Murray Dawes

Murray Dawes’ mission is to help you make big money from small stocks while limiting your downside risks.

Fresh out of university, he was one of five from 5,000 applicants chosen for a graduate position with the Swiss Banking Corporation — now part of banking giant UBS. The bosses quickly caught on to his potential and pushed him up the ranks as a futures broker on the floors of the Sydney Futures Exchange.

Murray later broke out on his own and developed custom trading systems to trade leveraged financial instruments like futures. Due to his success, Murray became a ‘hired gun’ trader for many of Australia’s rich and famous.

Over the last 20 years, Murray has designed custom trading systems and strategies responsible for helping a handful of ultra-wealthy clients (including one of Australia’s richest families) make a LOT of money from the markets.

For the most part, it was only Murray’s private clients who had access to his knowledge, ideas, and methods.

But after many years working behind the scenes, he’s decided to go public…and help ordinary Aussie investors to make profitable investments — more often.

  • Retirement Trader

    Murray Dawes’ Retirement Trader is one of the most impressive, most efficient, and best managed systems for trading stocks in any market that we’ve ever seen.

    It is consistently among our top-performing advisory services in terms of strike rate and the average gains versus average losses.

    Murray takes great pride in his track record and has helped his subscribers successfully trade through some extremely tricky market conditions, including the COVID panic, which saw markets crash 36% between February and March 2020.

    Murray says the secret to his success is understanding the phenomenon of ‘widening distributions’ and how price action tends to move like a magnet within them.

    That’s what makes stock price movements more predictable, says Murray, and more tradeable.
