“I hope, through this blog, to teach you, the active or student trader, something of my extensive knowledge of the markets, suggested methods to use and of course, mistakes to avoid.”
Bryan Noble, Founder
I have been a Futures Trader for 30 years, initially with Banque Nationale de Paris (now BNP Paribas) for 10 years and then Ulster Bank Markets before setting up a floor trading business in FINEX, a trading floor division of the New York Cotton Exchange, in the fledgling IFSC Dublin in 1995.
When FINEX closed a few years ago, I continued to trade my own account and still do so today.
Having seen so many ‘would be’ traders try their luck in this business over the years and end up losing a lot of money and walking away from it, I am really interested in passing on as much information as possible to those who see trading as a potential full or part time career.
Trading like any other profession, requires a lot of self education, adherence to some fundamental principles and continuous research. I hope, through this blog, to teach you, the active or student trader, something of my extensive knowledge of the markets, suggested methods to use and of course, mistakes to avoid.
In my posts I will talk a lot about the futures markets that I trade and in particular the Euro currency versus the Dollar, the main Stock Market Indices such as the S&P500, the DOW, the FTSE and the DAX. I have also been known on occasions to trade Commodities and Bond Markets. I would hope, in those blogs, to give my views and rationale for taking or exiting trades in order to assist you with your own understanding and education towards a career as a trader.
Best wishes with your learning journey and in order to ensure that you don’t miss any of my updates, I would urge you to sign up for my ‘Opinion’ email (in the right hand sidebar) which I will issue several times a week.
