Trading from home for many is a blessing, but sometimes it can be a curse. For someone that is a big socializer, they might miss the attributes of having coworkers in an office setting.
Working from home
This was my goal once I had my first daughter. How can I set up my home office to be readily available for my now 2 daughters.
I am an expat living in Quebec, Canada and I tried to go to my former career from the states of being a real estate agent. All was going well until I was told I had to pass a french exam before receiving my license as an agent.
Wouldn’t you know I passed the real estate portion of my exam, but due to health issues of my daughter I did not pass my french exam.
Sometimes the biggest negatives can be life lessons to make lemonade out of lemons. This was one example.
I did some soul searching and rediscovered my passion for stocks and studied to work from home or anywhere with internet access and my laptop.
That is when I found myself becoming a daytrader an searching for like minded people.
Day Trading Community
First step for me was looking for a mentor to learn from and a group to join as a trader. When you work from home especially as a trader it is definitely a solitary job in your home office unless you reach out to others.
I know for myself I need to have that community to hold me accountable and need fellow traders to communicate with and as a result I tested out different chat and trading rooms.
First off I found Timothy Sykes with his penny stocks program and how to be a millionaire. I hung around there for a year as part of the program and it was great for me to learn some basics. However I felt his chat room had a bunch of ego traders in there all about their profits
His strategy of penny stocks works well for him but not for me. I realized that I had to find my strategy. It was too high risk for me.
Then I tested out Ross Camerons Warrior Trading room, and I learned from some of his colleagues and learned all about the Trade Ideas Scanning Software.
After learning about the software I discovered the Trade Ideas Free Trading Room. It is a great room where Barrie the moderator helps to educate you about the software, AI and potential trades.
There are also many other great traders there and for me I found it to be a perfect fit that is until I discovered the darkpool. I’m sure I know what your next question is …..
What is the dark pool ?
Well the definition of the dark pool according to Investopedia is as follows.
You can see that the dark pool is where the big institutions and large money traders go to get the best fees and best fills for their trades.
Now how did I learn about the darkpools? Well it happened when I was writing my book, #FMJ Trust Transition Trade. It is a book about female traders with different experience from 5 months to 25+years.
One of the top seasoned traders interviewed was Stefanie Kammerman and she enlightened me on the darkpools. I became more and more curious and then asked her to speak at my trading Summit, The Modern Traders Summit.
It was there during her presentation that my interest was really peaked. Why not follow the guys placing these trades?
So I joined her in the Java Pit in 2017 and have never looked back. When you have the ability to ride the coat tails of these guys you can profit. And you can profit big time.
I would mention all the times that we have seen the prints come out before the news, but there would simply be 100s of examples. One of the most recent ones was before the potential threat of impeachment.
We say the prints happening on the indexes 3 days before the news came out. And we see it happen before major oil moves, earnings and more.
So I have found my happy trading place in the Java Pit. It is a great trading room where everyone works together to help spot these amazing trades.
Now the Java Pit is not a beginners room. If you are more of a beginner or want to learn more about trading around the dark pool and that edge then you might like the Training Pit.
Trading with an edge
Trading right off the bat is 50/50 success rate. If you can skew that in your favor then you want to stick with that edge.
The Training Pit can help to teach you the basics of trading and how to use the darkpool as your trading edge. To be honest the market is moved by the guys who have placed these trades in the darkpool.
In the beginning it can be very confusing. What is a darkpool print? What am I supposed to do with it? Once you start to see how it works for a couple of months the lightbulb turns on.
Ah hah, this is how the big guys get in before the news is announced and how they make money. I don’t need to know any insider information.
When you have the prints of the guys that are in the know you just follow them.
If you have been following me you know I am passionate about helping others learn to trade and keep their profits. Well I took the step to teach August 2019 in the Training Pit.
We help you learn more than just the mechanics of trading, but also how to set up your charts, software, terminology and much more. There are over typically 9 live webinars a week which are all downloadable if you are not able to watch them live.
This is the place I wish I discoverd back in 2019. Just like my book is one I wish I had to read breaking into the trading world, this room is one I wish I had in the beginning.
Meeting in person to relate is also huge and Traders Meet ups are amazing. This Fall I have two on my agenda and they are both free if you are interested in joining .
