Jacob bought his first stock when he was 14 years old with help from his parents. Later, when he was old enough to open his own trading account, he started trading the forex markets.

Today he trades both manually and automated trading strategies. He bought his first commercially available EA in 2014 and has been fascinated by automation, algorithmic trading and building.

Additionally, Jacob is an entrepreneur and has run other companies and been involved in other ventures. He has been working at some of the biggest brands in the world and with hundreds of clients over the last few years.
