Who started Better System Trader?

Headshot

Better System Trader was founded by me, Andrew Swanscott. I’ve been developing and trading mechanical trading systems for the US and Australian stockmarkets since 2004.

In my search for trading success I’ve tried countless methods, read loads of books and attended lots of seminars, studying with top traders in Australia and internationally, to discover trading strategies that work best for me.

I know first-hand how hard it can be trying to make money consistently in the stock market, I’ve experienced:

  • The difficulties of following the advice of ‘experts’, trying to emulate their results when their strategy rules are unclear or open to interpretation,
  • The stress of following signal services that won’t disclose their strategy rules or promise large returns but deliver a very different result,
  • The feeling of failure risking too much money on my trades and losing a large chunk of my funds in just a few days,
  • The pain of losing money to unscrupulous operators who attempt to scam you of as much money as possible while offering very little value.

All of these experiences, while difficult at the time have led me to where I am today.

Now all of my trading is systematic, validated and backed by hard facts.

I believe trading is a continuous journey and there are always opportunities to improve and share with others. Better System Trader was created out of these experiences, to help others on their journey through trading.

I live in Melbourne, Australia. I have 2 kids – 1 boy and 1 girl.

My hobbies are mountainbiking, weight-training, technology and entrepreneurship. My AFL team is Essendon, go Bombers!
