We’re now into our 9th year (Yea!) day trading Crude Oil, the E-Mini S&P, the E-Mini NASDAQ,
Gold, and the EuroFX, where we shoot for $300 to $400 a day, per position, in a LIVE! Trading Room — sometimes more — and (hopefully) help others reach their goals of financial independence and security.
Trading is a lifestyle choice. I’ll explain more about that in a minute.
But first, ask yourself whether you met or exceeded your personal trading goals in 2017? If you did, you probably wouldn’t be online looking for someone like me that can help you do it this year!
Second, let me say it took awhile to get here. I started trading stocks in the 1980s and diversified into commodity futures for the first time in 1993. Because of a bad experience with someone who “managed” my account, I started learning everything I could about swing trading . . . so I could do it for myself. And, yep, I used to have to call orders in to my Broker by phone for years. Now I can just click a mouse and be filled a second later.
Anyway, then the day trading bug bit and since late-1999, I’ve been a full-time day trader and continuing student of the markets.
I don’t think you ever stop learning since the markets are constantly changing.
And I’m still amazed at how precisely you can often enter these modern HFT computer-dominated markets . . . sometimes to-the-tick!
For those who are brand new — or are just considering day trading for the first time . . . you might be wondering what can day trading do for you? Well, it’s the perfect “job” — either a new career or a steady second income. And that’s sometimes critical in the current economy! You can work the hours (or even days) you choose — and do it from anywhere in the world with reliable broadband Internet. It can quickly build (or re-build) your retirement or your kids’ college savings accounts. It can get you out from under crushing debt.
And, when you’re profitable, it’s fun! It provides many kinds of freedoms that are unavailable from a “normal” job and so it’s a lifestyle choice.
You might also wonder, how did I come to call trades in a LIVE! Trading Room? Well, I was asked by a couple of friends to step-in and host their newborn trading room 9-years ago — at first, only for a few weeks — but I enjoyed it so much that when they quit, I kept going, and the rest is history! It’s still hard to believe the LIVE! Trading Room is older than my granddaughter . . .
Members of the LIVE! Trading Room are an intentionally small group of mostly struggling and newer traders. If that’s you — new or struggling — then I’m glad you found us and I hope you’ll join in!
