About Jacob Holm

Jacob says “At just 14, I dived into the stock market, but my first investment vanished when the company went bust. Over 20 years later, I’m still in the game. I’ve traded forex manually and algorithmically, managing my live and funded accounts. Alongside my co-founder, I now run an automated trading company.

“Starting out young, I faced the ups and downs of trading, both technically and emotionally. Recognizing the need for a different approach, I delved deep into my trader mindset, drawing inspiration from Stoicism and Buddhism. This shift brought a profound transformation, not only to my trading, but to my life overall.

“Through the Mindful Market Mastery platform, I aim to help others master the mental game of trading, using the principles that transformed my own trading journey. Join me on the path to consistent and successful trading without risking all your capital.”
