Our Story

In 2014, Daniel discovered that most “ forex prop firms ” in London were focused on hiring sales staff to sell courses rather than to develop people to become real traders managing their own capital. This was the start of Daniel’s vision to build a global forex prop trading firm with an online trading floor of funded traders.

Daniel spent years working his way up to the top and gained much of his expertise from managing one of Switzerland’s most prominent prop trading firms. After years of success and achieving financial freedom, a new mission was born. Instead of retiring from the markets, Daniel committed to a new life goal by creating a global army of profitable traders.

Martin Najat was one of the students that Daniel was mentoring in one of these forex prop firms. After 4 years of not making any consistent returns, Martin felt like giving up on prop trading and continuing his career as an Investment Analyst. That all changed when Martin met the 16-year veteran trader and mentor Daniel Martin in late 2016. Martin’s talent and skill were evident to Daniel, but he was struggling with the psychological part of his trading process.

City Traders Imperium - Fundamental Analyst - Jigar Mankani

Jigar Mankani

Jigar met Daniel and Martin in a City trading floor, and they instantly connected through their shared interest and zeal for the financial markets. Having started his journey with technical analysis then eventually complementing it with fundamental analysis, Jigar always wondered why fundamental resources were either too brief or too verbose and always riddled with jargon.

He strongly believes that understanding fundamentals is arguably the main edge that the top 1% of traders have over the rest. Jigar started Capital Macro and joined CTI as their in-house fundamental macro analyst where he strives to make macro as simple as it needs to be. To achieve this he taps into passion and history in financial markets gained from working in a number of financial institutions including banks, city trading floors and financial information providers where he learnt from, and impressed, some of the most brilliant minds in the industry.
