James (or ‘Jamie’ to his friends) has enjoyed great success with a number of UK financial firms and has an enviable pedigree spanning over 30 years. He began his career as a local, grassroots financial planner before spending several years specialising in training new advisers. It took some convincing for James to leave teaching behind and finally progress into more senior management roles. It was during his period of teaching and coaching new advisers that James discovered a passion for writing and sharing his knowledge, a passion he continues to indulge in here at ForexTraders.com. James has a particular interest in trading psychology and is a close follower and advocate of Dr. Van K. Tharp’s trader personality test, identifying personally as a ‘Planning Trader’. James is always keen to discuss the trader mindset and help others to tweak their style and approach in order to be as successful as possible. Despite numerous sports injuries over the years James is still a keen squash player, and he was a much-loved bar manager at his local club before becoming its chairman. He is a close personal friend of one of our other contributors, Joshua Crafter, but James is yet to successfully persuade Joshua that squash, not tennis, is the superior racquet sport.
