About me
My Story

My name is Alan Edward, and I'm a Trader from the North West of England. 

I have developed and currently trade a longer-term Trend Following System, that trades a diversified portfolio of markets across 5 different sectors including Currencies, Equities, Commodities & Bonds.


I have also designed and trade Stock specific strategies as well as trading intraday using Technical analysis of the markets via my Price Action Strategies.


Trading all started for me after a family member told me about Forex and how there was 'No ceiling' to how much you could earn and you could do it all from a laptop'. And this came at a time when I was recovering from a serious operation. And had been off work for months.  So having lost money from being off work and then having the fear of losing my job, it was exactly what I needed to hear. My attention was grabbed...


Once I started learning, watching YouTube videos. It all seemed so easy, 'Just use this indicator and enter here' simple. And that worked for a while then when that stopped working,  I would jump into another strategy and so on. Then I would switch time frames, constantly change the parameters. EVERYTHING!

I ended making money and losing it, The process was very frustrating.

All I wanted was to be profitable, find the 'Holy Grail' Be in the 5%.

 After constantly watching the screen tick by tick. Going home with headaches every day. Not going anywhere, and losing thousands of pounds I decided the only way I was going to progress is to really learn...


“Nothing worth having comes easy.”  — ​Theodore Roosevelt

I made a promise to myself that I would sacrifice my whole year to invest in my education. I closed my account and began the process.


Genuinely, seeking to educate myself was the single best trading decision I ever made. It changed everything for me. I took the all-important steps, left my ego at the door and went for it.


I only read books by successful millionaire traders, I went to seminars, day trading events, online courses. I learned about systematic trading, price action, portfolio management, statistics. Squeezed every bit of knowledge I could.

From there, I stayed in, I backtested, then I forward test and repeated this EVERY SINGLE DAY! 

And you know what!? It was totally worth it!

It took my trading to another level (Including learning about myself, cheesy I know)

It saved me years of learning, and by the end of it, all the mistakes were ironed out all the usual jumping from strategy to strategy, never having correct risk & trade management, reacting with emotion instead of logic, and so on.

Once you know how to trade professionally and not like an amateur, the feeling is almost zen-like. Totally liberating! I am now the master of my own destiny, no one to answer to. I make my own choices. 

 'A smart person learns from his mistakes, but a truly wise person learns from the mistakes of others.' — ​Ken Schramm

And so the above quote can not say it any better, and I wish I would have known these wise words earlier. And that is why I want to help every single trader in my courses, my community to not have to go through the same mistakes as me. Cut through all the pain

I want to be able to save you all of the time and all of the money wasted and skip right through to profitability.

If I could give one piece of advice to myself when I started, it would be to learn from a pro, replicate what he does and cut out all the BS!

And that is the reason why I have set up my Youtube channel, free newsletter, along with mentoring traders who really want to learn but do not quite have the knowledge, the approach to trade successfully and with consistency, making all the usual mistakes, entering late, too early, no confidence in the system and so on.

If that sounds like you I can help

'For things to change, YOU have to change. For things to get better, YOU have to get better. For things to improve, YOU have to improve. When YOU grow, EVERYTHING in your life grows with you.' — ​Jim Rohn

Jim Rohn said it best, For things to change, YOU have to change. I was still making the same old mistakes, still losing, trading with no edge. So I asked myself..


Am I willing to change?

Will I let go of my ego?

Will I start to take this seriously and begin to get educated?'

Once I realised that I had to do things differently, everything changed for the better.



My Trades

Silver +4.07R


21B Strategy

There are a lot of fakes and fraudsters out there and I feel it is very important to be as transparent as possible with my students, I will share my trades taken and even my losses.


This is so important as many new traders or inconsistent ones believe you have to win every trade, this is simply not true. In fact I can lose around 60% in some systems I trade and still come out in profit. By using proper risk management and belief in my system, I can sleep well at night and not be phased by a row of losses. 

Soybean -0.41R


21B Strategy

So as you can see, losses happen the 'secret' is to keep losses small and let profits run. In the case of the 21B Strategy, I rarely ever get a full -1R Loss. This is because losses trades are killed instantly. And the signal for exiting is extremely simple and easy to follow. And the trade in Silver for example would have paid for the loss and still rewarded you with profit.. This is the power of proper trading! 

Knowledge is power, and understanding these the concepts of how and why systems work is key to establishing longevity.

 “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.” - Albert Einstein

Once I took the first steps, admitting that I was wrong.

Accepting I needed a different way and started taking full responsibility and start accepting that I need to go about things differently, This truly was the moment things got better.


Sounds too good to be true?

Steven, who’s feedback is below, thought so too, but he was tired of losing money...


Amazing Results!!

Take Paul for example.

He dropped me a message on Twitter explaining that he was struggling with his process and with gaining consistency.


We did a quick one to one to show him the tweaks to improve his trade management and within a few days was making gains!


And this is all because you have an edge in the markets, that is 'proven to to work'


And that's not all...


I am so confident, in my systems that I offer a money 100% money-back guarantee


To go further still, if you are unhappy for whatever reason I’ll not only refund you in-full as-per refund policy, but I’ll also continue to work with you and guide you. You put your trust in me and that means something, so I will not simply quit. I know trading is a rollercoaster and that it has its up and downs. Your success and results are the priority.

This is the Divergent Trader promise!

Refund Policy

Refunds are provided on a two-quarter performance-based basis. We want you to be satisfied with your purchase but we also want you to give your best effort to apply your chosen strategy or strategies. In order to qualify for a refund, you must provide proof of at least 500 backtested trades recorded in a spreadsheet, using one of the strategies that we teach in the program you are currently involved in. You must provide proof of a written trading plan. You must provide proof of at least 1 month of demo trading using the trading plan you have provided us with. And correctly implemented your chosen strategy or strategies across the two-quarter period.

After completing this work, we are so convinced that you will be satisfied with your purchase that, if not, we will give you a full refund of your initial purchase. (You must have proof of all the above to apply of any kind)

This measure is in place to prevent piracy in the form of customers simply purchasing, digesting the information and claiming a refund.

But, this guarantee is not for people who want to "tryout" the training course. We have a very strict refund policy that you must follow in order to apply for a refund

If you are serious about trading then the above criteria will have been implemented,  if you are not driven enough to do whatever it takes to become a consistently profitable trader, then I wish you good luck. But I want to save my time for only the serious traders...

Just Imagine...

Just imagine if you were a consistently profitable trader, you knew your rules and how to follow them? No guessing, no emotion just pure confidence and conviction in yourself...


How would that make you feel? 

How would that affect your life?

And what if it was as simple as just taking one of my profitable strategies, implementing, following the rules and sticking to it and by doing so creating a second income? Or what about opening your statements at the end of the month? And not dreading it... And being able to take that dream vacation you have been thinking of? I think you would be pretty darn happy. Well, I don't know how to break this to you, but it's ABSOLUTELY POSSIBLE!


When Would Be A Good Time to start?

I remember when I started I had no idea of what to do and spent far too long losing money and time.

If I would have had a mentor to show and explain all the things I was missing, my learning would have been halved by tenfold. So that's why I have made my strategies available, I want to help the next me to get to that level.

I want to help as many traders as I can to enjoy a fulfilled life that they deserve!

As I see it You Have Three Options...


Option 1: 


You could keep losing, constantly searching and scouring the internet trying to find the 'Holy Grail' of strategies


Option 2: 


Do Absolutely Nothing... Accept that your current circumstances are as good as it gets and suck it up.

Option 3: 


You invest in yourself and give my strategies a try and save yourself the time and effort, and finally begin to take control and learn how to become a profitable trader!

What is going to be easier for you? Plus you are protected by my legendary 365-days money-back guarantee.
