Advisor Photo Mark Ayoub
He’s trading’s answer to Phil Jackson. While Jackson brought a bit of Zen onto the basketball court, Mark Ayoub brings his own brand of spirituality to the trading screen.  He finds relief from the daily stress by “fine tuning” the inner self.  Winning trades are certainly welcome, but his ultimate goal is to become a better and more complete human being through communication with a higher power and the . . . READ MORE
Advisor Photo Martin Campana De Paul
"You can be free. You can live and work anywhere in the world. You can be independent from routine and not answer to anybody. This is the life of a successful trader. Many aspire to this but few succeed." Those lines from the introduction to Alexander Elder’s book “Trading for a Living” stirred something deep inside Martin Campana De Paul. From the time he was a teenager in a small Argentine town, Campana De Paul longed for the life of a trader. He was determined to reach for the inde . . . READ MORE
Advisor Photo Michael Cook
Michael Cook is not likely to overreact to sudden movements in the market. After all, when you have executed transactions valued at tens of millions on institutional trade desks, you’re not likely to be rattled by a three-tick swing in the e-mini S&P’s. Cook spent 10 years on European trading desks as a market maker and senior trader with various banks and hedge funds, specializing in debt instruments and emerging markets. He holds degrees in Internation . . . READ MORE
Advisor Photo Frank De Baere
Strange but true: A Belgian vegetable farmer with a degree in industrial engineering finds trading success using Chapter 12 of the Old Testament Book of Daniel as his guide. The farmer is Frank De Baere, who runs a chemical crop protection business and 170-acre farm along the sandy dunes of Belgium’s northern coast. A chance reading of John Needham’s work on Danielcode time cycles piqued Frank’s interest in 2010, and a trip to a New Zealand seminar brought him into the Danielcode fold. He was . . . READ MORE
Advisor Photo Rob de Vries
If you think professional trading is tough, try flying an 75-ton aircraft at 40,000 feet with 189 passengers on board. Both are stern challenges at which Rob de Vries excells. In fact, he is so good that he teaches both skills to others. As a pilot who has flown 5,000 commercial flights and logged close to 10,000 hours in the air, de Vries trains cadets to fly the Boeing 737-800 for Ryanair, one of europe’s largest airlines. He still captains flights one or twice a week between training se . . . READ MORE
Advisor Photo Kevin Gawley
You can’t accuse Kevin Gawley of not having his head in the game.  “When I am not trading or researching the markets I am working out or sleeping,” he says.  “That’s about it.  I have very few distrations other than my cat.” Even allowing for a few meals here and there, it’s still a narrow focus for Gawley.  He trades from home, often at night, and considers his occupation to be a passion.  If there is  . . . READ MORE
Advisor Photo Victoria Grimsley
Make no mistake about this singer-dancer-actress-carpooling mother of two young boys from L.A.’s South Bay area. She takes her trading quite seriously. “I love to do things that keep my creative juices flowing, and I believe trading has a lot of creativity in it,” says Victoria Grimsley, a Screen Actors Guild member who has toured as a dancer, worked as a magician’s assistant and appeared in commercials and independent films. “I am 100% devoted to trading.” She demonstrated h . . . READ MORE
Advisor Photo Gary Hart
To find his own voice as a trader, Gary Hart went down an eclectic road.  A home study course by flamboyant Ken Roberts… a few years in Woodie’s CCI Club… workshops with systems trader Greg Ballard… a decade of experimentation using TradeStation… countless books and magazine articles. “They were all stepping stones and pieces of the puzzle,” Hart says.  “Ken Roberts got me into futures trading.  Woodie  . . . READ MORE
Advisor Photo John Hill
It was 1984 and John Hill had enough. He was tired of getting burned by self-styled gurus who sold worthless trading systems for thousands of dollars. John wanted the truth. His answer was Futures Truth, a magazine originally designed to expose trading’s flim-flams and get-rich-quick scams. John developed EXCALIBUR software to backtest performance and separate the wheat from the chaff. As the magazine’s reputation grew, developers of quality systems began submitting systems to Hill, v . . . READ MORE
Advisor Photo Zlatica Kozikova
After completing high school in then-communist Slovak Republic, Zlatica Kozikova felt the political environment was suffocating her self-expression. She was short on possessions, long on ambition and ready for a cultural change, so she crossed two borders and settled in Italy. Within a few years Zlatica was able to buy a small, struggling Italian clothing manufacturing business and transform it into a thriving enterprise employing more than 100 people. But despite the success, she hadn’t foun . . . READ MORE
Advisor Photo Song Li
Growing up as a young boy in Beijing in the 1980s, the idea of becoming a professional trader never occurred to Song Li. “When I was a boy, the stock market in China was almost non-existent to the general public,” he says. “Many people thought of traders as gamblers. Now nearly every urban family has a trading account. The perspectives have changed.” Trading entered Song’s consciousness in the late 1990s and became an important area of interest after he moved to the U.S. to attend Wharton Bu . . . READ MORE
Advisor Photo Rob Mitchell
Rob Mitchell is not your average professional trader. He made his first trade in 1978 when he bought stock in AT&T, but didn’t get serious about trading until he experienced his first losses in the market. That loss sparked an intense interest in trading and motivated him to never let that happen again. Rob graduated with honors from the University of South Carolina with a degree in experimental psychology.  He is President of Axiom Research & Trading Inc., a market research firm spec . . . READ MORE
Advisor Photo Brady Preston
When Brady Preston was in boarding school in the 11th and 12th grade, his peers thought he was a little off-kilter.  “I don’t think they ever really understood what I was doing,” Brady says.  “When the other kids were up on other floors, I was in my room programming and learning about trading systems.  I have burnt out a lot of computers over the years.” Preston’s trading began at age 16, when he sold his Honda CR 125 motorcycle for $1,100 and bought corn options with the  . . . READ MORE
Advisor Photo Gary Segal
Gary Segal heard the clock ticking.  As a floor trader and broker in the early 2000s, he saw order flow to the pits drying up.  He knew that days were numbered for the spreading and scalping techniques he had been using in the Canadian Dollar pit since 1981. Traders in his situation went in several directions, many into new businesses.  Segal was determined to keep trading. “I knew if I had tried to u . . . READ MORE
Advisor Photo Joe Texido
Joe Texido is a straight-talking, no-nonsense type of trader.  He doesn’t operate any web sites or online chat rooms.  He doesn’t speak at trade shows and he doesn’t write newsletters or magazine articles.  He doesn’t credit any market mentors for paving his way. Joe focuses on substance, not style.  He is veteran of 30 years in the futures industry, with experience in sales, trading, compliance and management at investmen . . . READ MORE
Advisor Photo Andrea Unger
Andrea Unger loves juggling numbers, except when the numbers are used to identify human beings. Unger spent nine years as a middle manager for a major corporation in Italy. He enjoyed putting his mechanical engineering degree (University of Milan) to use in the workplace, but he didn’t enjoy the harsh realities of mid-level management. “I had 30 people working under me, and I saw how people can be treated like numbers,” Andrea says. “The maneuvers I saw in business were . . . READ MORE
Advisor Photo Larry Williams
"In a business known for one-hit wonders, Larry Williams has endured, passing the test of time... If there is one person who embodies the mind and the spirit of the individual trader during the entire 40 years existence of futures it probably would be Larry Williams." -- Futures Magazine, November 2012 Larry Williams began following the markets in 1962. His interest was sparked by the Kennedy market crash, when President Kennedy forced a roll back in steel prices. The crash was front page ne . . . READ MORE
Advisor Photo René Wolfram
Like countless traders before him, René Wolfram gained his direction and inspiration from the legendary Larry Williams. For René, the catharsis occurred in his native Germany around 2003 at a live Williams seminar. It led Wolfram on a journey to study books and videos by Williams, and ultimately transformed him into the man behind the podium at high-profile trading seminars in Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland. “The biggest inspiration to me has been the best trader of all time: La . . . READ MORE
