Frequently Asked Questions
Ever since I started this blog I have received hundreds of questions. In fact, I have gotten over 1500 questions, comments or emails and I have answered every single one of them based off of my truth in the moment I was writing. Some of the questions were kindly worded, praising me for my generous information and others were mean spirited and challenging my New York upbringing. However, I tried my best to keep emotions out of it and answer as truthfully as possible. In 4 years a lot has changed. My thinking has changed, my recommendations have changed, and my process has changed. In fact, if you read everything on my blog since the beginning you will see exactly what I mean. Anyway, as I stated above I get a lot of questions, most of them the same. So, here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions.
Who do you day trade with today?
I am a member of Investors Underground and you can find me in their chat room.
What stock market recommendations can you tell me about that have worked for you?
I put together a blog post here that shares all of the stock market recommendations I think will work best because they worked for me.
Do you recommend any stock market books?
Why did you stop trading with The Millionaire Challenge?
I learned a lot during my time with Tim Sykes and The Challenge but when my yearly subscription ended I decided to learn from Nathan Michaud and so I joined Investors Underground.
Were you successful in the Millionaire Challenge?
Why did you stop trading with Warrior Trading?
In my opinion, I felt they were over marketing, misleading their subscribers as well as misrepresenting their trading ability and successes.
What kind of stocks do you like to trade?
I don’t trade everyday but when I do I love day trading $15 and under stocks. You can check out my daily watch list here.
I also trade options with a special focus on covered calls.
Can I speak to you personally?
I don’t have a lot of money how can I start trading?
Take a look at my day trading series. It will help answer a lot of questions you have about trading. With that said, in order to truly trade successfully you will need enough capital to trade and that capital should not be capital you need to live off of.
Can I be a profitable trader even though I have a 9 to 5 job?
Yes and no. If you learn how to swing trade properly I am sure you could be profitable however, I personally would never recommend day trading to those with a 9 to 5 job.
What brokers do you use?
I have 3 brokers. Interactive Brokers, Fidelity and Vanguard.
Are you profitable and if so how much money do you make?
Yes and as of January 2017 you can track some of my financial Millionaire Journey here.
How much money did you start with?
To avoid the pattern day drader rule (PDT rule) I started with $25,000.00.
How should I get started?
Do you use affiliate links on your blog?
Some of the links found on this blog are from my sponsors. I thought you should know because honesty is better then sugarcoated bullsh*t.
I have read the FAQs but still have more questions to ask. Can I email you?
Absolutely. My email address can be found here.
