Why I am able to provide you with guidance and help in the Markets
I’ve been in the industry since 1998, in roles including Funds Manager, Derivatives Advisor, Trader, Broker and Market Strategist.
When I first joined the industry, I was trained as a Technical Analyst (or Chartist). This was at a time when TA/Charting was still considered an ‘extreme’ analytical method. Computers were still using 128k dial-up modems, and software would take hours to update data, let alone run algorithms and trading plans.
After 20 years, it’s a different world now!
And in those 20 years, you could say I’ve learnt a few things. And that’s where my Recommendations Service, Course, and Mentoring comes in.
iTrade. iManage Money. iTeach. iMentor.
My very first day on the job was all about trading. Thrown into the deep end, I was making trades within weeks of starting my career. But that was only after hundreds of hours being put to the test in ‘back-trading’ and testing systems and mathematics for my mentor.
Yes, I had a mentor too. Bruce Barnard was a wonderful mentor and friend. When I was taken under his wing as a student, he was considered New Zealands most experienced Technical Analyst (in fact was the only qualified person in the country at the time).
Bruce taught me a great deal about charting and technical analysis, but as all students, you still need to pave your own path. And since then, I have made it my focus to improve my trading, my portfolio management, and ultimately my results.
The markets and the investing world are a numbers game, but there is an “art” to how markets flow.
Money is personal!
I believe that there isn’t one strategy that fits all. But I also believe that Anyone can make money from the markets. To do so, there are key elements you need to understand (but not necessarily master!).
The markets are systematic, fused with uncertainty. And with this in mind, understanding a number of key factors and developing sound strategic approaches will breed success. You just need to be provided the path to success, and you have to execute. Nothing worth achieving is handed to you on a platter.
So again, welcome to MatthewBrownMentoring.
