Their curriculum is really structured and well thought out. It was very easy to follow Maverick's step by step process, especially when learning such a complex instrument as options.

I recently completed the Maverick training program to qualify for their Capital Sharing. It was a rigorous program that required hard work and determination. Many of the traders at Maverick were generous enough to offer their advice when ever I had a question. I look forward to growing with Maverick. I spent many years seeking the proper training and help and you wont find many places that offer a capital sharing program as well. Maverick is willing to invest in traders who are willing to invest in themselves.

I am new to Maverick Trading, I joined September 6th, 2019 after talking with Matthew Stephenson, right after the first phone call I knew this was the place for me, Matthew and I talked over the phone several times, and I eventually went to meet with them.
I was blown away at the level of knowledge they have. I have taken all the training mudules and Matthew assisted me when I had questions or needed some guidence. I really enjoyed the entire process and learned a ton along the way. Afer completing all the requirements I was up and running just 38 days after joining with my own live account trading Maverick capital.
I also enjoy the daily recap videos and live trading sessions Maverick provides.
Matthew was great to work with and I am confident in a long profitable relationship as a Maverick Trader!

I completed Maverick's FX trader program and I am about to start trading real money. Everything in the training at Maverick is very straight forward. You need to pass all the online courses and tests, practice on the simulator and develop your own trading plan. Personally, I felt the information on setups was very basic - bull and bear reversals, etc. I feel that a trader needs a bigger edge than some of these setups and it is up to the trader to develop their own trading style based on their personality. It takes a lot of hard work on your own and Maverick will not be there to hold your hand. Maverick is always there to help in any way possible but a lot has to be done on your own. If I had any questions, Ankit or others were always very responsive. I thought the training could include a little more detail on support and resistance as well as a little more on psychology. I really enjoyed how Robb explained what to expect in 10 trades which is important to make sure you have the right.

Overall, I had a very pleasant experience with Maverick Trading during orientation and throughout the training program. Both Jade and Jeff were very informative and helpful during the initial stages of the on-boarding process. I collaborated and interacted with Robb, Joe and Vincent as part of Maverick's coaching and mentoring program; each of these individuals are experienced and intelligent. Their expertise and assistance simplified the process of developing a trading plan. I look forward to an exciting and lucrative future with Maverick. Keep up the good work Maverick Trading.

Maverick trading has been a great source of education and networking over the last several years. The coaching and daily interaction with traders is work class.

From the very beginning, starting with Matt, Jade, Imre, and Ankit I felt like I was being included in not just a massive community of traders, but more like a family of practitioners - all intent on making each other successful. I'll admit, I was skeptical about a training curriculum that I viewed as being entirely video-based, but quickly found that my assigned support team, combined with the incredibly informative training materials turned self-doubt into confidence as I approached live trading.
Maverick's approach is very deliberate, methodical and backed by empirical data and statistics - which is no doubt the reason the firm has been so successful, for so long. As if I wasn't already impressed enough by the support from the aforementioned team when I began communicating with my permanent coach, Corey, I was blown away. There is serious talent within the firm, and the best part is that it is there to help all Maverick traders achieve their goals. Corey is an incredible teacher, which when combined with his seemingly endless knowledge of Forex Trading, helps me truly understand what I need to be focused on, and how I can constantly improve my own trading procedures and setups.
Overall, I consider my choice to join Maverick one of my best life decisions. Thank you to all the Maverick team that has helped and continues to guide me going forward.

it's about the people, after all a business is just paper unless there are people working it to make it special. Maverick is just that . the people there from the top down work hard to make you feel you belong and can succeed at doing this. their training is good and personal coaching is just a phone call away even the top dog will answer questions- even dumb ones.

After you complete all the courses and download IB, you are ready to start the demo process for 2 months to show you can be a consistent/profitable trader. This is the true test to see how your trading will go. You will make mistakes because trading is not easy but you have to learn from your mistakes and keep getting better. This process could take longer for some people, it just depends on the individual. 2 months is the minimum amount of time they require to move on to trading real money.
I had experience going into this process and I have never tried another prop firm. I can't speak about other firms and the training compared to others but everything up to this point has been exactly how they have presented it to me. I hope everything moving forward goes smooth.

Maverick Trading offers a proven method to help get you started on the right path to achieving profitability in options trading. The principals themselves coach you through the training program. These are incredibly skilled individuals who have a vested interest in your success. Not a program for the hobbiest or speculator. Something I would definitely recommend if you are serious about committing time and effort and willing to learn trading the right way.

Worth every bit of effort.
I thought I was going to chafe at having my trading "supervised," but I've come to see it as an invaluable asset. I periodically need to be reminded to "trade the market in front of you, not the one you want it to be." Maverick's staff brings me back to earth, helps me refocus my portfolio and move with the market.
I've adopted their mantra of "I'd rather be profitable than right," and it has helped me put my ego behind me and concentrate on what is happening in the present. Please keep it up.

After almost 20 years in this industry, I was really wary of what Maverick and its management team, coaches, support staff, etc claimed to be. To think that a financial firm's most experienced, richest, tenured and best practitioners cared so much about the new guy seemed like a fairy tale. I'm so glad to have had my cynicism proven wrong.
I've now been trading with the firm for 4 years and this firm still impresses my consistently, on different levels. Whether it's my coach's eagerness to work with me, the mgmt's focus on creating better and better education materials or the trading community's mutual concern and desire to share trade ideas, this company has shown me that there are in fact 'good people' in the finance space.
For these and other reasons, I plan on this being my last stop with regards to my career path.

I had day traded stocks in the 90s and lost most of it in the Tech Wreck. I recently wanted to get back in the markets but wanted the knowledge and support of a firm.
Their coaching program kept me on track and motivated through the whole experience. They were never too busy to answer my questions or offer advice.
I recently graduated to the capital sharing program and am in my first month of live trading. It's an uplifting and fulfilling experience to be able to trade with confidence and support. Thank you.

I'm currently in training with Maverick Options division (they have options, forex & futures divisions).
I've been studying the markets since 2010. I've gone through other "systems" that just simply didn't work.
Maverick's system of trading makes sense. They constantly are saying, "this isn't a science", but their thorough system makes it seem like they have it broken down like a science.
It's 3 guys that give a breakdown of the markets after every day (Robb, Corey, and Joe) -they alternate day by day. I honestly can't imagine a clearer breakdown of the markets, with their knowledge in technicals, economic reports, futures, keeping up with the news, including knowing what's going on with company news, etc.
Considering what type of market we're currently in, Maverick makes sure you develop a trading plan that ensures a portfolio structure that will have you strive in that market. The training process ensures you know exactly how much to allocate per trade (position sizing) based on your Win/Loss percentage, while considering how much damage your account could withstand in worst case scenarios.
Maverick teaches you what type of option strategy to use based on the charts, relying mainly on price movement & volume (and using some secondary indicators). Not only what strategy, but also which option expirations to be using too, including which strike prices to use, considering the option greeks.
There are some reviews online that say the company is a scam. I think the reason they say it's a scam is because they don't understand this is a part time/full time career. It's going to take time & effort to understand the system and to practice it. Accept it -it'll be worth it...Another reason you may think/hear it's a scam is because of the initial $ you have to put up. It makes sense though why you need to do this. You trade with an expected possible drawdown of 20% of the account. This is what you put into your account & this is the amount that you have at risk. The company (along with all the training & coaching) provides you with additional capital to trade with. It makes sense that you put at risk your own money. Think about it. How's that a scam? lol. Like I said before, they teach you what your position sizing should be, which considers for any worst case scenarios.
Overall, this is a great company. I'll be surprised to hear about a more thorough system with a community of traders that know how to analyze the markets better than Maverick.
Hope this review helps,

I was a trader on Wall Street for 12 years. If I had received the training, mentoring, and support at my old job that I do at Maverick, I wouldn't have left. This is how trading is supposed to be done.
Review by Opuncya6 months ago
Straightforward process. Qualification program is linear with clearly defined milestones and expectations. Approval for Capital Sharing is as advertised. Getting more trading capital is just a matter of consistency. My recommendation is to find a way to make profit payouts same-day but getting them via direct deposit in two days is fine.

I started out trading part-time with Maverick three years ago. They are constantly updating their materials and refining their operations to give their traders the best opportunity to make money in the markets. I was recently downsized in my day job but I was actually happy because that was the final bit of convincing I needed to start trading full-time. I just called my coach (Joe) to tell him the news and he dropped what he was doing to give me an on-the-spot guide to what to look out for when making the transition to full-time trading. Without being asked, he scheduled me a time to speak with the firm's Chief Risk Manager to review my plan again and get some additional advice. Thanks for making this the easiest career change ever.

My MBA taught me nothing about trading. I knew how to deconstruct companies down to numbers but never learned that trading is different from investing. I originally found Maverick by reading their book. When the first chapter tells you that risk management is more important than the nuts and bolts of finding a trade, you know you're not dealing with your typical book on trading.
I joined Maverick and found that the reality of trading (and investing) bore no resemblance to what I learned in school. The environment at Maverick is a very supportive master-apprentice situation. They are radically transparent about evaluating and making trades. The cooperation is empowering. We've been taught that trading is a team sport, so people are willing and happy to share what they're looking but you don't find the hype of a chat room.
I'm still trading part-time, but I found my experience at Maverick gave me the confidence to speak up at my day job and make a case against a company we were looking to acquire. I'm now the go-to guy for market and sector analysis.

I was just learning to trade when I found Maverick. What I saw during the recruiting process stopped me in my tracks. I thought I could learn to trade just by watching a bunch of YouTube videos and I was so wrong. The team at Maverick has distilled their 20+ years of institutional experience and created a program that teaches you everything you need to know about trading professionally. On top of that they are giving you a good chunk of capital to trade from the get-go. I'm taking my wife on vacation for the first time in years with what I made trading last quarter. Hawaii here we come.

I got into this cause my clients had to keep converting their own money into dollars or Id have to get an overseas wire approved when Id sell them a car. When I asked about forex trading, one of them told me to check out Maverick. Wow! A whole world opened up to me. Being tuned in to the forex market has not only made me money there, but I got 3 referrals from telling a client to wait a week cause his home currency was gaining against the dollar! Ankit you the man!

I've traded at two other prop firms and I'm glad I came to Maverick. The management at Maverick Trading understands the industry and really took a look at what traders wanted and needed in a prop firm and delivered.
No lock-ups, monthly payouts, no commission mark-ups, no data feed mark-ups, high-water mark on profit splits. The list goes on. This is a firm that is committed to maximizing the profitability of its traders. Their continuing education keeps me engaged in the markets. The trade alerts are great. Even if you don't do the trade the firm does, it points you in a good direction to look.
They offer instruction and coaching outside of just trading. They talk about trading as a corporation, tax planning, trading a retirement account, etc. I wish I'd found them sooner but am glad I'm here now.

I became fascinated with trading when I saw my first candlestick chart a few years ago. It was at that moment, I realized that I wanted to pursue a professional career in trading. I loved everything about trading and it truly became my passion. However, despite all the studying and reading I did to try to become a profitable trader, I was unsuccessful on my own and was inevitably doomed to fail as a trader.
Between you and I, joining Maverick Trading was the best decision I’ve ever made (ssshh, don’t tell my wife that though! LOL).
The capital sharing qualification process was amazing. You learn a concept and then go practice it until you’ve mastered it. The training is very structured and makes it so much easier to master each little thing as you proceed through your journey of becoming a professional trader.
The support staff team is amazing. I’m ADHD so sometimes I have to go over a concept several times before I fully understand it. And if I was still confused, I was able to reach out to Robb, Pauline, Joe or Corey. I’m sure some of my questions were pretty stupid but they answered every single one of them. And the one-on-one coaching sessions with Joe were very helpful. I always had a lengthy list of questions ready for him, and he was ready to answer every single one of them.
I love the Sunday Trading Room, the Wednesday mid-week update and the daily market round-up videos. It helps keep me in check so I can make sure I’m not overreacting, or getting “tunnel vision.” Robb’s trading psychology videos are perfect. I literally lost count of the number of times I’ve watched them.
I can honestly say that I will never leave Maverick Trading. And I will never retire. I’m 30 years old, so that means they’re stuck with me for 50+ years. 😁

Got my butt handed to me in late 2018. Wife was not amused. Maverick's qualification program showed me why I struggled in the past and now I know what to look for in the markets and what behavior to watch out for personally.
With Maverick's guidance, was able to make back losses from 2018 in our IRAs and am back in the black. Wife is happy again and asked me why I didn't start with them earlier.
On track to start trading firm capital in Apr. Excited.

Been trading with these guys for about 7 years. High quality firm that has stood the test of time. Started with no experience and progressed through Mavericks training program and Capital sharing program without a hitch. Reallly impressived overall with the support, no pressure trading environment and ease of access to capital.
