Enlightened Trading

When Adrian started trading and training people, he saw all sorts of crazy stuff.  Traders were making mistakes in psychology, as well as in techniques and strategy implementation.  The name “Enlightened” came about when Adrian discovered that the most helpful thing to successful trading was to learn about yourself.  He now teaches people to develop strategies that are easily executed because they take into consideration the trader’s own mind, personality, objectives, and lifestyle. This approach makes trading easy and natural.because it’s so personalized.  

Fascination with Stocks

Adrian was just eight years old when his fascination with the stock market began. He credits The Stock Market Game with sparking this interest. The market went up and down, you could buy and sell and you got to collect dividends.  He remembers that becoming a billionaire on paper was the best thing ever!  Learning that you could possibly profit from the movements of the markets was exciting to him and stayed with him until he was able to start investing after his time at university.

Don’t Quit Your Day Job

Adrian encourages traders not to quit their day job too soon.  Instead, you should use your day job to fund your trading account and grow it big enough to one day get the freedom that you truly desire. If you don’t rush the process, you eliminate the stress that comes with being forced to be profitable. Adrian feels that many traders get this backward. Trading doesn’t have to be stressful.  When trading becomes mechanical because you are following a straight-forward strategy, you are able to eliminate the wild and worried emotions that many traders experience. Spend as much time as necessary developing your strategies, and when you start making more trading than in your regular 9 to 5, then it’s time to quit your job and enter full time trading.
