What is Automated Trading- Mark Sleeman Knows

I brought up the name of Mark Sleeman in regard to automated trading to give you an example of a man who became an automated trader and gave up on his career. If Mark Sleeman can do this, so can you. You just have to have the desire, the plan, dedication, discipline and patience. With the trend following strategies I teach you do not have to give up your day job. My trend following strategies take less than 1 hour a day.

Many ask what is automated trading. Automated trading is akin to systematic trading.

Mark Sleeman is from New Zealand and 20 years ago made a life decision and became automated trader. Mark Sleeman was an engineer at the time and decided to become a full time commodities trader. He sold his house in order to start trading futures professionally. Since then, he has achieved a compounded annual return of over 14%. This 14% is not every year rather an average over the years. One year he might make 20% and year he could be down 5%. It is an average over several decades. Mark took put all of his personal assets in his trading system. Being an ex engineer, he utilizes a well thought out plan based on risk management. Mark like other long term commodity traders always focused on risk. Sleeman’s largest concern was the “risk of ruin.” You do not need to be an engineer in order to become a consistent and long term commodity trader or stock trader. You do need a plan as in any business. Having a mentor cuts down the learning curve as well as saves you money as you are learning. Trend following is not easy nor the Holy Grail. Successful trend followers realize that losses are part of the game. Successful trend followers know they never really know when a trend starts or stops. Successful trend followers do not search for holy grail systems and indicators.

My goal is to show you, YES you can become a consistent trend follower. It is up to you.

Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future performance. The risk of loss in trading futures contracts, commodity options or forex can be substantial, and therefore investors should understand the risks involved in taking leveraged positions and must assume responsibility for the risks associated with such investments and for their results. You should carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your circumstances and financial resources.
