Simpler Trading Team

3 min read

There is a resounding message behind this trader’s sessions – a calculated trading plan backed by year-after-year-after-year of experience, technical prowess, and analytics.

“We’re here to trade.”

He puts his plan to the test by trading one of the riskiest markets available using conservative, methodical strategies while maintaining balanced risk-to-reward ratios.

Neil Yeager, Vice President of Futures Trading, is this week’s “Friday Feature” team member.

At Simpler Trading, there is nothing more valuable than our people – our biggest asset. 

Neil headlines this highlight of the newsletter where we present one of our team members making an impact.

High-level peers in the market describe his style as understanding the intraday nuances of the indexes better than most others when trading against key levels and within short-term day trading setups.

Neil looks at strategies and setups with a keen eye for simplicity and effectiveness no matter the complexity of the markets.

He maintains strict adherence to his trading plan, yet his straightforward and easy-going directions allow him to encourage other traders who seek success in the markets.

Neil focuses on futures, currencies, and commodities. Even advanced traders have learned from his strategies, statistical modeling, and backtesting and applied these elements across the markets in stocks and options.

Traders can learn to use Neil’s low risk-to-reward day trading plays, while more seasoned traders can integrate swing trading futures and currencies opportunities into their daily operations.

Neil is a regular in the Futures Gold chat room where his laid back, conversational, and direct teaching style draws a crowd. He gets excited about sharing the process and possibilities of a setup while keeping his emotions in check when evaluating the validity of a trade.

He’s not shy about cutting away from one opportunity to pursue key setups. 

“It’s just a trade” to Neil, and he’s glad to show you what he’s doing and why he believes his plan will be successful.

Neil exhibits steady patience, but is always ready to execute a trade which presents the highest potential for success because he is “here to trade.”
