6.45pm: Guest Speaker – Stuart McPhee - Trader, Author and Trading Coach

Topic: How to Implement the 7 Step Trading Process

Most traders trade randomly - they will look for trading opportunities indiscriminately without any process or methodology. In this session, you will learn why consistency is one of the most important traits of traders - consistency in the execution of their trading plan from entry to position sizing to exiting. Professional traders always methodically work their way through their process. Learn this 7 step logical process to streamline your trading and make you much more efficient. In this session, you will also learn Stuart's valuable trading tenets that govern all of his trading actions, and receive insight into his Altitude Trading System.


Stuart McPhee is a private trader, a best-selling author and personal trading coach, and has consulted to numerous financial services companies in Australia and throughout South East Asia.  He has over 20 years’ experience trading the financial markets, and since 2001, he has spoken live in front of tens of thousands of fellow traders from Mumbai to New York, Melbourne to Beijing, and many places in between.  Stuart regularly appears on Sky Business and on Channel News Asia throughout SE Asia, providing commentary on the foreign exchange market.  Stuart regularly travels to South East Asia (mainly Singapore) and presents at major trading events, trading seminars, and conducts staff training and personal trading coaching. 

His best-selling trading book, Trading in a Nutshell, 4th Edition (John Wiley) as well as his presentations, are not about vague concepts that don't work in the real world.  These are about incredibly practical, timesaving strategies that you need to implement in order to become a successful trader.
