I am a 37 year old guy who first placed a trade in fannie mae and freddie mac back in 2008 when the market was going bad. Since then, it sparked an interest in the trading aspect and i yearned to learn more about trading. And I spoke to a friend of mine who was a SVP at AXA Financial who would sponsor me for the series 7, 66 and I eventually became a FA which I was misled at first. But the spark was in trading for my own account and not a FA. I also was told by my family not to worry about the stock market and that the family businesses are what I should consider my stock market. I had to hide the fact that I was taking courses and learning about trading and thought that I will not be able to work for a hedge fund or prop desk ever. Your books gave me clarity that It is proven that anyone can become a trader and succeed at becoming a trader and the way to view the markets and myself. I also was learning that besides all the bs in material I have read, I need to concentrate on the basics of trends and not on the latest indicator. I haven’t succeed financially to the amount of those traders, but I am sure eventually I will and with the help of your book. I will always thank the guy who came into my family’s restaurant and leaned me towards turtle traders and told me about what experiment and from then I learned about your books and learned more about trend following and how the turtles traded. So Thank you for writing such great books.
You are welcome.
