Hi Ladies! Sorry this is such short notice, but I found out that Dan Sugar is going to be teaching the Pro Trader class next week, and he has generously agreed to speak to our group for an hour! He would like to start at 5:30, so I hope that works out for everybody. If not, come as soon as you can, since he'll only be speaking for the first hour of our meeting. Think of some good questions you'd like to ask him, or a certain topic you'd like him to address. I had him for an instructor for my Futures class a couple of years ago, and I enjoyed his class a lot! Attached is his bio:
Dan Sugar is a third generation Chicago floor trader whose grandfather was at the Chicago Butter and Egg Board for twenty years, which became the Chicago Mercantile Exchange in 1919. His father, Justin, started at the Chicago Board of Trade in 1950 and was a broker and trader in the Corn, Wheat and Soybean pits, retiring in 1982.
Dan has several years experience as a floor trader but decided to change paths and began trading Stocks, Futures, Options and Forex Currencies from the screen.
His mechanical approach to risk management is designed to maximize opportunities by taking the emotion out of trading. He understands that for traders to be successful they must develop their own specific trading plan and style consistent with their personality, objectives and risk temperament. In its purest form, trading comes down to risk vs. return.
Dan derives great professional and personal satisfaction from helping students at Online Trading Academy take responsibility and control of their future. His goal as an Instructor is to help students gain financial independence by sharing his vast knowledge and real world experiences, as well as giving them the rules and tools to become successful.
Our meeting will run from 5:30 -7:30, on Tuesday, April 23rd. If you'd like to come a little early for some social time, there are usually light snacks and beverages available in the lounge area. So come around 5:00 if you'd like to for that.
I look forward to seeing you all then! Happy trading!
