Alejandro Bastidas (@atafx11 on Instagram) is a Venezuelan producer of concerts and public shows. He is also the director of GLAM magazine, and after he migrated to the United States, he became a successful trader and an expert in financial markets.
GLAM magazine is a very important magazine in Venezuela. In 2011, it was the official magazine of the most important event in the country every year, the Miss Venezuela. Also that year, Alejandro was invited to be a juror in the beauty pageant. GLAM was also the official magazine of the 2012 Aruba Film Festival and the Aruba Fashion Week.
While promoting the magazine, Alejandro moved to the United States and started working as an Uber driver for more than 14 hours a day for two years. At the same time, he was starting to learn about trading, taking seven courses on the subject and six on e-commerce.
Today, Alejandro (@atafx11 on Instagram) has more than four years of experience trading in the financial market where he focuses on Indices, Metals, Cryptos, and some Forex pairs. In particular, he manages a program he created called ATA FX 1. 0.
He already has students who are profitable and others who have managed to overcome the FTMO Company Challenge.
Alejandro (@atafx11 on Instagram) believes that these challenges are the best audit that a profitable trader can have. For some of the challenges people have to have an economic objective to earn 10% of the account (10K USD) to achieve in a given time (10 days minimum – 30 days maximum) without being able to assume a daily loss of more than 5% of the account (5K USD) or an overall loss of 10% of the account (10KUSD).
Overall, he found the motivation to start with his trading academy due to the frustration he had of living two years doing a job he had never done, being an Uber driver, and observing that many academic programs were not effective enough.
Alejandro differentiates himself from his competitors because he is always real and explicit, while others only think in personal numbers. He puts himself in the place of those people who are living through a difficult economic situation to help them in a real and effective way.
Alejandro’s future projects include resuming his live and personalized courses where he has direct contact with these students in their initial learning process. He also plans to reactivate the UPPER GLAM magazine in Miami.
