A little about Plan B…

Mark Walas

After more than twenty years running IT training businesses, Mark decided to embark on a new career and learned to trade the markets. After attending several courses, he spent the next few years developing and enhancing his trading skills. Mark says “I learned best in a small group led by a trader, trading live in the markets”.

During a period working for another trader training company, he taught several thousand people how to start trading. Mark is now a full time trader and decided that it seemed a logical next step to combine his extensive training background and trading skills to good effect.

Plan B Trading was incorporated in 2011.
