About

  • Adam Ryan is a professional trader, educator, and mentor. He’s been featured on the popular Chat With Traders podcast, listened to in 50+ countries (Episode 12). But Adam was not an overnight success. His first few years of trading were frustrating and included many losses. He made almost every rookie mistake a beginner could make.

    His Aha Moment happened when he realized the outcome of a series of trades matters more than any single trade. To win, you must be able to accept a loss.

    After years of sustained profitable trading, Adam decided to share the secret of his success with others. In 2014, he founded Optic Trading, an educational company that teaches traders how to trade profitably – inspired by a “pay it forward” motivation. With eight years of full-time trading under his belt (profitable for the last five), he is an educator with ongoing professional experience.
