Blake’s interest in the famous US stock market was initially inspired from movies like “The Wolf of Wall Street”, “The Big Short” and “Margin Call”. He began to dabble at first with no financial education or experience and did not fare so well in the beginning. He kept at it, meeting regularly with friends who also liked to trade, and eventually started to notice patterns in the market. That led him to begin creating basic strategies off those patterns and his skill with trading and investing improved significantly.
During Blake’s freshman year at college he joined Investing and Finance clubs, learning how to trade options contracts and how the inner workings of a hedge fund operated. He pivoted to a financial career path and was introduced to Forex, aka The Foreign Exchange Market. Blake became obsessed with Forex. He loved how the market is open 24 hours a day, 5 days a week and that he no longer had to deal with PDT (Pattern Day Trading rule) like in the stock market. He was also drawn to the unfathomable size of the Foreign Exchange Market and learned everything he could in as much detail and as quickly as possible, including enrolling in trading education courses like this one.
Eventually, Blake became a trading educator (for a different trading education platform) but found their content poorly produced, covering only the basics without including extremely important details like how to use the proper leverage or explaining the entire trading process. This is when Blake knew he had to make the best trading course the world has ever seen; a course that takes the student from “what is a pip” to learning everything there is to know about “Elliott Wave Theory”. Blake’s training goal is to help the student become a master, giving him/her the ability to teach others and eventually start their own hedge fund. After many long nights, VVS Academy was born.TEACH ME!
