Trader - Smack the Markets
Fergal started his trading journey in 2011, initially trading Forex on a part time basis whilst perusing a career in the Police service. In his early days of learning this business he attended a number of trader seminars and courses which is where he first came across Simon who was speaking at a seminar he attended. Since then Fergal has worked closely with Simon learning the same trader methodology and perfecting his trading skills under Simon’s stewardship.
This helped Fergal to make the transition to full time private trader in 2015, enabling him to leave his day job to focus on the markets. Fergal trades Forex, commodities, US indices.
