FOREX & Commodities Speaker/ Investor
Ali Crooks is LEA’s lead FOREX & Commodities presenter and has been trading for the last sixteen years. After a shaky start losing over £5,000 in just over 5 weeks Ali knew he had to learn to trade properly. He started by trading US futures every afternoon whilst working a shift job during the morning under the guidance of his trading mentor. Since then Ali has gone on to work with some of the top FOREX and Commodities traders, both in the UK and in the US, with many of them now his close friends. He is head trader and trainer at Legacy Education UK and founded Traders Support Club.
“I focus my trading around two trend based methodologies that I have refined over a five year period. I have
traded successfully through one bear and two bull markets and I still spend time working with and learning
from some of the best traders and investors around the world. I help all types of traders, at all levels,
ditch their bad habits, realise how to approach trading correctly, step over their emotional hurdles, trade
for real and get them to grow their accounts in a consistent way.”
In 2011 Ali was asked by Rich Dad Education to be part of their board of Global Advisors where he shared with over 2800 delegates, his skills, insights and passion for Forex trading. He has been asked to speak and coach all over the world and has been a keynote-trading speaker, sharing the stage with the likes of Robert Kiyosaki, James Caan, Mike Maloney, Dr John DeMartini, Erin Brockovich, Kelly Holmes MBE and Penny Power OBE.
More recently Ali was one of only two traders willing to trade his own account live in front of 400 eager delegates at the London Forex Show. Recently Ali was asked by Jordan Belfort to speak alongside him at one of his exclusive events specifically to share his knowledge and application of his trading strategies. He is the co–author of the book Madness of Money and is the one of the UK’s most sought after trading coach and mentor.
Ali is a step dad to two children and enjoys various sports including water skiing, skiing and regularly trains hard at his local strength gym.
He puts his success down to the fact he is just an average guy with very un-average goals and ambitions who has learned and applied from the best!
