quick its more like a slow and steady wins the race type deal.
Now one of the first tools I came across was the dailyfx economic calendar and I had a hard time managing the data so I approached an old friend of mine that had done programming for me in the past and asked him if he can build and iphone app. He said he did not know how but he was willing to learn and that he did.
We went on to build the FxWingman app which is not really much these days however we do have plans to rebuild it. At the time it was an economic calendar app with a way you can rate the flow of economic new coming out on a daily basis.
As time when on I became aware of online schools that teach price action which is the reading of price charts specifically reading the daily price charts and using price action signals to predict the markets next move. I am no teacher so I won’t even attempt to teach or explain but if you are interested here are a few links to schools who teach the art of price action.

You can learn a lot from the guys above as they all have so much to offer. I just wanted to put these resources out there if you want to check them out and possibly learn to trade price action as well. Now back to how Killerpips.com was created.
So as time went on and I became better at my price action trading ability I decided to focus strictly on that because managing economic data seemed like an endless job and at the end of the day the data left its thumbprint on the charts which over time became easier to understand an interpret.
