  • Jared Passey Teaching Forex Trading since 2004

     I got started trading Forex in 2003 and took to it like a fish to water, we were trading in a group and soon many of the others started asking me to train them. As I took on clients I found that my trading was sharper because I had to look at things from different perspectives. I have worked with as many as 40 people per week one-on-one. I'm told that I have a gift for recognizing what people need to hear and explaining things so they are easy to understand.

    I only work with a hand full of select people at a time now because my time is a lot more valuable to me and I'd rather spend more of it with my family than with students (no offense).

    My trading styles focus on manual price action trading, which means that I don't look at trading robots or automated systems. I believe in creating trading strategies that have both a high probability of success and the average wins are greater than the losses.

    I love reading charts and finding awesome trades and also helping others do the same.
