Known as the only Four-Time World Trading Champion (2008, 2009, 2010, and 2012), Andrea Unger is a full-time professional trader since 2001 and honorary member of SIAT (Italian Society of Technical Analysis, a branch of IFTA). Appreciated author, he is often invited as a speaker throughout Europe, America, and Asia.
THREE REASONS YOU SHOULD NOT BE HERE.
Hi, I’m Andrea Unger.
I always love the “about me” page on websites like this because they’re written in the third person …even though they’re typically written by the the owner of the site.
So after Andrea Unger made several attempts to sound smarter than he really is by writing about himself in the third person, he quickly abandoned that approach and decided to write this page like it was a letter to a friend.
Which …in many ways, it is.
Anyway – what do you want to know?
I was born in 1966. I live in a small town near Ascoli Piceno, Italy with my wife, Nadia, and four kids.
I’m guessing that’s not the kind of stuff you’re looking for.
You’re probably wondering,
Is this guy worth my time and attention?
For many readers, my answer is NO.
For some reason, people equate “trading online” to “get rich quick”.
I get it. That’s what attracted me to trading in 2001 (more on that later).
I thought it would be easy money and I’d have thousands coming in every day …on autopilot.
Well, it wasn’t easy money.
I do have consistent revenue coming in every day …often on auto pilot …but it took lots of work, frustration, and perseverance to get there.
…And it still takes work to keep it all running.
So if you’re not prepared to commit to roughly ten times more effort than you’re expecting, I’m not your guy.
No, I don’t sell Black Box Expert Advisors. But here’s why I’m telling you this.
Start going down the Trading “rabbit hole”, and you’ll see all kinds of ads and articles about free accounts, how to get rich easily with forex & binary options, and all kinds of hype on the “latest loopholes” for “gaming the system”.
Does some of it work?
Probably. Surely there are professional signal vendors. But if you rely on that, you don’t have a trading business. You have an income stream that’s supported by an unsustainable gimmick.
And that is a waste of time. If you want to waste time go see a movie. It’s more fun.
It’s important you understand what I’m telling you.
I can help you, I just won’t. I’m capable of it, but I refuse to do it.
Because when I hear someone say, “What’s the easiest way”, what I’m really hearing is, “I’m not fully invested in the long term success of my own trading business …and am therefore not fully invested in my long term success.”
And that really translates to “I don’t want to work”.
Look, trading is HARD WORK. Yes, when it’s all up and running, it can be just like you imagined: Passive revenue and money while you sleep.
But that takes HARD WORK to create and it takes HARD WORK to maintain.
Can you believe I just told you flat out that you’re going to receive blatant sales pitches from me?
Well, why wouldn’t I tell you?
I mean c’mon – This website is about what people call a “trading guru”. Info-products are there to be sold. I will try to sell you something and I won’t be subtle about it.
However – it’s always preceded by really valuable material you can use immediately.
The idea is you’ll say, “Man, this free stuff really works. I think I’ll try the paid stuff.”
Pretty simple, right?
I call it the old “Demonstrate You Can Help Them By Actually Helping Them” trick.
Works like a charm.
But you still might be wondering …
Well, the smartest thing to do is to just get some of my free materials.
If you like it, you’ll probably like my trainings.
If you don’t like it, you won’t.
But I think I’m supposed to do the whole “self aggrandizing biography” thing now so here goes:
I started my Trading career in the late '90s buying stocks on tips from colleagues. My first order through the bank was simply ridiculous as I demonstrated to have no idea about what I was doing. There wasn't yet an easy access to the ton of information on the internet so I had to discover things the old, slow way.
Did I make money?
I did make money … but then I lost much more…
Then some years later I read about incredible gains of some guys trading the markets on instruments called “covered warrants”. I immediately wanted to be part of the game and I started buying some of those things.
I made money again.
I felt smart again and started feeling the sensation of being rich. It did not last that much though as gains of a whole week could be canceled by a single bad day.
Yet, I did not want to quit.
By observing the realtime data flow of the covered warrants I discovered their quotes were delayed. To cut a long story short, I recognized that was a video game catching the deal before it was gone, all in a few seconds of delay.
Buy what you know should be priced more. That was the game, and it worked fine. But I understood it could not last forever as banks would not keep on showing me the money.
So I tried to scalp the markets and that was really painful. I tried to position trade the market and that was painful, too.
“I’m not a quitter, I’m a clever guy with maths skills”, this is what I was repeating myself. So I decided to start developing trading systems, I got the software and started mixing up every type of indicator known to man ...to end up building tons of incredible losers.
Then, one day, a friend of mine showed me how he was building trading systems... It was so simple, so basic, but it worked. Such a small and unexpected input changed my life completely and led me to still be here several years later. Much more experienced, with understanding of how those simple principles could be adapted to fast changing markets and how to setup a portfolio of systems taking care of my account.
In 2004 I also attended a workshop of trading legend Larry Williams. That experience gave me the final commitment and conviction that “trading for a living” could be achieved.
Today many consider me “as” Larry Williams and I’ve been invited as a speaker all over the world thanks to my four victories at the World Cup Trading Championships.
My main focus is to help you turn your trading into profit by using automation. I’m the creator of something called The Unger Method™ which is a fancy way of saying, “Developing and Automating your trading systems in a scientific manner.”
It is, in my opinion, the Holy Grail of systematic trading.
I also focus on your trading mindset – which is really a fancy way of saying, “Being Cool When You Trade Or You'll End Up Blowing Your Account.”
I do this by showing you the best way to automate your trading before stress burns you out.
