Description

Thinking about trading but don't really know how or where to start?  Ever thought about trading, but unsure if it is for you? Just started looking into trading, but worried about falling for some scam or terrible trading education? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this course is for you!

I know how daunting and scary it can be when you decide upon the idea of financial trading, often not even knowing how or where to start, never mind anything else!

This course will show you my 7 step process to take you from "thinking about it" to doing it.

There will be no spoon feeding though.  What I mean by that is that this course will show and explain the steps you must take, in the order you must take them, and will even give you some guidance on how to take them, but it will NOT do all the work for you - it is up to you to actually TAKE the steps! 

If you are someone who doesn't like the idea of having to put some effort into something, are always looking for the "easy" way, or the "hack", then I can tell you now that trading is not for you.

But if you are thinking about, have thought about, or have recently started looking into trading, and want to know HOW to start properly in a logical manner, then this is for you.  

So dive in now and learn, step by step, how to safely navigate the journey of learning to trade, from thinking about it, to actually doing it!

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone who is thinking about trading
  • Anyone who has thought about trading but isn't sure if trading is for them
  • Anyone who has recently started looking into trading, but has yet to start properly

Investor and Trader

With over 15 years of experience trading the financial markets, I have done enough right to make a success of it, and enough wrong to make me a great teacher!

I currently run The Investor Within - an online and consultancy based business teaching new and struggling traders first of all how to overcome a trading industry that is basically set up for retail traders to fail, and then how to get the same competitive advantage as professional traders.

You see I was lucky enough many years ago, to be personally mentored by a Hedge Fund Manager who lived next door to the farm that I grew up on!  He gave me knowledge and insights into the financial markets and how to trade that were just mind blowing.  

This was stuff that just wasn't, and indeed still isn't, widely available or easily accessible to the average retail trader, mainly because brokers and professional traders don't want you to know!  This knowledge is very much incorporated in everything I teach my students and clients.

I also have a qualification in Investment Management from the Chartered Institute of Securities and Investments.
