Trader, Blogger & Mentor at TraderSimon
Having spent 18 years in the City developing trading software for some of the biggest Investment Banks, I've seen it all... psycho bosses, 4 a.m. support calls, not to mention the odd person passing out on the trading floor!
Then my daughter came along and she changed everything. I wanted to see her grow up.
Working in the cut and thrust of it all gave me the hunger to trade the markets for myself. I had seen the traders who were treated as gods whilst the IT staff worked in dark windowless offices.
The development work I had done for the bank's trading systems did nothing to prepare me for how to trade the markets. The traders I had worked with were agency traders, not proprietary traders. They really didn't know how to trade the markets either!
So I turned to the internet and found a sea of (mis)information, most of it bad with self-proclaimed gurus and false claims. I spent thousands of hours burning the midnight oil and studying charts. Finding out how to trade was like looking for a needle in a haystack!
Then I met some of the best (and most generous) traders in the world and they helped me understand how the market really ticks. I began to understand why so many retail traders struggled and why they blew account after account, and eventually gave up.
I found out why price moves, how the big money traps the small retail traders and why good risk management is the no.1 rule worshipped by every successful trader.
Ten years after the start of my trading journey, I'm ready to pass on this information to you. Are you ready to do what it takes to achieve profitability?
