Meet The Spartan Team


nik-and-kids-260x260My name is Nikos Mermigas and I am a full time trader, Capital Manager, the Spartan Forex Trader Academy founder and author of several eBook & workbooks, like : Master Trading – Simple & Effective. I was born and grew up in Germany. 1993, at age 21 I started to work as a musician and later on as music teacher. Yes I am that old but you know what they say: Age brings Reason!

As a Music teacher I spent many years travelling with my job and juggling my family life. I finally came to the realization that this was not the life I wanted and along with a close friend I searched out that perfect job that would give me back my life and freedom.

I had experimented with the Stock market and through my quest for something better I discovered that the Forex Market very nicely met my “Freedom” Criteria. I have to say it was love at first sight. But I am sure you probably know by now, falling in love is the easy part, working on the relationship can be the hardest thing you ever do!
Since I had made up my mind that this was going to be my future I was determined to master the Forex Market and although mastering it meant much sacrifice on my part I was determined to succeed.

Just like many of you I struggled through many books, courses, systems and coaches but did not achieve the mastery I knew would buy me back my freedom.

As I studied and practiced I took the information I thought useful, and started creating my own rules and subsequently my own trading system. It took me a while to perfect but I created rules and followed them with patience and discipline. Remember I was in love and we all know when you are in love patience is a very difficult virtue to summon. That being said my patience finally paid off, things started to turn in my favor. When I doubled my account I knew I had succeeded!
I believed in myself and my rules.

Looking back, I now see that trading is not hard to learn at all. It truly can be very easy.
We all have the tendency to complicate things without having a real reason to do so and that, in my opinion, is why so many people loose in the Forex market. Many people have asked me why I teach if I am successful at trading and the answer if very simple: I absolutely love trading but remember my profession is that of a teacher so it is inherently in my blood.

Some of my friends approached me to learn my system and eventually I created a site to help facilitate teaching them.

Before I knew it, word of my system started spreading like a grape vine and I had to start formalizing the training just to keep up with varying schedules and demand.

Without planning it, the Spartan Forex Trader Academy ( www.spartantraderfx.com ) was borne and so here we are and here you are. How it happened was unplanned but I am very happy it turned out this way as I have made many new friends and I get to do the two things I love doing, trading and teaching.

Have a great day

Nikos Mermigas

Snapshot_20141108_46My name is Jeffrey Wilde aka “Dr. Jeff” and I’m a retired Doctor of Chiropractic. At one time I ran 3 offices in Australia and then one in the US.

Back then, I was working 12 hour days, six times a week and quite frankly was sick and tired of the treadmill I was on. Very hard to admit since I spent 8 years in school earning my degree and $100,000 to setup the offices.

Well fate stepped in as I received a 38 page brochure in the mail that told me about the huge sums of money that could easily be made trading commodities. I was literally hooked on trading the minute I saw a technical analysis chart and still passionate 20 years later.

I wish I could say I was a “Wall Street Whiz” but the truth is it took me many years to become profitable on a regular basis. Fortunately my 2 decades of trading have helped me separate fact from fantasy and taught me what really works day in and day out.

Over the years I’ve actively traded stocks, stock options, commodity futures, commodity options, equity futures, currency futures and forex but… At this time I primarily focus on forex and stocks.

Since 2003 I’ve written 5 books on trading and taught over 21,000 students in 124 countries. I love sharing my knowledge and I’ve found by accident that teaching others actually helped me become a more profitable trader.

I currently live in Los Angeles California and when I don’t have my head buried in the charts, I can be found motorcycle riding, running on the beach, doing yoga, Krav Maga and sipping strong espressos.

I look forward to working with you and please feel to contact me. I’m a real person and love to talk about trading. – “Dr. J”
