Our Traders


One of the most important things when learning to trade is having a mentor. Why trade alone? You’d want your mentor to be a successful day trader -- with expert trading advice. Maybe even a famous day trader. We don’t want you to waste your time wading through business after business, trying to find an experienced trader you can trust to guide you in the right direction. Trade with our team of experienced and famous day traders instead.

Here at Simpler Trading, we’ve built a team of incredible trading mentors with expertise  in Options, Stocks, Forex, Futures, and Cryptocurrencies. Whether you’re an advanced trader, or a beginner with a small account, there’s a perfect mentor for you here. At Simpler Trading, we want everyone to have the freedom to live a happy, simpler life, and trading can help you achieve that.

With a mentor, you get expert trading advice from a real, successful day trader. Having a mentor provides you with the opportunity to ask questions, get feedback, avoid those trading pitfalls. Not only is it more enjoyable to trade with someone, but it speeds up your trading success exponentially.

Imagine when you were back in primary school. How difficult it would’ve been to learn to read, write, or spell without a teacher. How difficult it would’ve been to understand just normal human emotions, and how to deal with them without parents to guide you (and tell you what’s right and wrong). How difficult it would’ve been to figure out how to tell time or to just stick to a schedule without a guide. Most things that you learn in life, the knowledge stems from someone else before you. Learning to trade is no different, the difficulties you can bypass by finding the right trading mentor for you is truly invaluable!
