Our club is all about becoming better self directed investors and traders. Our main focus is on educating ourselves on how to self manage investment accounts such as 401Ks and IRAs and how to trade for a living.
As our club matures, our original goal of providing support and of sharing our gained knowledge remains our tenet. Our most significant learning to date is that successful investing and trading requires hard work and that Financial Prosperity comes only with the proper understanding and application of Market Knowledge, Discipline and Patience.
We strive to hold monthly group educational events based on member interests. We leverage Investment Business Daily (IDB) for market & stock fundamental investment criteria and we use the Think or Swim charting platform for technical analysis.
Remote access is available for most of our events. To attend remotely, simply click on the remote registration link that is provided within the contents of the associated meetup event.

Our trading style is best described as price structure based. Our take on indicators is that their main purpose is to help identify price patterns. Price based trading is straight forward, objective and allows one to clearly identify entry and exit points which are established via trend lines, support/resistance levels, daily trader pivots, value areas and most importantly fractal wave structure. We use standard indicators and all of our trading is fully transparent.
