Victor Stoichkov: Full-Time Trader
To fulfil this objective, Victor started the professional trading course in September 2018. Here's a short Q&A on how he found the experience.
What made you choose Amplify?
I wanted to move on to trade futures and although I have a finance background, I didn’t know how to interpret fundamental data and news and how to trade that type of information.
I did research online and came across the courses at Amplify, which combined both fundamental and technical analysis and also had good reviews so I got in touch and signed up.
What was your experience prior to completing the programme?
I worked in asset management for about 3 years and spent about a year swing trading stocks with my own funds.
Are you still trading at the moment and do you still speak with the Amplify team?
Yes, I have moved on to trade my own account full-time. I also speak with the team on a daily basis through the Trading-Live chatroom - AmplifyLIVE. Everyone there is very approachable and willing to help out, which I find important for someone starting out.
Do you feel the course was a good investment in the development of your trading?
Definitely. It was a very good foundation and it helped me understand a lot of the fundamental drivers behind markets. I also helped me improve my technical analysis skills and learn more about the behavioural aspects of trading.
It is important however, to put in a lot of hours yourself and keep on improving after the course, because it’s a steep learning curve and it’s different for everyone.
