About Joseph Gasperoni

JTrader started trading Italian stocks and covered warrants in 1999. His ambition grew and decided to take a mentor, Dr. Michele Pertile. After gaining 5 years of experience and knowledge, JTrader finally reached his goal and traded live from 2000 to 2005. During this time JTrader continued his studies which included back testing. From this he founded his proprietary indicators, JLines. After many years of success and expanding into other class assets, JTrader finally reached a point of content but also weariness. JTrader distracted himself with long term investments and real estate from 2011 to 2016. In 2016 JTrader returned to trading but the Italian Market had changed, so he had no choice but to learn a new market, the U.S. Stock Market. Within the U.S. Stock Market JTrader found more success, particularly with small caps. His success with small caps spread amongst peers and this led him to a new ambition of creating a trading community, where he could mentor and help others find the same success he has.
