Gordon Scott is an active trader and investor. He has coached individuals for seven years, and been a professional teacher to every age group at some point in his career. He learned the art of investing from a personal coach, a former NASDAQ market maker, who taught him an insider’s perspective. From that experience he went on to become a licensed broker, a proprietary day trader and a full-time trader in securities, options, futures, and forex. He began coaching as a way to further his own learning and simultaneously help others.
He earned his Chartered Market Technician (CMT) designation awarded by the Market Technicians Association to those who demonstrate an aptitude in analyzing a wide variety of technical studies over different markets.
Over the past seven years he has coached hundreds of individual students with account sizes ranging from 4 to 8 figures. He has not only taught something to each of them but learned from them as well, which has improved his own investing activities. Gordon studied Instructional Design and worked for IBM for 10 years designing coursework and documentation for more effective learning.
He develops training courses for investing and trading education ranging from simple portfolio management, all the way to daytrading futures contracts. He is sought after as a consultant to trading experts who want to development their education programs. He brings to Beacon Learning Group an unusual mix of highly developed talents in both teaching and trading.
