Joe Ross created Trading Educators to teach students how to trade



Joe Ross loved to travel and enjoy the great outdoors


We are sad to inform you of the passing of Master Trader Joe Ross on the morning of Tuesday, September 7, 2021 at the age of 87. He went peacefully doing what he loved, by taking care of Loretta, his wife of 62 years of marriage and teaching his students from every continent how to trade. Joe has always been a free spirit and loved the trading world being his own boss. He quickly learned that teaching others was his true passion. The joy of educating those about a system in which he had true confidence and to see others come into their own. That was his greatest pleasure. He was proud to be a devoted Christian and combined spirituality with trading.

Our condolences to our traders and students for the loss of a mentor and close friend, some would even go as far as saying a "father-figure" and he wore that title proudly. 

Please share with us your stories and pictures or reply to this email and an online Celebration of Life will take place early next year. Right now, we need to make sure Loretta is taken care of so please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

Joe's spirit is forever with us as his work through Trading Educators will continue to impact and teach traders. We will resume publishing our newsletter next week, just as Joe would want us to.

Stay safe, healthy and cherish your family time.

“You know I trade just what I see, and nothing more and less. I cannot see one thing and trade another.” Master Trader Joe Ross




Dear Traders,

Master Trader Joe Ross passed away September 2021, and prior years he was continously sending me folders filled with Chart Scan and Trading Articles. The emails would be titled "More to follow" and I would reply, "Keep'em coming". I am calling these lessons "hidden vault" material because if Joe were still alive, this is exactly what would be shown in your inbox every Friday morning. This is not regurgitated material; this is new stuff written by Joe or as he would refer to it with such passion, "This is good stuff". 

As we continue to receive newsletter sign ups, new students from every continent will start to learn trading Joe's way especially in this challenging market. This is where he would reinforce to his students, yes, that includes you, that learning to trade is possible even in this environment, "A chart, is a chart, is a chart".  His writings will stand the test of time to provide teaching lessons and guidance.

The proceeds of Trading Educators will continue to support Joe's wife, Loretta, of 62 years of marriage, which she is our number one priority.  We thank everyone with continued support and prayers for her well-being in late stages of dementia.

As expressed in the past editions, the trading world has lost a unique and passionate trader and his material will continue to be relevant.  Let's start learning to trade Joe Ross' way with our future Chart Scan publications. I am here to help, so feel free to email me with any comments, questions or concerns.

All the best,
Joe Ross' daughter Martha Ross-Edmunds
