Tom started off his trading career in the sports markets and at the start of the 2020 pandemic when sports trading was no longer an option. Tom stumbled across the financial markets when researching how to improve his trading psychology. Tom was swept away by the vast amount of trading education and the scalability within the financial markets compared to that of the sports markets where both are limited. Since May of 2020, Tom has dedicated himself to applying all of the lessons he learned from his mistakes in trading sports into the Forex market under the watchful eye of his mentors Austin, James, and the ASFX community. Thanks to a solid foundation on which his forex career has been built, Tom has become a profitable trader and has made the step to become a full-time trader after quitting his 9-5 job. Tom enjoys documenting his journey and sharing the highs and lows of what it takes to become a professional trader in the hope to educate and inspire others to pursue their trading dreams and helping them along their journey.
Austin started his career as a retail trader in 2015 in his college dorm room. As with most retail traders, he spent the first eighteen months of his career up and down, unable to find consistent success. Austin was finally able to turn a consistent profit in year two and from there, it was off to the races. After building, testing, and proving his “ASFX” trading systems profitable, people started to ask him to share his knowledge. Fast forward a few years later, and Austin has now built one of the largest social media followings in the trading industry behind sharing valuable content through his daily trades. Being an entrepreneur at heart, Austin has built multiple successful businesses around the strategies he uses in the Forex market. Austin’s passion is rooted in helping bring value to the masses. His goal is to get as many people as possible trading actively and taking full control of their financial future.
