We Know Trading

Our Story

Trading is difficult. Not everyone who tries it succeeds. In fact most who try fail. 

Over the years many people have approached us and told us they were going to try trading from home. These casual approaches always troubled us as we knew that the odds were stacked against them, especially as they were not getting the benefits of guidance, mentoring, information sharing, and support that comes with sitting on a trading desk with successful traders. 

So we built TradeDay to change that.

We set out to create a ‘virtual trading room’, an environment that offers as close as possible the advantages professionals have when they sit at their Trading desk in a Proprietary Trading group, Hedge Fund, or Bank, along with the ability to fund those with successful strategies.

The Founders

We have 45 years of industry experience between us, with 30 years of successful trading. We have mentored and managed teams of traders and built Professional Trading groups. We know what’s important in trading, where to focus, how you should approach your trading.
