It wasn’t until Amal T.’s company went public 10 years ago, requiring him to open a brokerage account, that he become a trader. His trading journey began along a familiar path, as an expensive hobby.
In Episode 13 of Top Trader Radio, Collective2 trader leader and software developer Amal chats with Charley about familiar topics including automation, keeping emotions in check, and strategy recalibration. He also humbly attributes some of the success of his strategy to an overall strong, trending market.
Amal’s Day Trader Futures strategy is long only trend-following strategy that trades the S&P 500 and Nasdaq emini futures.
The biggest misconception to start trading is that you need a great deal of financial knowledge. Don’t get me wrong, it helps, but it’s all about understanding the psychology of trading and keeping emotions in check.
