Cameron Mitchel is a professional full-time trader with over 22 years’ experience. He trades several markets, specialising in the S&P 500, DAX, crude oil, foreign exchange and ASX shares. He also runs a multi-million dollar private managed fund and personally mentors a small select group of students each year. During the past 22 years he has lost everything 3 times, had his broker go into liquidation where he lost 95% of his wealth overnight, has lost $500,000 on a trade in one night and sat there in disbelief as it plunged, has broken all his rules many times, ignored his stop losses and like most has placed a trade based on emotion more than once.

But it’s these failures and losses that have made him the successful trader he is today. As a professional trader he has traded stocks, futures, options and CFDs on all the major financial exchanges and after many hours of back testing and experience he has developed a unique trading system which has allowed him to personally achieve a 80%+ win/loss ratio. He has privately taught his system for 17 years to students in Australia and internationally, and is regularly asked to speak to both traders and investors about his experience with technical analysis and trading psychology.
