READ ANTONIO'S BIO
Today, you can often find Antonio Ferlito on television in Italy, discussing Economics and Finance.
In 2006, he opened his first trading account at the age of 15, and he’s been an active trader in the markets ever since.
He went on to graduate from the University of Catania, in Sicily, Italy, with a degree in Business Administration and a thesis on Online Trading and Tax Strategies.
And in 2017, Antonio threw his hat into the ring at the Trader’s Cup, a year-long Italian trading competition, where his account generated more than 132%. Then, in 2022, Antonio entered the 2021-2022 Global Cup Championship of Futures Trading™, where he placed 2nd with 133.2%.
Antonio says he finds himself “among few traders who have been able to close each fiscal year in profit, managing to beat the market in some of the most difficult times; such as, in 2008 to 2009 during the mortgage crisis, and in 2020 to 2021, during the outbreak of Covid-19.”
Antonio is an Analyst at Investing.com, as well as certified as a Professional Trader Analyst and Teacher in Financial Trading, according to Consob (The Commissione Nazionale per le Società e la Borsa (CONSOB), the public authority responsible for regulating the Italian financial markets).
He credits his success in futures and stock trading to his background in business administration, technical preparation, budget analysis, focus on market fluctuations and timing, and not letting his emotions get the best of him.
“I don’t get too excited when I close a big profit trade, and I don’t get too depressed when I close a losing trade,” Antonio says.
The profile above includes statements of opinion. Trading involves substantial risk of loss and is not suitable for everyone. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. World Cup Championship (WCC) accounts do not necessarily represent all the trading accounts controlled by a given competitor. Accounts trading in the WCC may be subject may be subject to commission rates different from those following the AutoTrade™ trading service. WCC competitors may control accounts that produce results substantially different than the results achieved in their WCC accounts.
