Welcome to I Love to Trade.com!
This website started out as a simple place for me to share trading thoughts. From these humble beginnings, I’m working hard to ensure that it will continue to grow and prove itself as a useful source of information for traders and investors. On this website you’ll find links to trading workshops that many have called the best they’ve ever attended. You’ll also find information on my New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling book, personally recommended reading, and links to other web resources that I have found to be the best of their kind. I hope you’ll join me in this incredible journey that we call trading.
I really do love to trade. Currently, I trade a combination of stocks, e-mini index futures and Forex currencies. Most of my trading is focused on shorter time frames (day trading and swing trading), but I also do some longer term trading/investing, including mutual fund timing. Outside of the time I spend on my ministry activities, family, friends, and recreation, almost everything I do is directly related to trading. My goal for this website is to share trading information that I pick up along the way.
I spent most of my early “career years” developing and applying technical problem-solving skills as a registered professional chemical engineer. During those years, I was most comfortable when I was consumed by a plant start-up. There was something truly alluring about immersing myself in the technology, processes, and people required to turn a pile of stuff into a functioning plant. I guess it’s that same allure that keeps me digging into system design and trading. Trading is just another activity where it is fun to make some sense out of the chaos.
Along my trading journey I have had the opportunity and immense honor to work with some great folks in the trading world, including Christopher Castroviejo, Van K. Tharp, Marc Chaikin, Porter Stansbury, Brad Martin, Brian June, Tom Peterson, and Steve Sjuggerud. These folks have been a great inspiration to me, and it is my hope that their work will inspire you either directly or indirectly as well. I plan to use many different tools to help convey winning trading concepts from these incredible folks, including articles, interviews, workshops, and more.
I hope that you’ll come back and join us often – we’ll be adding to the site regularly.
The book that I co-authored is called Safe Strategies for Financial Freedom. This book became a New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller because it really captures the essence of why most people struggle with managing their money. More importantly, the book shows how you can break free into financial independence! Click on the book’s cover or here for more information on this time-tested, highly acclaimed book.
