After college, Ian Murphy trained in electronics and lived in Europe, North Africa and Central America. Before entering the markets, he worked in the insurance claims assessment and metal recycling industries, eventually specializing in precious metals. This brought him into contact with the financial markets and he has been an active participant ever since.

Murphy is a full-time trader offering education, analysis and tools for traders. He trades his own account using trend-following, swing-trading and day-trading strategies. Ian studied various aspects of trading with industry professionals, including psychology and methods with Dr. Alexander Elder. Murphy has also worked closely on technical analysis and strategies with Kerry Lovvorn.

Murphy Financial Trading was established in April 2016 and Way of the Trader - A Complete Guide to the Art of Financial Trading was published three years later by Harriman House. A paperback edition for the Indian Subcontinent and Chinese editions will be published in 2020.

In April 2020, a video based Online Trading Course, monthly webinars and weekday trading notes were offered to subscription clients. Personal trading consultations can also be purchased in the Store.
