About Me

IMG_2809Hi and thanks for taking the time to visit the page.

I’m Jamie, an aspiring trader trying to navigate the markets and make dreams real. At first it was about making a second income, but since then it’s become so much more.

Like many in the pursuit of trading success I have a day job and a family, for me that’s flying Rescue Helicopters and hanging out with my little girl, which I love.

I decided to start The Unlikely Trader because I wanted to document the journey from amateur to professional trader, professional in both approach and in results. For many years I had an interest in trading but a misplaced belief that trading was for a select, ultra intelligent few held me back believing I could make it work.

I wanted to prove to myself that it’s possible to overcome the beliefs, self doubt and under confidence that hold us back from achieving the things we set out to achieve, and that it really is possible for “normal” people to achieve a consistent edge in the financial markets.
