Dan Shapiro
Founder of Access A Trader and Creator of the PS60 Process

Dan has been in the trading world since 1998. He started his career at Generic Trading in NYC as one of the early members of the top prop trading desks led by his mentor and late friend – the great Mayer Offman. He ran his first office for Generic Trading in 2001. Through this experience, he realized the importance of risk management while running a group of traders. Generic was eventually sold to the Royal Bank of Canada. Years later, he led another trading group desk at Assent that was sold to Sunguard.

Dan has traded through the Dot Com era, 9/11, and the mortgage bubble. He has traded along side some of the top prop traders during his career and made lifelong friendships. All the experience and screen time led him to start Access A Trader in 2010.

Access A Trader focuses on education and strategy in order to create intelligent traders focused on process. Dan is the proud creator of the revolutionary PS60 Process, which he uses to trade daily. In addition to his extensive career, Dan is a devoted husband and father of 2, his greatest achievement.
