A STORY OF FRIENDSHIP
We started our journey as a very young age, sharing an interest in music and even writing a business plan at the age of 16 as a proposal for a Music Resto Cafe, that would host musicians and have live gigs. Unfortunately, we didn't win that competition, but that was a spark of a lifelong partnership that would lead to many business ventures throughout more than 15 years of friendship and business partners. We were among the first to start a social media marketing business in Lebanon in 2011 and then co-worked on events planning that led later on to start the successful startup Off The Wall in 2016 which won several competitions and grants and later on creating a construction app for service providers called Beldit.
This hunger for success never stopped, Taha started learning about trading in the stock market in which he succeeded and failed many times because he had to learn from the mistakes he did. At this point Mustafa joined Taha in learning about the stock market but each one of them had a different strategy. This trading roller coaster to success sparked an idea to create Arab Small Cap Traders to help others trading while giving the community all our experience so that they venture into successful trading without the mistakes we had to overcome.
The tempo trader
I’ve started my trading career in 2016, the trading world has always been something that triggers my curiosity. Back when I started I was alone, scared and unsure with 0 experience to start trading.
I thought the market is for Harvard graduates, math geniuses or rich people! Turned out all you need is knowledge and the right strategy.
Even the ones that ‘claimed to be’ ” Traders” told me so many wrong facts about the trading industry and told me a lot of myths about trading that don’t exist.
I kept on doing my research on my own, and found out about my favorite zone in the stock market, the stocks that are priced between 1$ to 7$ that move faster than the Apple and Microsoft stocks and make much higher profits with less budget ‘(I started with 1500 USD).
In my first trade, I was able to buy a stock called HMNY which was promoting itself as a competitor for Netflix and their stock went from 2 to 42$ in 5 working days, I had invested 400$ only buying 200 shares at 2$ and sold in few days at 43$ gaining more than 8000 USD, at first I couldn’t believe that it’s real and I made all of that by clicking buttons on the internet, I asked my brokerage firm to send me back my profits just to make sure everything was legit. Few days later I got a notification from the bank that an amount of 8400$ is now available in my bank account and on that day I decided that I need to master this low priced stocks and treat this as a job.
By the time I am writing this, there’s 1000s of companies that do similar moves to HMNY. My 6 strategies work perfectly on these stocks on daily basis. These strategies can generate you a stable income and help you improve your quality of life. Join our community today and start your trading journey with us.
entrepreneur at heart
We all have stories. In life’s journey there are many encounters. Some are planned; some are by accident; and some by divine intervention. I was always fascinated by the world of startups and the glamour of being a successful independent entrepreneur. I wanted to be free, creative and successful and most importantly I wanted to leave the routine of 9 to 5 job.
At that time, I was working as an information technology senior trainer with a local NGO. They sent me as representative to an event called ArabNet which rocked my world with all the vibrant atmosphere of startups. I then spotted a competition for startup ideas. I went home having in mind that I want to create something that will win this competition, and that I did!
I created an architectural model in which I did 3D Projection mapping on and called the startup Off The Wall. I went on to create the first hologram in the middle east and win many awards and competitions which led me to one day to actually be a speaker on ArabNet to talk about the success of Off The Wall in the market.
By then Taha introduced me to the world of trading, which was a life changing experience that even made me rethink Off The Wall so that we can actually do an IPO for it.
As I did my research, I found out that Swing Trading and mid-term investments are my area of expertise. Through good research I was able to invest in couple of stocks that went up 300% to 600% in 6 months. ASCT is not just a platform to me and Taha, it’s a dream that came true. We found what we love, and want people to join us to seek their financial independence as we did.
We believe what makes us different makes us stronger. Building a more diverse, inclusive, and equitable organization is good for our teams, our customers, and our community. We empower each other to bring unique perspectives and experiences to work, and we continually seek new ways to do so.
