Meet the staff at MDS Financial Group Limited and this month will feature our Education Manager Jeff Cartridge.
Jeff’s association with the markets started in 1998 when the technology boom was in full swing and making money trading shares, appeared to be very easy. This changed dramatically in 2000 when the internet bubble burst and the following two years saw the markets fall heavily. Jeff decided to expand his knowledge so that he could make money in different market conditions and learnt about options, warrants and contracts for difference (CFDs) and began trading these instruments with some success.
The market recovery from 2003 onwards saw his investments grow and trading improve having researched, developed and practiced a number of successful trading strategies, which he now shares with a broader community. Jeff has shared his in-depth knowledge of the markets by educating tens of thousands of people in Australia and New Zealand about trading and has presented for numerous organisations including Cube Financial (a subsidiary of MDS Financial), E*Trade, CMC Markets, Trading and Investing Expo and Pavilion Securities.
Jeff strives to be the best he can be by helping others improve their results in the markets and declares trading the markets as his favourite past-time! The markets are constantly changing and evolving, which ensures he keeps current and sees the need to keep learning. He is a skilled presenter, with a logical, organised and creative approach who sees himself similar to a dolphin flexible and goes with the flow!
To relax, Jeff enjoys sailing around the Bay of Islands in New Zealand (Jeff s home base is Christchurch) and when the opportunity arises unwinds in a hot spa/pool after participating in rather active sports like skiing, kayaking and windsurfing.
He has many passions and other than his partner in life and trading, he savours the beauty and driveability of his classic jaguars. It is no surprise with his love of fine women and fine cars that his favourite movie is Taxi.
