About

Neil Smith started Smith Trading Group in 2013 when his personal trading account beat his own expectations for consistency, low risk and returns.
Neil has a career in financial technology and has worked for some of the leading investment banks & hedge funds (Credit Suisse, Barclay’s Capital, Goldman’s & Man Group to name a few). He has also appeared on US national television series World Business Review & Financial Review Weekly.
He has been trading the markets since 1996 with his first trade being a discounted IPO offer from Orange PLC (The mobile telecommunications company). He sold his shares sometime later for a small profit. Since then he has spent time studying market behavior and various trading systems. In 2000 he dedicated himself to trading futures with a 120% return over an 18 month period.
More recently Neil has focused on FX markets and specifically automating his successful FX strategy – Acorn.
