My name is Eric, my journey started when Facebook went public. I sat there with my Sharebuilder account trying to buy it at open but could not. I ended up finally getting some shares but not at the price the initial offering was set for. That was enough for me to get bit by the trading bug.
Fast forward after some rough lessons and plenty of market tuition, reality kicked in and slapped me upside my head. I need to stop trading and educate myself. Where do I start? There were gurus all over the place. Well, it was time to pay for some more tuition. Some were good, terrible and few great ones. I took nuggets from those that I could relate too.
I started to create my own trading niche around the same time I came across Barry Mohan. The first thing that caught my attention was his story on his blog. It resonated with me on so many levels. I was a business owner. I also worked construction. I was also determined and passionate. Failure was not an option.
Man I wish I ran into this guy 2 years ago. He would have saved me some money with those free videos! We met, we bonded and clicked. The rest is history.
My trading is aggressive. It’s who I am. I fought it because, Twitter and everyone told me too. Until I embraced who I was and set some rules that applied to me, I was a wreck.
My primary focus is counter trend trading. All it takes is one trade and I could be done in 30-60 minutes. I rely on Fibonacci levels along with Support/Resistance and Japanese Candlesticks. I also use Moving Averages for confluence to give me my edge.
Volume is key, but for me to find the move before the move, I rely on the above to get me in and out before the herd.
