"Adam's work is excellent... and helped me move from hit and miss frustration to consistently profitable, stress free, relaxed trading. In my 10 years of trading I can't think of anyone's work I admire more."


"Adam's ability to explain things in a clear and simple way has no comparison--simply the best and crystal clear. I would recommend your work to anyone who wants to learn how to trade the markets. I could go on forever praising your work, but there is one word that says it best--it works. Simple as that."

"My trading has improved immensely and for the first time I have a sense that consistent profitability in the market is possible.... There is a saying, 'When the pupil is ready the teacher will appear.' If you're ready, Adam Grimes is a great teacher."

Successful trading is not about learning some tricks or even gaining knowledge - it's about growing to become a trader. That process - growth and becoming - is the heart of the trader's journey.



Adam Grimes has over two decades experience as a trader and system developer. He’s worked for small firms and big firms, from the farmlands of the Ohio Valley to the trading floors of the New York Mercantile Exchange. In addition to his work with MarketLife, he is also the Chief Investment Officer and Managing Partner of Waverly Advisors, LLC, an institutional research and advisory firm for which he writes daily market commentary.

His perspective is both deeply quantitative and practical, and he has done extensive personal work developing his skills as a teacher, coach, and mentor. He is fascinated by the limits of human knowledge and peak performance—specifically, how do we get there and stay there, and how to teach others to do the same? Adam’s relentless focus on trading excellence and self-development through financial markets has created a unique body of work that has helped many traders move along the path to trading success.
