SPEAKER: Scott McCormick
Scott McCormick began his career in the financial services industry in the year 2000, with Charles Schwab & Co., Inc; after earning his FINRA Series 7 and 63 licenses Scott became a Registered Representative. As a Registered Representative, Scott was involved in assisting clients execute equity and equity option trades. In 2001, Scott began swing trading equities and equity options. After some losses, and making what appeared to be common investing mistakes, Scott realized that he had much to learn and decided to educate himself about technical analysis. His education began with the pursuit of the Charted Market Technician designation, which he earned in 2008. During his studies through the Market Technicians Association Scott found the world of forex trading which was quickly added to his trading of equities and equity options.
In 2006, Scott became a Financial Consultant with Charles Schwab after earning his FINRA Series 66 as an Investment Advisor Representative. During his time as a Financial Consultant, Scott helped high net worth clients strategize, implement, and manage equity, mutual fund, and bond portfolios. When the bear market of 2007-2008 hit, Scott quickly realized that his investment philosophy did not match that of the financial services industry; leading him in 2009, to the opportunity to begin educating retail investors.
Scott teaches his students the use of technical analysis to identify high probability trading opportunities controlled with proper risk management. When Scott is not teaching he balances his time with his own trading, and investment management of private, high net worth clients. Scott is a member of the Market Technicians Association, Society of Market Technicians, and is an Affiliate of the Chartered Financial Analyst Institute, and is currently a Level I CFA Candidate. Scott is a frequent contributor at speaking engagements throughout the greater Washington D.C. area.
