My story started when I entered the Chicago Mercantile Exchange visitor gallery at its Wacker Drive address; I thought I’d died and gone to heaven. As I pressed my head against the bulletproof glass and viewed the changing numbers on the electronic price boards that circled the walls, I sensed the palpable possibilities in the air.
My story, however, started earlier. I was introduced to futures and stock trading in the early 1990s. This means I have over 30 years of experience in the field of trading. This experience and the knowledge I’ve gathered through the years have prompted me to create a TradeSelecter website for traders and investors can base their strategy.
The brokerage side of trading has never appealed to me. Instead, I’ve always been fascinated by the possibility of developing trading/investing strategies and getting those tested. As I worked on this methodology year after year, I did come up with a unique system of my own called: the Trade Selector System (TSS)
As an independent trader, I’ve been trading and investigating our world markets for over three decades. I’ve traded all major stock index futures contracts, foreign currencies, and other short/long-term financial instruments.
I believe that trading and sound investing provides tremendous opportunities in a dynamic and economically unstable world. This opportunity doesn’t discriminate – it can be tested by beginners, small companies, and large entities. It’s possible to get started with a small amount and eventually grow. The unparalleled flexibility and the strategic nature of trading/investing have determined my commitment and passion.
Let us go back to that story I shared with you in the beginning, the one about the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. I quickly understood that it’s an arena where fortunes are won and lost in a matter of seconds.
I first began doing my futures market research in 1985. That was also the year when I took my first trade. At that time, information was scarce. The vast majority of traders and investors used Fibonacci numbers and W.D. Gann's theory, moving averages, and several other conventual/proprietary indicators.
My very first efforts were crowned with success. Though I was happy, these immediate successes made me think that trading was easy. That’s how I fell into one of the common traps that so many traders and investors have the misfortune of coming across. I earned money, lost it, and felt incredibly frustrated by the process.
This website is dedicated to helping others avoid the frustration that I had to encounter in those early days. Based on my story and experience, the information I offer is a possibility for making the most of trading and investing. Go to the appropriate top menu tab to find out more about it. I hope you have a good time and find the world of trading and investing as fascinating as I do.
