Eddie Tofpik

Eddie started from school in the City of London as a Warrants Clerk for LME Metals traders Transworld Metals in 1980. Realising the potential the City had in the 1980s for growth of the financial services sector and recognising his natural savvy as a market trader in his youth in Petticoat Lane in London could be advantageous, he developed his career through Bullion trading at Mocatta & Goldsmid; Energy, Agricultural, Softs, Metals Futures and Options at Gerald Commodities, FX at Dean Witter plus FX, Futures, Equity and Fixed Income at Capcom. By 1990 he’d traded or brokered all of these & had enough expertise to have managed desks in all plus a temporary secondment to Chicago setting up there London based clients.

This year, after 26 successful years as Head of FX he moved to start a new role at ADMISI as Head of Technical Analysis and Senior Markets Analyst at ADMISI. In 1984 he was originally introduced by colleagues & friends to Technical Analysis & has been an avid practitioner ever since. Eddie is a Member of The Society of Technical Analysts in the UK and an Affiliate of the Market Technicians Association of the US. He’s also a Member of ACI-UK (the FX dealers association) & the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment.
