Petr’s trading beginnings can be traced back to 2008.
After finishing his studies of the statistical processes in Sweden, he got an opportunity to work in Paris, where he began to focus on studying automated trading strategies for futures markets.
He soon found out that he can widely use his knowledge of statistics and the theory of probability in trading thanks to the automated trading principles. In his first year of live trading in 2013, he had been able to increase his trading portfolio by 72% return a year.
Passionate algo-trader and educator, Petr has on his record hundreds of online seminars, 1on1’s, live classes where he’s been passing his best know-how.
In 2015, while teaching one of his live classes, he’s been offered an opportunity to co-found a Hedge Fund. He built his team of mathematicians, statisticians, programmers, and data scientists.
Thanks to that 5-year professional experience, he has built extensive know-how in algorithmic trading. He has been actively contributing to leading Czech financial magazines over the years, and his most valuable course on Building Automated Trading Strategies with TradeStation is widely recognized and appreciated.
Based in Prague, the Czech Republic, Petr still enjoys sharing his valuable know-how with his students. In his spare time, not working on his other projects, he enjoys spending his time with family and friends.
