Kim Krompass is the founder of PATI (Price Action Traders Institute). The Californian licensed Certified Public Accountant owned a very successful recruiting business in 1996-2001—has an Undergraduate’s Degree in Economics, and a Master’s Degree in Business.
That being said, Kim has always been interested in the markets since her CPA days. However, she dived into the Trading industry in 2001–from stocks, to options, and commodities, she did all. Not until 2004, after retiring from her previous job, Kim discovered the foreign exchange market. But, things changed when the global financial crisis happened in 2008.
She lost a lot of money and found out her, once profitable strategy, no longer worked so well. Kim took a long break to give herself time to think about the future of her trading career. She took the plunge and learned price action trading.. Furthermore, in 2012, Krompass discovered PATI.
At PATI, she teaches aspiring traders how to trade using Price Action. Yet, before actually finding her way, she had a bad experience that made her almost give up. Her failure at that time was so fatal that she kept away from the forex market for 2 months. After a long period of evaluation, she realized that trading with a better understanding was more important than relying on mere luck.
Why Kim Krompass Started PATI
“I was different from 99% of the forex traders out there who believed the only way to make money was to trade the London session. Living in California meant I would have to either stay up all night or go to sleep while the sun was up and wake up 30 minutes before midnight and work through the night. I did it for a couple of years and it really took a toll on my health and my relationships”, Kim mutters in an interview. Krompass decided to figure out how to trade the “NY session” to get my health and my life back on track.
Discovering success, Kim started teaching her own course/strategy for other forex traders called, “How to Trade the NY Session”. Kim shares how she left a previous group after feeling less motivated.. “all came to a head for me when I worked with three guys who had zero integrity or ethics (something I noticed was common in the online forex world). I no longer wanted to be associated with them and I left”, Kim says.
In 2012, she began the Price Action Traders Institute immediately. “It was a no-brainer for me”, She adds. Word naturally got around and traders started contacting me asking me to teach them my method. They lived in the US and were very interested in my method that would show them how to trade NY. I started with no website and just a PayPal account back then. I continued to develop the method and the strategy, and as of today I have taught my method to over 1,400 traders.. Kim Krompass has a 20 year trading experience.
