What we’re about

This is a group for anyone interested in learning to trade and invest in stocks, options or futures. Or you may just want to better understand how your investments are correlated with each other and to the overall market. It is geared towards beginners who may have never even placed an online trade before.

While there are a number of Meetup groups that cover trading and investing strategies, they start with the presumption that their members already have their online brokerage accounts set up and funded, know how to place trades online, what types of orders to execute, and know the risks and rewards of what they are trading.

In our Meetup group you will learn the fundamentals of trading and investing, how to select an online broker, what type of brokerage account do you need-cash, margin, or portfolio margin, what type of computer equipment you may need depending on the type of trading you are interested in, the benefits and risks of position trading, swing trading and day trading, as well as the personal income taxes involved with trading and investing and the potential tax benefits.

As the group progresses, we will also get into technical and fundamental analysis and different trading strategies.

The format of the meetings will primarily be Zoom meetings every other week for 60-90 minutes. We'll save about 20 minutes each meeting for an open Q & A session. For those who would like to learn more advanced strategies we will also have Mastermind groups, both on Zoom and in person. We can also plan to have happy hours.

Looking forward to seeing you at our next event!
