Ian Murphy is a successful private trader, trading his own account using trend-following, swing-trading and day-trading strategies. He has studied various facets of trading with a number of experienced traders, including psychology and trading methods with Dr. Alexander Elder. He has also worked closely on technical analysis and trading strategies with Kerry Lovvorn.
Throughout his trading career, Ian has maintained detailed records and a diary documenting the highs and lows of his trading experiences. Over time, he identified the most important aspects of the journey as he began to interact with other traders. The lessons learned have now been brought together in his new book, Way of the Trader.
Based in Ireland, after college Ian Murphy trained in electronics before travelling in Europe, North Africa and Central America. He returned to Ireland to work in the metal recycling industry, eventually specializing in precious metals. This brought him into contact with the financial markets and he has been an active trader ever since.
