Todd Mitchell, the founder, CEO, and head trader of Trading Concepts, is truly an inspiration to thousands of people, redefining possibilities and opening the doors of opportunity for Trading Concepts students.
For Todd, trading isn’t just a career or a business, it’s a lifestyle and a passion! He’s been at it nonstop for 30 years, dabbling in all of the different markets over the years, building his experience and skills, and mastering the parallels that make certain techniques work no matter what market you trade. As Todd says, “A chart is a chart, regardless of the financial instrument.”
With such a passion for trading (and so much expertise), it was only natural that Todd developed and launched the Trading Concepts coaching programs. Because of the financial freedom that trading provided in his own life, he wanted to spread that gift to other passionate traders.
Personally, Todd takes the most pride in being able to provide a life of freedom and flexibility for his family – spending quality time and travelling with them as often as he likes! As for his favorite parts of being a master trader, Todd cites intellectual stimulation, financial independence, the ability to give back to the community, and the self-satisfaction of knowing that the strategies will work – regardless of market health. He mostly trades Futures, specifically daytrading the S&P 500.
In his youth, Todd was a competitive bodybuilder, as well as a baseball and football athlete. Today, he still maintains that lifestyle with a focus on exercise and eating right, and believes that this kind of attitude and health-consciousness is essential to success in any profession. When he’s not trading, coaching, or running Trading Concepts, Todd spends his time with family, travelling, working out, and playing tennis.
Todd focuses on understanding above all other trading lessons – making sure students know that different strategies have different applications, but learning to read the natural ebb and flow of the markets is paramount!
His passionate approach to trading (and trading education) is the calling card of Trading Concepts, and his dedication to growing tomorrow’s top traders is the fuel that keeps the whole team moving forward, providing expert coaching and strategies for consistent profits in any market.
“Have an enormous amount of discipline, stick with your trading rules, detach your emotions from the money, admit when you’re wrong, and make reading pure price action your core foundational trading tool.”
