Do I need to have a lot of trading experience to understand the DT newsletter?

We welcome neophytes, but my newsletter is written for traders who preferably have some real-life experience in U.S stock market trading. You should have a basic knowledge of stocks and understand how buying and selling equities works. You should also be familiar with the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the NASDAQ, CBOE Volatility Index (VIX), S&P 500, NYSE, ETF, long and short sales and other basic related terms. Ideally, you’ve had some small success or losses and are eager to learn more. If you’re confused by technical terms like “gaps,” “overvalued” vs. “undervalued,” “sector-wide buying,” “wedge” and “head and shoulders” chart patterns, my newsletter can explain and illustrate these concepts in a clear, visual format. The newsletter is primarily written for short-term, near-term and swing traders who hope to profit from quick moves. It is not necessarily intended for long-term investors aiming for far-off gains, although long-term investors may also benefit from the newsletter tips and education.

What’s your trading method?

My method is called Discretionary-Analysis, according to online resources, but I define it as a combination of Fundamental and Technical Analysis. Here’s how I do it: I research a stock’s company profile and financial reports (balance sheet, income statement, etc.) and then dive into its stock charts to identify actionable trading opportunities and catalysts. Corporate image and news are also key factors, because without media coverage and attention, stocks don’t behave in a predictable fashion.  My research includes chart reading and other technical indicators like simple moving average lines, MACD and RSI. But I think a further key to successful trading is to understand human behavior and disposition, because the market is driven by people – not machines. All of my tools and information help me determine: What will people make the market do? Instead of: What will the market do? See my method in action on the “3 Recent Trades” Page.

What is your rate of return?

Chasing a percentage return, to me, is very misguided. For example, if a $10 stock goes up 5%, that’s a very different thing from a $50 stock going up 5%. I prefer to focus on the most useful thing that you can invest in: yourself. My intent is that you learn something day to day instead of eyeing how much your account is up hour to hour. I’m not crazy, however. The stock market is primarily motivated by gains, so, of course, I’m here to help you make profits and sharpen your trading skills.

Do you provide real-time trade alerts?

No. The DT newsletter comes out after the market closes and provides a brief recap of the day and current market influencers along with tips and scenarios for future trades. It is not intended as a real-time trading tool but a teaching guide that shows you how professional traders think and strategize. For each stock scenario, I suggest limit prices so you can more accurately hit profitable price targets. For exit prices, I advocate using stop orders to lock in gains.

If you’re so successful, why did you start this site?

I currently work on a competitive trading floor, but my drive to pursue my degree in finance and investing came from an event we all witnessed: 9/11. Like many Americans, I witnessed the horror of the bombings and the devastating impact it had on the U.S. stock market.  I come from a family with no history of trading and investing, but after seeing an event like that shake our financial system to its core, I had to learn more. At first, I struggled with my own personal investments and I remember how that felt, along with the strong and compelling desire to get it right. I’ve been where you are, right now, and I want to help you break out of your own mental inertia, and guide you on the right track, so you too can be successful. The last thing I want to see is traders get discouraged and abandon the markets, when there is so much money to be made. As we all know, money and wealth equal freedom and the security to live how you want. The benefits aren’t just financial, but also emotional and spiritual.
