Trader & Investor

Joe B Marwood is a trader and investor specialising in financial trading and mechanical trading systems.

He began his career trading stock and bond futures for a prop trading firm in the UK and now works through his own private company.


How did you get started?

I started my career as a professional day trader for a UK-based prop firm where my principal products were the FTSE 100 future and German Bund.

Today I trade a portfolio of individual stocks and occasionally futures and I have a passion for building automated trading strategies and systems.

What is your trading style?

I use a mechanical strategy to trade on a largely end of day basis. I look at both fundamental and technical analysis and use strategies that are based on historical simulations. I often combine those strategies with my own experience and discretion to come up with trades that I believe are the most attractive on a risk/reward basis.

Mean reversion or trend following?

I have found that traditional trend following methods do not work as well as they once did. My methods are based on my own observations on the market whether they are based on momentum, trends, mean reversion or anything else.

Who taught you how to trade?

My mentor was a former head of trading at a well known German investment bank. I have also read and studied countless books, journals, and articles, and have spent many hours in the market. You can never stop learning.

Why did you make this course?

To educate others so that they don't make the same mistakes I made. Learning to trade can be a very expensive and drawn out process. As a trader, it is also extremely beneficial to have sources of side income as that takes the pressure off your own trading. Putting what I have learnt into a course also solidifies my own learning.

What are the secrets to successful trading?

First of all, you must have the passion to succeed. If you are in it only for the money you will have a very tough time and will be doomed to failure. You must also be comfortable with risk and be able to separate your emotions from the money.  Having a system with a profitable expectancy is also crucial and for that you will likely need a strong ability with numbers.

Why do most traders fail?

Most traders start off under-capitalised and then chase unrealistic returns which results in them blowing their account after a couple of big losses. Most beginner traders do not realise the realities of trading which is why they have trouble sticking to trading plans and dealing with their emotions. Trading should be treated as a business.
