Rainer started his trading career in value-investing quite early – at age fifteen he bought his first shares: “Daimler” and “Deutsche Bank.” In those days, an investor could make money even with those types of shares. Today he sees things very differently. Times and markets had changed dramatically even by 2009, when he started to trade full time. Knowing that value-investing alone would not always be sufficient to guarantee stable yearly returns or consistent profitability, he asked Joe Ross to teach him how to trade. At a beautiful Swiss mountain retreat, Joe personally tutored Rainer in Joe’s trading techniques.
Rainer has an extensive background in corporate and business management, gained by his years in the pharmaceutical industry. Besides being able to do wonders with a spreadsheet, Rainer has become an excellent trader. He has a keen understanding of world economics, and a special grasp of how interest rates affect the global economy.
Rainer brings to Trading Educators a unique combination of two worlds: investing and trading. He has organized a group consisting of five people – each highly trained and experienced in his role at Trading Educators, Germany. Together, they bring to the German-speaking market a great depth of knowledge and experience for filling educational needs in these changing times and markets. Traders will be able to enjoy the excellent results in the seminars Rainer and his team will present to those who want to be more profitable traders and investors.
Rainer and his team are dedicated to being the leading educators in Rainer’s franchise territory following Joe’s lead with the new approach revealed in the “Money Master” e-book and follow-up advanced seminar currently being offered. In addition, Trading Educators offers courses and training in Spread Trading, Option Trading, and Futures Trading, as well as courses in safer investing for individuals and businesses through the Money Master concepts.
Rainer says: “We will teach and show people that no such thing as “efficient markets” ever existed, or ever will exist. We will show those interested how to profit from this fact. So let´s get to work - the world needs the value we bring to it.” German, Swiss, Austrian, and Liechtenstein website: www.tradingeducators.biz

Mihai started trading stocks in 1998, at The London Stock Exchange and Bourse de Paris, while he was studying in London. Ever since then he has traded stocks, indices, forex, futures spreads and options, and stock options in all important international markets.
Mihai holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Electromechanics. His background is in Telecom. He has worked for multinational IT&C companies like Ericsson, Orange, Cosmote, and Nobel, where he held management positions in engineering projects, business development, direct sales, and customer service. Mihai has studied, worked, and traveled around the world. He loves to travel, a passion inherited from his father. He has visited almost all of the United States, Canada, most of Europe, and Asia. His favorite cities are Chicago, Stockholm, and Hong Kong.
In 2006, Mihai stopped working for corporations and dedicated his full time to trading. During his trips around the world, he visited all major stocks and derivatives exchanges, and met hundreds of people involved at various levels of the capital market sector. He then started mentoring others on how to trade, mostly his former colleagues and partners who wished to learn a potential way out of the “lifetime employee world”.
During the last five years, Mihai has specialized in stock options trading as an investment strategy. He loves helping traders learn the advantages of trading options. With options you commit much less capital to an investment than with buying a stock or any other type of instrument.
Mihai says, “You can learn to greatly amplify the return on a stock portfolio by effectively using options strategies, such as selling out-of-the-money calls against a long stock position, or selling cash covered out-of-the-money puts, just to name two simple ones. I have concluded that investing in today’s markets without solid knowledge of options trading can be a major liability. Since options have become so liquid today, it would be a major mistake to not use them in your investing strategies!”
After years of searching, traveling, and paying good money to get better educated in trading, Mihai found the finest education worldwide at Trading Educators. After being individually tutored and taught by Joe Ross, Mihai says that he can see himself basing his own trading on using just The Law of Charts™, The Traders Trick Entry™ and the Trading Educators setups, regardless of the instrument, the market, or the time frame.
Mihai is currently using his unique combination of trading experience, business development background, and his network developed during more than 15 years of corporate jobs and traveling, to bring Trading Educators’ superior educational advantages to the countries of Scandinavia, Benelux, and Romania.

Trading Educators in Italy
Our Italian website:
Guido Albi Marini is a graduate of Economics and Commerce from the Faculty of Naples.
He was responsible for all trading activities as Executive Deputy Chairman at the Bank of the Province of Naples (family bank), which was then quoted on the Milan Stock Exchange.
He moved to the United States where he has contributed actively to the listing on the Nasdaq of a technology company in which he was a partner. Guido started trading the partnership account in 2005, and continued managing the partnership resources in order to make them grow.
Thanks to his previous experience, it took him only a short time to choose the techniques that best fit his character and vision for trading.
The best results came from the techniques taught by Joe Ross. Guido studied Joe's books and practiced the techniques he had learned, and ultimately, as Joe suggested, he made them his own. He was able to further refine his trading by direct one-on-one tutoring with Joe.
The live course with Joe was the turning point in his career as a professional trader. Although he was already trading successfully using the material in Joe's books, private tutoring enabled Guido to coordinate all that he had learned from the books with what he learned directly from Joe in person.
Starting in October 2013, Guido will be the official and exclusive representative of Trading Educators in Italy, and Italian Switzerland, in addition to managing his main trading business,
Having studied with Joe, and now working alongside him, Guido is extremely adept at applying Joe's techniques and is familiar with all of Joe's deepest secrets. Guido's main mission is, through Trading Educators, to learn about live trading, but also to learn to love the trading profession for what it is.
Guido Albi Marini is a winning professional trader and his main activity is trading. However, beside assisting students with their trading problems twice a year, Guido will continue to act as interpreter for the live courses presented by Joe, and he will conduct a major portion of the course.

Alan Parry started trading in 1997, after taking a Joe Ross course, and very soon found that options trading was where he was most comfortable and successful. Because he found only limited and terribly expensive resources available to options traders, he developed his own spreadsheets to fit in with his style of options trading. These spreadsheets have developed over the years, and are now an indispensable tool in his daily trading.
Watching Alan trade is seeing a master at work. I doubt if there are many traders around who know more about options than Alan. Joe says: "Alan has truly become one of the greatest options traders in the world today."
Alan originally integrated the extremely helpful spreadsheets into a complete course called the "Matrix Options Course". He has now taken a quantum leap with the release of "Matrix Plus" which provides the options trader with all the tools necessary to become a successful trader. The Matrix Plus is able to find the best trades in any strategy by searching through real data, and then back test that strategy over a set period of time. Included is a 90 page manual with many tutorials, as well as a full course explaining each strategy.
The Matrix Plus will give you the opportunity to partake in high probability trades with very good risk to reward ratios; it does all the work for you and all you need to do is place your trades. The Matrix Plus has many more features too numerous to list here, so take a closer look. You will be surprised by the power that the Matrix Plus will bring to your options trading.
Alan is a living example of someone who resides at the tip of Africa, in Cape Town, yet is able to trade the U.S. markets daily. As he says, " No matter where you are in the world, you can trade the markets as long as you have a computer with Internet access."

Song Jiaying is the representative for Joe Ross and Trading Educators in the following countries: China, Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan, Singapore, and Malaysia. She says:
"I graduated in 2000 with an MBA, and then started trading. When I first read Joe’s books, I realized that in these books Joe tells only the truth about trading markets, which I had not found elsewhere. In 2005, with Joe’s blessing, I began to translate Joe’s books and seminars as the first person to introduce them to Chinese speaking countries, and to find the way to connect the Chinese market with Joe’s methods.
What I try to teach students is not only how to make money, but also how to become a successful trader.
As a happy mother, I currently trade for a living and promote Joe Ross' books and seminars in China."

Maciej Goliński, our Trading Educators partner in Poland, started his trading adventures in 1994, on the Warsaw Stock Exchange. At that time traders would place their orders personally in a broker’s office, having queued for a substantial amount of time. Only VIPs could place orders by phone.
In 1996, Maciej graduated from Łodź University, Poland, with an MA degree in economics. His dissertation was titled “Evaluation of the potential of trading bonds and shares in Poland.”
In 2003 the Polish currency market was freed, and Maciej was one of the pioneers who started trading the forex market.
In 2004, having worked as a director of an international company (FMCG) for six years and as general director for three, Maciej made a decision to resign to set up his own company that would deal with trading in a professional way. Since 2005 he has been trading mainly on the CME and CBOT in futures contracts. He specializes in Daytrading.
In the past five years he has completed a number of trainings in trading, including private training with Joe Ross.
Currently he uses his experience in managing an international company and trading on the stock exchange to help grow his own company, Trading Educators Poland, and to train others in the skills of trading.
Maciej is happily married, and is the father of a young son, Mikolaj. His passions include rallies, skiing, and sailing.

Vivek Bajaj joins Trading Educators with over 27 years of experience in the Financial Services Industry, of which more than 7 years were as a stock broker.
He graduated from Delhi University with honors in Economics. He then completed his Masters in Investment & Financial Analysis, and also holds a Post Graduate Diploma in Management.
He has experience in handling all phases of Retail Finance and Stock Brokering. During the course of his career he has worked in Senior Management positions in companies across various industries such as Non-Banking Financial Services, Banking, and Stock Brokering. Positions he has held include Product Head, Head-Retail Finance, Head of Operations and Credit, Head of Depository and Settlement Division, Compliance, and Principal Officer.
Vivek began his trading career in 2006. While experimenting with various trading techniques, he began to earnestly seek excellence in the Art of Trading. He combed the Internet looking for the right mentor, and after intensive searching he found the person he was looking for: Master Trader Joe Ross.
He then bought a book authored by Joe Ross, and saw that the techniques he learned from the book changed and greatly improved the method and style of his trading. From being individually tutored by Joe Ross, he learned the importance of capital preservation, risk management, and self management in trading. Since then he has traded very successfully, using only the approach and methods taught by Joe Ross.
In 2010, Vivek decided to venture out on his own to pursue his objective of continuously improving himself as a trader, and to help fellow traders in India to benefit by learning the best way to trade. In order to achieve this objective, it was imperative that he introduce India to the very best trading education — and that was through Trading Educators. Joe Ross saw that Vivek understood the markets and how they work, and was in a position to teach others what he had learned and experienced. Joe invited Vivek to partner with Trading Educators, and to represent Trading Educators in India.
