Testimonials from my traders
I came across Steve Ruffley a few years ago, when I purchased his book The Ruff Guide to Trading: Make Money in the Markets. The book instantly resonated with me and became my ‘go-to’ market survival manual from then on.
Steve has had a longstanding career in the financial industry and has a wealth of trading knowledge – ‘Been there, done that’, as he often says. He is a highly successful and profitable trader. Consequently, I was very excited when I established that I could have the pro himself as a mentor by joining one of his ‘Tier groups’.
I have my own business and was therefore able to fund a six-figure account, with my own funds. At the outset, Steve spent some time with me to obtain some background information on my trading experience and expectations. He also provided me with direct support in order to quickly get the account live and the MT4 platform running, including his iView charts software.
The first month of trading size with my own cash was the test – make or break. I had undertaken some test trading in some large positions, with a fair degree of success, but trading live is a significant change in mentality. Steve was always on-hand with support for those important first trades, and constantly monitored my progress in the background.
Steve’s methodology uses both fundamental and technical analysis, with a selection of tools available, e.g. favourite indicators, signals and timeframes. Using this simple set of tools, the strategy is not too complicated to execute and provides me with a very effective edge, that provides me with the confidence to push the button.
In the beginning, I found it easy to make money, but I allowed my ego to drive me to take on more significant risk, resulting in the inevitable big loss and consequential drawdown period. It was tough, but I never gave up and with Steve’s constant support we were able to recover the losses. The subsequent strategy was so effective that it resulted in a 50-consecutive-day winning streak!
Steve has taught me the necessary skills to analyse where the markets offer value to a retail trader, to make money and how to protect my capital from tricks and traps of the big institutions, as well as my own trading errors. In addition to having a good strategy, I also have a trading plan that I do not deviate from.
We have been working together for a significant period now and I’m happy to say that I am a consistently profitable trader. No hiding, the P/L does not lie! I would highly recommend Steve. Thank you for making me one of the 10%.
