Edwin Cornelissen is a professional trader with Trade View Investments. Edwin started trading in early 2013 with the goal of trading professionally. The concept of algorithmic trading took his interest because he wanted to test the performance of his strategies before trading them. He also liked the idea of having a computer execute the trades. After being introduced to Trade View Capital, Edwin embarked on an education program to improve his skills. He now trades Trade View capital and is currently up 17% YTD. The also manages a team of prop traders at Trade View.

6.55pm: Guest Member Speaker – Alison Chan - Trader and Accountant
Topic: Multiple Pocket Money Trade Strategy
Alison will give an insight on how she uses multiple time frames and the correlations she views to identify high probability entry points. This process is accessible to both beginners and more advanced traders, as it does not require knowledge of sophisticated software. The method can be applied to any timeframe, including intraday and long term. Alison will also discuss concepts unique to the Forex market that she noticed during her eight years of trading FX. This will be via a question and answer session.

Alison Chan has been a member of the ATAA since 2007 and is a former member of the New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants. Since moving to Australia she had held accountancy roles at Citibank, ANZ, Esanda, GE Commercial, JP Morgan, Aviva, Towers Perrin, and Cash Converters. Her trading life began originally on Australian equities, indices and later CFD’s. Today she continues to trade FX.
