Mark Minervini – Momentum Masters. A Roundtable Interview with Super Traders – Minervini, Ryan, Zanger & Ritchie II, 2015
Mark Minervini is one of America’s most successful stock traders; a veteran of Wall Street for more than 30 years. To demonstrate the capabilities of his acclaimed SEPA® trading strategy, in 1997, Minervini put up $250,000 of his own money and entered the U.S. Investing Championship. Trading against stock, futures and options traders, he traded a long only stock portfolio to win the real-money investment derby with a 155% annual return, a performance that was nearly double the next nearest competing money manager.
Minervini is featured in Jack Schwager’s Stock Market Wizards; Conversations with America’s Top Stock Traders. Schwager wrote: “Minervini’s performance has been nothing short of astounding. Most traders and money managers would be delighted to have Minervini’s worst year – a 128 percent gain – as their best.”
Using his SEPA® methodology, in a five-and-a-half-year period Minervini generated a 220 percent average annual return with only one losing quarter. To put that in perspective, a $100,000 account would explode to over $30 million with those returns.
Minervini educates traders about his SEPA® approach through a service he launched is 2010 called Minervini Private Access, a streaming communication platform that allows members the unique experience of trading side-by-side with Minervini in real-time.
He also conducts an annual Master Trader Program seminar providing education about his trading methodology in a powerful weekend event.
