Hello, my name is Shaun Downey
I started trading at aged 16 with Rudolf Wolff Commodity Brokers, trading and brokering Soft Commodities, Oil and LME before being promoted to lead their market making FX Spot and Forwards. After 7 years, I went on to Fulton Prebon to trade Bond Futures, and then to Australia to head trading for AFP, specializing in stock options and convertible note arbitrage, whilst advising and trading the groups' global interest rate and currency exposure. I then joined Reuters to be part of the design and launch team of the Globex platform. I spent 20 years until 2012 as a technical analyst at CQG (www.cqg.com) teaching, consulting, and promoting technical analysis and system creation around the world.
I am currently a full time trader and mentor on an individual and corporate basis. As a Grandfathered member of the Society of Technical Analysts in the United Kingdom, I write and have written commentaries and educational pieces for various publications and websites over the past 20 years. I currently contribute to the CQG website.
I live in Cambridgeshire with my family and grandchildren.
