About Us

The TSC philosophy

Our process solves two of the most important problems every trader has to overcome…

1. How do you achieve long-term consistency and manage your trading emotions in what is an ever-changing set of market conditions?

2. How do I know who I am working with has the experience and track record to help me?

The TSC philosophy goes the whole way to solve these issues – through hours of live trading, live coaching, research, testing and real time data collection, as well as personal development and high-performance study. As a professional money manger and team of expert traders, we live and breathe our philosophy for ourselves and for the traders we work with.Our community is a real tapestry of diverse backgrounds, experiences, and ambitions. From polar explorers to World Cup rugby players, former city traders to single mothers and fathers, and individuals from all walks of life. We come together with this common purpose, supporting and learning from one another along the way

About Ali – founder of TSC

Ali began trading Forex, commodities and index futures in 2002. Fast-forward 22 years and he is now one of the most sought-after trading coaches in the UK, as well as successfully trading an FCA-regulated managed fund account alongside his own portfolio.

Ali has worked with traders from all walks of life and has taken traders with no previous experience to double-digit monthly percentage returns.

“​​Nearly all traders, whether they like it or not , have to overcome emotional hurdles and get rid of their bad habits.  This is BEFORE they can successfully deploy a trading system they can have faith in and stick to.

In short... The system  may be proven to work but MOST times, the trader can't work it .

The problem so many traders have is they are looking for a technical solution to solve what is often a psychological problem" 

This is where me and my team come in, as we can help deliver both.

Martin Dimitrov – Professional Trader and Coach

As an ex-martial artist, Martin draws upon hours of testing and trading experience to deliver a direct, actionable coaching style.

He has developed a highly versatile risk-reward methodology that he deploys both with his manual and algorithmically trading styles. Martin runs TSC’s early morning day trading room each weekday with his unparalleled level of detail.

His personal story from landing in London with no job or success in trading to full-time trader is nothing short of inspirational! He now lives in the beautiful German countryside with his wife and two children.

Sarah - Operations & Customer Service

Ali’s longstanding better half is the one who keeps Traders Support Club running smoothly. Sarah manages all administration, payments, and membership upgrades. She is readily available to assist with any questions you have, ensuring you have access to everything you need to make the most of the support and coaching available.

Jeroen Hanselaar - Professional Trader and TSC Trainer

As an ex-professional dancer, Jeroen had tried other trader training companies, all of which fell short of what he was looking for before joining TSC.

Once with us, he fully embraced the TSC philosophy of strategy, data collection, and mindset. He absorbed what he learned from us and, with the help of Ali, developed his own successful mechanical strategies.

Fast forward three years, and he is now prop firm funded, alongside building his own trading account. With his rapidly growing expertise and warm, generous nature, he has generously dedicated his own time to creating two training programs for TSC, now passing on his mechanical trading knowledge and expertise through monthly coaching sessions.

why us?

We guide you through each of the key four learning phases...

PHASE 1

Interpretation

Here the trader is trying to process and understand what information to use and how it is applicable.  We make sure you only learn a small series of proven tools and insights

PHASE 2

Implementation

This is where the trader has to take what they have learnt and apply it live in the market.  We make sure you have multiple feedback loops to improve what you do and how you do it – quickly!

PHASE 3

Realisation

You become aware of what needs refining and improving. You find out what your actual strengths and weaknesses are. We work on these with you through comprehensive data a feedback

PHASE 4

Personalisation

This is the key to long-term success. Every trader we work with will create a personalised element to what they do. The trader then truly owns what they do and they’re no longer at the mercy of the market and their emotions
