In a recent interview on the Bespoke Funding Trader podcast, they shared the inspiring journey of a trader named Suhaib. Hailing from Burnley, the 25-year-old trader shared the ups and downs of his trading career, culminating in his success with Bespoke Funding. Suhaib’s introduction to trading was unconventional, sparked by a pop-up ad on a dodgy movie website. Intrigued by the promise of making money from home, he delved into the world of binary options. However, the initial success of turning £250 into £800 was short-lived as he quickly lost it all. Undeterred, Suhaib then ventured into MLM, joining a company called Wealth Generators. Unimpressed by the emphasis on recruitment over trading, he left the MLM space, opting to focus on his university studies for a while.
Bespoke Funding Trader Suhaib InterviewFast forward to 2019, Suhaib, now pursuing a degree in business management, rediscovered his passion for trading. A chance encounter with a YouTube video featuring Akil Stokes, a prominent figure in TierOneTrading, reignited his interest. Suhaib immersed himself in learning technical analysis and practicing on a demo account, leading to his decision to trade live in April 2020. His first month of live trading resulted in a break-even outcome, a significant win in Suhaib’s eyes. Throughout 2020, he turned a £1,000 live account into an impressive £15,000, solidifying his dedication to the craft. Suhaib’s trading education was largely influenced by Akil Stokes and Jason Graystone, both members of TierOneTrading. Additionally, he delved into trading psychology with books like “Trading in the Zone” and “The Disciplined Trader” by Mark Douglas. Joining Bespoke Funding caught Suhaib’s attention through Instagram. Intrigued by the performance-based evaluation and transparent funding process, he successfully passed Bespoke’s evaluation, marking a new chapter in his prop trading journey. Since becoming funded by Bespoke Funding, Suhaib has approached trading with a heightened sense of responsibility and a focus on protecting capital. His disciplined mindset and adherence to his trading plan have contributed to his success with Bespoke Funding.
