Alex Wasilewski

Co-Founder and Head Trader



Alex Wasilewski is the co-founder and head trader of online futures trading sensation PureTick.com. He has been in the trading business since 1970. Mr. Wasilewski has also worked for funds, brokerage firms, the IRS, the NYPD, and is in tune with the common investor. After opening up a brokerage account at Bache & Co., while a police officer in 1980, his interest and early success trading soybeans after his night shifts prompted the local Long Island branch office manager to recruit Mr. Wasilewski to become a stock broker. He graduated the Bache (now Prudential Securities) training program, around the time the stock market started up from its lows and never looked back. Soon, the lure of independent trading began to present itself as an alternative and he is now seen as one of the most successful and honest advisors. Life changing experiences have contributed to Mr. Wasilewski's philosophy of trading: "To become successful, emulate the habits of a losing trader who became successful, rather than study those who won lotteries."
