Gerrit Gerber

Professional Forex Trader


Hi there, my name is Gerrit Gerber and I'm a qualified Civil Engineer and a professional Forex trader from South Africa.

I am really passionate about the world of Forex, and have been trading the Forex markets for over 4 years now.

I love to discuss and teach Forex trading to all my friends and family, and I probably drive them nuts by now with all the Forex talk to be honest.

So that is why I decided to branch out to a much larger audience on skillshare, to connect with anyone who might be interested in learning more about Forex trading.

I look forward to sharing my passion, knowledge and experience in the Forex markets with you!
