Traders' Working Lunch

A new way to learn; meet the experts for informal discussions at small table of 10, asking the questions you need answers to!

Hosted by Simon Campbell, the IX Traders’ Working Lunch is your opportunity to meet speakers and companies in a more relaxed and informal setting – seated around a table together.

Picture this: a cozy lunchtime setting where you can snag a seat (first come, first served) at tables hosted by our seasoned experts. Dive into informal discussions about trading strategies, trends, and insights—all while enjoying a complimentary buffet lunch.

Here’s the scoop: Each mentor will preside over their own table, offering invaluable guidance tailored to their expertise. With topics ranging from market analysis to risk management, there’s something for every trader to sink their teeth into.

Kicking off at 1.00pm, this fast-paced event aims to ensure everyone gets their slice of one-to-one time with the professional trading mentors.

Eli Yans, a qualified teacher, mnemonics expert and a photoreader, used these skills to analyse more than a decade of behaviour from hundreds of financial instruments in the stock market.Before becoming a very successful trader, he, like so many beginners lost all his money in trading, in particular, Apple stocks. This led him to conduct his own research without the bias of the books, tutorials and traditional trading methods which so many traders have become accustomed to. Tens of thousands of screenshots from the tick, 1-second, 5-second, 15-second and 1-minute charts, were meticulously analysed, trading tools were redesigned and trading theories were built, tested and retested, before writing the book, ‘Applecore: Trade with extreme prejudice’. – probably the most controversial book on trader training printed to date.
