Jason Needham

Jason comes from an investing family and started investing from an early age after the introduction of PEPs (personal equity plan) in the UK during the 1980’s. After a couple of decades investing through funds Jason made the move to single stocks focusing on small to mid cap growth stocks to ride big trends and larger main market shares to catch shorter swing style moves. The methods used are primarily end of day methodologies. Jason shares content via www.tradingbases.co.uk and takes you on a daily market screening routine that keeps you in tune with what the markets are doing and which stocks and sectors are trending. It’s an educational journey every day where over time you will learn how stocks actually trade and how to build a playbook around them. Jason will focus on classical charting, position sizing, risk management, trade management, daily process and market trends. He will show you how he finds the best growth stocks by introducing you to growth trends and the real fundamentals that move growth stocks.
