Dear All,

I am writing this post today with a heavy heart. Sadly we have received some tragic news regarding Patrick - "Major Magnum". We have been told by one of MM's closest friends that Major Magnum passed, back in July 2018 after being diagnosed with a serious illness at the age of 49.

As we know, Major Magnum's real name was Patrick and he was a prolific blogger at T2W and just to name but a few websites. He was a brilliant Forex scalper and we were all lucky enough to call him our dear friend.

Sometimes, traders posts appear on the radar and they become our over night super stars within their own rights. Patrick AKA Major Magnum provided us all with on and off topic posts, brilliant trades and market analysis but moreover was a wonderful and dear forex friend. It's not uncommon for some traders to go quiet in the forums over time and their activity all but disappears. However, they can resurface years later and pick up were they left off. Sadly this will not be the case. Patrick will always be regarded as one of our super stars on so many different levels and he will be truly missed by everyone.

We send our thoughts and prayers to Patricks wife, 2 young daughters, family and friends.

Peace and Blessings to all.

Best Regards,

  • He was a great scalper born under another bright star of scalping, my condolences to his family, and rest in peace MM.

  • MM certainly was a brilliant scalper and I will miss his posts and company. My condolences to Patricks family. - Holmes

  • I was fortunate to learn from The Great Peter JCP alongside MM.

    He was certainly a very talented trader as well as a joy to discuss trade ideas with.

    My Condolences to his family. You will be missed Patrick.

  • Just to add here, as this is very sad news for all that knew him I can only imagine that it is worst for his family. Although every man is different that kind of loss hits you sooner or after, and hardly can be avoided, and leaves a mark that is maybe invisible to the outside but is ever-present on ourselves.
    That mark should not be used as means to give more pain but to remind us what is important in life.

    Experienced something close as my father passed away this fall from cancer, and as it was something you could expect it is still a thing that leaves you guessing about everything in life, about worthiness of everything and meaning in general (and I don't want to start there as it could be too long and tiresome), so when S Gissa says love to all I subscribe to that notion, as everyone should focus on what is important, close friends, family, and happiness and use that mark mentioned above to guide us to it.

    My condolences to his family and hope that they get on with their life without too much pain.

  • We cannot take our friends and family for granted for we know not the time of our calling.

    I'm sorry to hear this,  too all my friends here I wish you all well ,and MM will be in our hearts for all time. 

  • Deeply saddened by the news of Patricks passing. We lost one of the best. My condolences to his family.

  • Sad to hear of the loss of Patrick in July. I new him quite well, met him a number of times, but lost contact after I moved to Thailand last year. Sad to hear he leaves his family behind.

  • Hi all,

    Thank you so very much for posting your thoughts and words here about MM/Patrick. I know he would feel very flattered by the sentiment and generosity shown. Patrick studied trading techniques for several years and had been provided with invaluable tutelage from specific people during that time - I'm sure you know who you are. He had reached a point where he was able to return some of that knowledge to the forums, providing new traders with advice and tips he had picked up over the years, and was able to confidently discuss more technical matters with experienced members too. Towards the end - amongst all the pain that he and his family were having to deal with - Patrick felt a sadness that the trading knowledge and skills he had invested so much time in to gain were, in his eyes, going to evaporate to nothing. However, reading the messages here, his family and friends will see that this is simply not the case.

    On behalf of Patrick's family & friends, thank you for remembering him.

    Stephen (aka "Sheridan") - Patrick's close friend.
