TraderCobb CEO, Craig Cobb on How To Trade Successfully

Alongside today’s interview with Craig Cobb, we’ve worked together to provide a contest where we’ve got $1571 worth of cryptocurrency education on the line — enter to win the first, second or third prize.

Hello, Craig, it’s a pleasure to meet you! Can you give us a brief introduction to yourself? What is your story, dating back as far as you wish?

Thanks for having me. I will keep this as brief as possible. I first started my “Journey” if you will at 6 years old, my mum was a super healthy mum, used to feed me all the good stuff that I am happy about now looking back, but when I was a kid it wasn’t so great. I am talking no canteen, no sweets, and nothing but fruit and salad sandwiches. Well, naturally I wanted to have what I wasn’t allowed to have so I needed money. I started cutting my school rulers in half and shaping them into surfboards and selling them in the canteen line so I could buy the treats I wanted. It wasn’t long until I was found out and mum got a call to the headmaster’s office. That was where it became clear what my path was. Several businesses in school later and I had some money to put into stocks. I bought some shares with the help of my dad, watched them go up 800% then go out of business, I was hooked. Fast forward to 2006 and I am in London learning to trade and have worked with some of the biggest businesses in the financial world present day. I now have a mission to help people see beyond what they see as their skill set, I want to empower people to learn about money, finances, and trading. I now run several businesses one of which focuses on teaching people to trade. https://TraderCobb.com is my voice for this mission.

And how did you get involved in cryptocurrencies and blockchain?

You know when you have a mentor or someone you respect a lot reach out to you and just say “you need to check this out” and you’re thinking, ahhhh I kind of have my hands full right now but sure. Well, that was me. June or July 2017 was my first proper look and this market was moving hard, was fitting to my trading strategies well and I could see this being my internet moment, my moment to be a part of something in the very, very early days. Trading wise it was a dream and it’s still very early!

What led you to start TraderCobb, and why exactly this kind of project?

Good question. I was looking around for someone I could relate to, someone that didn’t come down in the last shower, who had been around the markets long enough to know what’s up and I just couldn’t find it in crypto, I just wanted to know if there were any small things exclusive to this market I should know about. I saw lots of very amateur people that called themselves “traders” and had massive followings, these guys (mostly men then) had no idea, they would just buy in a bull market and proclaim themselves experts and it really annoyed me. I knew they would not last but people were paying lots of money for this education. I kind of just had an “enough is enough” moment and thought, if people are going to pay for education then I will give them a good one. So you could say the business started out of frustration really lol. www.TraderCobb.com is a trading education company that teaches people how to enter the crypto market and trade it, store crypto and pretty much all you need to know, we do daily scans, daily videos with what’s going on in the market and really just look to guide, educate and fill the void of credibility in the space.

What has been your greatest achievement personally, and with TraderCobb? Try to separate the two.

My personal greatest achievement has been taking the chance on a hunch to go back to London when I really wanted to be in Australia to get the girl. We have 2 kids now and have been together for 13 years. It would have been so easy to just stay in Australia and forget but I hate not knowing and the risk was small, reward massive if it worked and it worked.

With TraderCobb it would be the community group we have. That group has remained mature, professional, fun and very focused. It’s a group of people trading the strategies I teach that are there to work with like-minded people and they are doing so well. Hardly anyone leaves and quality of support is just mind-boggling, the older members help the beginners without any issue at all and the trades I am seeing are getting better and better. I wanted to create something I never had when I started trading and it’s exceeded all expectations.

What are your plans with the company for the next 2–3 years? Where will you be in terms of achievements, platform, products, users, etc?

We want to expand and take this education to the world. We currently have moved into the Spanish language as a first step, have our hands in a news media company that has had its views growing over 100% per month since we took it on, are looking at a TV show and exchange to give what traders want. Currently, I am speaking with some very large exchanges about helping them to attract new customers and increase trading volumes through educational content to their members as well which is very exciting. We are also looking to bring an old sport to a new level, a sport I am passionate about with the biggest participation numbers in the world. It’s fishing, and it’s massive. Very exciting times ahead and a lot of work!

How big is your community and can you give us an overview of the courses you offer?

The community is still pretty small with around 150 dedicated traders in there, we have plenty of time for everyone. My goal is to see people leave when they have the skills and results they need to go it alone.

The courses touch on more than just trading strategy. People think that trading strategy is what it’s all about as a trader but it’s not. I teach from the ground up, covering routine, mindset, exercise, leverage, risk management which is THE most important aspect any trader will learn and record keeping so you can learn from your own trades. I then break every checkpoint of my strategies into individual parts to teach so it’s really easy to learn then put it all back together with lots of practical examples for you to test yourself on. It’s all online and it’s a lifetime membership when you purchase. I teach in a logical way, it’s very simple to understand, no crazy jargon, I am not trying to be the smartest guy in the room.

I teach 3 trading strategies based on what the market does. It either goes sideways then breaks, trends, pauses, and moves again or it moves rapidly. The strategies are made by the market for the market and are a literal checklist you use to find your trades. I have been trading with these strategies nearly 10 years no in their current form. I use 3 indicators and focus on understanding price more than anything. The feedback has been amazing and I have some fund managers you’d have heard of in my community that I won’t mention now but it’s a great feeling.

What kind of results do you produce for your clients and what have they achieved?

The best way to see this is to have a look at the testimonials on my website. I think the best result was 42:1 reward to risk on a trade that has been sent to me so far. That means for $100 risked on the trade they would get $4,200 back. Paid for their education and now they are one of my best students. See more here: https://Tradercobb.com/testimonials/

If you had to give props to one other cryptocurrency project or company apart from your own, whom would it be and why?

I would have to say Micky.com. They are really putting out great web-based news articles shared by many in the space and seem to get some pretty amazing exclusives. I know you said one but I am also putting my good friends at Nugget’s News in there as well. Great people putting out great content.

Where can we connect with you or support your business?

You can find me nearly anywhere you look online. First port of call would be the website www.TraderCobb.com. You can find my facebook accounts, Trader Cobb & Craig Cobb, on twitter TraderCobb, the same on Instagram and youtube. Finally, you can hear my daily interviews and market analysis on The Trader Cobb Crypto show, it’s on all the big platforms and last year we hit number 1 in the business and investment categories in 9 countries including the US, pretty stoked with that!

Do you have anything to add before we finish?

The first motivational quote I found in the first book I read at 15, we all should listen to this more:

“You don’t have to be great to get started but you have to get started to be great”

— Zig Ziglar
