After a lifelong fascination with financial markets, Steve Burns started investing in 1993, and trading his own accounts in 1995. It was love at first trade. A natural teacher with a unique ability to cut through the bull and make complex ideas simple, Steve took to blogging and social media by founding New Trader U in 2011.
Since then, New Trader U has attracted hundreds of thousands of visits a month, becoming the go-to resource for people wanting to build a strong, trading foundation. New Trader U offers an extensive blog resource with more than 1,000 original articles (Steve posts daily).
Asked daily if he could mentor, Steve realized that there weren’t enough hours in the day to give everyone the attention they deserved, so the eCourses and books were developed to help beginning traders survive their first year in the markets.
Holly Burns has been a professional writer, web developer, and e-learning specialist for more than 15 years. When Steve and Holly met in 2014, they knew there was great potential to take New Trader U to the next level.
After a successful re-branding and relaunch of New Trader U, work was started immediately on the New Trader 101 and Moving Averages 101 eCourses. Acting as editor, brand manager, customer experience manager, and a few other things, Holly wears many hats at New Trader U. Together, Steve and Holly published six books in 2015.
