Mark Hills ventured into the futures markets 16 years ago, after being brought up in a rural background and with no college degrees. For 8 years he studied and attended over $40,000 worth of seminars on trading the markets of the world, concentrating his investing mainly on the futures markets where the leverage is higher, allowing him to maximise profits with the ease of tracking only one instrument. Three years ago Mark began educating traders on an individual basis. Although a very rewarding experience, time limitations dictated how much further he could go with this endeavour. As well as the strategies Mark employs to be a profitable private FX trader, he will take you though some of his more memorable trades, both enjoyable and not so pleasant. This promises to be an insightful perspective on a trader's journey that we can all relate to.
