Master Trader Joe Ross


Joe Ross has been trading and investing since his first trade at the age of fourteen, and is a well-known Master Trader and Investor for over five decades. He has survived all the up and downs of the markets because of his adaptable trading style, using a low-risk approach that produces consistent profits.  Joe Ross is the creator of the Ross Hook™, and has set new standards for low-risk trading with his concepts of The Law of Charts™ and the Traders Trick Entry™.

Joe was a private trader and investor for much of his life, but a serious health situation in the late 1980's caused him to shift his focus, and that is when he decided to share his knowledge. After his recovery, he founded Trading Educators in 1988, to teach aspiring traders how to make profits using his trading approach.

Joe Ross has written twelve major books, and countless articles and essays about trading. All his books have become classics, and have been translated into many different languages. His students from around the world number in the thousands. He has a huge file of letters containing thanks and appreciation from students on every continent. As one student, a successful trader, wrote: "Your mastery of teaching is even greater than my mastery of trading."

Joe Ross holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of California at Los Angeles. He did his Masters work in Computer Sciences at the George Washington University extension in Norfolk, Virginia. With over five decades of trading and investing, Joe has personally mentored the traders affliated with Trading Educators to uphold his philosophy and examples.


Joe's philosophy for helping traders is:


"Teach our students the truth in trading —
teach them how to trade."

"Give them a way to earn while they learn —
realizing that it takes time to develop a successful trader."


Joe sets forth the mission of Trading Educators as follows:

  • To show aspiring futures traders the truth in trading by teaching them how to read a chart so that they can successfully trade what they see, and by revealing to them all of the insider knowledge they need in order to understand the markets.
  • To enable them to trade profitably by training them to properly manage their trades as well as their mindset and self-control.


To accomplish our mission for our students we educate them so that they know and understand:
