Anthony Beardsell - Trainer, Coach and Trader

Anthony Beardsell – Academy Director, Coach and Trader

  • In 2012 I really dove deep into learning about the Technical Analysis (price chart analysis) side of short term trading in financial markets. I decided at that time that this aspect is key to success in short term trading. I decided to become an expert in this field.
  • I began a modelling project (using my NLP skills) to learn how to trade as a professional trader. Statistics show that up to 90% of day traders fail, I wanted to start turning this percentage around.
  • I love helping people create success (and have a strong sense of contribution to others). I want to do that by helping people learn to trade, helping traders become successful and make a good living from trading.

My mission when learning to master technical analysis in trading was to:

  • discover how the 10% of successful traders create their success,
  • find out what makes a consistently profitable, professional home based trader.
  • implement the skills and techniques successfully myself.
  • coach and train others (this is my true passion in life).

Over three years I studied top professional traders. I coached them, I read their books, I took numerous trading training courses, I analysed chart after chart and I traded my own account as I learned. Trading became my fascination and my passion.

Gradually I put together the pieces of the jigsaw that makes a professional trader as I learned the secrets of trading, the techniques and systems that top traders use to win consistently in the markets.

From what I learned I created a formula for successful trading, an approach to trading that provides replicable results. I began to day trade professionally and make a living from day trading. I continued to develop and extend  my expertise in the Technical Analysis approach to trading.

In 2016 I was ready to share with the world what I learned so that you too can learn how to trade and take your slice of money from the worlds financial markets. I created the Excellence Assured Trading Academy and our Day Trading & Swing Trading course and also our Forex Trading course.

I have a love for coaching and training others. Helping you create your success story inspires and motivates me. I now coach and mentor traders of all levels.

I bought your day trading course and i have to say it is the best investment i made so far for learning how to day trade. The things that helped me most was the traders equation and the signal and entry bar. These two things alone are worth the money for me!

Break through the jargon. You just want to trade, right? Discover your options and which markets may suit your budget and objectives in simple terms (no advice given, no credit accepted). Learn how to access the markets and find markets to trade.

The best route to market for you will depend on the type of trading that you want to do, the capital that you have at your disposal, your objectives (capital appreciation and/or income generation) and whereabouts in the world you live.

What to trade? Which market?

  • Stocks in play – These are individual company shares that tend to be fairly volatile – they are moving regularly during the day, thus giving the trader something to trade. Examples are the likes of Apple, Amazon, Barclays, Facebook Etc
  • Indices – Baskets of individual company shares. Such as FTSE 100 – UK, Dow Jones Ind- US, DAX – Germany, CAC – France
  • Forex – International foreign exchange markets. Currency pairs like EUR/USD, GBP/USD, AUS/USD
  • Commodities – Gold, Silver, Oil, Coffee, you name it!

What type of product or trading vehicles are available to trade?

  • Futures – Markets derived from stock indices, commodities and Forex.
  • Options – Markets that enable you to trade contracts involving options to buy or sell assets rather than the assets themselves.
  • Single Company Shares – Like Penny Stocks (US), Penny Shares (UK) and Stocks in Play.
  • ETFs – Exchange Traded Funds. Standalone funds that track indices etc
  • Spreadbetting – Offers the functionality of trading with the opportunity of using a small initial outlay. IG are the UK largest spread betting broker.
  • Direct Market Access – Direct access to the financial exchanges where stocks and assets are traded.
  • CFDs – Contracts for Difference. A wrapper for trading markets without owning the assets directly.
Take advantage of your natural edge over the markets
Your Trading Edge

Run your profits and cut your losses – your trading edge

There is one major advantage that a home based trader has over the market. You decide when to enter and when to exit your trades.

Even if your trading system wins only 50% of the time you can still make money! This is your primary edge over the market.

Whatever system you use in your trading, particularly as you learn to trade, make sure that it takes advantage of this edge.

The key to successful trading is to take a small risk with a view to gaining a much larger reward.

Learn to trade with a positive traders equation.
