Tutoring in: Foreign Exchange Trading Online
Tim studied electronics at RMIT and latter computer science at Monash University.
Those were the days when computers lived in air conditioned glass rooms that could only be entered by the white coated high priests of technology. Students wanting to run programs sat outside the glass room and waited their turn at one of the many card punching machines that were used to laboriously enter programs and data. The pile of sorted punch cards were then left in a box for the operator to collect, load and run. It could take days and sometimes even weeks to write and debug a simple program.
Tim’s first job was also at Monash University in the department of medicine where he was involved in, designing and constructing specialized electronic equipment for clinical and research use. He moved on from there to industry, attracted at the time by the rapidly growing field of automation and robotics. His skills and experience in programming and software design steadily increased.
The financial pressures of a young family led Tim to switch employment from the stimulating area of electronics and technical software to the more lucrative opportunities in finance and business software where he worked until retirement in 2005.
Tim grew up in a trading family. He recalls his father and uncle checking the evening newspaper for the end of day stock prices and the crisp, curt telephone calls to the stock broker in the mornings with their buy or sell orders.
He did not start trading himself however, until the mid 1990’s.
Tim was initially mentored in share trading by a friend who at the time was managing a large investment fund. The technique he was taught is known as value investing which uses accounting and other fundamental information about companies and their shares. As time went on Tim’s knowledge and interest in technical analysis also developed. He was an early adapter of online trading when it became available in Australia and has traded not only shares but also CFD’s, options, commodities and currencies.
These days, Tim focuses on currency (forex) trading. He uses a combination of fundamental and technical analysis together with some sophisticated computer based quantitative analysis to evaluate, test and continually improve his trading strategies.
He also uses his mathematical and programming skills to help other forex traders with strategy development, testing and analysis.
Tim is a voracious reader, an amateur musician and enjoys regular ballroom dancing.
