Research & Testing

Al is a former Signal and Image Processing Engineer turned Orthopedic Surgeon. He began discretionary trading stocks over 30 years ago using Omega Research (now Tradestation) strategies. As both he and the electronic markets matured, Al switched to discretionary swing trading of commodities eventually recognizing the benefits of fully automated breakout and mean-reversion trading. Al is an avid Scuba Diver, and when he’s not kicking butt in the markets, he’s kicking butt as a Black Belt in Isshinryu.

Operations & Strategy Leasing

Adam Sciannimanica is a firefighter from Wollongong, Australia who started out trading penny stocks before he discovered algorithmic trading. In 2018 he joined Better Trader Academy and committed to algorithmic breakout trading, growing from a 50k account to 1.2M+ in that time. When he’s not working on his trading you can find him in the ocean chasing waves, doing just about any and every ocean sport in existence and spending time with his family. His current obsession is hydrofoil and its many applications in the water.
