Students are supported by a team based in London, England.
Why we're here
"Too many private traders don't have the correct skills to trade. Our mission is to put that right. "
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, focused around the 3 steps all traders need to navigate, to help solve this very real problem.
My Trading Skills was formed in 2017 and we have been helping private traders ever since.
