Q&A With Trader Dana
Welcome to week two of our trader interviews. This week we meet Dana. Q: How long have you been trading? A: I joined TopGun in April of '14, so a little over a year Q: How many trades do you think you average per month or year? A: 2-3 Q: Why did you decide to start stock trading? A: I am retired and wanted to supplement my income Q: Have you been to any NVOWS seminars? If so, which ones and what were your thoughts on them? A: I have been to all of them several times. Seminar I is a sales seminar, not very useful for trading IMO. The others are pretty good. Q: Is stock trading what you expected? A: Yes. It is hard work, but can be a lot of fun too. Q: Is there anything you know now that you wish you had known when you first started? A: Not really. Trading is a game of experience, not book learning. Q: Are you consistently profitable? A: So far so good. I am better at credit spreads than Calls and Puts. Q: Would you recommend someone join Top Gun? Why or why not? A: Depends on the individual. This is not a get rich quick scheme. Q: Besides NVOWS materials what other resources (books, websites, people,etc) do you use? A: Yahoo Finance, Bloomberg, CNBC. Anything else you'd want to add. I couldn't do this part time. With my personality, I need to be engaged with my trades without distraction.
