Instructor Biography

Frank Bunn, Professional Trader

Go to the Stock Trading NINJA YouTube channel to see how I turned $6,000 into $105,000 in 5 trades.

My goal is YOUR success.

If you are like many Udemy students I work with, you have taken numerous courses about trading. And you still might not feel like you are making much progress.

That is because knowledge about trading and strategies does not always result in success; understanding a method or trading system does not necessarily make you a trader.

It may be that you just haven't learned how to trade - how to manage risk and random outcomes.

Most courses teach strategy and little else. Strategy is only useful if you understand the mechanics of price and how to interpret Market Dynamics (expansion and contraction) in a price chart. 

All of my courses not only teach key market dynamics and how to exploit price movement for profit, but they also teach you HOW TO TRADE.

Each one of my courses is a unique, valuable trading system - a tested, proven method you can put to work immediately to make money trading any security that can be charted. Why spend a ton of time learning to do this on your own? Follow the lead from a career 7-figure trader with 20 years of experience.

I work with traders of all skill levels, responding to all curriculum-related questions and forum posts promptly (usually within 24 hours). If you are serious about trading for consistent profit you need to work with me directly.

I am a probabilistic screen trader. In the 1990's I mentored with a former Chicago Mercantile Exchange commodities trader as well as a retired New York options broker.

I began trading in 1996, focusing on mechanical trading systems and software based tools. While training traders for the expansion of my business, I noticed that certain traders exhibit profound intuitive capabilities and inherent pattern recognition skills.

Over the last decade, I have developed a mechanical-intuitive paradigm which forms the basis of my trading models. The trader becomes the 'system', intuitively selecting low-risk, high-probability trades within the framework of the mechanism.

Once mastered, these pattern recognition skills enable the trader to achieve high profit factors and robust reward/risk ratios over moderately-sized trade samples. Whereas intuitive trade management is the best solution for random outcomes, the trader does not require the unrealistic, excessive sample size endemic to most statistical arbitrage models.

I am an empiricist and continue my research and development with emphasis on viable, probabilistic trading models employing the most advanced software tools available.

Each one of my courses is accompanied by my personal Performance Guarantee:

  • "By Then End Of This Training, You Will Have Acquired A Trading Skill Which Will Enable You To Consistently Locate Low-Risk, High-Probability Trades In Any Market That Can Be Charted."
