A little bit about Henry:

Henry Gambell began his career as an IT professional with a passion for gambling, which by no accident landed him at John Carter’s door one fateful day in 2010. After observing his calm demeanor, John recognized the potential trader inside him. He decided to train Henry in his craft. Henry left his job and joined John in what was at the time, the beginnings of a business being run out of an apartment. They started the company that is now Simpler Trading, and Henry helped contribute to the second edition of Carter’s book, “Mastering the Trade.” Henry is now our Vice President and Lead Content Provider.

Henry dives into trading with the opening bell, and you can usually find him in our chatroom trading the market open. He is primarily a conservative, directional trader, with a trend following, conservative take on the markets. The complex, income generating options strategies he utilitizes such as butterflies, unbalanced butterflies, credit spreads with occasional long calls and puts when he's really feeling aggressive allow him optimal risk to reward scenarios. During his sessions, you can find him scanning for new setups, walking traders through new trades, managing open trades. A strict technical analysis, he focuses on key technical indicators such as the Voodoo lines (derived from Elliott Wave analysis), Fibonacci levels and key technical levels. His patience and market overview that he shares daily in the trading room at market open will get your day started off on the right foot. He tries to keep his indicators simple, using The Squeeze, RAF Indicator, and Voodoo Lines. His goal is to give traders high probability, conservative trades with excellent risk to reward ratios.
