"We strive to give our traders the edge they need to succeed. This is our purpose."
Brad Gilbert, Chief Executive Officer & Founder
Traders4Traders was established in 2009 by experienced investment bank trader Brad Gilbert. Now unlike many so-called trading educators who ‘just felt inspired to share the secrets of their trading success & genius’, Brad set the business up to correct the wrongs in the retail trading marketplace. Brad retired from the Banks in 2007 after 18 years of frontline trading. In 2009 he was invited down to a Trading Expo by former colleagues to ‘check out the retail landscape’. He was appalled at what he saw and after investigating further found a global trail of carnage where retail traders had been led down a path of misery by massive ‘trading marketing companies’. These educators charge more than $20,000 for their so-called ‘Top of the line Pro Trading Content’ and are run by inexperienced ‘home-trained’ people with no serious front line trading experience. Their Coaching & Mentor teams are wannabee traders who came through their programs as clients. They are doing nothing more than selling the dream!
Over the next 10 years Brad devoted himself to constructing a training program and making it affordable so that people from all walks of life could seriously learn how to trade technically and fundamentally just like the bankers. Understanding market dynamics and the impact of major central bank announcements and when key technical levels are in play is a big step from staring at the screens for 10 hours a day waiting for two moving averages to cross over & give you a trading signal. That’s what you do when you have absolutely no idea what’s going on in the market!
Now Trading, like any career, takes time and effort to master. I’m not going to tell you you’re going to make a million dollars in year 1 but with the right instruction and resources traders can seriously make money from trading the markets. If you apply yourself and take the time to understand how the markets work and how to manage your capital, then you can start making money out of the markets within a few months. But you must be committed to learning the process. Our online Day Trading Masterclass has been purposely broken down into 5 components to make the learning process as easy as possible. Starting with the basics and leading right through to advanced trading strategies and professional risk management. Put simply, our online Day Trading Masterclass Course will transform your performance and you will finally Learn to Trade Like the Bankers.
Back in 2009 Brad had a vision to build the best trading team globally, that could take advantage in upswing or downswing markets across all asset classes. The aim is to draw talent from our training program & give everyday people from all over the globe the opportunity to trade for a living.
We have made Diversity and Inclusion our core pillars and developed a plan to proactively source diverse traders and expand our recruitment network into all Asset classes. Trading shouldn’t be just for the elite. Studies have shown that trading firms with diverse teams have broader perspectives, are more innovative, attract better talent, make better trading decisions, which in turn increase profits and enrich company culture. Helping our recruits become better traders is at the core of what we do, and we recognize that diversity across our trading team does just that.
What Traders4Traders is doing?
We want to revolutionize the opportunities for everyday individuals who through no fault of their own cannot get into the Fund management industry. Trading opportunities for individuals is extremely limited. Growing competition, University degree requirements etcetera so forth.
We have a unique approach to Trader recruitment – and we’ve honed, mastered, and put it to work over the past 10 plus years. From new traders to experienced professional traders, our boutique trading company is in the business of providing opportunities for ambitious people to join a professional trading firm.
We work objectively with our traders to help develop their skills and risk management techniques when requested. We can discuss any challenges they have with the markets and hone their goals for the future to come up with tailored risk management solutions to build the best team for our organisation.
Put simply, we’re providing a realistic path to trader funding and a potential full-time trading career regardless of your nationality, location, background, or skill level.
Traders4Traders is a values-driven company and these values have been established over the past 14 years of operation by our Founder and CEO, Brad Gilbert. Adhere to the highest professional standards of excellence in teamwork, communication, support, and create an unrivalled environment for exceptional people to perform to their best ability.
We provide an environment that encourages traders to always look for sound reasoning rather than just accept the trades they have been given. Egos are kept in check too and with our flat level of management, the Trading team & our Traders4Traders operate harmoniously. We also know from experience, no two traders are alike, so attention to each individual’s training needs is extremely important to us. No one gets left out!
Our Global Network of Traders
We have an amazing global network of traders that collaborate, share trade ideas, and support each other. I believe there’s nothing stronger and more effective than a network of traders working together with a common goal.
Our Traders4Traders (Discord) has enabled traders from all walks of life, from all over the world to connect, when it’s convenient for them. The level of teamwork, mutual respect, and understanding by all traders are at the very core essence of T4T’s Values and we protect this passionately. With our Team, you can be sure you’ll never be trading alone!
