My Trading Skills

Too many private traders don’t have the correct skills to trade. Our mission is to put that right.

What we do

We teach private traders the skills they need to trade the financial markets. We’re honest in our approach:

  • Quality skill-based education: Our objective is simple, teach traders the skills they need to trade confidently and consistently. We do this through expert-led education.
  • We tell it like it is: trading is like any skill, it takes time, effort, and commitment to get good enough at it to deliver the outcomes new traders want. We'll teach our students the right skills and help cut their learning curve, but there are no secret formulas here.
  • Make it accessible: by using cutting edge technology, we deliver high-quality education online at affordable prices. Students can learn from anywhere in the world from most devices.
  • Take your time: we accept students learn at different paces due to their lifestyle and previous experience. We structure all our education to accommodate this. This includes lifetime access to most courses, easy access to recordings of live broadcasts, and so on.
  • We're not pushy: we don't push students into buying stuff they don't need. We'll tell students what we offer and we'll be clear what is included in each course or service. We offer no quibble money-back guarantees on everything in case students start something and realise it's not for them.

Why we're here

"Too many private traders don't have the correct skills to trade. "

Back in 2016 the UK’s Financial Services regulator, the FCA, reviewed retail trading and found that 82% of traders lost money – or to put it another way 18% (about 1 in every 5) traders made money or broke even.

Trading is a zero-sum game so you’re going to get winners and losers but it need not be this one-sided. The fundamental truth is:  Too many new private traders come into trading unprepared and under-skilled. 

With decades of experience training and working in brokerages in the retail derivatives industry, we saw an opportunity to offer a service to help solve this very real problem.

My Trading Skills was formed in 2017 and we have been helping private traders ever since.
