The empowered investor dismisses the noise, choosing instead to rely on their system based upon a proven process. Their reward is the ability to independently build wealth and safeguard their financial futures.

Trend Following Mentor

It doesn’t matter how often you are right. The only thing that matters is how much you make when you are right and how much you lose when you are wrong.


Trend followers understand this better than anyone.


Although simple in theory, to master the skill of trend following requires discipline. It requires patience. You must oppose the conventional wisdom. Reject the noise and reject the idea of forecasting.


In his Inner Circle program, James mentors those wanting to become successful trend traders so they can reach their goal of financial independence.
