About Warrior Trading
I launched Warrior Trading (formally Day Trade Warrior) in 2012, to help traders find their way to success. I set out with two simple goals. The first was to provide a hub where traders could come together to exchange ideas in a safe and moderated environment, and the second was to provide educational content for new traders. There were already other established day trading chat rooms, but I felt that none provided the type of market education that new traders need in order to be successful. This was based on my first hand experience of struggling to learn to trade, back in 2010. I lost over $30,000 making completely avoidable mistakes in my first year of trading. I know what it’s like to struggle as a beginner trader and to feel like all the odds are against you.
I learned the hard way that there is no such thing as easy money. When I first started trading, I wanted to be profitable, but I didn’t have the skills to generate those profits independently. In my search for that type of service, I blew through tens of thousands of dollars. The reality was that the leaders were profiting while I was losing. This is because there are too many variables to exactly match two portfolios. It wasn’t anyone’s fault except for my own, to think that I could make money in the stock market without putting in hard work. I realized that I needed to learn the details of how to trade, but I couldn’t find education that seemed like a good fit. I ultimately spent 18 months studying the markets and testing various strategies until I found success with buying breakout trades on momentum stocks.
If you have come to Warrior Trading expecting to see our trading results and then mirror the performance by following us trade for trade, you will be disappointed. We do not support the philosophy or the marketing strategy that you can profit by simply “following the leader.” In my experience, I have never met anyone who has made a career out of trading as a follower. While this may be disappointing to some traders, in this industry you have to make your own path. We will help you do that by providing you with market education, ongoing support, as well as the understanding and use of the tools required to be a profitable trader.
When I founded Warrior Trading in 2012, I created our day trading course as a program formatted in the way I wish I had been taught to day trade. I founded this business on providing education, because the only way to succeed in the market is to learn the skills to think and trade independently. The strategies we teach have been implemented and adapted successfully by traders all around the world. My wish is that Warrior Trading will help make the road to success as a trader, a little bit easier and a little bit quicker.
Working With Positive Intentions
I’m extremely proud to say that we have built Warrior Trading on purely positive marketing efforts. You will never hear me talk negatively about any of our competitors. I have the utmost respect for the fellow traders and business owners in our industry. I believed we could build Warrior Trading without negative campaigns and I’ve been right. I learned early on that there are an infinite number of ways to trade the market. If you line up 1000 successful day traders, I guarantee you each trader will have a unique strategy that aligns with their individual comfort levels and risk parameters. I can think of few things more pointless than calling out a fellow trader for their bad trades. It is impossible to be right 100% of the time. Trading is a career of statistics. If we are right more than we are wrong we come out ahead. If all 1000 successful traders were trading the same stock in 1 day, you would see 1000 unique perspectives on the price action, the proper entries, and the proper exits. Many of us may take similar entries, but some might trade the stock 20 times while others trade it only once or twice. Is one strategy better than another? Not necessarily. Each strategy must accommodate the unique risk profiles and market preferences for the person trading it. It is those concepts that we teach in our courses and that has been proven to help new traders transition into confident, consistently profitable traders in a short amount of time. In our chat room and trading courses we teach the fundamental concepts of trading. I consider each lesson to symbolize a piece from a jigsaw puzzle. We encourage you to take those pieces and put them together to form your own strategy. In this example, each of the 1000 traders will have solved the jigsaw puzzle in unique ways. This becomes the lens through which they view the market. Who am I to say your strategy is wrong? If it works for you, I respect it. For this reason, we support all of our competitors, despite sharing different views of the market on occasion.
Looking Toward The Future, 2016 and onward!
Warrior Trading has grown month over month since we opened our doors. We have continued to grow because traders find value in the education we offer. It began with just myself, and now we have grown to a team of six talented professionals. We have seen our footprint grow as more and more respected businesses look to us as providers of market education. We have been featured at eSignal, Trade-Ideas, TAS-Market Profile, Speedtrader, DAS Trader, and Market Watch. We have also been nominated for the 2016 FinTech awards by Benzinga. We are honored to be sitting along side some very respectable businesses. We now find ourselves in a position to set an example for smaller businesses. I want to let you know that we will continue to grow our business through positive marketing and brand awareness. We will never be one of those businesses who try to profit from negativity or through selling false hopes and expectations. We are a large group of traders, but we are also a close knit community. I look forward to watching each of you grow as traders. If you’re wondering where you’ll find me, it will be sitting in front of my computer, trading and teaching, Monday-Friday, as long as the stock market is operating.
