Charlie Burton

Founder, Charlie Burton Trading

Charlie has been trading 24 years of which 19 have been full time. It was a result of a live trade-off at the London Forex Show that the BBC heard about Charlie. They were in the process of filming a documentary about trading and asked if they could film the event. After speaking with Charlie, the BBC asked if he would be willing to be filmed at home too and so it was that Charlie became one of the bright lights of that documentary, ‘Traders; Millions by the minute’. On that show, you see Charlie banking £700 on a trade in a couple of hours plus of course some of the extracurricular activities that the BBC wanted to make the show more entertaining! Ironically, the original trade-off they filmed never made it to the final cut, they seemed more interested in having film of him washing his Porsche! Charlie has subsequently been interviewed on BBC radio, the Financial Times, the Daily Telegraph, BBC’s The One Show and is also a regular guest and interviewer on Tip TV (now Core Finance).  He has also presented an many trading shows such as the World Money Show and London Investor, but also as far afield as Kazakhstan and even Bangladesh! In 2013, Charlie undertook a trading challenge to see if he could take a typical $10,000 trading account and turn it into $100,000 within 2 years. He achieved the goal but it took around 2 and a 1/2 years in the end but still a tremendous result to show people what can be achieved on a small account. Charlie has continued doing trading challenges to demonstrate the ups and downs of trading with high gearing. Charlie is a professional trader and manages money for investors via Pelican Asset Management. Charlie also runs the trader community www.charlieburtontrading.com
