Andrew is a full-time professional trader with over 35 years of experience in the financial markets.

At the turn of the century, Andrew moved to Singapore and worked closely with the Singapore Stock Exchange assisting in their migration from open outcry to automated trading.

He continues to be a full-time trader however, over the last 6 years he has split his time between trading and educating aspiring traders.  He has taught over 100,000 students and has built up a YouTube and social media following of over 350,000 and is a known face in the industry.

Co-Founder, Trader & Coach

Max originally started his journey in the markets similar to most of you. Due to his willingness to learn and develop himself in all areas of his life, personal and professional, he was able to progress from a complete novice in the retail space to managing funds for independent shops overseas and in the city.

His career began in 2007 at the beginning of the last major financial crisis with him soaking up as much as he could from online resources.  After severe losses and a steep learning curve, he started to see positive results approximately 18 months into the beginning of his journey. After seeing consistent growth for a period of time, he knew he needed additional funding if he were to turn his fascination with the financial markets into a living income which is when he decided to embark on a journey into the proprietary space.  He was coached by some of the best floor traders around learning every single day how institutional liquidity is used and ultimately how smart money thinks in the markets.

Fast forward to the present day and Max has had the pleasure of working with some of the most respected minds in the industry, is a published author, has provided market reports to a variety of shops around the world, and continues to manage portfolios and has played a vital role in thousands of individuals around the world becoming funded traders.

This is what puts Max in the right space to help you in your own journey. He knows what it takes.

In his spare time, Max enjoys cycling, a lot!  You'll likely see him with bruised elbows from his mountain biking holidays!
