His first job after University was with mining firm Anglo and was Head of Research for an Anglo subsidiary named Boart International prior to becoming a full time trader.

In 1990 he began to move from unleveraged share trading to short term leveraged trading of the Ft100 contract and in the last 10 years to trading in the Foreign Exchange markets. His plan is to make cash from short term trading and to invest that cash in companies that are growing earnings both aggressively and safely. It’s the same model that Soros used in the Quantum Fund.

In 1992 after speaking at an investment club he was asked to train a group of traders and this lead to a second career as a trading coach and mentor. Over the last 20 plus years he has done seminars in trading of stocks, futures and Forex all over the world. These seminars have been conducted at both retail and institutional level.

In 2008 along with Tom Hougaard he started WhichWayToday. The company gives real time calls in stock indices and Forex markets. He still trades there and lends a hand when the full time traders needs a break.

While in London during 2010 trading at Whichwaytoday he discovered the power of the VectorVest stock market trading program. He started there as a customer but became so happy with the product that he is, at the time of writing, the MD of VectorVest UK and VectorVest SA.

He continues to trade short term for cash and to bank that cash into more solid longer term UK shares for both growth and dividend income using the VectorVest methodology.
