As founders and contributors of Trading Halo, we have over 30 years combined market knowledge in the Financial Services industry. Not only have we worked at the very highest levels for market leading Brokers, but we have also spent many years trading the markets ourselves. These experiences have given us an invaluable insight into what makes a profitable trader, and what holds many back from achieving regular success!
About Us: Our Mission
Our mission is to improve the performance of all traders, both novice and expert alike. We will share our market knowledge and experience, as well as providing an insight into successful trading behaviour, so that every aspiring trader has the full suite of tools to enable them to maximise their potential.
