My passion for trading began when I was studying Mathematics and Finance at UTS Sydney. I loved numbers but I quickly became intrigued about the prices for financial assets which changed so dramatically all the time. The challenge to determine which direction the markets were moving soon had me hooked. My career started when the financial markets were rapidly expanding so I had plenty of opportunities to progress quite quickly. After learning the basic principles of trading such as derivative pricing, pattern recognition, technical analysis and trader psychology, I quickly moved on to pricing and managing large deal flows across the various books as well as positioning for larger price movements in Fixed Income, Derivatives and Foreign Exchange markets. I joined Propex four years ago and I enjoy being responsible for my own trading account. Whether you are trading for a large corporation or trading your own account, I believe the basic elements of trading remain true: sensible decision making and sound capital management combined with a very strong work ethic and desire to win. I love working with people and being part of a highly successful team and my ultimate goal is to teach and inspire others to pursue a long term career in proprietary trading.
