This segment features an interview with a newly successful trader who describes how and why he started trading, his early success and failure and how he established a pattern of winning by adopting our trading philosophy. Hear Shawn O. tell of his trading journey.
Shawn was a successful mortgage broker until the housing crisis gutted the market. He took a buyout and decided to start trading. Unfortunately for him, it wasn't the tastytrade way.
Shawn experienced some early success but soon gave it all back. He went back and forth for a few years trying different methods to make money from directional trading. He had no consistent success and was looking for something different.
He heard about tastytrade and soon was watching and soaking up information like a sponge. The contrarianism appealed to him as did the idea of making money by improving cost basis. He met Tom at a show in 2013 at the University of Southern California. This year has seen him profitable each month except February. Recent markets have enhanced his profits and he is now up more than 20% overall and his active trading account has doubled.
Watch this segment of “Rising Stars” with Tom Sosnoff, Tony Battista and Shawn O to hear some of the details of his journey to trading successfully the tastytrade way.
