A unique proprietary trading firm, founded in 2009

Blue Point Trading is a unique, global, boutique proprietary trading firm. Our goal is to offer a training service to new and existing traders, aimed at improving their success in the Forex and CFD markets.  Our philosophy is rooted in strong core values: transparency, trustworthiness, team-work and aggressive risk management of private investors’ funds.

How do we provide above-market performance in tandem with aggressive risk management? We do so in three ways, primarily.
Firstly, we spread the risk of our funds over a team of traders and trading strategies. Consequently, no single trader can harm the fund. This allows us to profit in all market conditions, as different trading strategies are appropriate at different times. We believe the power of many is greater than the power of one. Secondly, we have new technology in place to ensure that traders adhere to strict targets and controls (via our real-time risk manager). We also provide Trader Tools (i.e. Trade Plans in the Trader Toolbox or in the  educational aspect of our Trader Trainee Programme for enrolled Trader Trainees) to facilitate trader success. Finally, Blue Point Trading has in place an engine that recruits and builds a strong, competent team of traders. We accomplish this via our unique Trader Trainee Programme.

As many followers of Blue Point Trading and experienced traders know well, there is no Holy Grail in trading. Trading is a challenging job, which commonly demands full-time commitment. 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 trader. We do not just offer trader training; we also understand what makes a good trader and we have the ability to manage and coach traders and to unlock their full potential while generating income for the trader, our investors and Blue Point Trading.

Our History

Founded by William Thompson and Julius van Sambeck in 2009, Blue Point Trading has a rich 6 year experience it can look back to. After the successful launch of a Virtual Office for beginning and experienced Traders, we quickly recognised the need and demand for physical trade floor presences around the world to globally recruit, train and gather a team of traders. As a result, we started our internationalisation and continue to add new trade floors around the world. Please review our Offices page for more information on our locations.
