About

I have been investing in the financial markets since 2007 and mentoring since 2012. I use a combination of proven old school trend following techniques combined with cutting edge tech to efficiently and effortlessly compound my returns. I believe good investing is a sophisticated art. The best techniques are simple to learn but consistently extracting profit comes with challenges. Get it right and you will be handsomely rewarded.
