Best known for his successful Pro9Trader method, Todd Rampe has made a name for himself by helping thousands of people better manage their money. Rampe has been helping people with his knowledge as well as his actual experiences in trading.
As the founder of Academy Day Trading, Rampe has managed to evolve his business over time and bring his proven trading techniques to a new generation interested in growing their income while protecting what they have earned.
Before developing the Pro9Trader system, Todd Rampe was a full time trader with OEX options as well as stocks. By 1998, his attention was focused on day trading through the Emini S&P 500 as well as the Emini Russell Markets until the end of 2000. After his success in those two areas, Todd expanded his trading efforts to include the Dow, Nasdaq futures, S&P Mid Cap 400 and Crude Oil.
Over the next few years, he learned how to make more constant profits and curb his high expectations in terms of making a fortune as his earnings througout the Dot Com crash were not quite reaching his goals. While he enjoyed some great trades and good months, his expectations were so high that they were warping his view of how trading was working. For Todd, it was not only a readjustment of expectations, but a fresh approach that allowed him to start developing new systems of trading.
Before, Todd would simply put in his trades in the morning and then come back later to sell what he had purchased. This is a practice still used by many traders today, but unsurprisingly, it can be very erratic. Soon he discovered margins which allowed him to double his buying power as well as create far larger profitsthat he was determined to parlay into millions of dollars, only to see much of it disappear.
The Turning Point
With the advent of the Regulation Fair Disclosure and the Dot Com bubble blowing up, Todd’s trading practices were putting him into financial trouble. So, he rethought his entire approach, looking for leverage with his smaller accounts. The result was developing the systems that lead to Academy Day Trading and the Pro9Trader program which is now being heralded as a simple, effective way for people to properly manage their money while trading Futures.
Todd Rampe has managed to take the lessons of trading and focus on a low risk, high reward method that starts with small amounts and works up toward making the most informed trades possible using the right information. For the thousands who have taken advantage of his approach, they have been able to rethink their method of trading and protect what they have while gaining new profits regularly.
While there is still risk involved, particularly with day trading, Todd Rampe has managed to develop a system that strips away all the noise of excess information that plague many other trading programs and focus only on what matters. This approach has made Pro9Trader well-known for teaching anyone how to make the most of their money when trading.
