Michael Patak

Founder & CEO

Michael started in the live markets at 18 by losing three $30K accounts. After losing, he found the importance of developing his skills in a simulated environment and became a professional prop trader. He then traded his own capital on the top step (yes, that’s where “Topstep” came from) in the CBOT Dow Jones Futures trading pit. Michael has helped thousands of traders learn the safe way to trade while growing the first and #1 prop firm in the industry.

Eddie Horn

Senior Performance Coach

Eddie started his career at the CME in 1985 as a runner for Thomson McKinnon Futures. From there, he gained experience in Currencies, working in the pits. Eddie’s advice and direction has given thousands of traders a more straightforward path to better habits, stronger skills, and long-term success, in his 13+ years at Topstep. Watch his Funded Trader interviews and nearly 80 podcasts on YouTube with some of the top names in the industry. 

John Hoagland

Senior Performance Coach

John has 35+ years of futures trading experience. He traded on the CME floor for 20 years before moving to the screens in 2009. As a member of the Founding Team, he’s developed thousands of traders at Topstep and is passionate about improving individual performance. Check out his educational content and Youtube. You can also catch him in Group Coaching and on TopstepTV’s daily trading broadcast, entertaining traders, seeking context, and finding opportunity.

Andre McHugh

Performance Coach

Andre has been a professional, full-time trader since 2006 and was a clerk on The CBOT floor before then. He trades primarily equity, currency, and fixed-income futures, and has been with Topstep since its founding. Catch him on TopstepTV pretty much everyday!

Dan Hodgman

Funding Coach

Dan has traded for 15+ years between Chicago prop firms, as well as his personal accounts, while simultaneously serving in the US Marine Corps. As you might guess, he’s big on discipline, and it shows in his coaching philosophy. His focus is on helping traders find Crude Oil opportunities by keeping his approach simple and risk averse.

Mick Ieronimo

Risk Manager

Mick has 20+ years of futures trading experience. After getting his start on the CME floor in Grains, he made the transition to full time discretionary trading on the screen. He also operated as a market maker for a proprietary trading firm, as well as execution for a hedge fund prior to joining Topstep in 2015 as Risk Manager.

Brett Goodwin

Jr. Risk Manager

Brett started professionally trading commodity futures full time in 2008. His primary focus is NYMEX energy futures, where he’s held a membership for 10 years. Brett joined Topstep late last year as a Jr. Risk Manager to watch traders risk levels and provide support and coaching.

Jack Pelzer

Executive Producer 

Jack traded for 7 years in the Treasury spreads group at two large Chicago prop firms. He left the industry to pursue his true love, internet content. Holding degrees in economics and business, Jack loves to look at the larger picture in the markets, evaluate trends, and hopefully present them in a somewhat entertaining manner.

Robert Cooney

Performance Coach

Robert has been trading & investing since 2002. He began day trading full-time in 2017 with stocks and crypto, switching to futures in 2018. His focus is on intraday, short-term trades on NQ, ES, RTY, and YM. He uses the “Occam’s Razor” approach meaning, “the simplest explanation is usually the best”. 

WHAT IS TOPSTEP?

Our goal is to provide a safe environment so that traders can professionalize their passion and safely engage and profit in the financial markets.

I blew a few accounts, but then they provided a Fire Drill promo. That gave me few more chances to learn and improve. Now, I have passed the challenge. Haven't took withdrawal yet but sure I'm going to take big amount out.

Started watching Topstep TV a couple days before you went 5 days and B2B. Learned more in the first week the first week than a year of youtube. It's nice to know that even the "old pros" have bad days, too. It also helps with the isolation of day trading.

Topstep is awesome. I looked at a bunch of the top prop firms and not only does Topstep have the best deal, the customer service is awesome. They also offer free resets and free combines from TopstepTV on youtube, which is also awesome! Anyway, I'm a big fan!
