My Story

Hi, I’m Markus Heitkoetter. Welcome to my website. It’s hard to believe that just 16 years ago I was still stuck in the corporate rat race, working for IBM. I was working 60-80 hours a week, thinking that I had “job security.” – What an illusion!

16 years ago I was still living in Munich, Germany, wondering if I will ever be able to retire comfortably and to enjoy the things that really matter in life.

And now – just 16 short years later – I’m living right at Lake Travis in Austin, TX. As I am writing these lines, I’m sitting on my deck overlooking the pool. It’s December, but the temperature are still in the upper 70s, and I’m feeling the warm sun on my face. Behind the pool I see the sail boats gracefully gliding through the lake. The kids are 13 and 16 years old now, and they are playing with Riley, our border collie.

Over the past 16 years I have been able to focus on day trading and achieve what many would call “The American Dream.” I am my own boss now, and life is good.

Markus Heitkoetter.

I really enjoyed your training yesterday. It was extraordinarily informative and gave me several great ideas for my future trading. Right now I’m buying/selling at an entry, ‘hobbyist’ level, working with limited funds. My profits and fund are growing however and I plan to employ your recommended techniques for a while and see if I become more successful. If so, I will certainly come back to Rockwell Trading to purchase your software. It was quite impressive.

I really enjoyed reading your book and your story on your website.
I felt like I was reading my own autobiography. I have blown up my trading account more than once and really felt like the only way to beat the market was to not participate. I took several years off away from the markets and now I am just getting back in. I realized that my biggest enemy was my emotions and not understanding risk or money management.  I'm ready to start trying again and your story has inspired me.
