Trading is not easy but it can be simple

I'm a full-time day trader, trading instructor & mentor. I'm also the founder of Spike Trader Academy, a professional trading school, where we offer education, proprietary technology, software, mentorship and exclusive resources for traders worldwide.

I've started trading in 2007, and it didn't take long to realize that trading is not easy, or at least not as easy as some people show on social media. For each stage of my trading journey, there was resistance, doubts, fear, confusion, and obstacles. I thought about giving up many times, but something was telling me to keep moving forward deep inside.

It took me years to become a consistently profitable trader. And that only happened when I decided to learn from people who knew more than me, which is the only way to reduce the learning curve, avoid failure and develop the right trading skills.

Trading is not easy, but it can be simple. After years of learning and practicing, I developed my trading method, the Simple Trading Formula, the same methodology that I teach at Spike Trader Academy.

The Simple Trading Formula was the critical factor to help me achieve positive results month after month and leave my corporate job as a Senior Director for a Multinational Corporation to start my new career as a full-time day trader.

My goal was to be my own boss, conquer freedom of time and location and make money by doing what I love. 

When I first began my trading career, I thought my journey would be lonely. I was wrong.

Later I discovered my passion for teaching trading and seeing people just like you become consistently profitable daytraders. 

I've devoted most of my life to developing myself as a consistently profitable trader and conquering my freedom. Now, I'm obsessed with helping others, like you, do the same!


Here is what people are saying about me

To say I have been around the block when it comes to trading education would be an understatement. I've been trying to become a profitable daytrader for over 10 years. Simple is a game-changer and what Marcelo is teaching us gave me the confidence and results to pursue trading full time. The education and community here are priceless. Marcelo and everyone are helpful, and the value delivery could not be better!

When I stumbled upon Marcelo on YouTube, I was instantly hooked by his brutal honesty how difficult it is to become a Consistently Profitable Trader. I joined Spike Trader Academy and worked through all lessons. This was the first time in my life I traded constantly profitable for a month. This was not a coincidence. What Marcelo teaches works. Simple. Besides, he is such a good person, trader, and teacher.

Peter J.

I think it was Einstein who said, “If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.” Marcelo's ability to decode and unravel all the noise, lies, and confusion surrounding the financial markets is unique. His tools and processes are world-class. Marcelo is offering me pure knowledge that I know it would take me years to figure out by myself. The value added is incredible.

I bumped into Marcelo's content from watching YouTube videos. His lectures are clear, concise, easy to understand, and packed with examples. I started trading by myself 2 Years ago and never got to a position of being a profitable trader. I wish I had gotten into Spike Trader Academy right at the beginning because now I believe that I can get there. 

Andreas F.

I can't say enough about how incredible it has been to be a part of the Spike Trader community. Marcelo and the team are incredibly talented, honest, and transparent about the ups and downs of trading. He is super supportive and goes above and beyond with his mentoring role. Great content, exceptional psychological support, and by the way... RADAR is an amazing tool.

Marc D.

The best day trading curriculum available, hands down. The internet is full of fraudulent people out there. The industry of day trading is even worse because of the reputation it has with selling get richget-rich schemes. Its reputation  Marcelo is the complete opposite of all these snake oil salesmen. He's transparent and created something unique.  I'm impressed with the BRAVER, his mental system.
