"Hi, I'm Luke and welcome to the Disciplined Trader Academy!"

My aim for this platform is to provide a range of content and resources to help traders develop the trading skills and discipline I believe is absolutely pivotal to any trader's success.

I have been trading for over seven years and it took me a considerable amount of time and effort to become consistent. During that time, I tried a mixture of different methods to help improve my trading results. I read various books, watched countless tutorial videos, signed up with different teachers and attended live webinars and trading rooms to learn all I could so that I could join the revered 5% of traders that make consistent results. My aim with trading has always been to be able to make a living from it and to have the lifestyle it enables those who master it to have. By that I don't mean flashy cars and huge houses; simply the freedom trading can afford you to spend on other things that are important to you, where a regular job would not.

I have traded various markets over the years and my approach has developed as I have progressed. I started by day trading exclusively, first on the Forex major and minor pairs before starting to trade indices as well. I thought for a long time that day trading suited my personality and lifestyle quite well but over the last 12-18 months I have realised that I much prefer swing trading. It allows me to trade quality over quantity and it’s much easier to not get sucked into over-trading as it requires a lot less screen time than when day trading.

A lot of people will tell you that learning to trade is not an easy task and takes a solid amount of time to even become a break-even trader and I could not reinforce this more. Becoming a consistent trader took me longer than I ever thought it would and I think if I would have had realistic expectations from the outset, the journey may have been shortened slightly (and been a lot less frustrating!).

That's exactly what I hope I can do for many traders out there; maybe you are one of them. Through this platform, I aim to teach all the skills needed to become a consistent trader and try to provide all traders with a realistic outlook on both what is required to become an independent trader, and what a consistent trader looks like.

I have made a free Trading Basics course on this website and YouTube that should be a great starting point for anyone new to trading and wanting to learn more. You can subscribe to the Disciplined Trader YouTube Channel to get instant updates when new content is posted.

I wish you all the best with your trading journey and look forward to you joining the Disciplined Trader community!

Risk Disclosure: Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

Hypothetical Performance Disclosure: Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. for example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.
