About Blue Point Trading
Founded in 2009, Blue Point Trading is a unique boutique proprietary trading firm which provides above average trading returns for its investors through its managed fund. Our core values for our company are: transparency, trustworthiness, team oriented and aggressive risk management of our investor’s funds.
How do we provide above market performance with aggressive risk management? Primarily three ways. First we spread risk of the investor’s funds over a team of traders and trading strategies. So no one trader can harm the fund. This allows us as well, to profit in all market conditions – as different trading strategies at different times can provide. “The power of the many is greater than the power of one.” Secondly, we have new technology in place to ensure that strict trader targets and controls are adhered to (via our real-time risk manager) as well as provide trader tools (for example the Trading Floor and the Toolbox) to enable trader success. Finally, Blue Point Trading has in place an “engine” to recruit and build this team of traders to perform the trading. We accomplish this via our unique Trader Programme.
As many followers of Blue Point Trading and experienced traders know well, there is no “Holy Grail” in trading. Trading is a hard job – and it is a full-time job. Blue Point Trading does not have any one specific trade trigger, neither does it seek one. Every potential trader has something to offer – from the novice to the most experienced. We do not just offer trader training – we also understand what makes a good trader and can manage and coach a trader to bring them to their full potential – while making money for the trader, our investors and Blue Point Trading.
