Trusted by the more than four thousand people who have completed its training, Black Sheep Academy is positioned as one of the leading trading training academies.
The economic situation leaves no doubt: inflation, rising prices for basic foodstuffs, fuel and energy, are hitting homes in Spain and beyond our borders, pushing people to seek formulas to generate additional income that allows them to lead a decent life.
In this sense, many people are looking for a solution in Trading. The difficulty here is that speculative investing in the markets requires a clear, consistent, winning strategy and proper implementation.
Black Sheep Academy brings a different proposal from what we usually see on the market: it invites us to go against the current, not to follow the investment formulas used by the majority, but to go in the wake of large institutional funds and, more importantly, gives us the guideline so that we don’t have to risk our own savings in the process.
Today we speak with the three founding partners of Black Sheep Academy: Jonatan Higueruelo. Professional trader for over 10 years. Former wealth manager of American family offices, Advisor to several Financial Brokers such as MigBank (now Swissquote), Alpari Group and FXCM; Ivn Gonzalez, former CEO for Spain of the German group Mex Asset Management, worked as a futures asset manager in companies such as Swifttrade or Swissquote Bank; and with César Barriga, futures trader of US and German Treasury bonds for more than 12 years and complex structures used by major banks such as Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Deutsche Bank, Commerzbank, among others. Named Best Stock Trader with Forex Algorithm 2010-2013 at FXCM.
Trading has been all the rage for several years, but can you really make money trading?
In trading you can make money, what happens is that there is a lot of smoke in this business. Every day we see, with astonishment, Trading formulas that promise absurd returns, impossible to achieve, at least constantly, and this is essential for a Trader: to be constant in his income.
Of course, these proposals are very attractive to many people. To generate a monthly return of 10% or to double the account in a few months is something very desired by many people, but the harsh reality prevails: according to the data provided by the brokers themselves, which are the platforms of intermediation between traders and markets, only 5% of people who operate are profitable in the medium to long term.
The problem is that people get carried away by these promises of absurd returns and start operating without a clear method, without the necessary training, and end up with all their capital in no time.
And that’s when brokers earn because they commission all the trades that traders make; false gurus or false schools who, on the basis of promises of absurd returns, sell their products or services to merchants; and institutional investment funds are winning, what we call in our jargon strong hands, those who follow professional, advanced, market-facing techniques and tools, who do the opposite of all those little amateur traders who lose.
Trading is a zero-sum game: for some to win, others must lose.
Before you mention the question of profitability, what kind of profitability can we expect if we want to make money in medium-long term trading?
Returns of the 10% monthly type, which are promised by fake gurus or fake academies, are absurd and illogical. That would be equivalent to beating the market by 120% per year, which even Warren Buffet cannot achieve.
We have students who generate between 2% and 4% per month, and that’s already a lot. The difference is that our students don’t invest their savings, but third-party capital, amounts far greater than what it would mean to work with their own savings, that’s where the key lies.
From Black Sheep Academy we explain to them step by step how they should do it, learning the methodology and the use of tools to operate successfully in the medium and long term, with good risk management.
This methodology consists of following the methodologies and investment tools of the big funds, which are positioned in the opposite direction of the majority of the losing Traders, that is why we are called Black Sheep, because we are the black sheep that goes to the against the majority (losers) of the market.
Once they learn the methodology, they practice it for several months until they generate a track record, a trading history that they can show to the investment funds that provide them with capital for generate profitability. Finally, we teach them how to locate these funds and use them properly.
How much money can you earn by trading? Can we live from it?
We always talk about generating additional income, we don’t encourage them to quit their jobs. We have students who generate their first 300 per month in just 6 months, but a living from trading is something that takes longer and depends, to a large extent, on the level of commitment and dedication of each.
How much time should you devote to trading per day?
One hour a day is more than enough. That is, if the correct methodology is followed. The problem of many people is precisely that they overexploit, that is to say, they spend all day in front of the screens trying to enter the market, and this causes them to make a lot of mistakes and lose their silver. With the right system, that doesn’t happen.
Earlier, you talked about tools. Are they important in trading?
Of course, they are important, they give you that extra information that allows you to make the right decisions when trading. The problem is that, in Trading, there is a
multitude of robots, indicators, models that bring a lot of confusion to the investor; and many companies whose only job is to sell the novice Trader all these tools, which will not help him at all, and which will lead him to make bad decisions.
At Black Sheep Academy, we only use tools used by major institutional investors, with proven performance and profitability. Our students use these tools on a daily basis, and they are an essential part of their successful trading.
In short, with the right education and the right tools, trading is a great opportunity to maintain or raise the standard of living for many people.
