Our next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, October 23rd, from 6-8pm, at OTA. Ryan Watkins has said that he would speak to our group, so come with a topic in mind that you would like to learn about. Attached is his biograpghy from OTA's website. If you want additional information and to read student testimonials, go to: http://www.tradingacademy.com/about-us/instructors/Ryan-Watkins.aspx.
At the age of 20, Ryan got his start early in life as an active investor. His passion for trading would lead to his graduation from Online Trading Academy in 1999, and he immediately became a trader on one of the largest trading floors in the US. His passion for trading is evident in his teaching and love for the markets.
Ryan trades for a living and uses his real-life experiences in his teaching so that new traders limit the common mistakes and are able to accelerate the learning curve that all traders must go through. He believes in a learn-by-doing philosophy in that his students are completely immersed into the trading content not just by listening and reading, but by doing. This active learning style lets students develop their skills as traders and gain the confidence needed to become successful traders.
Students that complete the Professional Trader course with Ryan learn what it takes to truly become a consistently profitable trader. They discover what it takes to not lose money, as well as the importance of strict rule follow-through and discipline. Ryan believes in creating a positive and confidence building environment for students and stresses the importance of having a strong trading foundation for students to succeed.
Also, it would be fun if you could bring a trade that you made that we could discuss after he's finished speaking. There will be light snacks and beverages available in the lounge area before the meeting if you can come a little early. I look forward to seeing you all then!
